The Sims 3 For The PC/MAC

The third version of the series Sims. The Sims 3 was released in 2009 by EA (Electronic Arts). Just like The Sims 3 for the Wii, Which I rated on my blog Nintendo Rater at, The Sims 3 for the computer is a life simulation game where you take care of people called sims (Get it? Sims = Simulation). This game is a member of the family of The Sims series (The Sims and The Sims 2 are the first two versions of the family). Just like each version of The Sims family, The Sims 3 has expansion packs that add new things to the gameplay. Each expansion pack is sold separately and needs the main game installed first. Since The Sims 3 is the latest version, expansion packs are still being made for the game.

FUN: Just like The Sims 3 for the Wii, you will need to take care of your sims' needs and wishes. However, the PC and Mac versions of the game gives you a set number of cheats like freezing you sims' needs. Along with caring of you sims, you can build their homes and buy them new stuff (Both if you have the money for it. Don't worry... there's a cheat for that). You have the choice to let the sims do things by themselves or to tell them what to do. You will only like this game if you like simulation games. I rate FUN - 1.8.

REPLAY: This game can go on forever if you turn off aging or if you sims' family grows a new generation (You know... the adults have kids and then, the kids have their own kids. Aw... the magic of generation after generation). You can keep creating new families, aka save files, after all your sims died or while they're still alive. Besides that... no replay value. I rate REPLAY - 0.5.

STORY: I will keep this quick and short. Newborns, toddlers, children, teens, young adults, adults, elders, and death. When young lives bring the new while they become old and history. I rate STORY - 0.5.

DIFFERENCE/ORIGINAL: Instead of wants and fears from The Sims 2, this version introduced wishes and lifetime goals. EA upgraded the type of sims we play with. Now, the sims are fully automated to do the dull stuff (Like eating, sleeping, washing, and doing their business) if you want. On top of those two items, The Sims 3 allows your sims to travel anywhere in town without any pesky loading periods. Your sims are free to roam for the first time! I rate DIFFERENCE/ORIGINAL - 2.

DIFFICULTY: I just have one thing to say... the more sims you have, the harder it is to keep them alive. However, only if you don't use cheats. I rate DIFFICULTY - 1.8.

TOTAL - 6.6.

Here you go! However, this is for the computer versions (PC/Mac). If you want to read how I rated The Sims 3 For The Wii, then go to my other video game rating blog called Nintendo Rater. The website address is at the top of this post. I repeat, I will not copy the version for the Wii into this blog. You will need to visit my other blog to read it. Thanks and visit soon!
