Comments and Ratings for The Sims™ 2: Super Collection
‘APP IS DAMAGED' (1.2.3)
3/5 By itscharliecorona
I’m giving this review on the app not the actual game itself.
Each time I downloaded the app from the app store, it came up with a ‘verifying’ message once downloaded, then it came up with a message stating the app is ‘DAMAGED’ and to reinstall it. However I have re installed the app many times, both logging out of everything and logging back in, I followed instructions by other users online on how to fix it but still did not work. I also contacted both Apple and Aspyr, eventually solving the problem by deleting the app by going to the launchpad and holding down / clicking the ‘x’ button.
So I managed to solve the problem and the game itself works perfectly - if any other users have had this problem with the app being ‘damaged’, i’d contact Aspyr and also make sure you log out of the App store and check your unfinished downloads etc and cancel everything, deleting the app from the launchpad and in the applications to make sure it will download again properly.
Great game (1.2.3)
4/5 By beckyddd
Great game, even better that it has 50% off! However, blue lines keep appearing on the screen e.g following the sim around, or following the dog. Does anyone know how to fix this or what it might be? Overall, glad to be able to play Sims on my MacBook!
Ultimately Amazing (1.2.3)
5/5 By ninaninanininanina
I’m not going to lie, this game is incredible. I like, many others, have always had a soft spot for the sims 2. I feel as though it is certainly the best out of the Sims series as it just has the most charming feel to it - it’s simple, but undeniably immersive at the same time. Although of course this app has it’s flaws, for example: it lacks a few of the best expansion packs (Apartment Life, Freetime etc.), difficulty to add modded content and other minor details, it is an impressive software and game to play with. When I first saw Aspyr had made the sims 2 compatible on mac (as previously it was Windows exclusive) I nearly died from a heart attack. Of course a few of the negatives I have previously listed leave me a bit deflated about this rendition, I truly believe the good outweighs the bad. If you are just a general lover of the gameplay of sims and the fun of just messing around, I 10/10 reccomend buying this. Furthermore, for such an amazing price point, it’s essentially a bargain. So, Aspyr, just add a few more expansions (of course at an extra price, can’t be getting cocky now) and an easier route of adding modded content and this game will be beyond 5 stars. Good job!
wont even download (1.2.3)
1/5 By Millzzzkjessup
bought a brandnew apple macbook air yesterday. bought this app. wont even download. Do not get it ….
Great Game- but would be much better if it didnt freeze. (1.2.3)
2/5 By armzy88
Downloaded it as soon as I Brought my mac. WAS SO EXCITED!! On the last 2 times I played my mac froze both times aadn had to go to task bar to have the game turned off. I was so disheartened that I have removed the game and lost the £23. Maybe will try the origin version and pray for the best!
5/5 By Pillow1860
I used to play this when i was around 7 till about 9 and i remember it always messing up our computer but i loved it so much! I had brought a few expansion packs to find they could never download. Now with a mac i thought i could never play it again and after having the sims3 pets on xbox which was just awful, im so glad to have found it here. Yes i may be a little old but the nostalgia this has brought me in the day or two uve had it has made me feel so happy! It downloaded with no issues and has been playing beautifully, with faster loading times than i remember etc. Love this and it is definetley worth the money, a great price and i have yet to explore all the features yet! If you loved it before you will love it now!
Almost perfect! (1.2.3)
5/5 By Maliceadams
I absolutely love this game and it works flawlessly on my Mac. I have installed mods and have had no issues. I have given this 5 stars because I can’t fault it; however I would like the rest of the expansion packs and stuff packs. If you’ve recently played The Sims 2 on PC and had them all installed then you will miss these expansions! This is my favourite Sims Series and am so happy to be able to play it on my Mac! XD Please, please, please complete this series! (I personally would pay for these to be added). This game is SO GOOD! Thank you Aspyr! :D
says im using an illegal version??? (1.2.3)
1/5 By veryannoyed1567
The game was working perfectly until today, now everytime I open it i get a notification saying I’m using an illegal version of the game and proceeds to crash the app, please fix this :/
Best game ever (1.2.3)
5/5 By JJ-Boom
This is ONE of the best sims games ive ever played. after watching it on youtube i became addicted! So i went over to the app store and Looked for sims games and was suprised to see sims 2! And even though it took about 2 hours to down load It was WORTH it!! If you are a expirenced sims player and wanted to play a game with fun things to do unlike 4… then i would buy it for JUST £1 ! - thats a bargin
10\10 Would buy again!
Whats all the fuss about (1.2.3)
4/5 By evan peters is bad
All these people are complaining about why it takes os long to download, I know its a pain, but its like &GB that wont be finished in a day. Be patient and if it fails to download, then try again and check to see the what the problem is.
Pretty good (1.2.3)
4/5 By xDammann
The game play is pretty smooth and I’m so happy to have it seeing as I could no longer play it on my new computer before this! Only thing stopping this from reaching 5 stars is that it doesn’t include all the expansion packs. Stuff packs I can deal without, but it’s a bit of a blow having to play without some of the old expansion packs like Apartment Life and Free Time. Would love it if these were added in a future update!!! Thanks xx
4/5 By kivakoira
This is my favourite game ever! I must of logged thousands of hours of gameplay over the years so I’m so glad to have it back. Aspyr have made it look amazing on the retina display too. my only criticism is the missing Expansion packs and Stuff packs - the game is fun at first but it would have so much more play value if these extras could be made available, even at an extra price. PLEASE ASPYR!!! release the rest of the sims 2 games for mac!!!!!
Great but wish there were more expansion packs (1.2.3)
4/5 By Nicccinooo
So happy that I can play the sims again! After transferring from PC to Mac I was so happy to see that I could download the Sims & 8 expansion packs! It’s well worth the money but after playing for a few moths now I really wish the rest of the expansion packs could be added. I know that more a few users would be more than happy!
