I have been a fan of the Sims since Sims 1 all of those moons ago. This addition to the series however is the best one. So far. EA pump out more Sims titles than I have hot dinners, so I say ‘so far’ because you just know they’ll soon release another one *cough cough* Sims Medieval *cough cough*.
I say it’s the best one, but what I mean by that is, it is the best one in terms of gameplay. It is definitely not the best one when it comes to objects and building materials. The game feels empty. It’s as though they released it in this empty state on purpose so that they could put what was missing inside millions and zillions of expansion packs. To me, that makes EA a bunch of money robbing scoundrels. But it also tells me that I myself am stupid enough to go and buy them. I must confess to only having one expansion pack for this game so far, but I will review those separately. For now, let’s just concentrate on The Sims 3, on its own, in its entire naked form. (more…)
