Summary: My son solved the "cases" fairly quickly and explained that once he did, he didn't have much interest in playing it again. It was inexpensive, so no biggie - but it definitely lacks the long-term fun that he has with some of the other My Sims games (particularly the games that involve more building of structures etc.).
Summary: This game is ok, but there isn't enough action. There is a LOT of story line, which wouldn't be so bad if there was a voice recording. My 9 year old nephew doesn't like to play it very much because of all the reading. Someone would have to be in the room with him to help him read it, but it takes so long for him to sound out some of the bigger words, that he gets discouraged.
My Sims Agents is fun but hard for a 7 and 10 year old.

Summary: My Sims Agents is fun but hard for a 7 and a 10 year old boy. There is a lot of reading required to get clues and the clues are sometimes difficult to figure out. The game only allows one player at a time and my grandsons enjoy games that they can actively play together. My 10 year old grandson said that he would recommend this game to anyone who enjoys reading, mysteries and challenging games.
Summary: "Santa" brought this game to my six year old boy. He wanted this game sooooooooooo badly, however he cannot read yet and you absolutely cannot play this game if you can't read, or can't read well. I was sad for him since he cannot play it now, however my 13 year old girl loves it. It's one of her favorite games! Bottom line...fun game, but I would not purchase it for someone who cannot read well, or who doesn't want to read while playing.
Summary: I DO like this game for young players. But what anyone has failed to mention is that the game has no spoken parts. At least not in English. It's all subtitle reading. And for a 6 year old who hasn't mastered reading yet, it falls on someone else to do the honors. I just wish the trailer had been a little more forthcoming with that. So for pre-readers, not so good. Otherwise it would be very good.
Summary: My 7 year old and I really loved this game. THe characters are cute, the tasks are easy, but still fun. The graphics were great. THe only problem was, the game only lasted 10 hours for me and 12 for my daughter. The cases were cute, but too easy, and there were only maybe 10 major cases (that's a guess), lasting about 5-10 minutes each. The other "dispatch missions" were only where you sent other sims to do it and you would get annoying texts.
Summary: This game was great fun for my 9yo son. The only problem was the disappointment once the case was solved. It happened much more quickly than we had anticipated. As another reviewer said, it was about 3 days.
Summary: I thought this game was going to be fun for kids of all ages but it is not at all. The controls are very simple which can be good in some cases but they dont include the wii motion controls whatsoever. THe graphics of this game are good for the wii, nothing special but what really bummed me was the lack of replay value. Once you are done with the game.
