Die Hard Sims Fan? PC - Console User? Only have a console?
Downs: Cannot import PC creations, only console to console creations (XBOX to PS3, visa versa), limited graphic capabilities, limited interface options, loading times, limited creation opportunities, frame rate shutters on the regular. Limited everything, hey it is a console game, what is new...
Ups: A decent representation of The Sims in a new way. I had never played The Sims on a console before, and I gave it a shot. It is worthwhile mainly because you can take The Sims with you, play on a bigger tv, etc. etc. There was opportunity to make it better, but hey you get PS3 trophies and it is something different if you have never played a console version!
Overall: If you enjoy The Sims in any form or regularity, it is worthwhile (Anything Below $35). I do recommend finding it new or if it is used, make sure that the registration for the online portion of the game, The Exchange (download custom creations, share, etc.) has not been used. Otherwise you will pay $10 to get it activated through PSN.
Hopefully this has helped in your decision, I am pretty good at diagnosing games just by the box, and I was right on the money. These impressions are just from playing it for under an hour.Read full review
