Electronic Art’s The Sims is probably one of the best game simulation series ever made. The idea of being able to have full control of one’s life or a whole town is truly exceptional and is really entertaining for most people. After the Sims 2 showed much improvement from the Sims and throughout its running years (additional expansion packs to improve gaming experience), and it’s success. There were still a lot to improve such as the ability to actually go around the neighborhood without waiting for long loading time, and many more problems, which kind of limits the gaming experience. The Sims 3 was able to improve many things the Sims 2 base game lacked, such as the ability to go around the neighborhood without loading. In the Sims 3 there is also more realistic looks of the Sims. There are sliders of many parts of the facial features to actually create a human like Sim. There is also customization of colors of hair, eyes, and skin tones. The body shape of the Sim has a sliding choice not a three way choice. There was also a great improvement in clothing; a gamer can now customize the color and patterns of the provided clothes. There is a new option to pick their own shoes, instead of coming with the outfit. The Sims themselves also act more realistic. There is more of a three-dimensional view of things. There is a set of traits the at the gamer could choose from, so the sim would be more human like. In the Sims 3, the age stage of Young Adult is available in the base game and all expansion ...
packs, unlike the Sims 2 it was only available in the Sims 2 University.
Ther were also some downsides in the Sims 3 base game. One would be there is only one available neighborhood at the start; one would either buy or download another neighborhood. It gets boring after awhile playing in just one neighborhood. Another would be, not all aspects of the Sims 2 were kept in the Sims 3; those aspects were later developed in Expansion packs, which is probably their way to gain more money. The Sims 3’s fast forward option isn’t that fast in normal graphic cards that most computers have, it is incredibly slow compared to the Sims 2. There is an additional waiting rather than playing while the Sims sleeps.
Overall, the Sims 3 improved a lot but is yet to be improved. EA did give some add ons every time I updated the game but I am still waiting for many more, such as a height slider. EA is probably making me wait and making me buy their really attractive expansion packs to make more money out of me.
