Alright, I got this game last month and it has a learning curve, and is different from the other two.
How Good is the game?- it's pretty cool, though People familiar with the Sims 2 will find this game a little hard at first, since you need to relearn everything in the interface.
What kinds of things can you do in the game?- Pretty much the same as the past games, however You cant' go to college a vacation or downtown yet.
How is it so different from The Sims 1 and 2? - It's pretty different, as said before the interface is different, and unfortunately you can't create neighborhoods from scratch easily.
What are some special things you can do in the game? - Persistent world is the best feature that is special. Thee is no load screen when you leave a lot, you can explore everywhere with your Sim.
Is it really worth 40 bucks? - Personally, I say it's more around 30 dollars, they took many things out (for future expansions possibly)
Can you build multi-story houses?- Yes
Can you drive the car?- Your Sims have vehicles still.
Travel around the actual neighborhood?- Yes
Can you really make a unique character like the website says?- Yes, given the customization options, the possible Sims are almost unlimited.
Can you actually work at your job?- Well Your Sims travel to this place, you don't see them, but they go into a building in the neighborhood that you can't see into. However you can tell your Sim what to do at his job if you want, the same goes for school.
The Sims 3 got a 9 out of 10 by Gamespot which earned it editor's choice, which means it's worth buying since it's hard to please them. it's different, and I am upset they went totally different with the set up, so it will take time to get used to again, but they improved many things and made the game very realistic looking. it has the ability, in game to tun off Aging, and adjust the speed in which all Sims age globally.
Roof Pitch selection is in the game finally (Sims 2 mansion and garden stuff added that for Sims 2)
Your Sims get to keep career cars.
Furniture can be diagonal.
Cars just need parking spaces, no driveways.
Sims can do actions in the world that relate to their job. (police Sims can dig up evidence on others and write reports)
The Young Adult is now an Age type in world.
The customization of colors and textures makes this game the best ever for customization. You can color your own outfits, change textures on them, the same goes for the furniture.
You can adjust what your Sim sounds like too.
The Personality system replaces the Aspiration system, which has you select 5 personality traits to define a single Sim from a list of about 50 traits.
Custom Content can be added, this is just starting out though. Mod The Sims 2 is starting to crank out things for Sims 3
Overall it's worth buying, It takes time to get used to, but it's awesome.
