  • Update please

    by SIM PLAYER 777BJ

    The app is really good I play this game every day But I really want the next update to open the pawn shop it's been closed for very long time. And I hope the update will have more game options. And I am also hoping the next update will have more furniture what I mean that by more electronics, plants,bathroom. stuff and more that are able to be bought in the store. And I hope that there are more options for clothes.

  • Needs Update

  • Feagit Proof Please!

    by ErikJoel

  • Terrible!!!!

    by Angelica_vela_

    Waste of my money!!!

  • Families

    by Daddyo6

    I know that one guy made it perfectly clear not to do this but I think you should be able to have kids and animals and be able to make or customize your house a little more and have things like the movies and things like that so you can go on dates we need better clothes and longer hairstyles finally it shouldn't cost so much when it gives so little.

  • Needs more

    by @imchinx

    This game would be a lot better if you could do more things ... For example: - have kids - get married - get old - more jobs - more hobbies - own a pet - make a family

  • KIDS

    by Caitirox1002

    I would love to be able to have kids.

  • Could have more but it's good

    by Ashley2219

    Could u add more to it. Like expanding the city. Add more sims n more places to go n things to do. Gets a little boring doing the same thing. And add more clothes n stuff. Maybe tattoos and peircings

  • love it

    by Jdogjjjjjjj123

    it is so awesome !!!!!!!!

  • Babies!!!

    by Music Weirdo

    by J.C.Rocks

    I am only giving you 3 stars bc I want a baby update!!! So they can have a family!! I know alot of people have requested this so hopefully they will!!

  • Super fun

    by Crook 2

    I just got this app like 10 min. ago and I already found a cheat!!! 1. Go to the lower left corner of the screen ( the menu) 2. Press gardening tips 3. Shake your device and you earn about 500 money!!!

  • Amazing game

    by We_are_young

    I live this game, but it would be better if you could have a baby. Also, I don't like how you can have multiple spouses, or you can date multiple sims at a time.

  • Waste of money

    by 0393923

    That was a waste of money out of a 25$ iTunes card that I just got today I would put 0 stars if I could so ea better get it together I want a refund

  • Update

    by Domthe bomb

    I think the game is ok. It really could use an update. Like you can have babies. More sims. I think there could be a lot more but ill just say this.

  • Just... Boring

    by Bih80

    Save yourself the $$ this is nothing like the computer game. This is a very basic boring game which you will get tired of after a couple of hours.

  • Handbags

  • App is not working

    by Sims 3 not working

    The app opens and closes right away. Already tried to delete it and reinstall it and already rebooted the phone. I got an iphone 5 with ios 7.0.4. Anybody know why is this happening?

  • corny

    by lexxgrace

    I want my money back.

  • Troy D.

    by Digdug22

    I think the simsfreeplay is way better I stopped playing this game since about 2011 has their been a updated since simsfreeplay has an update every month or two no babies it is so blurry I paid a lot of money on this their are no pets. Are in the simsfreeplay . This game was a small town it looks so old. Just make a crazy cool update for all the money I spent on it like new clothes,babies,and more HD,pets,pets,pets.


    by Ehermesman

    I wasn't going to buy this game at first because of the low rating but I decided to anyways and now it's one of my favorite games! It's a little expensive but definitely worth every penny

  • Lame

    by Creative4u2

    I would love it if you'd maybe make the games more like the computer games aka actually pregnancy, more families and animals it's super lame without it thanks.

  • Supernatural

    by Fun with Sims

    This game is fun but I think it could use more items and all the packs.

  • I Meed Neighbors on Sims Freeplay!

    by XxFamousFreakxX

    Add me on Game Center: KarinaHasAwesomeness

  • Needs something

    by Clover_Girl

    They need to add where u can control the whole family and to expand your house altogether they could make it a better app

  • Not like the game!!!!!

    by BBJC#1

    What happened to the making out and the babies???

  • Upset

    by Jokesterofficial

    I'm sorry but instead of paying 6.99 I could have just kept my sims medieval which is 4.99!! It's basically the same! I don't see any differences really and this is a big let down!! I did not expect this. If this game doesn't get updated then I want my money back!!

  • Not the sims 3

    by FunnyBunny 10

    I'm disappointed a little. It does not play like the sims 3 I know. I think the console version is better. :-(

  • Not the best

    by Tigers and pandas cute :)

    I honestly think the Sims Freeplay is a better choice. The Sims 3 doesn't have as much clothes or hair.

