Summary: When adapting a big game to a handheld system, how much can be stripped away before the game loses its identity? The Sims 3 on the 3DS tries valiantly to retain the series' absorbing life management, serving up some of the easygoing dollhouse joy that Sims addicts have come to crave.
Pros: Watching sims interact is always delightful, Unplanned and planned events alike can lead to hilarity
