I wouldn't say the Sims 3 Deluxe is SOOO amazingly better than the Sims 3. But it is an improvement, if you like more variety in your career choices and if you like controlling Sims at work (only available in professions, not jobs). Other than that, not a big difference between the two games. But just a review of the overall game, well, it's great. Infinitely better than the Sims 2! However, it's so good, it doesn't play *very* well on my laptop. It's choppy sometimes, and the graphics aren't great in ordinary gameplay. In Create-A-Sim, it's fantastic. But in gameplay, try not to get too close to their faces. It's a little weird. But if you have a good graphics card I'm sure it'll play fine. Anyway, things I love about the game are the new sliders that came with the recent update (WOW! THANK YOU!), the fact that you pretty much never hit a loading screen except when changing from gameplay to menu or create-a-sim or whatever, and the fact that you can switch families in the same neighborhood and your old sims just go on with their lives. I also like the water ripple effects, but that doesn't mean a lot now does it? Hope you enjoy your Sims!!

The Sims 3 is an amazing game. You can do basically anything with them. If you have ever wanted to have freedom and unlimited fun, then buy the SIms 3. You can become an astronaut, a pilot, a firefighter, and even a mad scientist! As well as being able to have children, maybe even triplets or twins, you can get medical advice or relax at the spa for the day. You can even get an expensive car or the limo of your dreams. If you want to live big, go ahead and buy the mansion, but if you just want to have a cozy place to stay, feel free to buy a small house near the ocean. Your sim will have all new traits and responsibilities like washing the dishes and being a natural cook or slob. An all new feature is having a wedding and being able to choose clothes. There is a wide variety of clothing to choose from. Your sim can also exercise and even change its name. You can overrun other businesses and even accomplish goals or lifetime wishes.
If you liked the previous Sims games, prepare to be surprised when you buy the SIms 3. It's a must have for any Sims lover. I hope to get the expansion packs later on!

My daughter loves this game and plays it non-stop. However, that's only because she got a MacBook Air for Christmas. Prior to that she was using a 13" MacBook that has an Intel integrated GMA 950 video card. This card is not supported, but nowhere is this shared - not in Amazon's description and not on the back of the software case. I finally found this little nugget of information after combing through the manual and researching it online. The game installed & loaded perfectly and appeared to run fine - no graphics issues with any of the scenery and backgrounds. However, once you tried to build a Sim, all that could be seen was their hair, eyes and shoes. Everything else was a black shadow.

I eventually returned the DVD and downloaded the software from Direct2Drive directly onto her MacBook Air and it works flawlessly. Since this review is supposed to be for the game, it gets 5 stars, but I wanted everyone to be aware that their video card may or may not work. It's best to research that before purchasing.

First off, I have to say that this is the first sims game I have ever played, so I can't compare it to previous sims titles. I also won't be going in depth into the features of this game because I figure there are plenty of other places to look for those. I can, however give an idea of what it's like playing the sims after having played more mainstream games.

My biggest worry about this game was that I would grow bored without a set progression. While it is definitely a play-style radically different from anything I've ever played before, it is none-the-less very entertaining. The goal is simply to make you sims (in game characters) successful in some way. This can mean making an army of friends or becoming an astronaut. Each sim gets one of these goals (called lifetime wishes in game) and has their lifespan to complete it. There are a lot of lifetime wishes to choose from and each offers different gameplay. This means there is great variety in how each sim gets played, and as a result, that the game itself is very re-playable.

That said, the open-ended, non-linear play-style won't appeal to everyone. It means the player has to take the initiative in everything. You could, if you wanted to, do nothing at all.

The other thing I was unsure about when getting this game was that sims have to complete a lot of very mundane task throughout the day. They must go to the bathroom, shower, cook, have fun, and receive some sort of social stimulation. As the player, you have to order them to do all of these things, and the monotony does get old after a while. You can set them to be somewhat autonomous (which means they will do something by themselves if left idle), but they are pretty stupid so you have to pay attention anyway.

I've been an avid Sims player ever since the original Sims and I've got to say this game is fantastic. The Sims 3 has come a LONG way since the first Sims and it's even made huge improvements since Sims 2. The characters are much more realistic, there are a ton more clothes to choose from, building houses is a dream, and there's so many new features in furnishing your home that it's almost overwhelming. If you've always wanted more control and options to choose from for limitless levels of customization, this is your game.

So far I have not run into any bugs and I'm on a Macbook Pro purchased Thanksgiving 2010. The only issues I had were when I was first installing it and it froze up so that I had to shut down my computer but after that, everything has been running flawlessly. Load time for the actual game is pleasantly quick but it does take a bit longer when loading your actual game. Still, it's nothing compared to how long it used to take. The graphics are great and all the controls are pretty simple to figure out. This game incorporates a lot of the original Sims features which is really nice but includes a lot of newer stuff, such as being able to turn furniture and counters diagonally.

As for the actual Sims, I've read a ton of reviews that think these Sims are a lot uglier than the ones in Sims 2. They're really not as bad as some people are making them out to be. They resemble Sims 2 a lot but are much, much more realistic. Their faces are a bit thick, making them seem a little chubby in the cheeks, but I don't think it's as big of a deal as some are making it. They still look like Sims but with a ton more detail and a lot more human-like. You can customize their body size and shape, and even add your desired amount of muscle tone. Create-A-Sim is amazing.
