The Sims 2 for Mac
($50) has been declared gold for Mac and will soon begin shipping. In The Sims 2, players pick one of five aspirations that will take them through an entire lifetime, "from the cradle to the grave." Players will be able to choose from Popularity, Fortune, Family, Knowledge and Romance which will determine how each Sim will lead their life. "With these aspirations, players can fulfill their Sims’ wants while avoiding their worst fears." Every choice that is made has an effect on the life of a Sim. "More life-like Sims, all-new aspirational gameplay, and the ground-breaking addition of genetics, with the DNA of Sims passed down through generations, gives players a more vivid, realistic, and in-depth Sims experience." All of this takes place in a new amazingly realistic 3-D world."
