Horrible, Horrible!By a customer , 06 Jun 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]One of the worse launch titles to be released for the 3DS. It's that bad it came through my post, I playtedn it for an hour and posted it back hoping that I get a better game sent to me. Come on Zelda!
Really like itBy CrazyJazy (1 review) , 06 May 2012I bought this game for my 3DS back when it first came out and I really like it.
The fact that you can view what your character is doing on the top screen in nice 3d whilst navigating and setting tasks on the bottom screen is great. It's really intuitive and gets you hooked in.
Surprisingly goodBy OddGodHMK (8 reviews) , 20 Aug 2011I rented The Sims 3 on 3DS with the impression that it might be an okay title and nothing more. Since the very first series of Sims games, I've found myself enjoying the sequels less and less. The Sims 2 I played only for a couple of days, and The Sims 3 I couldn't bear after just a short time playing on my girlfriend's PS3.
Surprisingly, though, The Sims 3 for 3DS is a remarkably fun little title! Though still including all the major game mechanics from other versions of the title - karma, moodlets, wishes and so forth - the game is stripped down enough that it seems almost to be less of a far removed successor to the original Sims series than a more streamlined, improved version of those early titles, with the obvious graphical enhancements and 3D tech. Where before I couldn't bear to play the games for more than an hour, with this one I've invested 5 or 6 hours so far of time in cultivating my sim, improving her house, now and again using the odd wish or karma power, and progressing through jobs with the handy job performance meter.
In addition to the fun gameplay, the interface is well streamlined and not at all confusing, and a short tutorial offers a handy guide to using it and getting into the game.
If you like this kind of game but want more depth, then I'd suggest checking out the PC or a console version simply because there'll be a lot more content compared with this in terms of customisation. But if you don't mind, or even prefer, the stripped down feel of a game that you want to play rather than get lost in, I'd definitely go with the 3DS version. For me it's succeeded in finally reinvigorating my interest in the franchise after multiple years of disappointments with the ever-changing sequels to the first, and in my opinion best, series of games.
