"The Sims has undoubtedly become one of the most popular franchises to date. With at least five expansion packs for each PC title as well as plenty of console and handheld versions, The Sims is an incredible moneymaker for EA Games. So it's no surprise that a third The Sims title has been developed. For The Sims veteran, however, is this game worth a purchase? EA boasts many new additions and improvements to the third installment of the series, but it's a question of whether or not EA can still deliver a substantial package that isn't a mere rehash of The Sims 2."
