Very funrjb789 | Sept. 25, 2013 | See all rjb789's reviews »
In the Sims 3 you are left to your own devices. The game allows you to pretty much anything with the virtual characters you create in the very detailed character creator. You can make a family, have the father find a job and have the mum look after the children (or vice versa) and you have the option to speed up time so you don't have to wait for your sims to finish boring tasks and you can get to the fun stuff. You can throw house parties, get jobs, kick over bins and so much more! the game is surprisingly detailed too and the sims dialogue is frequently funny. if you like simulation games you should really play this game!
Can't deny the fun....comedychris | Aug. 15, 2013 | See all comedychris's reviews »
many people will compare this game to the likes of minecraft and animal crossing etc the likes of, not having specific objectives... to some that is boring or pointless, but i have played sims 1 and 2 and now 3 and i can honestly say that, the customization, the colorful "both literal and figurative" nature of the world and characters is undeniably amazing, it makes cleaning with a animated being, who speaks gibberish not only a fun game to play but.. something i can sit at for several hours... the choices, relationships and options in this game are fantastic and would advise anyone to try it now!
It's addicting, I'll give it that08woodh1 | Aug. 7, 2013 | See all 08woodh1's reviews »
You can do anything you want. That is all I can say. You can design and make your ideal family with the jobs and traits you want. You can make your dream family and give them the jobs you have always wanted as well as live in your perfect house. It can be challenging, but rewarding, as you start off in a slum-like house and gradually add to it, making it almost a mansion! But don't get the impression that this game is all serious; you can meet death, hold parties and be the biggest pervert in town and wonder in to peoples' houses. This game is one of a kind and I love every second of it, and hopefully you will too.

The Sims games have always been a personal favourite of mine, I've always loved being able to build my own home and family - especially with the new addition of being able to travel around the map! I've got a little family of super criminals living in a dirty looking mansion; while across the road their neighbours are all the basic perfect families! Brilliant fun.

Really is the best Sims game out there, it is basically the sims 2 but instead of focusing on your house, you can walk around the whole town. You do all the general things of Sims like take care of your hunger, hygiene and fitness. Meet friends and then make a family!
