Here are my findings so far. Please let me know if I got any of this wrong!
Some things I was disappointed about:
*Still no edit town button on the town screen. I like to fill the town with my created sims vs. the developer created ones. Could not find a way to do this on the Xbox version.
*Maintaining/deleting unwanted downloaded clothing and items is still a pain. Why can't I delete unwanted content from the Edit Sim screen???
*This is not an expansion pack, it is a completely separate game. So be ready to say goodbye to the sims you created in the Xbox version of The Sims. Time to create some new ones. I was hoping for an import option from one game to the other sort of the way Fable or Mass Effect works. Missed opportunity here in my opinion.
And here are some things I liked:
*The pets are really great. By far the best pets experience you will have in The Sims so far. Being able to control the pets adds a lot to the game. There are no horses in the console version but that doesn't bother me personally. I'm more of a cat person.
*The Digging and Hunting options for the dog and cat are really fun!
*There are some sort of town mysteries that you can figure out.Read more ›
EA's not trying to fix console issues right now, because EA said that not enough people are bringing the 'console' game issues to their attention.
Here's what i noticed right away in just a few hours of gameplay:
-Fine Control doesn't work, by pressing RT and rotating objects in buy/build mode, you can only turn object in 8 directions, you can't turn and place object in just any angle anymore, and you can't place object any spot other than the spot it locks on, on the grid automatically. This option was supposed to be in this game, it even sais so in the manual in tutorial. And Sims 3 for XBOX 360 could do it.
-Game is unusually quiet, because i noticed that the sims' objects television and computer has no sound at all.
-(An issue for Canada version players is that they didn't get the 12 hour clock like the United States did. They got the 24 hour military clock like the UK instead, with no option to swich it. (And Canada Always Used To get the 12 hr clock like the U.S. in all previous sims games.)
-Sims clothes in live mode look dull and faded, and i noticed jean material to be kind of blurred.
-Game play seems kind of slow, feels like a bit of delay when you click to do anything.
-Fast forward can make a bit of stutter or can send my sim flying across the room or float across room sometimes.
-If sims click on pet and select 'ask to follow' sim, that command doesn't work.
-A pregnant NPC had a stomach on bottom but flat on top, like a pouch, so you could see inside her.
-My sims character lost her voice and i had to replace my lot to get her voice back. nothing else could fix it.Read more ›
And it is, you can still do create a mode, which was important to me, and graphics are the same. A few silly glitches for my game, but nothing that would ever make me think less of it (for example my toddler kept the same face and clothes but practically stretched out tall when the cat sniffed him)
Bought for my 360, basically under 30 dollars for a game that, in my opinion, is BETTER than sims 3 in general. There are a couple new cool things in build and buy mode, As far as I know the PC version is the only one with other animals other than just dogs and cats. Still way worth it even if there is only 2 species. With high free will, the animals are pretty much spot on with real actions for the animals, so it's fun to watch. Animals are aloud to have jobs which is cute :) Basically, in the grave yard, police station ect. Animals have only one skill level they can progress. Dogs: Digging, you can find seeds, gems, rocks, bugs, and relics. The museum gives you money for finding them. Cats: Hunting you can find bugs, and spirits. You are able to give you're findings as a cat, to your owner as a gift or you can keep the bugs/spirits in your house, and of course sell all that the animals find.
As for the sims in the careers, the skill levels they "need" to get a promotion, have higher expectations. In Sims 3, it was basically 'work on getting your logic up you skill point. Next promotion another skill point.' For this one I've noticed the first expectation for your job is to have it up 3 skill points, thankfully skill points don't seem to matter. For example my sim's are up to level 7 & 8 with all skill levels on the low side, and are still progressing.
Highly recommend this, can't beat the price for more added in the build and buy, plus being able to have animals.
Can't wait to see if there will be an ad on for 360
