Editors' Review

by   / March 13, 2018

Following on the heels of the success of The Sims FreePlay for Android, Electronic Arts' The Sims Mobile brings an even more fun, customizable, and accessible Sims series simulation game to your Android device. The game is free with in-app purchases.


Fully customizable characters: Create your Sims in your own image or in anyone else's with the game's myriad options for face shapes, facial features, hairstyles, clothing, and accessories. Unlock even more stylish threads as the game progresses. You can also customize your Sims' personalities by making them ambitious or flirty, for example.

Create your dream home: You may not have one in reality, but in The Sims Mobile game, you can construct the home of your dreams, complete with cool layouts, furniture, appliances, and accent items.

Choose your own adventure: You can control your Sims' storylines by selecting from among several exciting options. Choose the direction their jobs and personal relationships take and even select fun hobbies for them.

Smooth gameplay: With simple swipes and taps, you can do everything from selecting and placing furniture to approaching other Sims and taking a nap or shower. Multiplayer: The game is fun to play alone, but you can also interact with others' Sims at parties and even date them. Even better, you reap rewards for socializing, so it's a win for everyone.

Fun ways to earn rewards: You can complete a daily checklist of basic errands; quests, such as decorating your home or forming a deeper connection with another Sim; or events, where you work a shift to earn money, for example. You can also take a hands-off approach and let players do their thing, such as work a day shift for a few hours, while you get back to your own life. If you're impatient, you can also pay in the app to get ahead.

Inclusive: Sims games are inclusive, enabling players to play as gay, bi, or straight characters, depending on their preferences.


Can get redundant: You'll often find yourself performing the same actions with the same people over and over again to collect rewards. That may make sense, like when you're asking a friend how they're doing. But when you're encouraged to sip juice with the same Sim over and over again or confess your attraction to them every time you see them, it can feel like Groundhog Day.

Gibberish: We would love it if Sims communicated in English or sans language rather than that enigmatic and cacophonous gibberish. But the ability to turn sound off helps alleviate that issue, and the companion emoji bubbles and occasional English text dialog boxes do provide some context, so you can follow along.

Bottom Line

The Sims Mobile game brings everything we love about the popular Sims series: customizable characters, exciting relationships, and fun adventures and makes the game easy to play on the go on our Android phones or tablets.

How can you tell if an Android app is safe?
