The laid back nature of The Sims 3 transfers to consoles almost effortlessly in this new age of HD gaming, and if it wasn’t for some serious issues on the older generation Xboxs, it’d be scoring much higher. If you have an Xbox 360 S however, the road is open for good times, as it boasts a great control scheme and will give you hours of hours of addictive fun. What more can you ask for?
The Sims 3 still feels like the sharpest casual-oriented time sink on the market. Hours slip away as you micro-manage every facet of your virtual counterpart’s life. It’s an absurdly addictive experience that maintains this draw on consoles. As a whole, the game’s fairly solid. Simulation games on consoles are few and far between, and when released, they’re never able to provide the hook that The Sims franchise is known for. Even then, if you’ve already invested in the PC version, there’s really no reason to bother with this mostly competent (albeit still inferior) port.
