The freedom of The Sims™ 3 will inspire you with endless creative possibilities and amuse you with unexpected moments of surprise and mischief! Create millions of unique Sims and control their lives. Customize their appearances and personalities. Build their homes - design everything from exquisitely furnished dream homes to quaint cottages.

With all-new quick challenges and rewarding game play, The Sims 3 gives you the freedom to choose whether (or not!) to fulfill your Sims' destinies and make their wishes come true.

Transform your Sims' homes into sleek, edgy apartments with The Sims 3 Design & High-Tech Stuff. There's a host of new items for your most lived-in rooms, including slick gadgets for your high-tech study, a next-gen gaming system for the killer game room and modern furniture for the most contemporary living room. Now your Sims can give their homes an ultra-modern makeover!

The SIMS 3 Late Night Expansion Pack
Get your Sims an all-access pass to the hottest spots in town. Whether they mingle with celebrities or enjoy a casual night with friends, your Sims' social lives are getting a boost! But keep in mind that some scenes are more exclusive than others, so make sure your Sims have the right connections to get past the bouncers at the hottest clubs. Wherever your Sims go, they'll discover new things to become - adored celebrities, all-night partiers, rowdy bandmates, or sexy vampires. What will your Sims get up to after dark?

  1. TS3 does not work well on Macs
    by Louise Castro, USA - Jun 16th 2014

    TS3 was made for PC and works best if you use a partition. But if you don't, the game is routed through another program and creates all kinds of glitches in game play. It's a memory hog as well and you need to shut down everything else to play. It lags and crashes.

    Check out the Mac users reviews on TS3 website for more info.
    If you're new to playing a Sims game, I'd try S2, which doesn't have the problems S3 does. That or wait and see how S4, coming out in a few months, plays out and how it's reviews go.
