The Sims 3


Ultimately, The Sims is a game you can lose yourself in, as you get caught up in the antics of the little digital people you've created. You share their hopes, their fears, their ups and downs. Or, at least, you can do that on the PC. On the 3DS, you...

The Sims 3


3D Sim needs food badly. 3D Sim is about to die.

Contains most of the functionality of the full Sims experience

Only one mode ; Overly difficult to comprehend how to succeed (Too much information, too little display)

The Sims 3 plays primarily like the previous two installments on the PC. The only noticeable difference is the terrible "real-time" world, where everything happens in your neighborhood regardless of whether or not you're playing the other families....

The Sims 3: World Adventures


Don't your Sims deserve a break from the old routine?

Treasure-hunting can be lucrative, but it rarely pays for the price of your trip. Even if your Sims are fantastically rich, they require a few days at home between vacations, ensuring that the game's original content remains relevant. The new material...

The Sims 3


The latest iteration of the popular life-simulation game just gets better.

Even more addictive than the last two.

Sims 3, The


By now you should know what The Sims is. It is a life simulator that has your character, a Sim, interacting with other Sims, speaking stupid gibberish. The games concept is easy to learn, which is why it is the best selling PC franchise in history,...

I would have thought that the Nintendo 3DS version of The Sims 3 would have been much better. Instead it seems like we got a real crappy version of the console game. The Sims 3 is usually a fun game to play but on the 3DS I just wanted to put it down...

The Sims 3 on your mobile


You might be surprised to hear it, but the latest Sims port for your phone is a faithful, full-featured game for your iPhone or Java-capable mobile.

Simulation in frustration

The franchise's move to handheld platforms proved a great transition

The Sims 3


I wasn't expecting much from the 3DS version of The Sims 3. I kept saying the words “dumbed down”,”ugly”, “glitchy” and “barely playable” so if in case it sucked, my heart wouldn't be shattered into million pieces. If you've read my Xbox 360 review,...

Quite faithful PC/Console port ; Lots to offer

but leads to a convoluted, unenjoyable experience ; Subpar graphics. Horrible in 3D ; Random glitches, freezing ; Facial recognition option blows

Electronic Arts was able to successfully pull together a faithful console/PC port for the much smaller 3DS platform, but I think that they pushed their luck a bit too far. Could they have waited a few more months and actually deliver a much more...

The Sims 3: World Adventures review


The new Sims 3 expansion pack is out now and on shelves for you to nab. Is there anything novel here, or is it just a chance for EA to cash in? Read our The Sims 3: World Adventures review and we'll tell all.

Becoming a cursed mummy, new puzzle-solving gameplay

Lengthy load and travel times

Not just a retread but a new Sims direction

The Sims 3 for iPhone review


Take control over your Sims, in the first iteration of the classic series for your iPod touch or iPhone.

Mini games, Sim creation options

Little to do, ambiguous menus, random character interaction, disjointed navigation

Until EA Mobile can deliver an intuitive interface and a fun playing experience to complement its high-end graphics and AI, the games will play like cheap knock-offs of the computer games they’re based on.
