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 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.

The Wii remote is very useful in this game and the construction of the game allows you to manoeuvre objects with ease. The essence of the game is simple, you must collects parts or items from around the town to build up or help varies members of the community. They may want you to build some furniture or construct a building so you get your items and start hammering away in your workshop. Your typical items still apply to homes and furniture and items around the home are designed nicely and have that Wii feel that kids love. The items or objects that are placed or created are all created with that childish feel that keeps the kids happy. Collecting essence is needed when creating your furniture. The items you create all depend on your personality and the essence you collect, your creations reflect that greatly. EA’s intentions of creating a game to suit the younger ages has worked well this time and I think this is what keeps kids enthralled.

The game is simple and fits into the Nintendo Wii Niche with ease. I hope you enjoy the game and although this is not a “party starter” I’m sure you will have some great fun with the game.
