One of my good friends has been looking forward to the release of it for a few months now, I dunno if he ended up getting it though.

I'm going to hold out before getting it. From the reviews I've read, although a decent game, it's not worth the hype it has/had. I've also heard that Maxis has cut corners with Sims 3 - you don't have as many options with babies and Sims stand next to cars and teleport in rather than open the door. The jump from Sims 1 to Sims 2 was amazing, I'd even say revolutionary. The upgrade from 2 to 3? Not so much.

Also, Sims 3 isn't for the player who likes to play different house holds. Because Maxis has taken free will to pretty much the highest level, it seems like the game intends you to only play one household.

So yeah, I'll hold out. Too bad you can't rent computer games, huh?

Yeah, I would hold off. I got it and, though my computer had all of the requirements, it still ran completely slow, the graphics were sort of fuzzy, and it just wasn't what I'd thought it would be. Disappointing. In my opinion it almost seems like this should have been Sims 2, and Sims 2 should have been Sims 3. The only things I really liked where the personality options (clumsy, artistic, etc), the customizable colors for shoes and clothes as well as being able to switch thing up like change the shoes that went with an outfit, and the increased range of movement for the neighborhood.

Yeah. Build-a-sim was the biggest feature they worked on, I think.
