URBZ: Sims in the City
SUPER FUN OMG
This game is very entertaining and fun! It is very upbeat and lifelike-Very realistic. It lets you make a Sim (Person) Boy or girl, and gives you a premade apartment with a prebought Refridgerator, Boombox, Shower, Sofa, and dumpster. I like the fact that you can use the dumpster to dumpster dive for cool things-Sometimes you won't find anything and need a shower though. The bad thing about the prebought furniture is that there is no toilet, TV, kitchen table, or anything else that is needed/wanted. There are many different venues. There is Neon East, Central Station, Cozmo Street, Kicktail Park, The Foundary, Skyline Beach, Diamond Heights, Gasoline Row, and South Side Bridge. Each has its unique style, but you have to buy clothes that fit each style when you go there to maintain your rep. There is this thing called a powersocila that when used on another Sim, makes them like you way more than a standard social and raises your rep way high! I would save some of your powersocials due to villains! When a villian enters a district, they attack your sim and other sims because they are frusturated at something-There is no way to escape them unless you have the powersocial that is needed to rid of the villian. There are 3 different villians in the game! But the good news about that is that Darius (Basiacally the sim with THE highest rep and is famous and helps you all along the game giving you powersocials, hints, etc) will grant you the keys to his Penthouse which comes with a pet monkey and a moneymaking machine! Then there are the annoying basic needs you have to take care of (Hygiene, bladder, fun, hunger, and rest). The bad thing is that you can't hve kids. DESPITE WHAT OTHERS SAY, THE GAME ONLY FREEZES DEPENDING ON THE CLEANLINESS OF THE GAME. The game may freeze if it has scratches, fingerprints, dust, etc,because my copy has NOT frozen, so I wouldn't worry about that. I strongly suggest Sim lovers and people who don't know this game to try this game!
Best of The Sims!
This game is the best of the sims games. It is the most realistic, aside from the rep things, but it actually puts you in an apartment after high school, and instead of the random pause menu buy mode as seen in other titles, you must go to the store to actually buy your things which make it very realistic. It has cool graphics and an amazing soundtrack, and lots of replay value. Unfortunately, the PS2 and Xbox versions have a horrible lag at random times that will make it hard to play, and the Xbox version suffers from a bug that resets the console at random. However it is still amazing, and i recommend this. Check out my recommendations to see the sequel to the game (late night), and the other games like it.
Pokes fun at early 00 pop culture.
Good for laughs.Definatley rips on sterotyped subcultures of the early 2000's.Great game for people with a god complex.(kidding)
I LOVE THIS GAME SOOO MUCH !
This is the best game that Sims has made . It has a great storyline , really good graphics , you can earn cool pets , and the lasting appeal is outstanding . I Will ALWAYS LOVE THIS GAME !
Love it, Dont read other reviews.
Ok, First, Its fun and cool. Just sometimes the sound makes you get a head ake. But its fun. It freezes ONLY on PS2 slim 70011 Model i think And all fats. Other then that, I NEVER had a freeze and i use codebreaker with this game. I still play it after 3 years. It would be cool to be rereleased over PSN on the HD classics line and have network play! ITS ALSO 2 PLAYER! And its more free then sims 2 and bustin out. Also, Be warned, You Can NOT have kids.
So, I had played this game at a friend's house, and thought it was kind of fun, and I decided to get my own copy. I ordered it pre-owned and it came a few days later, but when I went to play it, the disk didn't work! It kept saying it was unreadable...
So much for buying used, I hope I can return it, because it came to me like that... Pre-owned guarantee my butt.
I don't think I will use gamestop online anymore. :/
Fun game for the first few days, then you realize how bad the graphics are, and how un-realistic they are. I wouldn't recommend to many people. I own it and almost NEVER play it
Fun, but save A LOT!!!
Ok, this game is so fun, especially at first and a couple months after the last time you played. The only thing is that this game will freeze. I will guarantee that it will freeze if you play it for an hour or 2, so save it every time you achieve something important! Just now, I got invited into the party, beat the villain, got a bunch of new relationships and social moves, earned a lot of money, changed clothes, unlocked the next stage, became friends with new people, and got into the party there, and then... it froze! I was so mad that I was about ready to scream and throw my PS2 out of my window!Pros: *Fun*ChallengingCons:*Freezes constintly*Take's forever to save and load*A bit too hard later in the game*Freezes*Can get boring if you're stuck somewhere*FREEZES!!!So just remember, save all the time!
This game is ok but a few things could have been worked on. Like I wish you could just control where your sims go with your anolog stick. The realism isn't as good as the sims 2 was. I liked the game for a while but then I got tired of it then I stopped playing it. But it was fun when I played it. I liked that you actually did the job you had. I liked doing the sushi the most. All i'm saying is that it wasn't the best multiple of the sims 2 series. I also liked how they go to sleep like where you go to sleep and when your bar is all filled up you wake up. Because it's hard on the other sims to sleep unless your doing the power nap choice but even that doesn't fill up your bar. But the game was fun and if you think you would buy it i'd reccomend it to you. On a scale of 1 to 10 I think this game gets a 7.5.
city sims rock
This is a very fun game. It is similar to the Sims games but it takes place in the city (the screenshot looked like the Brooklyn Bridge was in it). You get to make a character, male or female, and roam the different areas of the city. And the fun and not so fun part about different areas of the city is that you have to change your outfit when you enter a new town. If you don't, the folk won't like you and you won't be able to get into the special club. Speaking of which there is a club room in every town. Now the other thing you may find annoying is that you have to keep a high social status to move on. Which means, you have to talk and invite people into your "crew". Your crew is basically all of the people you talked to who gained friend status. It is okay if you don't invite them to your crew, but when you later decide to throw a party, nobody will show up (I think I am not positively sure because I don't really throw parties because my apartment sucks). And of course there are your basic needs consisting of using the bathroom, hunger, energy, fun, social, comfort, and environment. Just like in real life! I hope all you Sims lovers get and enjoy this game!
