Product Details:

In The Sims Bustin' Out, the Sims are getting out of the house to pursue the wild life around town. The Sims Bustin' Out includes 16 new locations such as Club Rubb and the Love Shack where Sims can play, work and meet a wide variety of new characters. Work through multiple, non-linear quests or play the game with a friend either cooperatively or competitively. With 12 new career paths to climb, new objects to collect, and bold new social interactions, The Sims Bustin' Out is twice as big and twice as edgy as the original.

* Gameplay Experience: Create a character and play through over a dozen all-new unlockable levels. Choose from several new careers including Gangster, Athlete, Mad Scientist, and Fashion Victim that will take you through multiple ways to play and win the game. Go back and forth through different careers and levels to unlock objects. Additionally, play two-player throughout the entire game with or against your friends.

* Get Out of the House and Explore New Locations: Travel seamlessly around town in your new scooter or car to play, work, and socialize. Visit, explore, or live in console exclusive, never been seen, new locations such as Club Rubb, the hip dance venue, or venture to the Love Shack. Additional locations include Shiny Things Lab, Goth Manor, and Toane's Gym.

* Unlock 100 New Objects and Social Moves: Console exclusive objects include the Laser Light Show, DJ Booth, Climbing Wall, and High Dive. Unlock hidden, appearance-enhancing accessories, clothes, jewelry, and hairstyles. French Kiss, Towel Snap, and Moon Walk are just a few of the new social moves.

* Meet New Characters: Watch out for the wacky group of characters featured in this next generation of console Sims such as Bing Bling, the party animal, and Goldie Toane, the workout queen, who also double as key sources to unlocking locations, objects, social interactions, and winning the game.

* Create-a-Sim: Personality matters! Revamp your Sims with new hip clothes and give your Sims personality traits that impact and affect gameplay experience. An outgoing or playful Sim is destined to show of smooth moves on the dance floor and an active Sim will conquer the climbing wall like no other.

* Next Generation Graphics, UI, and Audio: Doubling the overall look and feel of the game, enjoy sleek new graphics, seamless UI, shadows in real-time, new voices, sound effects, and all-new original music.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Get Sims 2 This game is good, but it's kinda like Sims 1 with better graphics. You cannot move your Sim directly, but some people don't mind that. Busting Out mode is almost a bit similar to Get A Life mode in Sims 1. If I were you, I'd get Sims 2. It's graphics are great, and you could move your Sim with the analog stick, or if your used to Sims 1 controls, it lets you control them like that too. In Sims 2, you could play Freeplay and Story mode in 2 player split screen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good SIMS This game is good, and a great buy. I totally recommend it, and I also recommend the Playstation 2 version.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Game, But Repetitive The Sims Bustin' Out is a good game. It is clearly a big step forward from the previous "The Sims" on Gamecube. The graphics are much more clear and realistic. The Sims don't look as muddy and deformed as they did in the last one. The customization options are vast and diverse. The clothing and hair options are much better, and so are the building options and objects. The music is so catchy and addictive; it really motivates you. There are some new social interactions in the game, and they are hilarious. The ability to visit different locations is great, and it gives you a sense of freedom, but the fact that you can't explore the neighbourhood in Free Play is disappointing. The controls and camera can also be problematic at times. On top of that, the game becomes very repetitive after awhile and can become boring easily as you are constantly looking after your Sims and making sure their needs don't deplete. The availabilty of cheats make the experience more enjoyable though, because it is insanely difficult to earn money and get promoted when it comes to jobs. Overall, The Sims Bustin' Out is at least worth renting or checking out if you are a Sims fan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very Realistic I got this game sand said to my self it is almost real. I like it because you start living with your mom and than go to the move in with somebody else. I liked how you get a job and then you get paid and can build a huge house. I didn't like how some jobs when you went to work used up most of the day. I remember that sometimes you would get awoken by a telophone or something like that. You can take down your partners house and build you house bigger based on there space. The things I don't like are the people you move in with never clean up after them self. You always would be cleaning up after somebody else. And I don't know how to get your own land but I would recomend living with somebody else because when you move out you get a ton of money from that person for building there house up. So it is very relistic and I would tottally recomend this game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A decent game. Sims bustin' out is a decent game.It's hard to learn the controls at first,but you will get better as you play.Making money is hard unless you get alote of promotions.It is also hard to keep your motives up.The fun part is buying stuff for your house.You can also get new cars,move out of your house,and even get maried.You can move your character around,but sometimes he will move himself.To stop him from moving himself,pause the game,go to options,and turn it off.You can also change other things like the rumble feature.Malcome will steal your stuff when you move into a new house.He also takes almost all of your stuff if you do not pay the bill so make sure you pay it.There is another bad thing about this game,it takes alote of memory card space and you can't play without a memory card.There are many different jobs and promotions.So if you like the sims then this is the right game for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The do mean a lot like us Sims Bustin Out is hard at first when you have to get promoted and keep yourself doing things so you won't get on the little red things.Two things I love about Sims is that they make everything seem real and the things we do they are doing them too.Sims make a lot of sense to me but maybe not to other people.It's kind of hard to get to the part where you have your own house and you have to have ten promotions just to get to have your own house.I like playing free play because you can just add kids on to your family. Just play sims and understand that they mean a lot like us. and just keep sims alive because I need the collection and they are humans just like us.
