Summary: Reviewed for Big Boss Games by: CRR The first two titles in the series by EA Games are The Sims and The Sims Bustin' Out, but make way for number three, The Urbz: Sims in the city. In The Urbz, you guide your Sim through life in nine very diverse culturally different districts, where you have to walk the walk and talk the talk. As in its two predecesors, in The Urbz, you have goals to achieve, bills to pay and promotions to obtain.
Summary: I LOVE this game! Being a fan of the sims and the sims 2, I borrowed Urbz from a friend. I fell in-love wih it!!! I especially love the music!!! (the punk station roxx!) It has such diversity and selection in cultures. From punk to prep to gangsta, you've got it all in this totally wicked-awsome game! If you'd like more controllabilty for your sims, then this is the game for you! And your sim is much more customised!
Summary: This game was not fun, and overpriced (I paid $17.99 for a used copy). I wish I could get my money back. I'm straight outta the hood, and thought this game was vulgar at best, and not representaive of 29th and Crenshaw, where I stay. Don't buy this one!
Summary: My children found this game quite a disappointment. They claim it was "kinda boring, and not entertaining" in comparison to the other Sims games which they love. They recommend the "Sims Unleashed Expansion Pack" and Sims versions one and two.
Summary: I bought this game in hopes that it would be similar to the pc version of The Sims. But it is a bit more complicated than that. I don't like the controls, they're confusing and it takes a while to get used to them, and getting the right view is nearly impossible. I personally don't reccomend this game for other The Sims fans. You don't really get to customize your character like the other games either, which is disapointing.
Summary: If you want to play a good sims game then go buy The sims bustin' out. Do not even bother to rent the urbz it is awful. I thought this game would be similar to the sims 1 and the sims bustin out. Instead they tried to be "hip" and ruined the whole game. The best thing about the game is that it is really short and the black eyed peas did the music. The loading time is very long,in fact I bet if you added up all the loading time, its longer than the actual gameplay.
Summary: I bought this game, unfortunately, when it first came out and was priced $50.00. That was definitely a mistake. I loved the game at first - it's really fun. But it took me about 2 days to complete the game. It is way too easy to make money and build up reputation and stuff, and there's not enough to do in the game.
