What’s it like to play in first person?
Playing through your Sims’ eyes is an interesting experience. You definitely feel more involved in what’s happening in the world you’ve created, but it’s not perfect. From time to time, you’ll see parts of their bodies slip through, which can be a little strange.
The camera is also a bit harder to control in our experience, as your Sims are autonomous and can look where they want. So sometimes there can be a little struggle for control. All in all though, it’s definitely a great way to spice up your Sims 4 gameplay!
