Come on Prima, what gives?  Your books have been pretty good.  The Sims and the beginning of The Sims 2 series had fat, thick Prima Guides.  Then during the end of The Sims 2 lifespan, they switched to the normal tall and skinny style.  Spore Galactic Adventures showed off a new style of a pocket-sized guide…and you quickly changed back to the tall and skinny guides once again for The Sims 3 and World Adventures.  Now you want to throw a new style out there with metal binders?  This doesn’t look pleasing at all!

In The Sims 3 Ambitions, players can choose to hunt down vengeful spirits as the ghost hunter, invent brilliant and potentially destructive gadgets as an inventor, craft glorious masterpieces as a sculptor, and solve riveting cases by any means necessary as an investigator with dozens of cases to solve and numerous clues to find. Additionally, players will be able to change the look and feel of their town by becoming an architect and directly affecting the neighborhood around them leveraging Build and Buy mode.
