Excerpt: Sims 3 has got to be the best Sims game and is definitely worth buying. The graphics are 100x better than Sims and Sims 2. The freedom of having an actual open world means that there is so much to explore and do. Unlike the previous Sims games you can go wherever you want whenever you want. The expansion packs also make the game even better as it gives you the opportunity access new careers, traits and skills.
Boring, glitchy, and the installation programme is terrible!

Summary: I really dislike this game. It's so glitchy all the time! Even if it isn't glitching, I find the whole thing to be rather boring and frustrating. You're basically just doing all the chores that you're procrastinating, nut on a computer! But my main problem is the stupid installing programme they run. You can only install with a code from the manual with the box, which is all well and good....If you have the damn manual!
Excerpt: I've had this game for awhile now and I can say that I have literally spent hours in front of a computer screen playing this game. Graphics: The graphics are fantastic, the quality is more crisp and sleek than its predecessor. However there are minor glitches in the game, and some of them are facebook worthy, like watching your sims woohooing under the sheets!
Pros: "graphics ", "better furniture ", "make interesting relationships", "a lot of fun "
Summary: As a die hard Sims fan (with huge gaps in between sessions though) I decided to skip number 2 & go straight to number 3. Honestly, at first, it was all a bit too different to what I was used to & I wasn't really enjoying it. After 2 days I suddenly became a decrepit old woman & discovered you have to adjust the settings regarding how long your Sim spends at a certain life stage, so deleted that game & started again.
Excerpt: Out of all the expansion packs i've seen Sims 3 supernatural is by far my favourite as it plays on the fantasies of well known mythical creatures. The graphics live up to there name both crisp and clean for there era despite there being some lag here and there but other then that its a pretty smooth game to play.
Summary: This might be the best computer game, however the sheer palava of getting this installed and then licensed really hasn't been worth while. Firstly, it wouldn't installed from the supplied disk - by hook or by crook I somehow managed to download and install something - end-to-end this took a couple of weeks. I wonder why a disk was even shipped out given it required a download - they might as well have just emailed me the license key and saved on the shipping.
Excerpt: * Requires the Sims 3 base game to play* This was the first stuff pack released for the Sims 3, it was releases in February 2010 so it's just over 4 years old at the time of writing this review, although it had some good items this stuff pack was a serious let down and was somewhat lacking.
Pros: "Some new stuff"
Cons: "What is there isn't great", "No ware near enough"
