Gamertell has posted a fairly positive review of t EA's latest sim experience, The Sims 3.
From the review:
"As long as you're willing to take your time and adjust to the game, you'll come to appreciate it for what it is, rather than what it isn't. Rather than being an upgrade and replacement for The Sims 2, The Sims 3 is more of a compliment. If you're fine with focusing on the adventures of single sims or designing new lots, then you'll absolutely adore The Sims 3. You can do so much with the characters you're working with. Plus, the fact that you can pretty much customize the colors and patterns of everything makes home creation and designing much easier."
