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.
