IGN UK: The Sims Review

Overall, the Sims 3 is superb evolution for the franchise and an impressive, enjoyable game in its own right. EA has obviously listened to criticism and worked hard to create a title that prioritises goal-based gameplay over micro-management to deliver an experience that's constantly engaging and thoroughly immersive. Occasional AI quirks cause starving Sims to wander off and play guitar, for instance, instead of eating their food but, mostly, it's a polished title that's packed full of the humour and dry wit IGN has come to expect from the series. Will it steal some hardcore gamers off their perch? Perhaps, but they doubt they'll admit to it.
