I am a huge sim fan.
Although, there is a few things lacking in this game.
1. When you sleep (sometimes) the time doesn't speed up. It's slow down from time to time, and when you're working; the time doesn't speed up, so im waiting for a good 5/10mins before my sim is at home again.
2. There is only one area where you can actually be, and there needs to be much more houses to buy and more people.
3. I have to make a new family each time. Unlike sims 2, you could just create a family right away and move them in, then remain doing the same thing. Plus, they meet new people as well and are actually IN the game when you do meet a new family. The sims 3 doesn't have that.
That's mainly my problems with this game. I like the fact they have tried it to make it look real, and it isn't bad at all. I enjoy this game alot, but as i said above; only a few things lack here and there. I feel like it has been rushed in some-way.
HOWEVER, there is alot to do in this game. It maybe a little tad slow for the 360, but its a good game. I would give it a 3 star, but since im a sim fan, im giving it a 4 for now.
I hope they bring out a sims 4, and make it better than anything. This time, hopefully not rushed in any way as possible.
