Summary: I was so looking forward to getting this game because I prefer playing Sims 3 on my XBOX 360. My daughter plays Sims 3 on her PC and has every Sims 3 add-on/expansion pack available. Naturally when this game came around for the XBOX I thought "cool, I can add it to my already established Sims households I have saved on my XBOX". Unfortunately, when I popped the game in, I realized I couldn't "add-on" to my Sims 3 game but had to start an entirely new family etc.
Summary: The controls are confusing if your used to the PC version and then using cheats suck because you have to play in a different way when you use the cheats and you don't get all the benefits of the game. They have this fire safety thing that you can buy only a certain amount of things for your home and if the bar goes into the red than you can not purchase anything else. I think that is the worst part of the game..
Summary: The Sims being put on xbox or any game console seemed like a good idea but, it will never compare to the PC version. It takes away most of your creative ability, and game play isn't really the same. It's fun, but you are better off getting the PC version if you can.
Summary: You need to be aware of the fact that you are the one controlling everything when you set up your family. Until each animal has been trained to go outside, you are responsible for checking their status to ensure there's no mess to clean up. It can get a little confusing at first, but it is a fun game. I liked making the dogs go after the babysitters. Very funny.
Wish it was more clear on the dfference of the console verses the PC/Mac

Summary: AHH I trully was driven to play or own horses here!! Rarely encounter games with horses and some are lousy so I had trully, HIGH expectations as the console version having horses! So yeah I'm pissed..like cats and dogs but something different is always more exciting and a curious expereince. GREAT overall but damn them for not adding horses!!
