First off let me say that if you do not own this game you have to buy it right now. This is the game everyone has been waiting to come out on the Wii. I know not many people will read this because it is late, but everyone else says the same thing, so it does not much matter I would love to give this game a ten, but there are a few things that are annoying. For instance, character customization could be better, and the camera angle is not very good. But at the flop side, everything else about this game is totally awesome. The characters are hilarious, the tasks are really fun to do, the powers for your wand are pretty cool. The storyline is not perfect, but decent enough.
Pros: Hilarious characters and voices, tasks are really fun, graphics are nice, it is fun to find new tasks and to travel new places. Overall, the finest Wii game yet.
Cons: Camera sinks, storyline could be better, and a few characters can be annoying, and character customization.
This game is pure gold and every Wii owner must own it. If you're a fan of LittleBig Planet or Boom Blox, this is the game for you.
MySims Kingdom is not your average Sims title. In fact, it’s nowhere close. This spinoff does carry with it abilities and attributes its predecessors made leaps and bounds in, but on a much smaller scale. It’s “Sims Jr.”, if you will. Everything has been condensed to make it a little more user friendly to the newer gamers now entering the market. The area of play is smaller; the building areas are smaller; there are fewer animations, fewer items used to build structures, etc. I think you get the picture. Pair those problems with a few potentially game ending glitches and fairly moronic AI and MySims Kingdom can become a MySims Nightmare.
However, it does have one thing that may outshine all that - accessibility. Sure, you may not have the freedom to create as once was granted, but the game is easy to manage and easy to enjoy. You won’t be overwhelmed with hundreds of building options or confusing menus to navigate here; it’s all simple and to the point.
Strangely enough, I’m still having a good time playing the game, even with these objections. The game is extremely easy to get into and enjoy. The time consuming aspect older Sims titles require is hardly a bother here. I can simply pick up and play the game at my convenience and not worry if my town was destroyed. The missions are easy and rewarding; I can perform a quick task, get new abilities, and go back to creating. Most menus are easy to navigate and understand and the few portions of the game that require a motion are done with ease.
Aside from the drawbacks some older Sims players may take note of, the game does deliver on its intentions. MySims Kingdom is not meant to be a highly sophisticated, time consuming beast; it’s simply a short and sweet jaunt into the genre. Fans of the old formula will probably be a bit disappointed, but those who don’t wish to invest hours upon end on a game will be delighted.
I would consider myself a fairly big gamer, and I think MySims Kingdom is one Sim-sational game.
