The Sims 3 product reviews

The Sims 3 lets you immerse truly unique Sims in an open, living neighborhood just outside their door! The freedom of The Sims 3 will inspire you with endless possibilities and amuse you with unexpected moments of surprise and mischief. Your Sims can roam throughout their neighborhood, visit neighbors' homes, and explore the surroundings. They can stroll downtown to hang out with friends, meet someone new at the park, or run into colleagues on the street. If your Sims are in the right place at the right time, who knows what might happen?! New easy-to-use design tools allow for unlimited customization to make truly individual Sims.

Determine your Sims' shape and size, from thin to full-figured to muscular-and everything in between! Choose your Sims' facial features, their exact skin tone, hair eye shape and color and select their clothing and accessories. Create realistic Sims with distinctive personalities. Select from dozens of personality traits and combine them in fun ways. The combination of traits you choose-brave, artistic, loner, perfectionist, klepto, romantic, clumsy, paranoid, and much, much more-help shape the behavior of your Sims and how they interact with other Sims. Your Sims can now rise above their basic set of every day needs. They are complex individuals with unique personalities.

Build your dream house or design the ultimate home. Customize everything from floors to flowers, shirts to sofas, wallpaper to window shades. It's fun and easy to change colors and patterns giving you endless personalization options. Or you can populate your Sims' neighborhood with pre-designed buildings and furnishings. Which of your Sims will live in high-end mansions, cool bachelor pads, ultimate dream homes or low-cost cottages?

The sims 3 is one of the best things to have happened to me. I managed to get it super cheap one day in a sale and since then my life has never been the same.

The game in many ways can be compared almost to 'playing God' as you are in complete control of the actions of your sims. You can create a sim from scratch, with the ability to choose all sorts of things like appearance, traits, and a lifetime wish just to name a few. From there it's up to you to keep your sims alive and to give them a fulfilling life experience. You can bring your dreams to reality in the sims, start a family, design a house, become a police officer, chef, author, doctor, or even a criminal!

The controls are super easy to get the hang of, you use the arrow keys plus a few others on your keyboard to move the camera view, and then the rest of it is all just point and click! There are keyboard shortcuts you can learn as well if you'd prefer not to click every time, buts that's purely based on the preference of the player because it works just as well if you don't use them.

I honestly can not recommend this game enough, I always find myself starting a game to pass some time and then the next thing I know it's dark outside because I've just spent hours controlling my sims life. You can get so many hours of game play from a single family. Start with one or more sims and expand out from there, make friends, start relationships, get married, have kids, and then once your first sim dies of old age (or a fire... or an electrical accident... or from drowning because you removed the ladder from the pool) the game can still continue with the rest of the family. Though if your sims does die that doesn't mean the end of them, they can be brought back as ghosts!

Another great thing about the sims games is that they also have expansion packs you can get to spice things up a bit. Whether you want pets, seasons, or supernatural, or anything else, there's heaps of content to be found over all the various expansion packs and hours and hours of content to choose from.

I've already recommended this game to pretty much everyone I know because I love it so much. I get super immersed in the lives of my sims to the point where sometimes I can spend the whole day at my computer... so a pre-warning should probably be put in place here, if you do buy this game expect to become addicted to it right away!
