Summary: Unlike typical Sims games that are much too "mature" for family play this one is lovely. It is cute and engaging. The tasks aren't overly difficult and even a young school age child could play without much assistance. You do need to know how to read to play. Non violent. We liked so much we bought My Sims Agents too.
Excerpt: "== MySIMS KINGDOM == MySIMS Kingdom is the follow up of the 2007 game entitled MySIMS and its the same sort of game. The game was developed by EA Redwood Shores and published by Electronic Arts. The game is also actually from The Sims franchise but its completely different in many ways. MySIMS Kingdom is an adventure game but has elements of platform and simulation. MySIMS Kingdom is a really good game and only has a couple of downsides. The game ...
Pros: Build lots of objects and buildings and collect lots of items !
Cons: Too simple, weak graphics and a little childish at times .
Summary: This is a very cute game for sims fans. More childlike cartoon caracters than original sims. A nice fairy tale story set around a king and princess with lots of problems to solve and quests to complete. Great for children but not so much for an adult, i found it much to easy and progressed through the game at rapid speed meaning it didnt take long to complete. My 7 year old loves it.
Summary: There's a whole series now for My Sims now, and where it was at first portrayed as a copy of Animal Crossing I find it to be very different. Funny thing in My Sims is that they release a DS-game for every title at the same time, that has a whole different story line then the Wii game. And not only different, not half as good either. My Sims Kingdom is all about being a Wandolier, gathering essences and building things. Let me explain.
Great fun but wouldn't recommend for really young players

Summary: This game may be marketed for children but the youngest enjoying the game in our household is 15! I think the criticisms that I have are the characters' voices which are very annoying, however that is easily solved by turning off the sound on the TV. While it hasn't proved a problem for us due to the player's ages, I think younger children would find all the conversations and instructions hard to read.
Summary: I wasn't sure if I was going to like this at all, but I do like the addictability of the Sims franchise. I wanted something calm to play on my Wii for days where moving isn't really happening. And sometimes I really want not to kill things in video games.. but help them. It's like playing house really, or playing with a massive dollhouse that plays back with you. Who this game **isn't** for: If you're looking for a shoot-em-up or action game.. pass this one by.
Summary: This is a great game, but as there are no instructions its kind of hard trying to do the task being put forward, and is now stuck on certain islands, and can't open up new islands until these tasks are completed.
Summary: Alot of fun. Not easy to find all the items - had to cheat a bit! Much quicker on the loading screens than MySims Wii. If you like designated quests, this is a good game. If you prefer to do your own thing in your own time, then you may prefer MySims. The camera angles when constructing are difficult and unclear at times, you end up walking through the objects you construct, and I found that rather frustrating.
