At first I didn't like the game at all, but then I made a family like my own and it was soo realistic. You can choose out of many details to make your sims just like you or the person you would like to be. You can see the many advances they have made in this game since the first sims games. The best new feature in the sims 3 is being able to travel to different ares without having to wait for the computer to take forever to load. You just hop in a cab or get on the sidewalk and you are at your destination in less than 1 minute. You dont have to buy clothes anymore either, you just go to your dresser and change into whatever you like. And another addition to this game becoming more realiistic is the toodlers gain more realistic traits and you actually have to go grocery shopping instead of just getting on your phone or computer. I defnitely recommend this game. The computer version has the most detail in my opinion.
