But that doesn't mean that this isn't a time-consuming game, I've played for over 8 hours so far and there are still things to do. For anyone who hasn't played The Sims or The Sims 2 (where have you been for the last decade?), the basic idea of the game is to create a character and live it's life - keep it happy by making it eat, keep good hygiene, making sure it's well-rested, etc. You have complete control over your "Sim" (unless you turn on the "auto" mode but where's the fun in that?). The amount of things you can do with your Sim for this iPhone version is rather impressive. I'd like to split up my descriptions of the features into six categories: town, dialogue, hobbies/mini-games, goals, money, and build mode."
