Sims Medieval

This will mostly be a picture of screenshots from the game that will no doubt give away spoilers, so if you don't want to know what's to come - stop now. :P (For Part Two of Pic Spam, go here)

Things I don't like about the game:
1) No aging - well infants age into children but that's it. I don't HATE this exactly because of the time period and all but I don't love it either.
2) The Camera - there are some areas in buildings that you can't spin around to get another angle - it bugs me. And TAB doesn't pop me into camera mode like it does in Sims 3, though there may be another keystroke for this?? *shrug*
3) After awhile the whole quest system can be a little tedious BUT you can ignore your quest for awhile and just free play and come back to it when you're ready with very little negative impact so minor irritant in the grand scheme of things.
4) There are still Rabbit Holes! I expected as much but still! :P

All that being said, I am really enjoying myself with this game! It's challenging but still has free play. The quests can be interesting and progress story progression at the same time. All in all, I'm enjoying it. While I won't be using it for stories probably or play it as much as I play TS3 - it's a fun game :D

Now for the screenshots!

My Monarch, Lord Hoban Washburne of This Land (bonus points if you get it)

  3. T.T WASH!!! "I think we should call this your grave!" I love that you are immortalizing the most AMAZING spaceship pilot in the history of all history (except for maybe Han Solo, but still) by putting him in Medieval. XD

    Just came here from the Sims 3 forums to check out your Medieval shots; I don't know if I'll get it myself, but it looks interesting.
