Wow, this is not good…4/10 from Metro, and it’s EA’s launchtitle for the 3DS. Hope not all of the reviews will be like this!
In Short: As a quick and dirty port this is no disgrace but it doesn’t make any meaningful use of the 3DS’s functions or the concept’s potential.
Pros: Most of the same gameplay options as the original and the new karma and challenge systems are sensible additions. StreetPass is perfect for The Sims.
Cons: Shoddy graphics and treacly frame rate. Overcomplicated controls and interface. A port of a port of a complex PC game makes no sense on the 3DS.
