Apple is using its retail stores to demo one of the most anticipated games on the Mac in recent memory, The Sims 3.

Electronic Arts

The Electronic Arts game doesn't go on sale until June 2, but Apple stores are offering a sneak peek. The game is running on every Mac in the store, so you can try out a few of the features before you buy it.

The Sims 3 gives you tools like "Create a Sim" to customize your Sim more than ever before. You can change facial features, hair color, eye color, and determine the body shape of your Sim.

Another feature, "Create a Style" allows you to customize everything from your Sim's clothing to its furniture.
