The Sims is one of the most popular games of all time and has achieved so many awards over the past decade. Even non-traditional gamers find themselves wrapped up in this award winning game. In case you are new to the Sims you get to build a house and get to live your life however you see fit. There are all kinds of comical elements packed in the game. There are also important decisions that you need to make. So, Sims fans you will not be disappointed with the latest release of this game, The Sims 3.
The biggest change to The Sims 3 is you can now explore the neighborhood at anytime without having to wait for the world to load. In fact, a lot of people believed that the previous Sims games were too limited to just your house and your character. It truly does give you the feel that you are living your life in the computer realm world. However, I would also like to point out that you can just sit back and watch your characters, which will keep themselves amused and entertained on there own.
You really do get a real life experience with the Sims 3, or at least it feels like it. People still age and eventually die, but what really makes the Sims 3 great is that new characters will appear, so you get a real sense of change. The psychological system for the Sims 3 is really quite complex and different sims react different ways to other sims. Really, one of the coolest parts about this game is sitting back and watching how everyone interacts with each other.
What is really nice about this game is they have removed the fact that you don't have to watch them go to restroom multiple times per day. Instead they will only go once per day. This gives you a lot more time to interact with them. You can use your time to develop friendships, complete daily task, ect.
So with all the positive things about The Sims 3 there are a couple negative things that might be taken into consideration. For instance, when your sims rush off to work it would be nice if they just didn't disappear. It would be nice if you could complete some kind of task for their jobs to give this a real life experience. Another thing that people might not like is the fact that it takes a lot of trial and error to create an appealing house. But, then again that is part of the game.
There is an online feature that is quite nice in The Sims 3. You can interact with other Sims players. You can download and upload your own content, which really is a great addition to The Sims 3. For the hardcore Sims players you can even start a blog, edit movies, even record your games, and share them with other players. However, this is all extra features that you do not have to use to play the game, but it is a nice change of pace.
Overall, this is a great game and its performance is great. In previous versions of The Sims you might notice that it was laggish when you had a number of sims in a small area. It does function very smoothly even though you can roam the entire town. This is a massive improvement to an already great game. This is a highly addictive game that you can entertain yourself with for hours, and hours to come. One can only wonder what extras the expansion will be packed with!
