I love the sims. So i was excited to hear there was another game coming out. When i got the game, i was disappointed. All you do is build furniture. I like to do that but not all the time. I like to take care of them.. I think if you like to build furniture all the time you will like this game....but its not a true sims game.
MySims was fun....however...a gamer will spend a long period of time, not only building a town, but just waiting for a scene to load. Every time you walk into or out of a building there is approximately a five second delay, because the game statistics need to load. Let me repeat that, every time you walk into or out of a building the game goes into a loading sequence, often wasting a lot of gaming and personal time. All in all, the game is fun!
I have to admit I am a Sim addict starting with the original SimCity and also a structural engineer so I like the building aspect of these games. So I find this game cute but not challenging. However, I don't think it's meant to be for adults. This is by no means the best Sim game I've played but it's great for the younger Sim generation. It is mostly a game of collecting objects, talking to people and building houses and objects. My son has just been introduced to video game consoles with the Wii at age 5. He gets frustrated with a lot of the other games because he hasn't gotten the hang of the controllers and the other games get away from him and he looses interest. The controls, even though the nun chuck is used, are pretty basic and he can read the on screen instructions, so it keeps his interest and he seems to be getting better with the controllers. If I was a hard core gamer I would give this a much lower score but it's a cute game for kids and their Sim addicted parents ;-).
