Product Details:

The Sims have moved to the city where action is 24/7 and reputation means everything. Sims who live in the City are known as Urbz, and they have a bold new look and attitude. Go to work and be challenged by bosses at locations like the Sushi Bar, Chop Shop, or Bootleg Fireworks, Inc. Success at work brings promotions, access to new power socials, and gear to influence your new lifestyle.

Flaunt your attitude by styling your Urbz using the detailed new character engine; then cross the velvet ropes of an uptown night club or explore the subway to earn new skills and items for your high-rise crib. It's up to you whether your Urbz become big-time players or get lost in the crowd. It's all about reputation as the Urbz are living the dream in a City that never sleeps.
* Reputation (rep): Build your reputation within the world, outside your hood, and through characters you'll hang with. Your goal is to be the biggest player in the city with ultimate access to the hottest places and people.

* Urban Style: An all-new character engine turns your Urbz into hip city dwellers. Take your Urbz out on the town to swanky new hot spots like the Sushi Bar, VIP Club, or even out to get a tattoo at the Tattoo Parlor.

New Gameplay Experience: You now control your Urbz 24/7 in the City that never sleeps. You directly control your Urbz on the job to make sushi or strip down motorcycles, etc., to earn Simoleans and gain access to new social interactions! Motive gameplay is more elegant than ever so that you fulfill your motives quicker and even have limited motives to manage in specific situations. You can bounce into a hip boutique and change your look in-game from rasta to rap, affecting how the world perceives you!

* Lifestyles & Districts: Choose tolive in one of nine districts (neighborhoods), each with its own unique inhabitants and their lifestyles. Depending on which district you pick your gameplay experience and the way you earn your reputation will be different.
Next Generation Graphics, UI, and Audio: Featuring all-new graphics, real time lighting and weather effects, the City comes alive. New audio and music reflects the sounds of the city and the beat of urban lifestyles. The brand new in-game UI modeled after the latest PDAs is named the XAM (pronounced "zam"). The XAM lets you Xchange money & items, Access special areas in the city, and Message your friends to stay connected 24/7; are you XAMmin' yet?
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favorite Sims games ever I had forgot about this game until I found it in my closet the other day. I stayed up all night playing it. I remember playing this when it first came out and loved it. It still is one of the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1 Word: Awesome. You can be goth,skater,artsy,anime,mafia,rocker, or any other group you could ever want. You can get tattoos and piercings, live in two different apartments (Blankwood Towers is the best!) and eventually live in a penthouse. Beat urban villians and enemies, get pets (you can play with them, but all they ever do is urinate in your house and you can clean it up or have a janitor do it ), design a home, make friends and become a local legend, get a job, buy lots of clothes, and anything else you can imagine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love it so much i just wish there was a tutorial its like my favorite game ever and i love it to death, but i was clueless at the beginning and i still don't quite know what I'm doing... i know how to do missions and stuff but I don't know how to gain artistic skill, although i already have a mental skill and a body machine. Other than having to totally figure it out at the beginning, I love it and I think its really fun. P.S. I LOVE the tattoo feature!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from URBZ: A Whole New Sims Experience! The Urbz: Sims in the City is a fun and addictive simulation game under the "Sims" franchise. It brings a whole lot of "different" to the table - for the better that is! The scoop is you start off as a regular Sim and eventually build your way to the top, earning rep, making friends and starting off a life in the big city. You visit various areas in the city in an attempt to become the most popular person around. It's up to you to make your own proper decisions, by either ruining your Sim's many oppurtunities, or fullfilling their goals and dreams. Now, let me start off by explaining the criteria: Controls: The controls are easy to learn, due to it's point-and-click nature. There are some glitches and sticky bits here and there, but definately not too shabby at all. Interface: The interface is good. It doesn't interrupt with the gameplay, and the menus are simple to maneuver. Sound: The sound in this game is a-w-e-s-o-m-e. Pop, rock, urban, underground and R&B tunes make up the game's music, along with some great, traditional simlish words and language. The Black Eyed Peas also contribute to the game's audio. Graphics/Animation: The graphics are crisp and clear, and they ultimately stepped up from the previous games in the Sims franchise. Realism: The Urbz feels uber-realistic and the characters seem very life-like. With so many customization options, a multiplayer campaign and some sick tunes, The Urbz: Sims in the City is THE game to get.
