Easily becomes tedious
4 March 2014
Summary: Gave me good memories of when I was like 7 haha. Then I got bored of it pretty quickly. Well, it was cheap. Very different from typical sims game, but in a good way (before it becomes tedious)
Summary: Its fun but not as fun as Sims bustin out there are some things I like, like the apartments,different locations,clothing stuff like that but I got 4 of the sim games this being one of them and my favorite was the Sims bustin out.
Summary: First I should mention that I'm writing this review for the PS2/Gamecube versions of this game. The DS version is a whole different game. The first time I played this game, I was expecting a game like every other Sims game. I was disappointed to see it was almost totally different, so I got frustrated and decided not to play it. So, don't buy this if you want another typical Sims game. If you're willing to try something new, give it a shot.
Summary: This game is ok but a few things could have been worked on. Like I wish you could just control where your sims go with your anolog stick. The realism isn't as good as the sims 2 was. I liked the game for a while but then I got tired of it then I stopped playing it. But it was fun when I played it. I liked that you actually did the job you had. I liked doing the sushi the most. All i'm saying is that it wasn't the best multiple of the sims 2 series.
Summary: Okay, I'll admit, the graphics and the ability to actually work your jobs and change clothes and all are good, but over all, I'm disappointed in this game. Once I got to the point where I was at the penthouse, the game began to collect dust. The replay urge is SO not there. I actually want to sell it and get something else. Busting Out was much better. However, I hear there another one coming out towards the end of the year about Sims Night Life.
Summary: After devoting a couple of days to The Urbz, I think I can finally write a decent review on how I feel about it. This game is alright...playable...but doesn't fall anywhere near my category of favorite games of all time (an honor which both the Original Sims and Sims 2 have achieved). And with The Urbz I was especially careful not to get sucked into all of the hype so I know it wasn't the hype that killed it for me.
Excerpt: "The Urbz: Sims in the city is the alternate console version of the original version of the Sims on the PC which is based on roughly the same premise. This is a review for the Playstation 2 version of the game. You have the option to create a ‘Sim’ person who then moves into a new neighbourhood, here you have the option to explore the area and get to know people and make friends. The deviating factor from the PC version is that in the Urbz version ...
Pros: Small parts of the game mirror the fun that can be had with the original
Cons: Little longevity, nowhere near the quality of the original
