The Sims 3 (Wii)
Simulation 05 November 2010
The third major installment in a life simulation game series, The Sims. The title was developed by The Sims Studio in cooperation with Maxis and Electronic Arts. As per usual, The Sims 3 lets you take control of a life of a virtual character from the cradle to the grave. Your job is to provide for the needs of your family of Sims when it comes to their social interactions, family matters, and career. The Sims 3 introduces two significant novelties to the game: lifetime wishes and a personality system that attributes 5 dominant character features to each Sim. As compared with previous installments in the franchise, the game’s 3D visuals were significantly improved.
The Sims 2: Pets (Wii)
Simulation 19 June 2007
The fourth expansion for the popular game The Sims 2, in which you control the daily lives of player-created characters. As the title suggests, the expansion adds various pets to the game: from dogs and cats to guinea pigs, fish, hamsters and birds. You can design your pets just like your human Sims. They can also wear many accessories, such as scarves and collars. You have to remember, however, that the pets don't live forever and you have to take care of their basic needs, such as hunger and the need to relieve themselves. Dogs and cats in particular require quite a lot of entertainment, care, and training. The Sims 2: Pets includes a reward and punishment system, which allows you to better train your animal companion — otherwise, you risk mischief and collateral damage. Curiously, the well-cared-for pets can become show-business stars, which earns you a monthly reward.
