Test MySims Racing

Generation NT
12 January 2010
  • Conclusion: Si ce MySims comptait tout miser sur l'aspect course, il se peut que ses espoirs soient déçus. Impossible pour lui d'atteindre la qualité et le savoir faire d'un titre comme Mario Kart. La tentative partait pourtant sur de bonnes bases, mais le rendu final se montre nettement moins passionnant que l'aventure offerte par la bande de Mario. Les habitués du genre ne pourront apprécier ce titre, les challenges n'étant pas au rendez-vous.
  • Pros: Titre accessible aux plus jeunes
  • Cons: Manque de challenges, IA insignifiante des adversaires, Défis redondants, Jeu peu passionnant dans son ensemble

5 January 2010
  • Excerpt: The MySims characters are making another game debut, this time kart racing. Is it just another Mario Kart knockoff, or does this game offer something new? The Sims characters from the life-simulation computer game are back in yet another of the growing kid-friendly line of video games. This time, they've taken up the racing challenge in MySims Racing .

MySims Racing Review

Cheat Code Central
28 December 2009
  • Conclusion: Sadly, even with the nice additions of a story mode and a fairly robust cart customization aspect, the gameplay itself is the biggest deterrent of MySims Racing. It's not that the game can't be fun at times, but it definitely gets tedious quickly, and with the excellent Mario Kart Wii already available on the same system, it gets hard to recommend picking this one up.

All-ages kart racer is fun on the Wii, better on the DS.

Common Sense Media

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this kart racing game is one of several games released by Electronic Arts over the last couple years under the MySims license, a brand related to the more mature Sims games but with content suitable for children. Save a few standard kart racing shenanigans, there's nothing here that's inappropriate for children.

My Sims Racing

Family Friendly Gaming
22 December 2009
  • Excerpt: My Sims Racing is a cute little kart racing video game on the Wii. Take the My Sims franchise (the cute family friendly branch of the Sims family), and mix it with the kart racing genre for a fun little mix. Players start out with character creation, then vehicle creation. A tutorial mode introduces the player to the various skills contained in My Sims Racing. Like the Mario Kart games there are special attacks that can be picked up on the race tracks.

MySims Racing

Digital Chumps
2 July 2009
  • Conclusion: MySims Racing is everything a seasoned gamer would have expected it to be: a generic racer that pulls elements from several different preexisting racers. However, if you expected the game to suffer in quality, think again, as MySims racing does provide a solid racing experience with enough customization to make it feel somewhat unique.

MySims Racing

GameTrailers
24 June 2009
  • Excerpt: While the Wii needs another kart racer game like the Xbox 360 needs another futuristic shooter, MySims Racing at least makes some sense. The series' pint-sized characters, whimsical art style, and reputation for customization fit the genre like a Mario brother's white glove. True to form, MySims Racing distinguishes itself with the amount of tweaking you can do to your vehicle, whether it's a dune buggy, minivan, or a station wagon.

MySims Racing Review

GameSpot
23 June 2009
  • Excerpt: With each game they star in, the cheerful little square people of the MySims world take another step away from their simulation roots. Being cute, mischievous mascotlike figures, it was only a matter of time before they ended up in karts armed with silly weapons. Their first foray into racing isn't going to knock Mario off his kart-racing throne, but MySims Racing is a solid kart racer with a few nice tricks that breathe life into a stale genre.
  • Pros: Fun customization options, Story mode mixes up the standard kart-racing formula
  • Cons: No online multiplayer, Sense of speed is lacking when you're not boosting
