After changing the face of PC gaming in the late 1990's, by giving the player total control of someone else's life – albeit artificial – The Sims and its various add-ons and spin-offs have gone from strength to strength, even as far as spawning pale imitations from other developers and publishers. But The Sims is the best. Everyone knows that, no matter how much 'adult' content and nudity you manage to squeeze into a game (hello Singles).

Now the game is now expanding to the console market, with The Sims 2 rolling out across every current console, including this new version for the PSP handheld and, though it shares a name with the PC game, The Sims 2 has been taken in a fresh new direction on consoles, thereby offering a fresh experience to players. Whilst the PSP version of The Sims 2 maintains the core components of creativity and customisation that are integral to The Sims experience, it has been built from the ground up to make use of the totally different capabilities of the PSP, such as wireless gameplay.

In the PSP version you delve deep into the mysteries of Strangetown to uncover the secrets of this classic Sims 2 location and build up a palatial estate. You pursue Social, Knowledge or Money aspirations as you discover the hidden secrets of Strangetown, in five brand new neighborhoods and 20 unique locations custom-built for the PSP.

But at the same time you must also make sure to carefully balance your Wants and Fears to ensure your Sanity Meter is kept up, preventing any unsightly nervous breakdowns! You can also make use of the wireless technology of the PSP to socialize with other PSP players and swap secrets. Other features include the ability to upload your Sims and customised homes to other players via wi-fi! The multiplayer features of the game also allow you to collect and trade secrets, perks, potions and inventions.
