This met my high expectations. I give the Sims 3 5/5 stars because of the endless possibilities. You can make your people a toddler, child, teenager, young adult, adult, or even a grandparent (you can only get "babies" by "having them") Your people's hair can have so many colors (root, base, highlight, tip)! In the Sims 2, you had to go to the store and purchase clothing but in the Sims 3, you just go to your dresser and "Plan Outfit". Easy. You can put furniture on an angle, like it might be in your home, and there are so many styles to choose from. Make your "DREAM HOUSE" as big as you'd like! Get a lifetime wish (for young adults and adults) such as Superstar Athlete or Surrounded by Family (which means having 5 babies and raising them to teenagers. You can even make your Sim's traits and voice. Some traits are: Kleptomaniac, Loner, Friendly, Flirty, Great Kisser, Never Nude, Good, Evil, etc. Choose what their favorite food is: Pancakes, Sushi, Cheesesteak, etc. This game is a great deal! I recommend it to anyone and everyone, so buy it!!

I was so excited when I got it and when I started to play it, it ran slow, the graphics are somewhat iffy, and if you like dealing with one family at once then this is not the game for you. This game is all about dealing with the whole town at once. I thought it would be cool, but I didn't like it and ended up giving it to my brother.

      Comments about Electronic Arts 1001573 Sims 3 for PC:

      Instructions are non-existant. Not user friendly
      It's necessary to have the distribution disk in the optical drive in order to run, but still uses mucho space on the hard drive, Requires additional $$ to make a decent system.
