The Sims 3 (for PC)


In The Sims 3, the Sims series has finally grown up. No longer are the Sims ($49.99 for PC and Mac; $9.99 iPhone or iPod touch) just digital action figures in a big dollhouse. The new Sims have personalities, goals, and unique body types and...

Interface improvements. Finer controls for placing objects within a house. More character depth now available. Sims now have life goals to work toward, not just dead-end jobs

Items from the previous expansion packs not included in this version. You have to pay for cool downloadable items once your initial free online points run out

With The Sims 3, the series has evolved from a virtual sandbox into a well-thought-out world with three-dimensional characters.

The Sims 3: Late Night


Those who may have thought that Sims 3: Late Night sounded a wee bit risqué might want to look at the recommended age group for the game and temper their expectations, stepping back slightly from any excitement that this could be bordering on the...

The Sims 3


Anyone who was blessed or cursed (delete as appropriate) with a little sister might know that there is a certain innate charm about a doll's house. A little snapshot of life that takes place within the mind of the child who plays there. What transpires...

The Sims 3: Late Night- PC


The Sims players now have a reason to stay out late on the town! The Sims 3 Late Night expansion pack gives players all-access and lets them loose on a vibrant, active downtown scene where they'll rub elbows with celebrities at the hottest parties, hit...

Review of The Sims 3: Ambitions


The Sims 3: Ambitions expansion pack is all about professions. Ambitions gave the ability to actually play your Sim's job when they go to work with the addition of the Architect, Firefighter, Ghost Hunter, Inventor, Private Investigator, Sculptor,...

The Sims 3: World Adventures


For me, a casual gamer who likes to be productive as much as possible in life, The Sims 3 is a nightmare. It is truly an addiction - the more you play, the more you want to play. You start playing after work at 6pm and after dinner (if you can get away...

The Sims 3: High-End Loft Stuff


Get your stuff on.

The Sims 3: High-End Loft Stuff follows the template of the previous Sims "Stuff" releases; that is, it's really nothing more than an items pack-no gameplay changes apply whatsoever. For 20 bucks, you'll score around 50 new furniture items, along with...

The Sims 3: World Adventures Review



Photography skill; seamless integration of new features into standard game; new features; adventure is fun alternative to standard Sims playstyle

Very long load times when traveling to other countries; surprising lack of NPC Sims to interact with in other countries; visa system may feel too restrictive to some players; crashed to desktop twice, even after patching

World Adventures offers a refreshing and fun alternative playstyle in the Sims series. You still have the micromanaging aspect that Sims players know and love, but with the added adventure genre element whenever you feel like taking a few days off work...

The Sims 3


Prepare to mold the Sims community in your own image.

While it may sound like a lot of detail and a ton of content to go through, I was pleasantly surprised by just how easy it was to start making a map. Within ten minutes, I'd already carved out an inlet of water on a new stage, complete with sailboats,...
