The Sims 3 is the latest version of the popular virtual life strategy game from EA.

How to play The Sims

Like in previous titles, The Sims 3 has no fixed end: your aim consists of creating a human-like creature – a Sim. You must manage their entire existence, looking after all aspects of their lives, from controlling their bladder to achieving the highest position in their professional career.

There are plenty of changes and new features in The Sims 3, compared to The Sims 2. You can now get out of your home and visit not only public spaces and community buildings, but also other Sims' houses – and enter them!

This freedom of movement in The Sims 3 makes it easier for you to find a job and make new friends in the neighborhood. There are also more options for socializing, and for the first time, you get feedback in real time about what the other Sim is thinking about you.

Customize your Sims

The Sim editor in The Sims 3 is very powerful, and enables you to customize your Sims to the smallest detail – like defining the length of their eyelashes. There are also more customization options for clothes and furniture, to which you can add your personal touch with colors and patterns. As for the Sim's personality, it's based on a choice of traits that will definitely affect the way your Sim behaves, reacts and lives.

The Building and Buying modes in The Sims 3 are well organized and include some improvements that make decoration easier and more enjoyable. The game now supports more rotating angles and diagonal placement, so that you can make the most of your house. On the downside, items tend to be more expensive and easily breakable, which means you'll have to save up a lot of 'simoleons' to either get them repaired or upgrade them.

Capture treasured moments

As with previous editions, The Sims 3 also has a built-in screenshot and video tool, which will allow you to capture and record sweet memories of the lives of your Sims. And when they pass away, don't forget to pay a visit to the town's graveyard – you may still see them as ghosts!
