Some real good features, but doesn't score on "addictiveness" factor
1 October 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Its sad that after waiting for so much time, registering at Sims, eagerly longing for a copy of the game, frequently visiting the malls, spending about Rs.399( I got a concession of about Rs.600 due to my previous purchases) for the game with the actual retail price of Rs.999, installing it as soon as I entered my home and playing with it for a couple of hours, I got a bit bored with it.

Sims 2 changed the PC game play to a whole new level. It was so addictive that one was glued to his or her seat. Unfortunately, the mighty sequel doesn't do that and somewhat falls flat. I have to admit that some of the changes in the sequel are welcoming but the whole game itself does not manage to carry the weight of the previous titles and turns out to be a somewhat disappointing.

The best thing about Sims 3 is the character customization which has innumerable options. To assign various traits to Sims is fun and so is the clothing option. But why did they not have the height customization? It would be so much fun to marry a dwarf man to a huge lady.

The whole idea of seamless neighborhood is overwhelming. For the first time, I loved to keep my Sims away from their homes. The graphics have improved and the Sims look more realistic. The wishes is a good addition to the Sims game. The ghost Sims and the prospect of having Ghost babies too is fine.

But why is the game not addictive? Firstly, there are only about 12 lifetime wishes. Therefore, many of my Sims have the same lifetime wish which is bugging. Then, the speed doesn't seem to increase a lot when I click on 'forward'. I have to see my Sims sleep for a minute or so which is okay but sometimes irksome.

The whole new interaction system does get a bit jaded after a while. Doing the same actions over and over again to make your Sims love each other or make babies is boring. And its is not possible to see what the Sims do at work or even at restaurants. Why were the creators so lazy in this aspect?

Overall, a not so addictive game for me. I would have rated it 8 before but since I am not playing it now and am in no mood to play it, I give it a 6.
