This is easily the best Sims game ever, and I can easily say that without a doubt because I'm a very big Sims fan. This game has everything you want to do and can do and that is this game best quality. In my opinion, I prefer controling the Sim like in Sims 2 pets rather than how you control the Sim in Sims 3, but Sims 3 is way more better then Sims 2 pets by a longshot. This is a game you can play and easily realize later on you were playing for 3 hours. I recommend that this game be on everyone's "Most Wanted Games" list.
The Sims 3 is probably the best console version EA/Maxis has released, it stays true to the PC format of the game. The most useful advice I can give is to save the game to your hard drive to speed up the load screens between the ares of the town. There was one downer I encountered, I found an unpatched glitch that caused the broken object noise to continuously play and my in depth wishes and opportunity panel to be useless. Still it was an enjoyable game and very play worthy.
I have never played a sims game until I played this one, And i gotta say im pleased! Although after reading some of the other reviews about this game I heard a lot of complaints about it being boring, and I agree to a certain extent with that. This games is far from terrible, but it could have been better. This game is like a game of life which is what makes this game a unique title and really fun to play! Although it really is kinda annoying hearing those sims talk in their weird squeaky language and I dont see why they cant speak English. Also the time in this game is really fast, and I cant get much dont in a day when it takes like nearly an hour just to wash a couple of dishes. Also I seem to find my character needing to sleep an awful lot which is why I said i agree that this game can get kinda boring. But other than those few complaints I dont have any problems with the game, Their are tons of fun in this game, and tons to do! The Karma powers are really fun to use and it never fails to amuse me seeing a sim just fail at everything after using the "Epic Fail" Karma power! For those of you who love to go for achievements such as myself i can honestly tell you this is one of the best achievement lists ive seen in a long time! The achievements involve everything from throwing an awesome party to Extinguishing a fire from a family member! I Highly suggest buying this game If you want to do everything this game has to offer! And if your like I was a few days ago never playing a sims game, This game is a must play!
