THE SIMS

(PS2; EA; Teen) The most popular PC title of all time has finally made its way to a console. It's still the same weirdly compelling simulator of daily existence, but with a few notable new features. Along with the standard open-ended sandbox mode, there's now a mission-based ''Get a Life'' game in which you're asked to complete a series of tasks, not the least of which involves finally moving out of your mother's house. The new two-player mode lets you and a friend play dueling artificial lives. Love it or hate it -- we just hope your real lives are more interesting.
