  1. You’re judging the game by graphics? Their new stylised look is so nice and I think it’ll compliment the quirkiness of the franchise. The gameplay is what matters overall, and remember everything so far is shown in a pre-alpha stage.

  2. The new style does bring a lot of nostalgia and I think it’s a nice look, I mean c’mon, the sims look more people than the ones in Sims 3 which looks ALL THE EF same.. so I welcome that..

    But I am extremly skeptical.. EA let me down way too much, there’s no trust anymore.

  3. I can’t wait for this game! Graphics look traditional sims/maxis and with the little we know so far it’s already outshining the sims 3.

  4. Honestly. When you compare 4 to 3, you see how 4 looks way more realistic than 3 ever did, even when 4 isn’t even trying to be realistic.

  5. Not to me. TS3 looks waaaaaaaaaaay more realistic and has 1000 times better graphics.

    TS4 graphics is too cartoonish and Disney like for my taste.

  6. “TS3 looks waaaaaaaaaaay more realistic and has 1000 times better graphics.”

    Oh really? Cos from where I’m sitting TS3 sims look like super deformed bobbleheads crossed with Pillsbury doughboy DNA.

    It’s all irrelevant at the end of the day. TS3 was plagued with braindead AI, broken routing, broken lighting, a million of other graphical and gameplay bugs and EA’s monetise it to the hilt attitude. TS4 will be more of the same only with the Origin spyware being a mandatory component.
