The Sims FreePlay (iOS) [ Review ]
Electronic Arts' The Sims franchise has existed for a very long time now, being their version of Nintendo's Mario franchise.

The Sims Medieval (iOS) [ Review ]
The Sims franchise has had various mutations, making it somewhat like a video game version of Charles Darwin's theories on evolution in that it always tries to survive in a world full of change and progress. It's not easy for a supposedly old game franchise to remain relevant when things like Call of Duty and Halo coming about to scream like an obnoxious 13-year-old who just killed you with a headshot in Black Ops.
This new addition to The Sims for the iOS mobile platform leans towards a more RPG-based approach. It's still about taking control of a sim's life, but [...More
