The Sims 3 is largely a huge disappointment for me, as I was hoping for something a little bit more polished and finished than what we received instead. It’s not so much that I’m complaining about there being nothing to do, I’m more so complaining about the fact that the game just feels so incredibly unbalanced – in particular that the game itself feels like a chore at times. And with a game that is meant to simulate a possibly better life than yours, that’s really saying something. It’s very hard to recommend this to anyone at all, as it’s definitely one of the most disappointing launch titles for the 3DS thus far. Still, if you’ve never played The Sims before, I suppose this would be a good place to start – but remember there are much better things available elsewhere.
