Alle Achtung EA! Die Sims 3 ist ein richtig gutes Spiel geworden und führt die Serie souverän in die nächste Generation. Auch wenn da noch Luft nach oben ist, so habt ihr es nahezu perfekt verstanden, dem Spieler den nötigen Freiraum für Experimente und Individualität zu geben. Das ist leider auch heute noch keine Selbstverständlichkeit. Wer sich für das Spielkonzept überhaupt noch erwärmen kann, wird in Sunset Valley gerne in eine andere Haut schlüpfen.
Consider me a reluctant fan, but this is one game that is worth the hype and worth the wait.
Si vous êtes prêts à repartir sur de nouvelles bases et à mettre toute votre collection d’extensions de côté, Les Sims 3 propose un environnement ouvert très convaincant, supprime les temps de chargement et remet les pendules à l’heure. Une base très solide et convaincante auquel il manque toutefois clairement de nombreuses possibilités qui existaient dans les Sims 2. Si vous êtes fans de la série la question de l’achat ne se pose évidemment pas mais sachez que le prix à payer pour les nouveautés du jeu de base va se payer en terme de contenu.
Because you can otherwise play however you want, though, the in-game chores annoyed us. The characters are somewhat autonomous, and they’ll sometimes choose to pick up after themselves. But watch a Sim sit reading quietly for real-world minutes, and you’ll wonder: Do you play The Sims or do the Sims play you?
