Mac|Life has posted a new review of The Sims 3, the latest game in the popular series. The title adds customizable personalities, goal oriented gameplay, movie creation and editing, and an online community to the familiar lifesim formula. Mac|Life gave the game a score of 4 out of 5.

From the review:

The Sims 3 has an amazing scope of activities. You first create Sims (virtual people), guiding one or several through their lives. You can customize each with a unique appearance and clothing and pick several personality traits from dozens of options. As you earn money from the various careers--doctor, astronaut, chef, and more--you can outfit and remodel the Sims’ home. Hundreds of objects are available, including many paid and free online add-ons.

When they weren’t at work, our Sims saw movies, learned how to play instruments, threw parties on the beach, ordered pizza, and much more. Hundreds of these kinds of interactions lead to constant discoveries and surprises.

Relationships play a huge role. Our Sims made friends and enemies and went on dates. While the characters speak in gibberish, you’ll click general subjects, such as “Tell a joke.” Icons that float over other Sims’ heads and the tones of their voices explain the results, such as laughter or offense. Dozens of these dialogue options gave us a great sense of control.

All of these choices let you play The Sims nearly any way you want. Get married, have kids, and grow old with a traditional family. Make lots of money and buy fancy toys. Win hundreds of friends and throw legendary parties.
