Where's My Widescreen TV?!?!

I like The Sims 2 on PC, it has a lot of objects, there's a lot of stuff you do, you have aspirations and the whole generation thing. The Sims 2 on PS2 on the other hand has none of those except the aspirations.

First of all, the people look stupid with the way their jaw is always looks like it's pointing at something (kinda like King Kong), and they're always leaning backwards a little so it looks like they think they're fat even though you can make them as skinny as Mr. Bean. But making the characters isn't too bad, the clothes look good and there's lots to choose from. But the only problem is that you have to unlock all of the good ones. I don't really see why we should have to since on PC you can just make whoever you want look like whatever you want striaght up.

The camera is good and the walls don't get in the way thanks to them dissapearing when you go close up. But the game has horrible loading, after my character went to work one day, he came back home and was standing outside the car door for ten hours(Sims hours) because it wouldn't load fast enough! That was half the day gone and i needed that time to build up his attributes and get a better mood so he can get a promotion!

There aren't enough objects on this game although they have added some others that aren't on the PC version, like a trampoline for example. Getting food from the fridge is better because you can choose what type of food you want to mix with other one, you could even have flour on your steak. Or you can have a meal of two different types of cooking oils. However this can get quite frustrating to go through all that every time you get a meal, which isn't good because when you do eat you're still hungry untill you have finished a second meal.

This time around you can choose whether to control your character in the classic Sims way by using the pointer, but there is also the new way of actually controlling them, meaning like of GTA or Metal Gear Solid, you can even make them run!

Personally I like The Sims Bustin' Out better, it has a better story mode (which is horrible on The Sims 2 by the way, it's not even a story), the people look better and it has kids! Which is the major problem with this game because the generations is what made The Sims 2 what it is.
