Ich verneige mich vor einem Studio, das die Navigation enorm umfangreicher Menüs mit einer verblüffenden Eleganz aufs Gamepad überträgt! Leider bedeutet die Inhaltsgleichheit zum PC auch, dass die Konsolensims noch immer gelegentlich tatenlos am Fleck stehen. Ich bin zudem auch auf PS3 und Xbox 360 kein Freund der allzu mechanischen und klickintensiven Konversationen. Aber das sind Kleinigkeiten, für die man im Gegenzug Motivationsschübe erhält, wenn man neuerdings mit dem schicksalhaften Karma Erdbeben auslöst oder mit den Früchten erledigter Aufgaben einkaufen geht. Über PSN oder Xbox Live tauscht man außerdem wie auf PC selbst erstellte Charaktere und Gegenstände mit den Simologen der realen Welt. Ihr wollt eure Beziehung zu den Sims auffrischen oder wolltet wie ich schon immer mal ihre Bekanntschaft machen? Zurücklehnen und genießen!

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.
