A very faithful adaptation to the PC game. Overall, the gameplay is solid and the elements translate nicely to the mobile platform, buy the pinch-zoom does leave something to be desired, as to some of the scrolling elements. However, if you are a fan of the game, then this version is highly recommended!

Long load times but good version
I thought the load times going between house and town seemed too long and I had some problems with the zooming. Otherwise the game seems well done.

Seems like a solid game
SIMs isn't really my preferred genre, so I only played this for a while and stopped. But the graphics were good, launch time was acceptable, the navigation and gameplay seemed good. I imagine a hardcore SIMs player would give it a higher score, but I just didn't find the gameplay that interesting.

Plays okay, but the camera is frustrating to get moved around to the view where you want it, and loading for every transition can be a bit tedious.
2010-10-30 05:37 AriaMel
Looks like fun, but the multitouch controls don't seem to be working correctly. Fix in an update coming?

Fair game that looks good.
Ok game but perhaps it's because it's not my favorite genre. It's nice to see the phone's senors being used in the game. Good way to kill some time on the bus.

The gameplay is limited to a much smaller subset of attributes and minigames than the desktop version but it scales well to the Phone. The fishing uses the accelerometer well and is actually pretty fun! Moving the camera around can be cumbersome especially since the zoom gesture seems backwards. But despite that, this is a fun and addictive game.

Haven't really played Sims before, but this game kept me entertained! I like that in Sims you can build relationships with people and do other things to your own house. There is a bit of wait between going home and going to town, or meeting someone, but generally isn't too long. The game seems to be stuck while I was talking to my spouse that's why I'm out of the game now. Edit: It did keep my progress in the game, so not a big issue.

I have never played Sims 3 before but it was pretty interesting for first time user. I'll probably need to spend more time on it, but pretty satisfied so far. It seems a little overpriced to me though.
2010-10-22 22:57 wooramy
This is an excellent mobile version of the Sims 3 game on the PC. It has the same feel of the PC game with intuitive controls. Well done.
2010-10-21 04:11 TimmiBui
Fun, but transitions slow
This is pretty much what I would expect for a Sims mobile game. The transitions between house/town seemed kind of slow, but the witty comments strolling on the bottom of the screen kept me entertained. Also, the camera controls are a bit wonky.
2010-10-20 21:27 CareerLlama
Nothing special
If you're a Sims fan then you should be happy to bring the game with you. I used to play Sims 2 with some extention packs on the PC, maybe it was the larger screen real estate that made it seem a more fluid experience. Overall, I wish there was something new to the game.

Everyone's favorite Sims experience, in the palm of your hand. This is an excellent example of how to bring a desktop game to mobile, capturing the core experience while adding new mobile-specific experiences (fishing!) The gameplay is flawless. Graphics are great and the load times are very fast compared to games with similar quality content. Only issue is the control scheme for the camera. While the idea is inspired, the implementation leaves a little to be desired.
2010-10-19 20:24 seraline
Almost perfect-- the big flaws are awkward camera controls, and long waits between transitions. But other than that, it's a lot of fun.
2010-10-19 17:50 OneDot618
Finally achievements for my time!
I've played on multiple platforms and finally get the achievement payoff! Control takes some getting used to, but the core gameplay is the familiar one we've all grown to love!
2010-10-19 17:33 Depeche
Agree with other reviewers about camera/pinch and zoom controls - hard to control. Game is fun otherwise, pretty much like the desktop version. Smaller real estate on the screen so more panning to move your character around and find things to do.
2010-10-19 04:09 SilvrClovr
Good but not great
The camera was hard to adjust, I got stuck with it zoomed in all the way. Fix the camera controls in the next version and this is a 4 or 5 star game.
2010-10-18 22:05 FlynPrplPplEtr
It looks pretty good. control is bit hard for me (zoom in/out) tough.
2010-10-18 04:19 tsyoo
Pretty fun and well done.. Impressive.. Great for people who love to waste time :P
2010-10-17 05:45 LCyberFox
Although limited in features compared to the PC version, it has great graphics, faithful Sims gameplay, and less mundane/more streamlined actions.

