    So-So

    All of the prior Sims PC games have been a huge hit, and this has been a bigger success than other transitions to PS2 (bustin' out, Sims 2 etc) but there are still many glitches to be found within the game. Firstly, the ... Read Full Review

    Lots time on your hands!? You won't need it with this game.

    The game play is not really what it could be. The sims in the game are pretty cool. The only real problems that i have with this game is that it tends to freeze up alot. Also the wait between the districts or your apartm... Read Full Review

    City livin' for your sims!

    I was really hyped about this one. I wasn't let down by it, but it wasn't sooooo good either. Here's why. Gameplay: Some things were improved over the past few The Sims games. For example, now, you can wake up when yo... Read Full Review

    The Urbz is a rushed and clumsy attempt that leaves the famous Sims name in a bit of a rut.

    Maxis took a risky direction in this game. This direction was a unwise choice that burried the series in a dark hole. The Urbz is a unsettling game with glitches, rusty gameplay and poor effects woven in with little qu... Read Full Review

    OK, but nothing more.

    When I was in the 7th grade, The Sims was my life. So when I heard there was a Sims like game on the PS2 taking place in the city, you might guess what I did a few months later. Yep, I bought it. The Urbs is just like... Read Full Review

    The game fails to live up to "The Sims" name, with shoddy graphics, bad controls, and boring gameplay.

    The makers of The Sims had been on a roll. In the original classic, The Sims, and subsequently in The Sims 2, you create a character that owns a plot of land in a community of other Sims, all of whom are under your cont... Read Full Review

    This game is okay!!

    This game has a lot of ups and downs in my opinion. The biggest downer is the loading times when going to the different districts. That is definitely the biggest complaint that I have heard other players mention. The gra... Read Full Review

    A bold change made by Maxis to the latest addition of the Sims. A very short game and not ADDICTIVE unlike the rest. *_*

    Well it took me only 3 days to complete this game. Then I went on to write the faq which only took me 2 days to complete. You can pretty much guess how long it takes to finish this game. I played Bustin' Out and had a gr... Read Full Review
