this was a major disappointment. The controls are horrible. The camera does wierd things, moves in a jumpy akward way, and zooms at akward angles. I tried to continue playing despite the frustrating controls, and it was too much to just ignore.
Other than that, this game is pretty much the same as the computer version. There are karma points, but they're nothing particularly spectacular.
Overall this game was disappointing.
there are a couple i can name off the bat, if you have a baby on your lot and it is in its crib and one of the parents leaves the lot and you follow the sim when you go back to viewing/controlling the lot the baby will be outside causing the other (sleeping!) parent to wake up and go outside to retrieve the baby... VERY annoying
I bought a car and that same day the sim went to work with it and didnt come back with it now it is lost in the game... waste of simoleons!
the fast forward speed is WAYYYY too slow causing lots of gameplay where you are either waiting for your sims to complete work watching nothing or watching sims sleep. i think watching paint dry would be more entertaining than watching z's float across the screen
the sims should NEVER be on anything but pc... even with pc you have the drastic differences in hardware specs deeming it necesary to buy upgrades for your computer every year or so or suffer the lag and slow load times... so id just as soon not play the sims franchise anymore
I enjoyed all of the sims games since Sims 2. Sims 3 offers an endless experience allowing you to have children and watch them grow to become adults and have children. The game will continue without end generation after generation. Personality modeling is good. Could use a larger selection of items. Personalization is good. There are some glitches such as the opportunities for computer sims does not function correctly but the game will flow despite. Could be a little more challenging but that would probably be a nightmare for first time sims players.
