Games review: The Sims 3: World Adventures


Format PC, Mac

Publisher Electronic Arts

To say that the Sims series is no stranger to expansion packs would be an epic understatement. Spin-offs have run the gamut from pets to extreme weather conditions, so it’s no surprise that less than six months after the launch of The Sims 3, the first add-on for it has landed. World Adventures broadens the Sims’ horizons by sending them on family holidays and getting them to tackle local challenges. The better the Sims do, the longer theirVisas last. Some sections (notably the tombexploring excursions) feel slightly out of place, and dragging your Sim family around the world can be more exhausting than it is entertaining.
