I'm HUGE "Sims" fan. Any "Sims" game, I MUST HAVE! I gotta admit, Sims 2 DS kinda ruined my attitude toward "Sims", but I knew I had to redeem my love for that title as soon as possible.

And this game did the trick.

First of, WAY more ways to customize your character in this game than the other "The Sims" handheld titles. You can sculpt their faces to your liking, have more clothing options, change their body type, and, my personal favorite, give them unique personalities.

Unlike the other "Sims" titles for handhelds, you can also customize their house. New furniture, floors, walls, etc. And, if you feel like it, you can build the entire house from scratch.

Other new additions like getting a job and working up the corporate ladder(I'm currently level 10 at my job and making about $3,000 a day), moving in a friend in your house, and enjoying pastimes like fishing, dancing at the club, and catching a movie are also quite fun.

But there's one thing that I, personally, think made this Nintendo DS "Sims" title stand out from all the rest.

Marriage.

Yeah, you CAN get married in this game. Not kidding. I'm married right now and sitting pretty with my husband with over $30,000. Yeah.

Lots of people are rating this game low because you can't have kids. I admit, I was slightly disappointing by that as well, but, COME ON!

What would you expect from an E rated game? Really?

Overall, this game was the BOMB!!! 9 out of 10! YOU MUST BUY, OR AT LEAST RENT, THIS GAME!!!!

I ENJOYED PLAYING SIMS 3. IT'S JUST LIKE PLAYING IT ON PLAYSTATION TWO. BUT ITS A SMALLER CONPACT VERSION.
THEY GO TO WORK, MAKE FRIENDS, BUILD YOUR HOUSE.

I believe the game developers did a nice job in making the Ds game much like the Pc game, instead of a mission only (adventure) type. I do admit waiting for the Sim to finish with work (even with the fast forward) is kinda annoying and the zooming gets frustrating, but I love the enteractions with different sims and karma powers. I think it was done well considering the limited game space for graphics and sounds ect. But I would much rather get it for the pc or 360 or Ps3.
