Not what I expected

I fell in love with sims and sims 2 so naturally when sims 3 came out I wanted to try it out. Recently my mother purchased a Wii for my nephews so I decided to try Sims 3 out on the Wii. I was terribly dissapointed. The one key feature that I loved about Sims and Sims 2 was the build mode, which is almost non-existant in Sims 3. You can not build your own building at least not that I was able to do on the Wii. The only way you could really build anything was to pick an already constructed building and then add walls to the interior. You cannot add walls to the exterior of the buildings and you can not change a one level to a two level house. These are things that I miss most because my mother is a habitual re-arranger. So I would use my Sims game to create new spaces in my home and work out a plan of attack before we even got started so she could see a 3D mock up of what the finished room would look like. I did not try it in any other formate so it might be a little different for different systems but as far as the Wii is concerned I would not recomend this game unless the you really do not care about the build mode.

Really Bad

Sims and Wii bad mix.

I love all the versions of the sims I've ever played, with the exception of the Urbz, but the Sims 3 for the Wii is terrible. The controls are NOT user friendly. Building a house was a nightmare, I kept selecting the same item and couldn't figure out how to put up new walls. After only 45 minutes I gave up and stopped playing. I will give the PS3 version a try and see if it's the game or just the system. My opinion is that it's the system, but I will be back to review the PS3 version whenever it comes available.

Overwhelming in a bad way

Sims 3 for Wii is way too cluttered. It tries to do way too much without really providing anything. It is a pale comparison to the PS3 version, let alone the computer version. Also the multiplayer is downright useless.
