A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that The Sims World Adventures is an in-depth simulation game. The feel is similar to PC versions of The Sims 3, but is tailored to fit the constraints of this platform. Players will have the opportunity to travel to Egypt, China, and France to explore landmarks, taste the cuisine, make friends, and learn special Sim skills such as language and bartering. Sims will need to get a job to pay for their traveling habit and to purchase exotic furniture and ingredients from other countries. As with other The Sims games, your Sims can fall in love and dive under the sheets.
Is it any good?
THE SIMS 3 WORLD ADVENTURES is entertaining, while also providing some educational content. Game progress can be slow, especially at first, and there are times when it feels tedious and repetitive. If you choose a good job and budget wisely, however, you can travel around, earning awards and buying up exotic merchandise. In-game optional goals give you something to work for and keep things moving along. You may or may not choose to play long enough to pick up all of the available badges, but you'll most likely get your money's worth either way.
