Since my earlier post about The Sims 3, in which I was impressed at how long it was taking me to find bugs, I have found a few. Most of them are pretty minor and slightly inconvenient. But now I’ve hit an actual show-stopper. More on that later.
Sims 3 is also continuing to impress me. Its gardening is smoother than Sims 2’s. The painting is more interesting. Heck, all the skills are just better-done. I’m especially loving mechanical upgrades and how an expert mechanic can just keep things from ever getting dirty or breaking.
Among the biggest (and most awesome) surprises for me have been the career changes. Whereas in the previous Sims games every job was just “work these hours, these days, make this money”, Sims 3 has really broken the mold.
