Sims 2 ships
Aspyr Media today announced it is set to begin shipping as a free download. This character-creation tool allows users to create a wide variety of unique Sims by choosing skin tone, eye color, hairstyle, facial hair, makeup, clothes and more.
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.
Players will be able to unleash their creativity as they generate their own Sims with the new Create-A-Sim. They can select from a wide-range of facial structures, makeup, clothes and more. Plus, players can build dream homes and design neighborhoods with new building, design and home furnishing options. With The Sims players for the first time ever can make films with the all-new movie-making feature.
