The Sims 3 World Adventure

If you’ve ever wondered how utterly brilliant some of these game designers actually are, consider an average day in the life of a Sim. Wake up. Pee. Take a shower. Eat breakfast. Go to work. Come home. Eat dinner. Go to bed. Rinse, lather, and repeat. Millions of people have a blast playing this game, and using the toilet a major game feature! As far as I’m concerned, Will Wright is a god among men.

In the Sims games, you customize and control the life of a Sim, a creature whose life and world very closely resembles our own. You must fulfill its basic needs, like sleep and hunger, and also more complex responsibilities and desires, like staying employed and falling in love. You start off with some basic character customization and goal selection. Those of you with the first Sims 3 also have the option of importing in your old characters. Once your Sim is to your liking, a short tutorial walks you through everything you need to keep your Sim happy, healthy, and eager to travel.

The Sims 3 World Adventure

For those of you who loved the obsessive control of The Sims 3, but felt like the world was just a little too small, you’re in luck. World Adventures is basically identical to The Sims 3, but it opens up a whole range of travel opportunities for those of an exploring nature. In addition to Sunset Valley, your Sims can go off and master new languages in China, explore ancient tombs in Egypt, or learn the subtle nuances of foreign cooking in France.

These new locations are genuinely meaty additions to the original game. In addition to all the new Sims you can meet, there is a host of new shopping and food opportunities, with furniture and ingredients that can only be obtained by visiting certain locations. There is also a slew of new mini-games to distract and delight. These mini-games are what you must master in order to improve certain skills or prevent you from getting airsick on your travels. The fun factor of these mini-games can vary a bit, but they’re still a solid experience.

The majority of the game is touch-based, with a few mini-games here and there relying on the accelerometer. Fans of Sims 3 may be disappointed to learn that there are no photos, and while gardening is in, fishing is out, and in general, earning money in the game is a little on the arduous side. Travel is great, but day-to-day life can get boring, and you have to stay pretty focused on your Sim’s goals to be successful.

It’s certainly not reinventing the wheel, but with its sleek graphics and nice sound, The Sims 3 World Adventures is about as smooth and polished a simulation game as you can get. It’s only a small step up from the first one, but that still makes it an enormous step up from all the rest. If you already have The Sims 3, don’t expect any big changes, but if you’ve been waiting to see what all the fuss is about, Sims 3 World Adventure is the version you want.

  1. i am really dissapointed.. i payed for the sims 3 cheat on my iphone and the app cheats only work on your PC what is the point in this ?????

  2. this game is cool i love this game i have the sims 3 and this

  3. I would rate it 5 starts IF it has fishing and you can make a family, not just have a husband or wife

    and i also have a question

    When a Sim says get me a salmon and i’ll give you 100$, what do you have to do since you cant fish?

    Thank you

  4. Alas, the lack of fishing seems to have a lot of fans upset, since it was such a good source of income.

    If a Sim asks you for salmon in the game, that means they’re looking for a cooking ingredient. You can purchase regular ingredients at the market in town, but you can also buy exotic ingredients while on your travels. Hope that helps!

  5. I am liking the game so far…but I am lost on how to excavate the Pyramids…what does that game want you to do?

  6. Are you talking about the tomb exploration, Maddy? Usually the puzzles in there have to do with triggering some kind of pressure plate or finding something you can interact with, like a chest or a statue. Explore a bit and you’ll probably figure it out.

  7. Well it would be better if you could have kids 🙁

  8. It’s not bad so far. Really missing the fishing as well. One big problem is that I have only achieved 51 out of the 52 goals. I’ve been playing the game for 3 months now and there is no sign of the 52nd goal. Has anyone else had this problem? Would be good to get a list of the goals somewhere.

  9. How do you get a permotion?

  10. How the hell do you get married??

  11. how do you learn languages because i cannot

  12. how to get easy money

  13. to get easy money you have to have a jailbroken iphone, you then add cydia, you then search the repo for sims word adventure and add the patch. Once you have done this you can go into your saved game and each time you sell an item of furnature you get 30 times the selling amount. after you have sold an item or 2 you can then by a few flat screen tvs and then re sell them i got around $200,000 in a few mins

  14. I wanted to get a pramotion but he says u need world knowledge 5/5 and I have 4/5 I’ve explored the great wall the twin dragon thing effeille tower the arche de trihump the pyramids the ruins I’ve learned chinese what’s left to do?????? ?also how do you learn other languages

  15. Please can someone tell me how the you flippen have kids. i mean i have found the whole WooHoo thing, but that doesn’t actually make you have a baby. and i have been reading other comments and it says sometimes that they have had a kid. PLEASE TELL ME HOW!!!!!!!

  16. I don’t like that u can’t speed things up

  17. I am having fun with it but still cannot figure out the exploration mini-game and matching. Too fast to figure out what they want. Also – how do you get married? How many times do I have to give a ‘hot smooch’ to move it past partner? Geez

  18. how do you learn languages?

  19. When you travel someone asks if you want to go to a party. How do you go to the party?!?!

  20. When you travel someone asks if you wanna go to a party. How do you go to the party?!?!?!

  21. It’s a really good game, but if anybody knows any money cheats that do not involve jailbreaking, please let me know. I only earn 100 per day working at the museum and I can’t seem to get a promotion, so it takes weeks to save up for a holiday 🙁 but apart from that, it’s definately 5 stars. Some people are moaning about not being able to have babies like you can on Sims Ambitions… surely you can’t have a baby and then just leave her/him while you travel? Exactly.

  22. It is really easy to make more money in sims3 world adventure. Besides working monday to fri, my sim does gardening and sell the harvests to the market. Then after work she talks to the neighbors. Some neighboor asks for recipe you buy the recipe and give it to him and he pays you more than what you paid for it. One ask for french cheese and paid 200 for it. On fri after the last shift at work my sim pays for a 2 days visa to travel. My sim buys everything she need from these places. Every week end she has at least 2500 to 3000 coins to use while travelling. I hope this helps.

  23. I am also having problem with the ruin exploration. I cant seem to figure out how to do the symbol matching. please help.

  24. Maylen – you said “my sim does gardening and sells to the harvests to the market”
    I might be being stupid, but I can’t find the market?! Can anybody help me? LOL thank you. Because I have about 30 vegetables to sell(:

  25. Saffron- if you only go 1 day for 260 to save money and then go to all 3 places you will get a promotion at your job

  26. I want to know how do you get a salmon because my sim lives in sunset vally and my boss asked me to get him a salmon and he will pay me $100 but there is no fishing area and I’ve checked the super market but it’s not there so if you know where to find a salmon please write a comment and tell me where how and when


    Ps I have sims adventures on my iPad!! 😉

  27. To get Salmon you can go to the Market in China and buy one 🙂

  28. For the exploration symbol matching you must look at the picture in the middle and see where the pictures that look like it are and match them up under the middle picture hope that helped 🙂

  29. How do I invite a foreign friend to my home?? When I go to the phone and click ‘invite for visit’ it only gives me a list of people in sunset valley :-/

  30. If some one wants expert view regarding blogging and site-building
    afterward i advise him/her to pay a quick visit this web site, Keep up
    the pleasant work.

  31. Fascinating blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?

    A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog stand out.

    Please let me know where you got your design. Cheers
