The ever-popular series of games, The Sims, finds itself in a completely different setting than its usual white-picket fence neighbourhood in this latest iteration. The Sims Medieval is a fantasy world inhabited by goblins, monsters, kings and knights. Rather than play a life not so dissimilar to your own, you can now play as The Watcher for a bunch of Sims from a more adventurous age. Along with the change in setting comes another alteration that affects the gameplay. The traditional focus of the game is shared with an RPG style of gameplay complete with quests, character traits and experience levels. Are fans of The Sims being bestowed with a gratifying vicissitude, or has that core experience been lost under all the medieval lore?
