If you have enjoyed the sims series since the first one released. You should try the sims 3. Playing on the consle is a bit different but also easier in a way. This is not like the sims 2 back on the consle, you have the classic over head view. Some points that i liked were the added karma powers. I know the previews of the game has show cased this. So you have your good and your bad powers. You can use them how ever you like and on any sim. It can come in handy a lot of the time. At midnight every night something magical happens. Of corse the freedom of the game is a plus. Your not contained to your house/yard anymore. You can interact with any sim you can find, develop a relationship and maybe start a life. The living mode is and always has been the same, in the sims 3 you get a little bit more choice on what you want your life time wish to be. The traits you select for your sim affects the life time choices you can pick from. The designing of the game is great. Any object you want you can change the color and personalize your house to your liking. Whats really cool is you can change the color of your lights in the house. In this game i didnt really find much that I didnt like about it. It kept me up for 24 hours and didnt bore me with anything. It still has that element of addiction if anyone knows what I mean. So if you like the sims give this one a try, im sure you will enjoy it very much. 8.5/10

if u loved the sims 2 for specific reasons over sims 1...this isnt your game. we see loss in manual movement and less comic humor. this versoin is more influenced on real life. This is good if that is what you want, however. The graphics are good, but the camera sucks and gets quit annoying. i like the ability to chose cars and build a garage, and six story houses are pretty cool too. you have the ability to buy and rename tons of buisnesses and establishments around town aswell. My biggest problem with this game is how quickly your mood goes down. it is like 3x faster then sims 2...im talkin you eat, take a shower then you hunger is half gone again! But you can interact with the town and its many features and people ranging from todler to elder. the biggest new feature is the karma. this allows you to chose one spell, some good some evil and use it on people or things. This ame is fun indeed, but if u play it in excess of 4 hours...your not goimg to want to play it again for a while.

Don't get me wrong, this game and sims 2 are awesome, i just wish the controls were like ordinary ps3 games not COMPUTERIZED! Well, if you just started playing the ps3 and you use the computer A LOT or if your a huge fan of sims itself, then this is for you. But it's kinda hard to adjust to these controls if your a ps3/Xbox360 expert (like me) and used to the original controls. So its mainly based on your opinion, but otherwise, this game is great! Advice about the freezing: its probably freezing if u have a bunch of saved games, data, music, etc., because this game takes up a bunch of space (GB), so you are going to have to delete a ton of stuff to play this, unless you like it freezing.

If you are used to the original controls of ps3 and have a ps2, GET sims 2!
