A Complete Sims Experience with Exclusives

In The Sims 3 players create Sims with unique personalities, fulfill their desires, and control their lives within a living neighborhood set in a new beach town environment. Sim creation is essentially the same functionality as players on the PC platform, and using the Wii Remote they are also able to direct them to exactly where they want them to go in the gameworld. Players also enjoy a new building system that allows for the placement of prefabricated buildings that are easily customized and contain architecture previously unavailable. The game also allows for new residents, careers, weather and lifetime wishes, exclusive to the Wii version of the game.

Innovative Multiplayer

Unlike earlier versions of The Sims, The Sims 3 for Wii contains a significant multiplayer option known as "Life Moments." Supporting up to 4 players and specifically designed for play on Wii, "Life Moments" allows players to compete against each other as together they develop a Sim from childhood through the various times of his/her life. Within this mode each player is assigned a stages of the Sim's life, with the goal being to gain the most happiness and success for the Sim. Along the way, there are many choices to be made, with players being able to place side wagers on which of these their opponents will make. Players can also make deals amongst themselves. The mode also features mini-game puzzles in which players go head-to-head, with the happiness of their particular segment of the Sim on the line.

New Karma Powers

The Sims 3 allows players can unlock all-new Karma Powers and unleash them on your Sims. These can be used to help your Sims get lucky with the power of "rapid romance", bless them with "instant beauty" or at the opposite end of things, curse them with the "instant enemy." Use these powers wisely, because they may have unexpected results. Either way, as you guide your Sims through life The Sims 3 allows you to complete opportunities to unlock items and rewards like never before.

Key Game Features

  • Create Any Sim You Can Imagine - Fine-tune your Sims' appearances and personalities. Make them evil, romantic, paranoid, kleptomaniacs, or a mix of something completely different.
  • Control your Sims' Destinies - Choose whether or not to fulfill your Sims' destinies by making their wishes come true, or letting their dreams die. Will your Sims be emperors of evil, world leaders, or expert thieves? It's up to you.
  • New Building System - The new building system allows for quick drop in prefabricated building shells that can be customized and allow for new architecture.
  • Unlock All-New Karma Powers - Wield the ultimate control over your Sims giving them wealth, beauty, and love, or take it all away with the click of a button.
  • Play The Sims with Friends - Get some friends in on the action with the new "Life Moments" Game with up to four players. Bet on life's most important moments to earn points and garner rewards.
  • New Content - Enjoy an all new beach town with new residents, traits, careers, weather, and lifetime wishes exclusive for the Wii.

1.0 out of 5 stars It Needs To Be Taken Off The Market! November 26, 2010
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been waiting for the sims 3 to come out for Wii for 2 years. I pre-ordered it and when I finally played it, I felt ripped off to an unprecedented degree. Now, the other Sims games for Nintendo platforms were glitchy, they even froze constantly and crashed the system from time to time, but THIS game is totally useless! It doesn't seem to work on my Wii at ALL. Yes, the game will run... SORT OF... but there are endless, unbelievable glitches that make playing it a nightmare, and my Wii constantly makes noises like it is desperately straining itself just trying to run the game! Also, the glitches are impossible to work around!

For example, sometimes when I invite a sim over, the sim I want to interact with is INVISIBLE! Sometimes the house itself doesn't load properly or AT ALL. Worst of all, I can't even place houses on the lots because it says I'm over the "fire code" even though the houses are EMPTY and I cleaned out my moving storage, too! What's the point of this game if I can't even upgrade the stupid houses they force you to use? These are just a handful of examples, because I lost count after 1 day of trying to play it. The glitches and malfunctions and problems with gameplay were evident after only an hour or two of playing. EA released this game in order to make money during this holiday season, but the game was NOT READY. It doesn't even WORK! I idiotically threw out my receipt or I would return it TODAY. EA/Nintendo need to give customers a working game or refund our money, as they did with other glitchy games. How can they get away with selling a product that malfunctions to such an extent that it is utterly useless? What gall! All Sims 3 games for Wii should be recalled and pulled off the shelves until they can make a game that works!

