3DS Two New Reviews

We do hope that E3 was as good for you as it was for us although I think we all need a bit of a rest now. Time to sit back, relax and enjoy two new reviews

Given just how frequent Sims games are released it was almost guaranteed that EA would release one for the 3DS and they did: The Sims 3. If you're a fan of the genre (and a 3DS owner) then you probably already have this but does it appeal to a wider audience? You can see what Chris thought in his full review here.

Nintendo's Steel Diver shouldn't require any introduction. After all, the concept has been a round since the early days of the DS but just how well does this play as a 3DS title? Andrew spends some time underwater, and you can see what he thought, in his full review here.

  • I'm all for a Sims game, but a good one would be nice. They should just port everything the PC one has over.

  • Doesn't quite work like that, though. The way The Sims 2 worked on the DS showed that what EA need to do is streamline the experience to make it work on the console without cluttering the display or giving confusing controls. That doesn't necessarily mean getting rid of all of the mechanics, rather pulling back a little and making it as accessible as it is on the PC. Anyway, I'm waiting for Steel Diver to 'dive' in price before I have a go. I'm intrigued but even at £20 it'd be too expensive.

  • I agree Steel Diver I was interested in, and probably would of bought it at its high price if it came out at launch.

  • @Ganepark32: Same here. Have to admit that I still think that €45 is pretty much for a game. For Zelda, I think it can be justified: the game is pretty long, has multiple modes that allow you to go through the game once more, etc. With most platformer titles or a game such as Steel Diver, I never really find myself "going through it again".
