Personalize your character, build a home and explore the neighborhood in Sims 3 for Nintendo DS. Read the review here.

Welcome to Beacon Bay

The Sims are back and better than ever. The setting for the new Sims 3 for Nintendo DS is Beacon Bay, a quite neighborhood on the water. Players can choose a home near the water (which is beautiful but may be threatened by typhoons) or closer to the city (where the hospital and art gallery is). Homes can be purchased furnished, unfurnished or non-existent (ie. bare lot). Each character begins with $20,000 Sims dollars to put towards their home.


Character Development

In Sims 3, players can create unique characters like never before. Starting off with a few basic choices for the face and body, players use the DS stylus to shape their character’s face. The nose can be enlarged or made smaller, the eyes can appear brighter and the cheekbones can be more pronounced. There are endless possibilities. Once this is complete, players can customize the skin color, hair color, eye color and outfit.

An interesting twist to Sims 3 is that you can now give your character a personality. Players choose up to four different personality traits (ie. artistic, brave, romantic, paranoid, etc) that help to shape the character. In addition, players must choose a destiny for their character. It is up to the player to decided whether their character wants to become an epic chef, a star athlete or an all-around genius.


Successful Sims

Once the character chooses a home and gets comfortable in Beacon Bay, life continues as normal. Players need to find their character a job, make friends with the neighbors and adventure throughout the city. New this version, players can now collect karma points and spend them to give their character instant wealth, beauty or love.

The Sims 3 is a welcome addition to the Sims franchise. The game builds upon past versions of the game, but delivers new features for old fans. The DS stylus allows for excellent control, as you can do everything from shape the character to draw walls and floors. New elements make this game desirable even for players who have an older version.
