Guide Review - "The Sims Deluxe"
New players to "The Sims" will now buy "The Sims Deluxe" instead of "The Sims" and "Living Large." The package includes the original, the first expansion pack, along with new objects, skins, walls, and "The Sims Creator" which are only found in "The Sims Deluxe." This tool lets you create your own skins and import photos to use as faces. The tool includes a paint program to make new skins. It is a primitive tool, and those who already make skins won't find a use for it. If you already own "The Sims" and "Living Large" you won't find much in "Sims Deluxe." The extra objects and skin maker are nice, but not worth the retail price. Why five stars? Because the package contains the same great gameplay, just repackaged for new players.
