But if you can look past the graphics, The Sims 3 offers a fairly decent port of the game. It may not be enough for longtime fans, but it does do a fairly good job with the controls of the 3DS. You can do most of the things that the PC will allow, at least enough that there are plenty of things to keep you occupied. There are obvious limitations compared to the much more robust versions already out, but there are enough things to entertain you, if you are a fan–or maybe entertain is the wrong word. This game can definitely offer a lengthy and time consuming distraction if nothing else.