  • Needs update

    by Deepderpderpderpderpderp

    I like playing it but I think you should get baby's in this game

  • This games okay

    by Hay-bear99

    I think this game needs more like kids we should be able to have kids and buy new houses

  • Worst app

    by Mak984

    I spent 7.00 on this app for no reason it sounded cool but it isn't and now I have no money to get sims ambitions were u can actually have babies! I want a refund but I can't get it! Don't buy this app it is horrible! If u could have kids I would rate it five stars! This thing needs a Big update and soon!

  • Needs an update

    by Leek loves you!!!!!

    I wish your sims could have babies and the babies grow up to toddlers, pre teens, teens, adults and so on. Then every sim can start their own family so it would be endless also sims should die when they reach old age lol :) please consider this update

  • WE NEED AN UPDATE!!!!!!!

    by Wattpad hater

    Why can't there be clothes that aren't ugly? Why can't the sims have families? It's stupid! I would NEVER recommend this game to anyone even people I absolutely cannot stand!

  • update plz :3

    by Killerflower123

    I know this is sudden but if this is like sims 3 on PC why it dosnt have babies

  • Didn't meet my expectations

    by Qqqaqqqqaqqa

    Do yourself a favor and download The Sims Freeplay instead!

  • Boring....

    by Allbright_Lee

    This game is fun at first but after you make it all the way up the career ladder then what? Nothing? Also, I've been trying to get into a relationship with whoever I can but it's not letting me at all. I've spent hours flirting and complementing but they are still just "best friends" it's getting annoying! Another thing I paid for this game and it never updates? It has little to no features on it. There's hardly any choice in furniture or clothes. On my sims on my lap top is way better then this! It's the same thing? Why aren't the games the same? It's not letting me get into a romantic relationship either. I want a refund!

  • Freeplay is better

    by Vickbaby19

    I was severely disappointed when I purchased this version of sims. The sims freeplay is more realistic and fun. This was a sad waste of $6.99 and I wish I could get a refund actually. Don't even waste your money

  • Need baby

    by Room love75

    You people should put kids on the app there's no kids

  • Add more and fix...

    by Maggie Schuma

    Add babies and for some reason after I got a partner I could not woohoo... Plz fix and add

  • More customizing for sims

    by More customizing for sims

    You need to add being to make your sims fatter skinnier you name it but please add this feature I really love it but this kind of feature is the best so please add it please.thank you!

  • Computer

    by Xoxo713

    I am addicted to the sims 3 on the computer, so I decided to get it on here. It is nothing like it. You can barely do anything on the game.

  • Worst app ever

    by Pippa Jen

    The graphics are terrible, the actions are to short, most of all you have to pay to eat out of the fridge ($10) and you have to have recipes to cook!

  • Not good at all

    by Elene, Markarian

    Don't get this game! I want a refund! Don't waste your money, trust me!

  • UPDATE!!!!!!

    by Lyseebell

    Needs an update!

  • Refund

    by Ammey_xoxo

    I wat my money back you have kids

  • Bad.

    by Gamergirl123:)

    First of all the sims don't even age, you can't customize anything the clothes are ugly the hair is bad you can't have kids and there Are very limited job options, not worth 7 dollars at all. I was expecting much more and wish I could have a refund

  • Awesome game, but add more stuff to it!!

    by Char Char Goodmuffin

    I love the game, for me it's very addicting. However like other people have said, you should update it so then we have more clothing, hairstyles, home decorations, etc to choose from and DEFIANTLY update it so we can have babies!!!!

  • CRAP

    by Jjjjnj log,

    Crap i just bought it, its still loading.. By the other reviews uh oh?

  • Really Fun!!!!!!!

    by Lalala!

    This is a good game and the person in the comments who said they neglected it is wrong! You CAN live with your spouse and there are secrets in the game though they should probably update it also •other sims should be able to flirt with you sometimes. Or they do stuff with your different types of sims •when other sums do stuff to you you should be able to accept it, get insulted by it, or not accept it like when your sim is stinky and you can't talk to anybody. This is a good game

  • Babies

    by Samantha quinn

    I bought this game then I had seen on the sims ambitions that they can have babies I wasted 99c on this when I can't even have babies please this game would be the best thing if YOU COULD HAVE BABIES!! Please add babies next update!!!!

  • Update

    by Game bou

    This app stinks jobs, girls, places are limited and can't have children no custom house please update

  • Disappointed

    by Michael Rhodes

    App won't even open on my iPhone 5s needs to be updated waste of my money.

  • BULLCrap

    by Hitmanhg47



    by Love.sahak

    This is a awesome app but no baby! PLZ update I bet a lot of people said this but just do it PLZ I WANT BABY!

