    Although the Dual Shock is mapped to function as all of the buttons you could ever need to contol your Sims, I found the interface to be clunky and unintuative. A keyboard and mouse would have made the experience a thousand times more enjoyable.

    Because of the excellent job EA has done in its implementation, this new graphics engine feels comfortable and natural.
  3. PC users may be disappointed, however, as the core of the game is still essentially the same.
  4. The game is ideal only for those who are interested in the PC phenomenon but can't (or won't) play it on a PC. The rest of us will be duly impressed, but may ultimately decide to get a life elsewhere.