1.0 out of 5 stars Would NOT Recommend November 22, 2010
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Being an ardent Simmer, I pre-ordered this game and was so excited about it. That quickly changed when I started playing it. It is certainly not worth the price! Problems:

1. The game is EXTREMELY glitchy.
2. The graphics look like back in the day Playstation I graphics.
3. The age progession should be able to be turned off, as I didn't get to accomplish what I needed or wanted to.
4. My sim was watching t.v. and couldn't get up from the sofa, and died of hunger.
5. No firemen to put out house fires. My stove caught on fire, and sim did too, and died. Why are fire alarms
needed?
6. People walk through people, cars jam up into each other.
7. There was a logjam of people at the entrance to the restaurant, and they ended up dying.
8. You find yourself "mourning" and don't know why until you figure out that there are various tombstone markers
around town from Sims that have died, that you have to put in your inventory and place them at the cemetery.
9. Once you choose an outfit/hair-- you cannot change them.
10. You cannot build homes.
11. Books- I have no idea how to read certain ones (i.e., cooking) once I've purchased them. Once they are
placed in the bookshelf, you cannot choose a particular book. You end up reading whatever is there.
Therefore, there were certain recipes that I couldn't make, 'cause I couldn't choose the particular book.
12. I purchased trees for my home, and placed them around the house, and the trees end up showing through the
inside of the house.

I am so sorry I purchased this game. Castaways for Wii was 10X better! EA should be ashamed of themselves for putting out such a substandard product! I will never purchase a Sim Wii game again!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Rushed-to-Market, Unfinished, Ultimately Unplayable December 2, 2010
By K. Cole
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
We were really looking forward to this game, but unfortunately EA has chosen to release an unfinished product. This Wii version contains numerous bugs, including several game-breaking bugs. At first the bugs were somewhat tolerable, but after a few hours the game became unplayable. We just encountered a bug where we can't buy anything, even though we have plenty of money. Resetting the software and reloading did not fix the issue - this effectively ended our game. Also the game has crashed on us, which has never happened to us before on our Wii. The game required us to name our baby before telling us if was a boy or girl (happened for every baby). We could also list many bothersome bugs: characters clipping into walls and objects, random inability to grab and move particular objects, magically disappearing objects (newspapers, fishing rods, etc), and framerate lockups.

This is so sad for everyone who was looking forward to this game. Until EA recalls/fixes this game, you should avoid at all costs.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful version of a great PC game November 22, 2010
By Sjbeem
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
This particular platform is just awful. First of all, I am a huge fan, or was anyway, of the Sims PC games. This is a sorry version of it. To begin with, I absolutely hate the fact that you have to use the nunchuck in addition to the wii-mote. It would have been much easier and more convenient, (a lot less frustrating too!), to just use the main remote turned to the side like some other games require. Teaching yourself the commands and buttons is also an exercise in frustration. The instruction booklet that comes with the game seems purposefully designed to make you spend more money to buy the game guide. Why there isn't some sort of beginning tutorial is beyond me. Secondly, you cannot change your clothing or hairstyle. What a disappointment! I took the useless dresser out of my house and bought something else instead. Third and not the least of my complaints is how glitchy the game is. This game was not ready to go live, they should have waited and worked out the kinks before releasing it. Cars pile up everywhere, people die left and right every single day. After the 20th sim day the beach behind my house had more headstones than the cemetery! Weird!! It takes a ridiculous amount of time to wake up, go to bed, shower, make a meal, eat a meal, anything that requires a transition. You can only use objects by putting them in your inventory first, books, meals, etc, but I only found that out by accident. You get the try for a baby prompt even when you are too old to try for a baby and that stupid fire code that keeps you from buying items or even exchanging and trying to purchase other items, is absolutely unnecessary and infuriating. There is probably a way to remedy that, but of course, it's not in the booklet. The only thing I am happy about in reference to this game is the fact that I did not pay full price for it. I had a coupon. Otherwise, I would have been even more disappointed. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS!
