The Sims 3 is the newest addition to the Sims franchise, and was long-awaited by many.
The Sims 3 encompasses a lot of the technology used to create The Sims 2, but with gameplay changes that make the game far more interesting and easy to navigate.
The largest change in the game is its 'neighbourhood play' feature, which enables you to play the game within the entire neighbourhood without hitting a single loading screen. This is incredibly useful, as many frustrated players spent what seemed like years staring at loading screens every time they wished to exit the house.
Smaller changes such as more customisable features on Sims themselves, more furniture, more hobbies, more NPCs, and things to collect and do heighten the gaming experience further.
Although the huge game file may not work on many computers, for those that do it runs well and smoothly. However, too much custom content could clog up your memory quickly, so it is advisable to keep an eye on your save games.
All in all, a decent game and a definite improvement to the series.
