Editorial Review

The Sims 3 for DS is a life simulation game that brings authentic gameplay elements, long enjoyed in PC versions of the game, to the small screen of the Nintendo DS. Packed with depth rarely, if ever seen in a simulation game developed for a handheld, and utilizing the functionality of the DS' stylus and touchscreen, The Sims 3 allows players to actually craft the lives of their Sims, rather than simply follow predetermined paths. This combined with additional features such as a extreme customization and a new Karma game element that can impact the lives of Sims for good or ill, results in a gameplay experience equally suited to both new and longtime fans of the series.
