In earlier Sims games, players interact with a household of virtual computer people. In The Sims 3, players interact with an entire
neighborhood. Instead of playing each family discretely on its individual lot, players can now take their characters anywhere in
town -- to a friend's house, out to a restaurant, to a favorite park, or even to work. No matter which Sim the player is currently
following, however, all the characters in the neighborhood are active whenever the game is being played. Events that take place
on the other side of town can have an effect on situations all across the neighborhood, just as the player's characters may
influence the rest of the community with their actions (or inaction). Sims are now quick to pull out their mobile phones and keep
one another informed, even if only about the latest gossip.
The Create-A-Sim system in the Sims 3 refines the powerful tools featured in the Sims 2. Players have much more finely graduated
control over many physical aspects of the characters they create. For example, a slider allows a choice of any size and shape
between rail-thin and very overweight, instead of offering only three set body types, and a second slider controls the character's
muscularity. To a greater degree than the previous game's character editor, the new tools give players the power to create
recognizable Sim versions of people they know (or would like to know). Sims personalities are now determined by up to five
distinguishing traits, such as "hot headed," "conversationalist," "clumsy," "great cook," "slob," "good sense of humor," and even
"neurotic" or "paranoid." Players can choose from more than 60 available traits when they create each new Sim.
From the Manufacturer: The Sims return yet again in this third full evolution of the long-running and always-expanding sim series.
The Sims 3 allows you to immerse your unique Sims in an open living neighborhood right outside their door, interacting with
other Sims using the new, deeper personality system. The game also allows you to customize anything, anywhere. From floors to
flowers, fashions to sofas, wallpaper to window shades and more, The Sims 3 gives you all the flexibility and options you need to
be the architect of your dream house or explore your interior design skills to outfit your ultimate home. Your Sims can make
home an ultra-deluxe mansion, a cool bachelor pad, family's dream home or charming cottage. The choice is yours.
