Excerpt: The MySims franchise started off well with two games that offered unique building-focused and RPG takes on the Animal Crossing formula. So why does this game feel like they just gave up? If you take away the village overworld, all that's left is a lowest-common-denominator collection of minigames. Even with these lowered expectations, the minigames themselves aren't particularly well done or entertaining.
Summary: Parents need to know that this game is safe for its grade-school target audience. Most of the mini-games see players engaging in harmless virtual activities, such as pushing boxes, finding matching ingredients for pizzas, and building bridges with the help of a friend. There is a modicum of violence -- one game has players tossing shurikens, and another sees avatars getting stung by bees -- but the action is, by and large, very family friendly.
Excerpt: MySims, MySims Kingdom, aujourd'hui MySims Party et demain MySims Racing, il est des invasions discrètes mais belle et bien réelles. Les mini Sims, ces petits bonshommes toujours souriants et aimables, évoluant dans des environnements colorés où règnent tous les jours de l'année une ambiance amicale, où chacun aide son prochain et où les oiseaux gazouillent, sont donc de retour.
Excerpt: Similarities to The Sims wore thin in MySims and MySims Kingdom, the first two titles in the cute and colourful spin-off on the PC’s most popular gaming franchise. The new block-headed characters seemed to appeal to a younger audience, with simplistic construction options coming second to even more simple side quests and games.
Excerpt: Name: MySims Party Genre: Party Platform: Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS (Reviewed on Nintendo Wii) The original MySims was created as a simplified version of EA’s popular Sims series for children. Whether or not it was in an effort to get them hooked on the lifestyle simulation early is still up for debate, but at the very least, the game’s success allowed EA to branch the MySims brand out.
Excerpt: By now, you should know whether you like the MySims games or not as we have already had two to date. Well, this year, EA are focussing on party games within this franchise, and on March 6th, you’ll be able to buy MySims Party, featuring over 50 mini-games on the Wii and 40 on the DS. Winning games will enable you to customise your MySims town and character, including making him or her faster, stronger or luckier.
Conclusion: Capcom heeft gegokt en wist dat het veel mensen zou afschrikken met Killer 7. Bij nader inzien hebben ze mij ook afgeschrikt met hun spelletje. Killer 7 is niet origineel en is eigenlijk een gewoon spel, maar dan volgepropt met zieke verwijzingen naar groepsverkrachtingen en gruwelijke moorden.
