Excerpt: After playing My Sims Agents on the Wii I wanted to go back and see some of the earlier My Sims games on that machine. My Sims Kingdom was at the top of my list. So I found a copy of the game on Amazon, and have been playing it. Character customization is one of the fun aspects of this game. My Sims Kingdom has the player earning a magic wand, and using it to fix up the kingdom. The kingdom has slowly been falling apart.
Excerpt: MySims was an interesting spin on a traditional Sims game, in fact it had little in common with that series, with the focus being on building things as opposed to looking after virtual people. MySims Kingdom is a bigger and better game than the original and even though the building of things remains as the ultimate goal, for better and for worse, quite a lot has changed.
Summary: MySims Kingdom sets you on a story of adventure, discovery and exploration to help King Roland and his subjects revitalize the Kingdom, and puts the creativity in your hands to make the Kingdom something to behold!
Excerpt: A charming ‘chill out’ game best suited to younger players. A good candidate for the Christmas stocking.
Pros: Minimal learning curve and simple gameplay are ideal for little Wii-bots; memorable characters; plenty of opportunity to explore and get creative.
Cons: Manipulating certain objects can be problematic for the kids; adult gamers will soon tire of the simple, repetitive gameplay – particularly if they are expecting the depth and content of a typical Sims title.
Excerpt: Erfolgreiche Spiele werden nicht selten mit einem Nachfolger bedacht. So auch im Falle vom Nintendo-exklusiven MySims. Der neue Teil bekam den Untertitel Kingdom verpasst und weicht stellenweise deutlich von seinem Vorgänger ab. Ob sich EA mit den Änderungen einen Gefallen getan oder sich selbst eine Grube gegraben hat, erfahrt ihr im ausführlichen Test.
