I've played and own the PC version of The Sims 3, that being said, I can honestly say this game was pretty close to being just like the PC version. I played the PC version a ton and could have seen myself doing the same with this game had I not already done pretty much everything there was to be done on the PC version. The game looks pretty nice, probably even better than what it did on my low end PC. The controls are something to get used to though. I've read through a couple other reviews crying about the controls of the game and how bad they are. Don't believe them, they're not that bad once you get the hold of them.
I gave this game a 10 since simulation games are few and far between when it comes to the console. It was a very fun game, get used to the controls and you'll be enjoying yourself.
I fell in love with this game the possibilities of free world game play are many. Not to mention the building materials in build mode are fantastic which is to why i love the sims game series i am an aspiring architect and man oh man im in heaven you can build multi floor homes. I was used to the sims game played on game cube so it was a bit weird to learn it on a totally different system but surprisingly i adapted to it fast. Lots of great pretty clothing options, build options, lots or career choices, you can actually dine out, visit the gym, visit your neighbors homes, buy cars, have birthday parties for your kids, i think even maybe your sim can even gain weight, gets pregnant and old. This is what simulation games are all about and should be like. A must play if you love simulation of real life games. A rating of 10 easily.
Sims three is a game that raves about the aspect of doing any thing you wish you could do in real life but can't and instead doing it in sims 3
but that isn't the case in this game reduced to only a small town for your player to interact in and considering all the great online capabilities of games now a days sims 3 really will let you down in that area
sims 3 greatest flaw is the fact that the entire game is as boring as real life
having to go to a time consuming job just to make minimal amounts of money and once you start a family life really sucks with an aging wife and annoying step child this game will have you hating life even more
you will like playing this game for about 1 day then its downhill from there.
