Unfortunately, it’s when you start to dig deep into the many, many features of The Sims 3 that the experience starts to grate. Testing The Sims 3 on an N97 we found the controls difficult, frustrating and unresponsive at the worst of times. Simple tasks such as making your Sim walk involves more taps of the screen than should be necessary. It’s not a problem all of the time, but it’s still annoying. What makes it worse is the sluggishness of the game’s touchscreen sensitivity, most notably in menus requiring you to slide a bar to access further options.
