Very Disappointing

The Wii version of The Sims is a huge letdown. I would rather play the Nintendo Gamecube version! Although the graphics are better in the Wii version and you can freely roam your town, the time it takes to load gets frustrating quickly. Also, your sim only lives for 50 days! Another favorite feature of mine with The Sims was being able to build your house from scratch. Not in this version! They give you a house with just the four outside walls. Granted, you can add walls however you like inside the house, but that's it. Building more walls outside to make your house bigger is unavailable. From what I've seen on the PC version of this game, they cut out A LOT of options for building for the Wii version. One more thing I found irritating was how you can freely move your sim. You don't just point at something you want your sim to do and he walks there and does it. Instead you actually control your sim and have to make him walk there (which is more like a run). It's hard to control and I ended up running into more walls and furniture just trying to get to the desired location. Very frustrating. One last thing that was a big letdown was the multiplayer function. My fiancee and I were very excited to play our sims at the same time, but soon discovered that the multiplayer function was nothing more than some silly questions being asked and you had to answer them the way your sim would want you to...or something like that. We were so bored with it we shut it off after just two questions. So overall, in my opinion, I'll stick with my GameCube version of the Sims 3 and have already sent back the Wii version. Glad I rented it before buying!!!

Well i rented The Sims 3 for the Wii mostly to see what they did with multiplayer since i enjoyed it so much on the PS2 version. They could have done A LOT better it's like the dumbest mini game in the world. Why not just make it split screen multiplayer i'm sure everyone would agree that it would be tons of fun. But no they make a stupid mini multiplayer game, worst ever.

I am extremely disappointed in EA that they would put out something as terrible as the multiplayer is in this game. I can play single player Sims on the PC and i was really looking forward to the multiplayer on the Wii. I better off buying a new PS2 buying the The Sims for that and i will have 1000x more fun then i had with this version.