  • Bad!

    by sabr77thooo

    Reminds me of a pre game for sims ! Hard to do things!

  • 50/50

    by Woolygal15

    I Love the sims and I was super excited to get the sims 3 but when I got it I wasn't what I was hoping for and I tryed to find the "try for a baby" button but it wasn't there so we need updates and babies

  • This game stinks

    by Horsesalive

    Don't waste your money like I did also it is to confusing and they need to add kids and they are lucky I even gave it two stars

  • I bought this game but IT'S SO BAAAAD

    by El mejor juego de la app store



    by Beanirene235

    Please make an update with kids and your own house desings!

  • It's ok.....

    by Mac1059

    It's a fun game but it starts to get a little boring. Also I think you should be able to name your children once you get them and you should also be able to know what gender the baby is because I can't tell if my child is a boy or a girl

  • Ausome but needs some changes

    by Lisamomonthego

    You should be able to have kids and why don't you move in with your spouse when you get married

  • Boring

    by Kb5556789

    Hate it not worth the amount!

  • Incredibly disappointed.

    by Thanya Cruz

    The sims freeplay is better. I didnt waste money for this. Refund please.

  • Best game ever

    by Jessica Das.

    Trust me if you like sims it's the best


    by TheBOSS8211

    Pretty fun needs an update for switching sims kids more sims in the town

  • Only 2 bad things...

    by Shelb999999 :)

    The only thing I don't like about this app is that there should be more clothes to choose from and the furniture and stuff should be cheaper! Otherwise I like this game! AND I WANT KIDS!!!!! PLZ FIX!!!!!

  • Import

    by Visker123

    I can't import my sim into another game without it saying it is not "Valid". I can't believe I paid 6.99 plus the 2.99 for the other game if simple errors like this can't be fixed...and atleast update your app for iOS 7

  • You get what you pay for.

    by Mcshmevin

    Expectations, for me, my expectations are low, very low. For 99 cents I could go down to the nearest 7-11 and buy a donut, or gum, or even a lottery scratcher. For you selfish folks posting bad reviews, you must think that the dollar is worth alot in this day of age. But let me say, it's not. For 99 cents I would be happy with just a sim character creator. Just putting it out there, if you want children, pets, or a barber shop in your town, I don't care what, buy the sims 3, on steam

  • Boring!!!

    by Ryan33194

    It's not fun at all I should get a refund!! For every job I get I die after a week of working there. It Makes me so Bored. WORST GAME EVER!!!

  • Babies !!!!!

    by Princess2985

    I love this game but I think it should be where you can have babies and stuff like that on the pc....

  • Four Stars And Update

    by _Girl_

    Four Stars Until Someone updates this game I already beat the game! We should be able to customize our houses and our sims. Please add more clothes, people, towns, and, shops! Nothing like the sims 3 for PC make it almost like it! A lot of people aren't happy I will report this game it's nothing like what I expected .

  • It's cool but...

    by AbiLovesBlue

    It's cool but it doesnt have that many clothing or hair selections. It would be cool if we could make more than one sim. It needs more stores like for food but cheap. We should be able to have choices between houses or apartments.

  • Same as the other ones

    by Gamer18660

    This game is the exact same thing as the sims 3 ambitions. Don't buy it unless you don't have a limit on the number of apps you can buy. This game is no longer updated and you can't do anything other than get a job, go to work and slightly customize a house with the same 10pieces of furniture. You will be bored to death with what ea has done to the once great sims series. Don't buy it, trust me.

  • This is stupid

    by Erin Moore

    Sims Freeplay is better you can do so much more stuff

  • UM No!

    by Omqcat

    Horrible app! I want a refund

  • Not worth the money

    by Farmerfeet

    Sims freeplay is 100x better you can't do anything. I wish I never bought this game.

  • No way...

    by Zamora1884

    Don't buy this, it dose not compare the the real game.

  • Needs work

    by Has so much realisim

    It could use a few things that others have that's this game needs 1. You can get sims killed on other versions 2. Children 3. More options on maps 4. The ability to kill other sims and create more than one sim

  • Not worth it

    by Arules99

    This app is not worth the 7 bucks at all I wish I could have my 7 bucks back!!!!!

  • :-(

    by Freddystarfleet

    I bought the app and it didn't even download it and I don't even know how to get my money back

  • :-(

    by Freddystarfleet

    I bought the app and it didn't even download it and I don't even know how to get my money back

  • Un-Playable

    by Eharris1206

    This app isn't worth the cost. You can't do anything at all. No pets, not children, and no way to customize your home. If you want a sim game, I suggest getting the Sims Freeplay.
