The My Sims is a video game of the Wii-format that is a product of EA (Electronic Arts) Games. It is based on the popular simulation game “The Sims”. This Wii life simulation video game can only be played using the single-player mode of game.

As a Sims character in the game My Sims, the mission of the player is to resurrect a decrepit abandoned town by luring back residents and businesses into this run-down neighborhood. The player needs to increase the town’s population little by little until the entire town looks progressive and occupied again. The player needs to rely on Nunchuck controls to do direct-movement game play in the Wii-format version. The Wii Remote is reserved for object movement and building only. Those used to earlier Sims video games may remark that the My Sims characters look like Japanese anime characters and not like the earlier Sims characters in other titles.

Review Summary

MySims is a fun game mostly for youngsters. The story of MySims is that you come across a vacant abandoned town that needs to be rebuilt. The town’s Mayor helps you build your house and a workshop and then you are free to do what you want. You can discuss with random people, build things in your workshop, and even build houses for new residents. Together with building houses you’ll be doing interior designing items like chairs, beds, ovens, etc. Whenever somebody moves in you build them a house, ask them what they want to be built, and then go build it in your workshop. Building things in your workshop will keep the fun going. Though it is simple, the visuals are good. The game is sunny with a playful mood. The cartoons presentation in the game stand for the silly and weird happenings in and make The Sims seem more reasonable. Gender is not important. You don’t have to choose your sim's sex, and you can freely mix male and female hairstyles, eyes, mouths, and outfits. Construction is simple, based on a diverse collection of boxes and bric-a-brac that you can drag about using the Wii Remote. When you pick up a piece of flair for your structure, blue dots will appear to show where you can actually place them. There are several different-themed sets of building blocks that you can choose from and you will also earn blueprints for more ornate furniture. MySims is a weird but fun game.
