This MySims focuses on exterior and interior decorating as well as have the builder integrated with in the game (pause between modes). If you like decorating/customizing, you'll enjoy this game. You don't have to wait for long load times anymore and the bad jitters are gone.
Some people did not like the furniture building that was in the first one and this game removes it completely. You could be someone who misses that.
The game isn't over when the credits role. There is still about 30% left at that point. It's cool to take a second pass through the levels and be a completest.
The only bad part was chasing the stage actor around. If you chased passed the bridge when you weren't suppose to, it's near impossible to have him cross back over.
MySims Kingdom is weak and repetitive. It offers less opportunity for creativity than the first MySims. On the rare occasions when you do get to create or customize a house, the quota for the attribute (e.g. cute) is so high that you don't have any creative freedom; you have to just spam it with a ridiculous amount of cute items.
And who thought of herding?!?! This is the worst game mechanic ever. You have to herd various things to various places, but every time you leave, they leave and you have to re-herd them. It's ridiculous and completely not fun. Especially when they get stuck in corners.
