A fun little adventure game.

  • Summary: I'm going to go ahead and laugh at the two low rated posts, because one expected a sims game on the GBA to replicate the complicated game on the PC and PS2, with it's far inferior parameters. Sims Bustin' Out on GBA is by no means a typical "The Sims" game, It's an adventure game where you explore a town, helping people out and doing oddjobs, dealing with your motives and having fun little conversations with npc.

What's with the Low Scores?

  • Summary: EA actually knew what they were doing when they made the Gameboy Advance version. The gameplay of the console versions, are just to complex for a handheld. You can't create graphics that stand up to the Gamecube, and expect it to win. It's a handheld system, think about the graphics on the HANDHELD. Also, the gameplay was fantastic too.

Actually, Not Bad

  • Summary: Everyone seems to be giving this game a really low score. That is not the case in my opinion. It may not have the BEST graphics or gameplay but its better than what you would expect from a GBA Sims game, and for what its worth, its pretty fun. With all the other new, exciting games out there I would probably suggest passing up this one, but, if you are looking for a game with a pretty decent gameplay, GBA graphics, and funky music, as well as a cheap tag price, then...

Not so great but not the worst.

  • Summary: I remember getting this game when I was like 11 or 12 ? I'm 15 now and when I think about when I use to play the game, I wouldn't say it was the worse game. People who are used to the Sims PC games and bigger consoles and better graphics would of course not like this game but I grew up with the Sims games for GBA and I didn't think the game was that bad.

not a good game

  • Summary: Okay the thing is, i bought this game because i wanted a handheld sims. but it stinks, you have to go around doing everybody's errands instead of going around and doing what you want to do. the graphics aren't as good as on the PS2. your sims don't even talk, they just mumble and don't have any expression. if you want some really good games, check out the sims bustin' out, the sims 2, and the original sims on PS2, gamecube, or your own PC.

Nostalgia buy

  • Summary: I don't think anyone is ever likely to stumble upon this review (after all, this game is basically retro by this point), but I'll chip in with my thoughts anyway. Still entertaining! I find that there's far more to engage with and work towards than the graphic-focused games of nowadays. After borrowing this game from my friend about 8 years ago, I suddenly decided that it would be worth a buy. And it was. I would still recommend it to anyone!

  • Summary: I got this game when it was first released in 2003. I recently purchased it again for nostalgic purposes and I think I had more fun playing it this time around! I highly recommend this game to anyone thinking of purchasing it. I certainly didn't think twice!

Sims Virgin!!

  • Summary: I bought this version of the Sims for my GBA before I went on holiday. It was excellent Plane entertainment. I have to admit though I didnt play after that until I got my DS and I decided to pick up were I left off. I've never played any Sims type games before and I found this thoroughly enjoyable. I couldnt put it down after that.

Bustin Out

Charles Beirouti, amazon.co.uk
8 January 2006
  • Summary: This is a rather funny review as i got the game 2 years ago and now have a ds , but anyway heres what i thought at the time; Graphics 3/5. I was quite impressed by the graphics on sims for a GBA. Not amazing but they do the job nicely. Sound/Music 4/5 There are some pretty random but cool and catchy tunes throughout this game and the sound effects are average.
