The Sims 4 - Console Edition
Top Critic Average
The king of life simulators has finally returned to consoles after a long and gruelling 6-year hiatus. But with a buttery-smooth and successful PC transfer for The Sims 4, all things are coming up Sims!
The Sims 4 for consoles is a PC port with potential. It has amazing customization and great graphics, but the buggy controls are a major disappointment.
This is a game that offers such poignant and relevant social commentary, and after many years of being either PC-exclusive, or released in a very watered down fashion on game consoles, it's great to see that this great experiment in giving us the tools to play around with humanity is finally on console in a full and unabridged way.
If you've never played The Sims before, the console version isn't a great starting place, but if you're already a convert, then it's a must-have in your collection.
The Sims 4 on both PS4 and Xbox One is a welcome addition for the series, allowing players that might not have the PC capabilities to enjoy a beloved series.
I might have been able to get past the mind-numbing monotony of this game, if it weren't so poorly designed for consoles.
The Sims is a good console game, for the ones who have never touched the PC version, because is basically the same product, with worse controls.

There's no question about it: if you want to play The Sims 4, the PC is still the best way to play it – and given that its PC system requirements are fairly low that's what we'd recommend.
While it's fun, it's not without its flaws.
I would suggest sticking with the PC version if you can. If you do decide on getting the console version, be warned, you will need to get used to the controls and even when you get used to them, you will still find them difficult to use.
