The Sims 3 Game PC & MAC Product Description

Please note artwork may vary

The game that first opened up the world of video games to a wider audience is back, going beyond being just a virtual dollhouse to a complete interactive neighbourhood. The basic concept is still the same though, as you create your own computerised family and help (or hinder) them in achieving their lifetime dreams.

Instead of just dealing with one house at a time though, your whole sims town is part of one continuous map, with neighbours going about their business independently. Likewise your own family can explore at will and interact with any and all buildings and people.

Once fully grown a sim can have up to 60 personality traits - from loner to flirt - all of which you can influence via their environment and the people they interact with. However you want to play and whatever you want to do it's easier than ever to create your own virtual soap opera.

  • New Seamless, Open Neighbourhood - Explore the Neighbourhood Freely: See the sights with your Sims! The new seamless neighbourhood architecture allows your Sims to roam freely around the neighbourhood and visit their loved one and friends or foes. Discovering other Sims homes and families, traveling around to new locations like City Hall or the local park will create a whole new way of life for your Sims.
  • New Create A Sim - Create Any Sim You Can Imagine: In addition to the open, living neighbourhood, the all-new Create-a-Sim interface will feature easy-to-use design tools that allow you to make truly detailed Sims that are more realistic than ever. Create-a-Sim gives you the incredible freedom to customise just about any Sim you can imagine.
  • New Realistic Personalities - Every Sim Is A Unique Person, With A Distinct Personality: With the innovative and proprietary Realistic Personality System in The Sims 3, you can attribute each character with five distinct personality traits, helping shape yourSims behaviour and how they interact with others and their surroundings. This new system will empower you to create extremely complex and diverse in-game personalities.
  • New Unlimited Customisation - Everyone Can Customise Everything! New and accessible creativity tools in The Sims 3 make it simple for anyone to customise anything, anywhere! From floors to flowers, fashions to sofas, wallpaper to window shades and more, The Sims 3 gives you all the flexibility and options you need to be the architect of your dream house or explore your interior design skills to outfit your ultimate home.

Reviews of The Sims 3 Game PC & MAC

This game is just like other Sims games, but better, just as the franchise seems to do. They make a game about taking care of a family and made it better with each addition whether it be an expansion pack or a sequel and with the long-anticipated The Sims 4 due in 2014, the games are just going to be better and better yet. Great game, get it.

Great game, have owned for about 5 years and own almost all DLC packs. This is definitely a major improvement over The Sims 2 in the graphical department, it is very GPU thirsty! Only receives 4.5 stars from me for a few little nit-picky reasons. First of all, the save file is about 500 - 700MB, a pain if you have your Documents sync'd to the cloud. Secondly, custom content is integrated poorly, can cause game to freeze and crash. And lastly, DLC packs can cost the equivalent (or more) that the base game costs (now). Overall a very good game, certain DLC adds useful items, whereas paying $20 for a handful of digital cars (Fast Lane Stuff) is not.

Fun as hell for a simulator game, the fact you can make your sim as quirky as you like and be an astronaut, is the most fun thing you can do, they have lots of dlc and its makes it worth your while because the replay ability is amazing. You have pretty much endless things to do I give it 4.5 out of 5 as a game.

The Sims 3 is a fantastic life simulator where you live and guide the life of your family/sim. Nothing is more satisfying than watching and working all your sim's life and watching their children continue the name. I will and have recommended this game to my friends. With a lot, and I mean a lot of customization with your sim and their house. Old and young gamers are welcome to this game and will enjoy every minute of it.
