Urbz: Sims in the City

The Armchair Empire
7 April 2005
  • Conclusion: environment and the lower screen handling the menus and dialogue choices. The stylus sees limited use with the menu choices, dialogue options and a few mini-games but it hardly seems vital to the game. If you feel even the slightest burnout from the social “let’s make friends” aspect of the Sims, Urbz will do nothing to curb your ambivalence.

  • Excerpt: The Sims may have been a PC phenomenon, but The Sims Bustin’ Out just didn’t work on the consoles. Part of it is a difference in gaming style, for lack of a better term – console games – even the truly odd ones – are pretty goal-based and organized, as opposed to the free-for-all play of most PC successes. After all, the quintessential PC experiences are sim games like, well, The Sims, and the massive RPGs that date all the way back to Myst.

  • Excerpt: The name isn’t the only thing that’s changed. The Sims grew up – or down, as the case may be – and got hip. If the fun of the original Sims lies in recreating the challenges of daily adult life, the Urbz focuses on life as presented through your favorite MTV style show or trendy magazine. The Sims is reality TV; the Urbz is the Style channel.

  • Summary: EA's Sims move from leafy suburbia into the big bad city, but how will the little computer people cope in the urban jungle?

The Urbz: Sims In The City

  • Excerpt: "The Urbz on The Sims pelisarjasta irtaantunut, yksinkertaistetumpi versio, jossa pelaajan tarkoituksena on kerätä mainetta kaupungilla ja sen kautta nousta supersuosituksi korttelissa jos toisessakin. Valitettavasti kuitenkin pelin suurimmat puutteet löytyvät sen teknisestä toteutuksesta, sekä pelin yleisestä tylsästä pelattavuudesta, joka on yksinkertaistamisen ansiota.
  • Pros: + The Sims -pelien rippeet, + Grafiikka ja äänet
  • Cons: - Tylsä, - Tekninen toteutus jättää paljon toivomisen varaa

  • Excerpt: Den urbane livsstil er finurlig – det handler om status, smarte outfits og fest i gaderne, hvis man vil være populær i visse kredse. Det har The Urbz rent faktisk forstået at indkapsle i et spil, der er et spin-off fra det oprindelige Sims-koncept. Afhængig af hvad man forventer af sådan et spin-off, kan man argumentere, hvorvidt The Urbz er et godt spil – og hvad skal det så betyde?
