The Sims Social, just hit Facebook!

Ea are going nuts with Facebook games, and one of their biggest franchises just joined the fun

With the many Facebook out there, the competition is hard. They all want you to log in every 30 minute, to water your flowers, harvest your crops, upgrade your barracks or what ever. So what does The Sims Social offer that is different and exciting. Well first of all it looks great and it runs even greater. Everything works just right. Secondly its probably the most social Facebook yet, it is for me the first I've seen where you can interact with your friends.
Compared to a regular Sims game, like Sims 3 it lacks a bit of entertainment, keep in mind this is a free Facebook game so it doesn't really matter that much.
It reminds me a lot of The Sims Bustin' Out, a console game released a few years back.



So.. in The Sims Social, you are allowed to create one Sim, to represent your self. This Sim gets a house to live in, with a dirty backyard and an even messier pavement. When you do stuff like talk to friends, practice guitar and so on you use up your energy, this energy is refilled by one energy pr. 4th minute. Stuff like sleeping, eating, shitting and showering wont drain energy but will give you "inspiration" (the normal energy in The Sims 3)
The game is still in open beta so it is very unstably at the moment, (myself keeps getting stuck at the 35% loading)
