The Sims 2 Info
Guiding your Sims through "Life's Big Moments" takes on new importance,
as players now get a "Life Score" to measure how well they are playing
each individual Sim.
The decisions that players make throughout the lifetime of their Sims now have an impact on their long-term success or failure. A choice made as a toddler has a direct effect on the teen and adult Sim they become.
The Sims are now more aware and responsive to both other Sims and their surroundings.
Sims truly come to life now by expressing moods and feelings through more realistic body animations and for the first time facial animations.
Sims now form complex relationships and are able to distinguish between family and friends, platonic friendships and romantic love.
Sims now have DNA. Passing along physical characteristics and traits to their
offspring, Sims both resemble and behave like their ancestors.
As in real life, the appearance of the Sims now changes over time. In addition to getting older, a Sim that spends too much time on the couch will develop a paunch and a Sim that works out will enjoy rock solid abs.
An entirely new 3-D engine makes the world of The Sims 2 more life-like and
The introduction of an all-new "Create-A-Sim" feature. This allows you to customize the facial features of your Sim with a few simple clicks, to a level of detail never realized before.
Players are now able to build dwellings over two stories.
Players now have the ability to coordinate and customize the homes of their Sims to a new degree with all-new furniture, lighting and objects.
