Well, they actually look at all of the launch titles for the new handheld from Nintendo, and The Sims 3 is on the list.
Visually, The Sims 3 on the 3DS is disappointing. Your little Sim people haven’t lacked this much detail since, well, maybe the Nintendo DS version of The Sims 3. The 3DS is supposed to be more powerful hardware, right? So what happened? And why does the game sometimes slow down to a crawl when I send my Sim to the toilet?
That gripe aside, the game plays like The Sims you’d expect, and it works reasonably well in conjunction with the handheld’s touch screen. It also makes pretty cool use of StreetPass, where you’ll be able to swap Sims with strangers, even when your game’s not on.
