The Sims will return to PC in 2014! We're already placing bets on the number of expansion packs we'll eventually see augmenting the next instalment of the famous life-simulator series. Ten? Twenty? Perhaps more. Either way we can look forward to the "most expressive, surprising and charming Sims" according to EA, who pointedly describe The Sims 4 as a "single-player offline experience." That'll come as a relief to those who had to put up with EA and Maxis' SimCity launch. Hopefully the developers can avoid a similar kerfuffle and deliver another cheerful and addictive sequel.

Once more with feeling: this is a fine if familiar base game with great creative tools.
