Synopsis


Throw open the door to new realms of Sims-style fun with The Sims 3 for the Nintendo Wii. In this exciting and feature-packed new edition of The Sims, your Sims are no longer confined to their home environments. An entire neighborhood awaits just outside the door, teeming with neighbors, friends and all-new opportunities for fun, adventure and mischief. Set your Sims free to explore an exciting, living neighborhood filled with possibility, and help their lives unfold in all-new ways.

Enjoy a complete life simulation experience where you rule a brand-new Sims world. Packed with enhancements to heighten the fun and adventure of guiding your characters through their simulated lives, The Sims 3 lets you create Sims with unique personalities, fulfill their dreams and control their lives within their interactive neighborhood. Craft an all-new beach town with new residents, traits, careers, weather and lifetime wishes exclusive for the Wii. Customize and fine-tune your Sims' appearances and choose from millions of different personalities — make them evil, romantic, paranoid, kleptomaniacs or a blend of something completely different. Unlock all-new Karma powers to bless your Sims with wealth, beauty and love — or curse them and take everything away. Gather up to three friends to bet on life's most important moments as you strive to earn points and rewards. Will you let your Sims' destinies be fulfilled, or let their dreams die? How will your Sims live their lives — will they become rock stars, world leaders or expert thieves? With the power to control their world, how will you choose to guide your Sims through life?

    BIG problems

    I just got sims3 for the wii for this Christmas. I was so excited because i love sims and up until now i have loved sims. My game was going great in the beginning but then i noticed that the cars were fazing into each other, other sims in the town were dying way to often, graphics weren't as good as i expected and the darn FIRE HAZARD. Okay well, earlier today i saved up 37,793 sim dollars and sold my house and land so now i had 48,747 so i bought the beautiful light house, but the problem was i couldn't put a single piece of furniture inside because it was a fire hazard. This makes me so very angry with ea games and sim3 because why on the earth would you put the game out if you knew it had this many problems:( So i brought the game back , but i will still be a sims lover though.

    I got this game on 11.17.2010 and i was all excited 2 play until u stuck it in the wii console and it makes funny sounds like it just doesn't know how to make up its mind with loading, and takes forever to load. the game froze on me several times. So many, no i mean too many glitches in the game. I am not a happy camper with this game. It is very irritating, once it freezes your screen, you have to shut down or reset. Some of the stuff like the furniture won't let you move it and the 2nd character moves really fast. i understand why the release date was delayed. I don't understand why they still released the game with too many glitches. EA has no way 2 contact them about this. I don't recommend it 2 anyone.

    This game is a great source of exitment and fun! I love everything about this game and would recommend this to not just 1, but all of my friends! In Sims 3, you can creat as many Sims as you want with unlimited possibilities, build your own home and decorate it as you want! I have seen other reviews that say this game is bad, but from my point of veiw, its really not. But I would highly recomend this game for people over 12 or 13.

    Not What I expected

    I'm a big Sims fan on the PC, from SIms 1 purchased all the game adds on and expansions packs, same with sims 2 and now sims 3. so I thought the sims on Wii would be great. What a disappointment. I thought multiplayer was an option - NOT! although it claims multiplayer, its bascially a question / answer quiz that you can take with another person. When it comes to playing the game, there is no multiplayer. Game play is average but limited. very disappointed. I resold this on half.com as a loss within the week.

    Sims 3 is a good addition to the Sims games. Kids like that you can make your own Sims and design their homes. Game is easy to use but it freezes at times which is our only complaint. Can be a problem mid game. Had to restart the wii to fix the problem each time

    Sims fans will love this game. It is a great standalone game on it's on. However compared to the Sims 2 I think it plays a bit too easy and relies more so on the pretty graphics. Still there's many new features that TS2 didn't have. This title expands on old features in past games as well.
