Go Back in Time With Sims Medieval

If you've ever wanted to live in Medieval times, with kingdoms, castles, damsels and wizards, here's your chance with the new Sims Medieval Pirates and Nobles on EA Games.

Build up your own kingdom from the ground up, choosing a primary Sims hero, be it a blacksmith, a wizard or monarch to carry out a quest. But it's not as easy as it sounds; you must choose two traits AND one fatal flaw. For example, your King might be bloodthirsty, your blacksmith may be a drunk (mine is), or your pirate dastardly cruel.

Sims Medieval still has all the enjoyable Sims fundamentals - creating characters, designing and decorating living quarters, (in this case, a drafty castle) just with new game play.

Your characters have only two needs you have to tend to - hunger and energy. Modern objects are history of course, so you'll end up cooking dinner over a fire and "mailing" letters by dove.

Fulfilling quests, expanding your kingdom (mine is named "Kenz-a lot" , a play on my nickname, "Kenzie) and building houses for other heros keeps you busy. Don't forget about the quest either; send your Sims out on an adventure and prove your mettle.

Along the way, be careful not to upset the Monarch for they can send you to the stocks, or even worse, the "pit." You'll find out soon enough what dwells there.

The graphics are brillant and lifelike, and the game play intricate enough to keep coming back hour after hour. (We've lost a couple of days playing it already.)

See you in the Middle Ages.
