    "It's worth mentioning, though, that the PC version of TS3 has far fewer options in the Toy Box mode than the other versions. You can still customize the look of the buildings and of your citizens, but now when you customize one you customize them all. The result is that there's a lot less to do in town, and fewer ways to just play around. Furthermore, the PC version also has very little customization as far as the graphics go, making it a pretty mediocre looking game even if you have an awesome system."
