The Sims 4 on console includes all the free feature updates from the PC version, and while they are good new additions that should have been included with The Sims 4 to begin with, they don't make up for the performance issues. Most of the problems are minor annoyances, but because save and menu bugs have been so frequent, this version of The Sims 4 is a generally unreliable experience, which is unfortunate since it is a genuinely fun game. And while it is disappointing that the console version is missing some community features from the PC version, I'm glad that at least cheats work.

It's got toddlers, swimming pools, and all the recent updates, but what this otherwise promising console port lacks is a sensible control scheme.

The Sims 4 is a lesser version compared to The Sims 3, but with some improvements post-launch and dynamic emotions in the mix, it still has a lot to offer

If you've been dying to play The Sims 4 but don't have a PC that's up to the task, this is the perfect solution. It definitely feels different on consoles, losing some of its fluidity through the gamepad, but there's nothing else like it on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
