If you buy the sims 3 thinking that it will be a follow on to the other sims then you will be wrong.They have changed it sooo much that its likes playing a new type of game.
Im not that impressed as i was half exspecting it to be a great follow on with much more to do.But they have added a few things and have taken everything else away.
Yh so your sim has a few more traits and a more exciting view but there are less items and more rubbish hair styles and clothes.
I have playing the sims every since the first ones cames out.To be honest i played on the sims 1 and 2 alot more then the sims 3 and it is just come out!!
I will be unistalling this game anf going back to the sims 2 as i feel there is more to that.
To me the graphics are that great and you can not do much with the neighbourhood.To be honest you can not do much with the sims themselves except go out but they get rired fast anyway.I was wanted soo much more.
