Not a very challenging game, and designing furniture with bits of apples stuck in them is quite bizarre.
I haven't managed to complete the game due to the frustratingly slow loading times and the lag that has developed since hitting the halfway mark.
Nothing like the DS version really; this IS the better game, having more depth, but the DS version runs a lot more smoothly.
Overall I have enjoyed playing it when whiling away a few hours, but it's certainly nothing special.
I got this game for christmas in 2007. its really fun when your new to the game but after you've done about 10 of the challenges it does start to get slightly boring and repetative. I stuck with the games to the end as I thought it would be exciting when you reach the end but it just carries on as normal really. I deafinatlly don't regret getting the game as I had real fun playing it, so if I were you, I would get it becuse it does have some really great and fun bits!
I've really never played a game as bad as this. Such a disgrace to the sims franchise. I thought it'll be the same kinda game with a cute-graphics twist, but boy was I mistaken, there is NO underlying gameplay worthwhile. Unskippable 10-minute long cutscenes, impossible slow movement and it STILL manages to freeze up every five seconds. I'd really avoid at any price, because it's very stressful.
The first week i was on it, i was hooked but in the end it gets boring and that it freezes up much of the time, i thought it was gonna be really good, but i am very disapointed
Look at the reviews to make a decision on the new one thats comming out soon...
I got this game because I had enjoyed other Sims games such as Sims 2 Pets and The Sims 2, and it was a reasonable price. When I started playing it I became addicted to it. I've been on it every single day since I've had it. Don't let the age rating put you off, this is good for all ages, young and old. If you are thinking of buying it then buy it!
