Critic Reviews for The Sims 4 - Console Edition

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

The Sims 4 comes to PS4 and Xbox One with the best of the version released for PC in 2014. It does not offer any free content besides the Happy Holidays package, but this can be complemented with the best of the catalog of packs and expansions from the day the game goes on sale. If you have not played the game yet, it is your chance.

Old school warmness for a game wich feels from another era.

The Sims 4 is a compelling game with tonnes of customisable options. Sadly, poor attention to the functionality of playing with a controller rather than keyboard and mouse, and a sparse tutorial make this version difficult to overly recommend.

As a whole, The Sims 4 can be a great game to lay on your couch and sink hours into, but many things hold it back from being the great game that is is on PC. From bugs and technical problems, to a horrible control scheme, there is a great game buried beneath problems.

The Sims 4 doesn't always feel at home on Xbox, though, with clunky menus, confusing controls, tiny text, and a mess of tutorials. But if you prefer to game on console rather than PC, The Sims 4 is still worth the time and effort.
