I want to be clear, this is a review of EA Games business practices as it refers to The Sims 3, not my buying experience. My Buying experience was 100% perfect.
Just a note to all who want to save a few dollars, if you wish to register your SIMS 3 game and get the benefit of the website and the online store and all, EA Games has decided that they will not allow used copies of The Sims 3 to be registered. They will not allow the previous owner to unregister the game and transfer ownership of the serial number and the best they have to offer is maybe they will work it as a warranty thing and only charge you US $10 to get a new serial. Maybe, if they are feeling giving that day...
I Bought the game for my wife here on eBay and ended up having to track down an "Illegal" crack for the game just so she could play something she legally owned.
Go EA Games: Strangling free market practices since 2008.
.you can have can have only one playable family in the entire game.
.there are only 3 facial hair options yet you can customize the color of each layer of lips stick.
.It takes forever to get someone to be your friend and I mean forever.
.you can only choose from a few starter faces in create a sim.
.You can't create your own house or custom lot.
.Their is only 1 neiborhood in the entire game.
.Their are interactive nieborhoods unlike any sims game before it.
I bought the Sims 3 a couple weeks ago and from the start its giving me alot of problems. This game as ALOT of bugs needing to be fixed. I have the necessary requirements, downloaded a updated version of DirectX and kept up with the games patches/updates ect. For every update I am getting more problems. My PC is fast and every time I take my Sim to a place in town it freezes my PC up bad then I get the blue screen or it just shuts the game down. Almost every time I play I get small annoying problems such as disappearing sims,disappearing furniture, things are blue and small things are off such as sims with no hair ect. This game sounded fun and is fun when it works right but unless you plan on playing your sim strictly in its house I would NOT buy it.
I have the Sims 2, and I thought It would be better, concidering it's the Sims 3, but I played it and felt like it was a step backwards..
Although there were more features, I feel the graphics and what not make it look fake and cheesey.. I don't like it..
Well, I've had a bad deal with some one on the other end of the stick.
Lets just say, that if they would have just used on account. My daughter would be enjoying her game and I'll be happy I've gotten it on eBay and not for other to mess up for the rest to enjoy eBay
I choose not to review this game. I will not say one word about it either positive or negative. I cannot without bias evaluate this game, so I will withhold my judgement.
this game never downloaded when i tried to play or download on my computer it always said error and never downloaded this is a horrible game.
I originally bought this because it was a better deal than any in the store, and I am a fan of the other sims games. Though while the price was good, the product was not. Before you can even play it, it requires you to download other softwares. Also, what I was not told prior to buying it, apparantly it requires a computer to have a certain video graphics card, and if it doesn't you can't use it. Well my computer doesn't have the right video graphics card, and it can't be replaced or upgraded. So I basically wasted my money on something I can't use. I want a refund!!!!!
The product is usefless without the keycode to access the game on the computer. Basically it is a useless disk that I paid for in full.
this product should never have been released.just plain bad graphics.not just bad pixels. we are talkimg streaking black lines throughout.crashing.
