The Sims 3 is a very addictive game, which should come as no surprise to those who have played previous Sims games. If you have played any of the previous titles, the content of the game will be very similar, as there's not many new additions that dramatically change the gameplay. The main focus of the game is to establish a person or family and build a life - including a house, job and friends. In the Sims 3, the focus is taken away from just building a house, and there are plenty of other things for your sims to do. A major part of the game is the skill system, whereby your sims can learn musical instruments, train their fitness, or even become artists. This is a good addition which allows for alternative ways to earn money rather than just relying on occupational income. For example, a sim who trains their guitar skill can make friends with other musicians and create a band, who will perform for money. The town is also open-world, which is interesting but can be resourcefully draining on your console or pc as there's a lot more to load. If you are a Sims fan, you will definitely enjoy the Sims 3, but it doesn't offer a lot of new content and focuses less on the construction element of the games.
