    Is the Sims 2 worth the $50?

    Would it run OK on a iBook G4 1.33 with 512 RAM?

    It runs painfully on my 1.5 ghz powerbook (64 meg video memory)

    Fun game, but its not worth it if its slow and laggy.
    Gets you real into it for about a couple months, but then you really don't feel like playing. At least i don't.

    so it would probably suck on an 800MHz iMac G4 w/768MB RAM?

    No, I do not think it would run very well on your iMac G4. :(

    i had the sims 2 on an ibook 1.33GHz with 1.25GB of RAM-it ran awful and i ended up selling the game

    the sims 2 has too many options and is too complicated in my opinion, the sims is much nicer
