When I think Sims I think of controlling your whole family from in the sky. But with Sims 3 you control each and every character separately. You don't get to build a house or go different places. But all around it is fun.
i'm sorry to say this game sucks on a game system, i thought it would be much easier and better on a nintendo system then the computer but when furnishing the house i could not get the camera to turn around so that i could see other parts of the house, i was flying blind. i had a lot of fun playing it on the computer but not for the wii. not recommended.
