The LEAST of all the Sims Games

I've been a fan of the Sims ever since the original for PC all those years ago, so when I heard 3 was coming out, I was so excited!

Honestly, I think I'll stick to my old versions.

First, I don't know who worked on this game, but I'm not sure it is the actual SIMS company: the humor that used to be present is in much lower doses. Also, the graphics of it are really primitive, like the company turned it over to their team of interns to make. There are a number of glitches, as if they didn't bother to do any beta testing (like the sink falling through the counter, as someone else mentioned).

You know the new intern team the company must have put this in the hands of? They must have been all guys! There are more options to customize male sims (adult and child) than female! What's with that?

Then, of course, the big gripe: the game kills off your character after 50 days! Kaput, just like that. No sort of wrap up on the happiness points or anything else you've been working on. Lame.

So, if you're looking to get your Sims fix for Wii, maybe try out this really flawed version, but check out Sims 2 Castaway, or maybe MySims Agents. And let's just hope the company listens to the feedback and actually puts some EFFORT into the next installment.

This game had huge hype, and I have been a fan of most console Sims games. I just played this game for a couple of hours and grew bored of it. The graphics remind me of the Sims 1 for the PC. This is awful. Not only that but the create a sim leaves a lot to be desired. The way to build a home was difficult, I had an easier time building a house in My Sims. I ended up not caring and puting everything in one room. The interactions were disappointing and the game took too long to load. It was difficult to even point on the desired item I wanted. The only good about this game is being able to go into peoples homes, use their shower, sleep, steal food or items. All in all if you want a game where you can run around as a customized person, play Saints Row 2. Then you could at least steal cars, and pick real fights with random people.

I'm a HUGE fan of the Sims. So when hearing that they were going to release it of the Wii. I Freaked. But maybe that freak out was a watse. With the game disc i gotten. I got a couple of giltches on. For example, if you buy a sink, after awhile you can't use it and you can't sell it too. You're going to have to move in order for it to work again. In my opinon this game could of been great for me. Just that all the giltches and bugs stopped that from happening.
