MySims kingdom is a whymsical land were everyone is excepted every skill you have ever aquired will likely be needed for gameplay,if your artistic you will not mind the challenges of building houses and decorating them.But you do have to know your way around physics and common sense like by not doing something mean to a character you need a BRAIN for this game not just to be able to move a joystick and press "a-b" on the wii remote.

I read in a magazine this was coming out and I freaked for a second. Then I was flooded with the thoughts of how the old MySims game was OK, but I got really bored after people gave me harder tasks and it was just getting old, like Animal Crossing. I still play Animal Crossing for the DS though, because it's fun. Then I read that it was going to be so much better than MySims, and so much more fun. I lost the magazine so I can't tell you exactly what it said, but it's said to be much more enjoyable. How people wanted and didn't want certain things in the new MySims, and the team took those into consideration. So I think it will be a lot of fun! I love the graphics and the different people in it, but now Medieval!? Isn't that what people want? They don't want a boring one of just LIFE, they want fantasy type stuff! It keeps the imagination up. We already have forests and cities and deserts, but we don't live in medieval times. I think a lot more people are going to like it.
Rated 6 out of 10 by CheeseballLover The Kingdom Isn't As Fun As You Would Expect....
Now let me get one thing strait, this is not really for party peoples that are over 11 or so years of age. This title may be fun at first (After about 30 minutes of dialogue) but it eventually takes a turn for the worst. You will consist of a wand that will give you the ability to build items such as houses, porches, docks, plantery, and so many more. You also need to search for hidden objects that are, well, hidden all over each island you will visit in time. It goes from being as simple as finding a cheery or an apple, to finding 15 electronic devices, 20 cherries, 10 bass or catfish, and a baby bear, just to complete a scroll. A scroll is basicly a new power that you or your wand can now complete. Overall, consider renting this game, before you may possibly be wasting your money when you could by yourself the game you've been waiting for! But, on the otherhand, you may enjoy this title. It may depend on your personality. To check out more of my reviews, look up Rock Band 2 for Nintendo Wii, or Mario Superstar Baseball for Nintendo Gameqube.
Rated 3 out of 10 by xodus More for children
My sims kingdom is an ok game. It just seems to be kind of childish. The game is also much too short. I had it beat in like a week ,just playing an hour or two at a time after work. I had gotten it with the bundle pack and was very excited it came with a sims game.To my disappointment it is not like other sims games. You can interact with things (and also create them), but it does not serve a purpose. Such as making a pizza. You can then take it to a table and place it down. Then you or someone else will eat it, depending on who sits down faster. You can go to sleep but you dont get anything. All you have to do is use a metal detecter and dig up items, use a pick to get items from walls, shake trees for items, etc. Then when you have enough of the required items you get a scroll. These let you open more building supplies. I think this would be a good game for children, not too young though unless they are very intellegent. You have to be able to control the camera and select through a lot of different parts (block, pipes, electrical, decorative).
Rated 10 out of 10 by i-want-destinations Great Game But 1 Annoying Thing...
As a proud costumer of the first My Sims game, I got this one. This game is great game with a lot of things to do and is a fun puzzle and challenge. Putting together different gears and hooking up plumbing and electric is fun and changeling but it's like a very fun 3-D puzzle. The storyline of the game is very good and the controls are great. When you are fishing, it seems like your actually fishing and when your cutting down trees, it seems like you really have an axe in you hand swing at the tree. The only annoying part is "rounding up the animals". It is hard to do and gets frustrating after a while. It's first easy when you start because the animals follow you but then it gets a little harder than even more harder and than it just becomes a pain in the butt. But besides that, it is a great game and if you liked the first My Sims game, than you'll LOVE this one.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Cherie P Great Game!!
This game really surprised me. I expected it to be like My Sims and it does have a resemblance. My Sims Kingdom is much easier to play and a lot of fun. I recommend it to all the Sims fans. It has great replay value and took a little longer to beat than My Sims. I liked the fact that later in the game, you have to figure out the puzzles for yourself. I had a little trouble controlling the camera angle when places objects but you soon get used to it. There are many islands to travel to with many tasks to complete. Sort of a slow start and a lot of directions from your Sims before you start to play. The voices are a little irritating just as MY Sims. It is very addicting once you get started. I will play this game over and over. Hope you will add this to your Sims collection.
Rated 9 out of 10 by LBX Dan Fun game, different from other Sims games
This game is quite good. It's a major improvement from the first My Sims. The beginning is slow, but once you get off the first map it gets better. I like how you solve puzzles and build stuff to help other people, unlike the original Sims games. There are 3 disappointing things about it. One, there are pretty much no glitches or cheats. Second, you can't interact with other sims that well unless you need something from them. Third, you have a bunch of limitations to your appearance in the beginning of the game. Once you progress though, you acquire different clothing and stuff. If you are a Sims fan, I certainly recommend this game, but expect a lot of differences. It's almost nothing like the original Sims games, but the differences aren't necessarily bad.

I think my sims kingdom is a really great game! It fun for a couple days but then it gets a little boring. I am now on the planet or whatever you want to call it called Cuteopia and it doesn't make sense what they want me to do! This game would be a lot better if it had Wi-Fi connection. It would also be better if they let you build your OWN house that you could decorate like in the regular my sims instead of having you run around everywhere where you have no place for your sim to rest until morning when it gets dark outside. They also need more space for you to put building stuff, but i do recommend this game to people who like my sims. It is pretty cool and once you get past some things that don't make much sense i think you will like it!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Pookie Rocks! Entertaining!
I'm a sims fan, but only of certain types of sims games. I don't like the ones where you have tasks but it takes you a month to get two things done because everything is on real time and you have to keep showering and eating and you can never leave the house, like the original sims for the play station....ggrrr so annoying! I loved the Sims-The Urbs for the DS and pretty much all the sims for the DS. I like having tasks and actually being able to accomplish them! Anyways if you like those types of sims games you'll love this one. Its SUPER cute and theres a story line! It's easy to follow and play. There is always something to do. Lots of little challenges and you get to change your hair and your clothes all the time. The only thing annoying is their voices but I guess that's just what Sims does. I haven't finished playing it and I have played it for about 40 hours so it takes a while to flip which is nice. You get to build stuff like houses( the interior and exterior) and fix music equipment, garden plumming & Mills. You also get to fish, Mine & use a detector to dig up stuff. I think the game is worth the money and the time! Other games I like: Animal Crossing, Sims-The Urbs, Mario Kart, Guitar Hero, My Sims & Carnival Mini Golf.
Rated 6 out of 10 by trooper876 good but boring
ok so this game seems really cool when you get it. your like wow! but after a while its boring and the same thing one after another. my sister bought this for herself so i tried it to. first impression: wow i can always play this game! now my sister and i are: nah something else. becuse all you do is build stuff and then move on to the next island. THATS ALL! its not fun after a year. and worst of all there are some glitches in the storyline. theres one glitch that happpend to my sister that made her start all over again. it was at a play island and the ran into bushes and we tried everything to get him out! NOTHIING! i wouldnt recconmend this game for a long term playing time. some good things are that story is long and great (except for glitches)
