Anyway…we saw a work in progress build that gave us a good idea of what to expect for the latest in this super popular franchise. The key thing that got across was seamlessness – you can move from your own house to your neighbourhood to the centre of town without any separation, which on its own makes Sims 3 worth watching."
The Good: Seamless gameplay; overhauled desire system.
The Bad: Will veteran Sims players need to upgrade their computer?
The Ugly: Those ugly protesters bothering beautiful people
