ZeroTolerance Writes: It's hard to believe that The Sims has been around for over a decade. The PC life simulation series has seen countless spin-offs and expansion packs, and of course the prototypical console ports. However, up until now these console knock-offs have been nothing short of disappointing. Transitioning the mouse click style gameplay to a controller is no easy task. In the past the developers tried taking a different approach to the gameplay instead of simply trying to tweak and fix what was already there. The Sims 3 is a nice hybrid of both ideas that keeps the series' core concepts intact while giving it an identity of its own at the same time.
