I played this game at a friends house and it is one of the best Sims game I have EVER played! The ONLY downside to this game is the controls. I kind of wish that it had the old analog stick controls. But the gameplay itself completely covers that up. The all new Karma powers just help to make this an AWESOME game. Well peace all you Sims lovers. I is going to play my game of sims 3 i just BOUGHT!
