This game is brilliant and you should SO buy it. It's an investment game and I have spent many hours playing this. I can never stop when I'm on it. I love this game!!! I have also bought the Sims Ambitions, Late Night and most recently Generations, I also has World Adventures but this wasn't so good. If you liked Sims 2 you will love Sims 3.... it is leaps and bounds ahead of it!!! Buy this game and if you can the expansion packs too..... they are amazing!!
