Bad

Really?!?!?

I am not the most experienced sims player ever, but I loved the sims 2, and was excited for more of the same with three. THIS DID NOT HAPPEN. Third person gameplay was the best thing to ever happen to console based sims, and it was NOT included in this one, and that fact alone lost this game 7 points in my book, everything else was flawless in my opinion. I apologize to those who like it this way, but it sucks, and I hate that I wasted my time with it.

IF YOU WANT THIRD PERSON VIEW STICK WITH 2, it was the only sims game done right.

Sims 3 is a wonderful addition to the Sims console games. A must for any serious Sims gamer and if you are new to the Sims then I would recommend trying this out for size! Only flaw is the lack of two player we loved in the previous Sims consoles games, but other features will still keep you playing for hours at a time.

I found that the Sims 3 was a great in provement on the Sims 2. There's more space to explore, more people to meet and you get to use the power of Karma on the sims. The camera work goes well in the game, but I tended to miss the first person aspect of the game. And sometimes if you have a big family it's hard to sometimes hard to keep track of them all and keep their needs up. Sure this game does have some flaws but it's great in many other ways. The possibilties are endless, you can decide the sims looks, their personallities, how they react to things, what their dreams are and you can even make them live their lives when they're dead (you playt as a ghost). sometimes it takes a little long to load, but who could blame it, the game was so hard to make it's probably to be expected to be a little glitchy. Although if you're a new comer to the Sims you may find the controls a little hard to get, but after about an hour of playing you'll get the hang of it. So in the overall of the game, it's fun and exciting with some flaws, but you won't be able to put it down for very long, it won't take a long time to get addicted. So I recommend this game.