3/5 By SassyQUeen10101
At first I was afraid, I was petrified (Of the size of the file). It took a terrible amount of time to download to my Papas got a brand new Mac. However, once it downloaded it has just been a right old hoot since get go! I have lost 5 pounds from not moving from my laptop! Thanks Apple, SIMon out xoxoxoxoxo
favourite game! (1.2.3)
3/5 By chiara bowen
I am so happy this game is avalible on mac, been playing The Sims for over 6 years love them all.
Great price, donwloaded quickly, runs smoothly and looks beautiful on mac book pro!
What would make this better if they would allow people to purchase the rest of the exaension and stuff packs.
H & M, Freetime and Ikea stuff are the greatest and i would do anythting to get them.
3/5 only because of missing stuff and expansion packs
*does anyone know if there is a way to get the rest of the stuf packs and expansion packs, really miss them* :(
Wish I hadn’t wasted my money... (1.2.3)
1/5 By 4dae8e6fac
I bought this app, extremely excited for this version of the sims (one of my all-time favourite games), only to find that every time it completes its installation it says that an ‘error occurred.’ I am playing this on a Macbook, the newest form of an apple laptop. Really, I wish that I hadnot bought this useless app.
A complete waste of my time and money (1.2.3)
1/5 By Jssecia
I purchased the game yesterday and in total have sat for around 9 hours waiting for it to download.
The first 2 times it got to over 7GB downloaded and then just stopped saying an error had occurred.
This morning I tried again and it has installed but when I click to open it it says it was not downloaded properly, so delete and download again.
I am furious as I dont really have £20 to throw away.
5/5 By Kris Lawton
absolutely love this pack! way better than the new gen sims games!! my only critiques are that custom content is a pain to install & apartment life isnt on it!! Thats the best expansion guys c'mon
5/5 By Smartymart92
Fantastic game to play as always. Really worth the money and also has great graphics. I would reccomned this game to anyone who use to play Sims 2 on Windows. So addictive to play. Thank you to Aspyr for creating this game for Mac would love to see more in the future
quitting unexpectidly (1.2.3)
1/5 By l4uren281199
I downloaded sims 2 on my macbook for these £23. After waiting a while for it to download, I open up the app and click ‘play’ only to find that the message ‘Sims 2 Super Collection quit unexpectidly’ I keep trying to press the ‘reopen’ button as it instructs you to do, but it keeps coming up with the same message, I am very dissapointed that I have spent this amount of money just to be told that..basically, the app doesn’t work. I am using it on a MacBook Pro.
Is anyone else having these issues? It’s making me want to tear my hair out as Sims is one of my all time favourite games.
If anyone has any suggestions on how to stop this from coming up, I’d very much appreciate it as I would like to play the game as soon as possible.
Not Sure (1.2.3)
2/5 By Mgill2295
Doesn’t seem to dowload- download over 2GB then stopped and now its waiting for dunno what!!!!
Installing again? (1.2.3)
1/5 By Sazzlepop23
Great game and have been enjoying it a lot but despite me playing for the last couple of days it has decided to install again and not letting me play! a bit annoyed tbh :(
Very Good - might be better to buy on Origin (1.2.3)
4/5 By KatrinaB14
I love sims 2, more then any of the other sims games so when I got my Mac downloading it was a must have. I was thrilled to see the collection was up here for such a cheep price! It is definitely worth the money. Was very disappointed however that it didn’t include Sim Apartment life! Which you can get from Origin for roughly the same price! But if you play sims regularly and want something to waste some time on, it’s worth buying. It plays really well and haven’t had any problem with glitches, lags or downloads.
3/5 By GuitarGecko94
Great to have this game back for Mac as after switching from PC, I was no longer able to play and thought I’d never be able to again! The app runs just fine and it’s bargain for what you’re getting with your money. The only downside is that it’s missing my favourite expansion pack which is Free Time as well as missing Apartment Life. It’s also missing about 6 stuff packs which means it’s missing loads of things that I used to like. I hope that Aspyr will put them in an update or create an add on for all us Simmies out there to complete the collection! However, it is worth playing as it brings back some good gaming memories.
3/5 Purely for the fact it’s missing the rest of the collection.
Where are all the PC expansion packs?! (1.2.3)
3/5 By 4square
I would give this game 4 or even 5 starts if they made available all the PC expansion packs on the Mac (espcially the Apartment Life and Mansion & Gardens expansion packs). While they’re keeping half the fun away from us Mac folk I can’t give is more than 3!
Appalling install time!! (1.2.3)
1/5 By Mollsy36828729
It’s been downloading for about 14 hours now!! it got to about 4GB out of almost 8GB and has suddenly gone right back to the start without me closing it, ending it or anything. I thought it could be my wifi but it is working fine on everything else, I’ve even tried my personal hotspot. It’s a shame as i’m sure this doesnt represent the quality of the game but i just don’t understand how the installation process can be so poor!
5/5 By SnezleySnez
Thank you Aspyr for bringing this game to Mac. Sims 2 has always been the best. It runs perfectly and loads very quick! The collection would only be complete with Apartment life though so please please please add it in the next update!!
Great value (1.2.3)
4/5 By jessica829
Love being able to have Sims 2 on my mac and this is great value for the games you get. No problems with lag at all. Only thing preventing 5 stars is the absence of my favourite expansion pack - apartment life. Would definitely be willing to pay more to add this on!
Good value (1.2.3)
5/5 By Poppyh498
Good value for money but has been downloading for over a hour and isn’t 1/3 of the way through yet!!

1/5 By Dbl300
