Nothings improved but the graphics
24 July 2009 | by sam_aj_01See all my reviews

The Sims 3 was one of the most anticipated games ever, I cant say that it has paid off all that well.

For the first 10 days I was totally glued to it, I think my computer saw more of me than anyone else. After that I practically mastered the game by building a dream home, achieving life-long wishes, getting married and having children (certainly got me hooked). Despite all of that its difficult to do things as your Sim needs food, comfort, rest and entertainment constantly...

To be honest, I consider myself lucky for being able to play this game, I know that out of 5 of my friends who bought this, only 2 can play it because it uses up sooooo much space on your computer so beware!!!

Its definitely worth it but the screen-shots and trailers make it look like you can do absolutely everything (and although it seems like you can such as getting a job, you don't actually see anything apart from the bar at the top of your screen telling you what your Sim is doing)