2010-11-23 21:19 ravenXrouge
Great game but ...
It's a high quality game, well written, and reasonable performance. However, I have the following feedback: -More items to purchase -Add control over house remodeling -More things to do in town -How to date someone else after breaking up? I still can't figure out after playing for three days -Some menu options are too difficult to get to -Some menu control lack smoothness -Add more variation to the game, too easy to get tired of repeating same goals These would make the game even more enjoyable to play. I'm generally happy with the purchase though.

Moving around is not the easiest thing but the game looks great and is nice on this platform.

The controls are so awful that the game is unplayable. The game lacks polish and feels like shovelware. Avoid this app.
2010-11-28 05:59 BowserCub
The game itself is a good game, I like it. But as BowserCub said, the controls make it absolutely unplayable. Stick to Sims for the computer or other systems.

2010-12-05 19:22 EliteGravy
The trial was so short that my sim didn't even get a chance to talk to anyone. Graphics are poor and controls are confusing. I don't feel like paying 7 bucks for the full version since I have no reason to believe it would be any better.
2010-12-07 03:01 Jakub Poznanski
Not too bad for a larger screened phone. I just might buy it
2010-12-08 16:56 Player425985449
This game is met for the PC but does do a good for WP7. I may buy this game the only thing I don't like is that the game has a bad camera angle and no mater how much you try and fix the problem it end in a bad angle.
2010-12-11 00:57 Lavangfan
Game is okay, however, its PC and console counterparts are much better.
2010-12-10 23:26 arukun14
love this game, yeah the camera is a little weird to get used to in this version but it works well, plays smooth and gets me my sims fix :)
2010-12-14 19:03 drownlikeyou
Good game but camera angles suck but hey!! Its a big jump from the old version of Sims backing in the WINMO device days lol. And$6.99 is kinda bad to ask for. I think $4.99:-D
2010-12-14 04:54 infamouskater25
WARNING: Do not by this game until there is an update. You currently can't save ur progress. Otherwise this game is great. The only bad part is the camera.

Do NOT ever delete a saved game. I had multiple saved games and after deleting just one of them it went all buggy as heck. Lost all goals tracked and upon creating a new game it wouldnt keep the sim settings for the sim upon start. Multiple tries. Last restart of app and ALL saved games and progress lost. Fun game but wait for a patched version before investing time in it. Current version is still
2010-12-21 22:08 Churchill
Good game. Fun, funny, witty, but somewhat repetitive too. I like it
2010-12-25 03:10 kalesh12
I like it. Good for killing time when you have a long wait. Pretty easy to figure out if you play the Sims at all.

Boring. Just like the PC version. I wish maxis was still doing this game, EA Fudged up a classic.
2010-12-30 03:02 NoobSlider
STILL cannot save progress. Wish I had known that before I bought the game. If you like Sims on the computer, you will like this app, but wait until saving issues are fixed.

Pros: autosaves in *most* situations if you accidently close app, simple, time consuming, plays similar to original The Sims game. Cons: can not queue conversation actions, can not repeatedly fish without re-entering minigame, too much random dying (but if you do die you just go back in and huzzah, you're not dead). Overall enjoyable. I like the simplicity, the familiarity & the gameplay. Price is a bit steep but probably worth it.

2011-01-08 02:02 Queen Jeanna
It's pretty fun, some more customization and the ability to make more Sims in a family would be better.
2011-01-10 00:32 YourCommander93
Issues first: cannot save game. When doing any repetitive activity (talking with Sims, fishing, gardening) the menu must be brought up for each individual action. Far too easy to get into a loop where your sim will end up dying. Otherwise, this game is completely playable. It is not worth seven dollars though. I wish I had bought a different game.

Not too good and needs better controls.
2011-01-15 15:53 RedPhoenixFlame
Miss the iPhone version so if they improve it to be like that it would be perfect, needs more customization and better controls like zooming in/out etc, queue actions would be nice too, overall a good game shouldn't be over 4.99 IMO tho.
2011-01-15 06:37 xMrsMaynardx
Enjoyable game. It looks and plays well. For the most part it has good controls, besides trying to zoom is difficult sometimes. A little too pricey too, but if you really like the Sims then it would be worth the price of admission
2011-01-21 06:43 good sk8er
Fun at first. Gets repetitive. Wake up. Use the bathroom. Take a shower. Call someone. Cook something to eat. Watch t.v. Go to work. Go to someone's house. Talk. Go home and do it all over again until you get fired..
