  Bringing the sims back to life

| | See all Haddock's reviews (12)

Imagine all the good elements of the sims 2 with expansions into a slicker, funner version..........bringing you The Sims 3.

There are many elements cut out which some may find dissapointing, such as looking after babies is much easier but the elements building on the currently stretched thin franchise have really bought it back to life. Time passes a little slower meaning you can do more with your life (with a lot more to do) and by having the entire town in one seemless environment it is no longer a chore to go anywhere and feel you cant be bothered to leave your own home.

The trait system is amazing, even by having negative traits such as heavy sleeper brings a new depth and challenge to the game. Using various combinations of traits now leads to a selection of 5 ultimate goals in either getting to the highest job in your career path but also lifestyle wants like living in the lap of luxury and these give you massive bonuses to your lifetime points once achieved to be spent on additional traits and bonus items etc.

There are so many new elements to the game i could write an essay but i will leave it by saying The Sims 3 has bought the franchise back to life, the only down side is the amount of content you will have to buy from the sims 3 website with a credit card to change into simoleons to then buy and download new items and hairstyles etc. But the bog standard game from purchase is enough to keep you amused for a very long time!

A must buy for any sims fan and even those of you who never got round to the others, it is sure worth a play.

I pre-ordered the sims 3 as soon as i could and had been excited ever since, but when i recieved it....I was GUTTED! I loved the sims & the sims 2 and thought the third one would be even better but I am sadly disappointed.

The main thing that i dislike about the sims 3 is how slow time goes, even when you speed up time it takes forever and while they sleep prepare for a long wait! All the characters look practically the same, when they visit the shops etc you can't go in there with them, you can only fish when visiting the beach, the houses arn't very nice and it is quite difficult to play as it is a challenge to get promoted and gain any skills!

Give it a go, you may like it but in my opinion it was a real let down.

The new sims game is definitly worth buying! The new neighborhood is amazing and there are lots of different shops to go to and things to do! There have been changes in gameplay, meaning you do not have aspirations andymore, but wishes. The custom colouring extra is amazing!! You can customize everything that you could possibly dream of.
Overall it is an excellent game, and I think it is really easy to play, if you are completly new to it, or have been collecting all the games so far!! :)

I had been looking forward to this game coming out for months after they pushed the release date back. But like all the hyp that went with spores this game is a let down. It runs really slow and kept restarting my computer which had all the requirements it stated for the game. Its more difficult to try and move around and you cant go to alot of places now just buy products of a list. I have loved playing the other sims games and thought this would be just as good but im going back to the sims 2 which is far better. A totally waste of money

The Sims 3 beats every other The Sims games, Everyone. The Game Runs smooth, it takes a while to install but in the end it is worth it. The Game loads up quick as well and the new features are amazing! MUST BUY! worth every penny, and im glad i saved money at play.com others are selling 35 pound!
yet again it is a must buy for any1 who likes The Sims, even if you dont like The Sims, it is a must buy.
