Review- Big Brain Academy

Posted on 22nd October 2007 by nic in Game Reviews

Now when I think of games like Big Brain Academy I automatically think of hand held consoles. So when I started to play this game I had to think if it could stand on it’s own two feet in a static console.

I will leave it up to you to decide but today I will give you my slightly biased opinion. When I booted up the Wii system with this game I was automatically greeted in the academies hallway and it was almost pleasant to notice that my Mii Character was wandering around. Now after seeing that the available modes are limited I thought to myself that this game would be one best played with friends. If you haven’t got any then I suspect you have been playing your console a little too much. ;)

But as I go through the game I noticed that the graphics were not what you would call outstanding. But once again the Wii has managed to pull of a nice appeal with limited graphics. The graphics resemble somewhat of Wii Sports and those simplified elements worked well and in Big Brain Academy it has done the same. (more…)

Review- The Sims: MySims

Posted on 18th October 2007 by nic in Game Reviews

The Sim’s was based solely on the basis of a small household or party communicating with varies “sims” to become rich, famous or social upstanding. But Electronic Arts has taken a new approach with MySims.


MySims

Electronic Arts 2007, Video Game, $22.99

MySims is totally unique and different to previous versions much like the Wii. So they both suit each other perfectly. The Objective of MySims is simple, like most Wii Games. You must rise to the challenge and return a zero-star town to it’s former five-star glory. To do this you must build houses and buildings, interact with the townspeople and take on new projects and much more.

MySims is a Nintendo exclusive that suit the Wii, so the game is able to reach into areas where multi-platform games couldn’t. The Wii remote is once again used with full advantage and the navigation throughout the game is simple. To create your character in the game it takes only a matter of minutes and you can stylish and portray your character with a robust range of models and items to choose from. (more…)
