Another not-so-good review on the 3DS version of The Sims 3, a 5.5 rated by GameSpot

The 3D aspect of The Sims 3 doesn’t benefit the game nor does it detract from it. Aside from a few tiny touches, such as the way litter blows around when you use karma points to activate a windstorm, the visual design doesn’t take advantage of this aspect of the 3DS. The game suffers from some slowdown, but overall, it retains the series’ unique visual identity. It’s a shame that other aspects of the series’ identity have been lost in translation. Though pursuing your sim’s dreams and interacting with neighbors provides some entertainment, the predominance of tedious chores and the restriction of choices make this virtual life much less exciting to live.
