The Sims 3 World Adventures Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Macworld has posted a new review of The Sims 3:World Adventures expansion for the popular sim game. WA gives players the chance to take their sims to a variety of exotic locales around the world where they can engage in a number of life changing adventures. Macworld gave the expansion a score of 3.5 out of 5.

From the review:

Going into the crypt was fun the first time and really shows off the tools that have been created to build a fully interactive world. The dungeons are far from scary and are only rarely dangerous, but the customization and ability to create clever puzzles puts the tools on par with some fantasy RPGs. I’m sure there are people already out there who are creating Dungeons and Dragons maps using these tools.

Still, the dungeons are pretty generic looking, are often tiny, and don’t provide much in the way of challenge. You’ll have to dig through bones to get a key, or swim into a pool to obtain it, or stand on a certain panel to unlock a door-pretty standard stuff. The “moving an object” puzzle is common too, but not easily executed thanks to some awkward controls. I wanted to move a large statue to the left in order for it to cover the block I needed, but routinely the Sim was only given the object of moving it the opposite directions of where I wanted to go. The small yellow directional indicator that appears during this movement interface needs to be overhauled.
