Despite its size problems and general clutter, there’s a lot to admire once you’ve spent some time building up your Sims life and sharing in their experiences.
The 3DS really doesn’t bring anything new to it, apart from the extra processing power to make it look a lot sharper and when it’s on a screen that small, you could argue the effect is wasted anyway.
The ability to capture your face is welcome and a there are times where this almost manages the magic of its larger cousins, but ultimately, it feels small. And quite why the loading times are so long is beyond us.
