The Sims 3 (Xbox 360)
Advantages: Everything really, great game!
Disadvantages: EA Code can only be used once!
I initially got this game over the Christmas period, and didn't try it until a few weeks ago, as I wasn't quite sure what to expect, especially, as I loved the PC release. I also found that games on the PC don't usually make that jump to a next-gen console that well, (see Football Manager for example).
However, I was genuinely amazed and pleased with how well this game handled itself on the big stage. The graphics were fairly good, and bar the few minor glitches, the graphics were very sound. So, I have to admit, the grahics pulled me in to the game straight away, so good work EA.
The gameplay is a bit laggy at times, and although the game is laggy, I still found no real big issues when playing the game, and browsing through the menus on the game.
The actual game is very sound, with some good features, such as the connectivity to Xbox Live and it's famous Xbox Live Marketplace to download some new content for your Sims. However, one part that frustrated me was the fact that you can only use the EA code on one console. Unfortunately for me, we used the code on my brother's console first.
I think the game has been a big hit, and I am sure it will continue to cease to amuse me for hours and hours. My Sims now have a job each, and are bringing in a decent income, so I am pleased to say that I am doing fairly well. We've also built a reasonable house, which it's exterior is much nicer than it's interior haha.
Overall, I'd give this game a 8/10, as it is very addictive and fun to play. I would recommend this game to anyone of any age, as it really is great fun.
Summary: Great game, just wish EA would sort the code issue out!
