Excerpt: The ultimate "people" simulator has arrived on the iPhone and iPod Touch with EA's The Sims 3 World Adventures . When I first heard that the Sims 3 World Adventures were about to be released on this format, let's just say that I was quite dubious. It would not work I thought to myself because you need a mouse to play. Even when they tried to port the game to lounge room consoles, it still didn't work. how can you play this game without a mouse? It's not possible! Boy...
Excerpt: At last, consoles get their very own version of last year’s hit PC title. Enemy Territory charts the invasion of earth by the brutal Strogg, an army of aliens with a wee bit of a chip on their shoulder. So it’s up to you—as either a human Global Defense Force (GDF) soldier or a Strogg hardass—to save, or enslave, the world. Quake Wars is intended as an online blaster; although an offline mode exists, it doesn’t match the intensity of battling real opponents.
Excerpt: There is little point reading this article unless you like the Sims. Its very much a marmite game, and those who love it either have a god complex or a lot of spare time.

Summary: Parents need to know that this is an expansion pack for The Sims 3, and players must already have a copy of The Sims 3 installed on their computer for the expansion pack to work. The expansion allows Sims to take vacations, and introduces new character traits, skills, items to purchase, and other add-ons.
Conclusion: But the number of issues with the game are rather minor gripes. As far as the game goes, Lead and Gold does a great job of putting the gamer in the shoes of a Wild West outlaw (or sheriff, depending on which side of the law you would prefer to be). The locations more than put you in the scene, whilst the audio (apart from the weak sounding weapons) does a marvelous job of building the ambience of the Wild West.
