I am truly impressed that EA Mobile did not treat Sims 3 for the iPhone as an inferior product to the flagship game, which is something you often see in DS or mobile editions of existing franchises. This was not shoved out to make a quick buck in the shadow of the PC game. The amount of content and detail betrays a real dedication to making a complete Sims experience for a new screen. Despite occasional bugaboos and odd interface decisions, Sims 3 is a quality game that comes seriously recommended.

Visuell ansprechend, mit wenigen Ausnahmen gut kontrollierbar und in einigen Punkten dank Minispielen deutlich aktiver als am PC, hat man sich bei EA erfolgreich bemüht, die Möglichkeiten des iPhone/iPod Touch auszunutzen. Doch eine Stärke der Serie, gleich auf welchem System, greift hier nur sporadisch: Die Autonomie der Figuren. Zu häufig passiert gar nichts, obwohl die Figur eigentlich wesentliche Bedürfnisse auch ohne Spielerzutun erledigen könnte. Daher hält sich der Reiz an der puren Beobachtung ohne einzugreifen in sehr überschaubaren Grenzen. Doch sowohl diesem als auch anderen kleinen Fehlern zum Trotz kehrt man immer wieder gerne zu diesem umfangreichen Mini-Sims zurück - mal nur für fünf Minuten, mal für ein Stündchen, mal, bis der Akku von den gut animierten Figuren leer gefressen wurde.

There is a certain undeniable professional polish to the iPhone version of The Sims 3. Its gameplay is charming and it captures the magic of The Sims without being too overburdened. That’s why it’s no surprise it was the top selling iTunes App Store title in its first week out. But as you play the game further, you come up against its limitations, which hopefully will be addressed with upgrades and expansions that The Sims franchise is known for.

The game's detailed graphics, which accompany The Sims 3's deep character customization, are some of the best yet on the system. What keeps it from being a must-have game for everyone is the scatterbrained goal system, which is too random and unmanageable to make progress clear for your sim. If you're willing to use your imagination to create complicated social scenarios, The Sims 3 can be a lengthy and interesting investment. At its best, it's daring fun.

Malgré des graphismes de qualité et une multitude de souhaits à exaucer, ce portage sur iPhone déçoit par son manque de contenu et l’impossibilité de construire sa propre maison. A réserver aux fans de la série qui y trouveront leur compte.
