Summary: This games has a feature in which the more items you buy for your home the more the possibility increases that it will become a fire hazard. Probably not a bad idea for a real life home, but not even in my real life home can anybody put a limit on how much stuff I cram into my home if I wanted to. So, I built this roomy house on the game with trees, fence, gates etc...but when it was time to furnish the house the fire bar had already gone into the red zone.
Summary: The game was fun until the game froze up when I tried to save. The latest patch was installed on my PS3 (which is supposed to correct the save-freeze problem). I would not recommend purchasing this game.
Summary: I made sure that my computer fit all the guidelines this game required and while it did eventually work, it wasn't very often. I tried to remove it and put it onto another computer but that didn't work because it had already been registered with the first computer. I contacted customer service and they had no problem helping me out with resetting it so when I was finally able to play it I lost out on all the cool things it was supposed to come with. I figured 'Oh well.
Summary: i loved this game at first... and for a while after i got it.. but i got really far into the game and it started to freeze. so i would save during game play just to make sure i wasat wasting my time.. but it would freeze when i tried to save.. everytime. -_- i contacted EA and tried everything they suggested. nothing worked. i played for 12 hrs straight in order to beat the game.. i have heard that the save freeze is commmon with the console version..
Summary: I bought this in store for PS3 and only played it 5-6 times so far. Like others, I encountered the evil super long/no save bug. My PS3 is in fine working condition(only a year old), with a ton of memory and space. I spent 3-4 hours of gameplay like an addicted monkey (because the game, to me, really is fun) and when I attempted to save, it decided to take forever. I ended up leaving my ps3 on all night in hopes that the save would be successful. It was not.
DO NOT BUY THIS GAME IF YOU ARE NOT A SIMS FAN!!!!

Summary: I bought this game on Saturday and played it until sunday afternoon and I never played it again.Then in two weeks I returned it.What I have to say is, if you don't own the whole sims series and love the gameplay I would'nt buy it.Casual gamers might like the game but Hardcore gamers would hate this game.
Summary: first of all E A should of made the game more enjoyable by allowin the Sims to drive there car around the town and also letting the sims go in to the bakery and shopping and movies and jobs and lettin us go inside and stuff like that its ignoring that only 2 neighbors lives close to me and also not putting in a 2 way player to invite friends to join in the game the graphics look fake and low quality i mean i taught it was going to be as good as the trailer but come on...
Summary: I have been a fan of the Sims for a long time now, and was thrilled to get this game as a gift. Unfortunately there is a fatal bug in this game, and EA seems to have NO plans to patch it. For a lot of people, the game eventually stops saving! For the record, my playstation 3 memory is not even 20% full, and I haven't used any cheats. Apparently this has been a problem in both the xbox 360 version and the PS3 version.
