Introduction

When it comes to strategic life simulation video game, The Sims 2 is still a great choice although the game is old. The Redwood Shores studio of Maxis develops Sims 2, and Electronic Arts is in charge of publishing the game. On September 14, 2004, The Sims 2 came out with a Microsoft Windows, and later on June 1, 2005, the game release a port to macOS. In general, The Sims 2 met a commercial success with one million copies in its first ten days. Moreover, the game receives a high positive view, and become the best-selling PC games at the time. Therefore, I highly recommend you to play The Sims 2, and you won’t be disappointed.

How to cheat?

If you want to have benefit in The Sims 2 by using cheats, then the cheat menu is where you need to visit firstly.

  • To open the cheat menu, you need to press Ctrl + Shift + C simultaneously, then entering the following boolProp testingCheatsEnabled true
  • Next, type in your desired cheat codes, and the game will handle it.

For example, if I enter ‘motherlode ’, I will earn 50,000 simoleans. The Sims 2 only takes a few steps to use cheat. Therefore, use it for your advantages of your gameplay experience.

More about The Sims 2

Gameplay

As I stated earlier, The Sims 2 is a strategic life simulation game. In the game, you select a specific residential lot to play, which Sims live in. The game also includes community lots, where the Sims can not live in, and the Sims can visit there to purchase stuff, and also interact with the NPCs. Moreover, The Sims 2 let you have many choices: playing on a pre-made inhabited lot, transferring a household into an unoccupied pre-built lot, or building on an empty lot.

You can switch mode in The Sims 2: live mode (default), buy mode, build mode. Still, you can not use buy and build mode while on a community lot, but you can use these modes while in the neighborhood view. In The Sims 2, you get a reward if you complete time-bound social missions successfully. What I find the game interesting is that the Sims invite the headmaster over for dinner to enroll their children in private school.

The game also features many mini-games in some expansion packs, which are running a Greek house in University, dating in Nightlife. Still, in some of the packs, they feature a variety of supernatural Sims characters such as Zombies, Vampires, Werewolves, and more. Therefore, download these packs to experiences.

Conclusion

The Sims 2 is an excellent way to entertain, complete many fascinating tasks, and create your own Sims story, if cheating is what you need, then visit the cheat menu and enter your desired cheat codes. Don’t forget to enjoy this game at our site. Have fun with the game!
