‘The Sims 3’, is a life simulation game released in 2010. It was also a creation of Maxis and publishment of Electronic Arts. Unlike many other simulation games, this game has got a huge fan base and good reviews from the players. (Which is a common factor in all games in ‘The Sims Franchise‘.) So, from this article, we are going to take a good look at the factors of this game.
As you may know, Sims 3 released 6 years after its predecessor ‘The Sims 2‘ which was a greatly successful game. Like we said in the Sims 2 Review article, and the series article, these games have a huge fan base mainly because they are open to all major gaming platforms. The game is basically available for PC(Microsoft Windows), Console(PS3, Xbox 360, …). Also, EA released a mobile version game too. It is available for mobile OSs such as Android, Blackberry, iOS, and, Windows Phone.
Basic Gameplay in The Sims 3
Sims 3’s gameplay is very much similar to the previous game Sims 2. It has some improved gameplay mechanics with the same style of playing. The game centers around the virtual people called ‘Sims’. The player needs to control and give those Sims better lives. Same as before, the player can control many sims during a single gameplay time (It’s a tedious task and we don’t recommend controlling many Sims at once)
Basically, the player must control the 6 basic needs of a sim. Keeping these 6 factors is the most important task you need to fulfill while you are playing this game.
Create a Sim in The Sims 3
We all know how important character customization in a game. In fact, you have all the freedom to build an entire community in Sims 3. Like previously, Sims 3 allows the player to customize a Sims, age, body, skin color, clothing, and, hairstyles.
There is a change in the personality system. The Sims 3 gives the player to select 5 personality traits for each sim they create. These traits hugely impact the lifestyle of particular Sim.
Build and Create World
Build mode is similarly available in this game too. From build mode, the player is able to buy new items to their homes and create their homes the way they like. (Such as appliances, electronic equipment, and, furniture.)
We can experience a new feature called ‘Create World’ in this game. In this way, the player can create a world as they wish. Create terrains, lots, roads, and much more. It is an interesting way to experience the game actually. Try that type next time you play this game.
The Game generally received better reviews from the ratings. Metacritic has given 86% overall score for this game which is a really high score compared to many other simulation games. So if you love playing simulation games, you must try this one too.
