Summary: It is a very fun game, I was so addicted to it that I would find mysalef playing from 7 p.m. to 12 a.m. Yeah, this is how addicting it is at first, but after a ahile, you just realize that there isn't really nothing to this game other than promotions, getting jobs, getting Malcolm's mansion. I'm not sure what his name is but I think it is Malcolm.
Summary: After playing the original sims for pc for around 2 years, I bought this game expecting hours of fun gameplay like I had from the original pc version. I was wrong. The game is alright, but it's incredible hard to keep all of your motives up whilst managing a job and completing tasks. In free play mode it is very difficult to keep their motives green because you hardly have enought money to buy the necessities.
Summary: First of all I want to say that in the game you can only "Bust Out" in the Get A Life mode so far that I have noticed. Another thing that I noticed is that when you can "Bust Out" you can only go to people`s houses not go downtown and shop like in the computer versions.There is only one other negative thing that i have to say about the sims,you only have three lots in your neighborhood unlike the other one where you can have many. Now for the positive side of the game.
Summary: I am a diehard Sims fan and I love all of the Sims; on PC. This one, I only like. My expectations were very high. I found that even though the hunger to play this game over and over isn't there, I do have fun when I do play it now that my expectations are more realistic. I basically expected the same Sims from the PC. This is a different game. You have to come up with a different reason to play.
Ehhh.. Ok game... Online mode is definitely flawed.

Summary: The Sims Bustin' Out is extremely similar to last year's The Sims. This new one adds a bit more features for a better playing experience. However, the online mode brings the game down a notch. The game is fully 3-D, unlike the PC's version. The graphics are small, and you cannot zoom into your sim. The closest you can zoom is still pretty far away. The result? Everything looks tiny.
