The Sims 3 Create a Sim - Is this purchase really necessary?
Written at 06:14 by Andy - 7 comments.

When I saw this advertised, I was naturally curious. In being a completist when it comes to all things sim, I decided to go ahead and buy it in the event that it gave me something that I did not already have. To put it in that proverbial nutshell, it did not.

The title says it all. It is merely the Create a Sim feature from The Sims 3. It does not add anything new and serves as a taster for those for those who do not already have The Sims 3. For those who do have The Sims 3 and just want to work on creating sims, it does not even provide the facility to transfer them into the game itself and only allows uploading to the exchange.

I do not like being negative with my reviews but I have to be honest. I am very disappointed and I recommend people do not waste their money on this.
