    This game truely grows on you. READ THE REVIEW PLEASE.

    The Urbz: Sims in the City was definitely better than I thought. The game is pretty slow, and boring at first, but then it gets really fun at the end. There is so much to do, and the game is so long, and hard. ... Read Full Review

    Is Sims Lite

    If you are a Sims fan, in search for something lite and more tongue - in- cheek than the average sim game, this is for you, or if you are new to the series, this can be a very good start point. The games is highly simpli... Read Full Review

    For any Sim fans or minor fans, the Urbz is a great solid game.

    What seemed so long ago when all the world of people who owned the PC version of the Sims waved it in console gamers faces, it all changes when Maxis and EA made Urbz. Plot: Urbz is basically is the second console ver... Read Full Review

    the change from a goal bar to a reputayion is somthing the ps2 can't handle

    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 contr... Read Full Review

    A very fun idea, just not quite making it in application.

    The Urbz is a game that takes the blockbuster hit "The Sims" and puts you in control of one Sim trying to make himself/herself a smash hit in the big city. The object of the game is to get as much "Rep" as possible throu... Read Full Review

    Urbz is superficial, time consuming, with strereotypical ideals on what certain cultures are like. Just like Highschool.

    The Urbz is superficial. You have to make friends with other "Urbz" that wear the same clothes as you. *Coughs* (Highschool).. Its pretty shallow when you get down to it. You can't socialize with certain sims if you aren... Read Full Review

    The Urbz is The Sims game for console gamers...

    When EA Games were making The Urbz: Sims In The City, they wanted it to appeal to console gamers, offering objectives, revenge missions and rewards. But EA didn't really implement this very well. You can just ignore the ... Read Full Review

    No. Just no.

    If you find this game fun, you need to get yourself some binoculars, a chair, and a window for some serious bird watching. There is no reason to pick up this game. It is stupid, irritating, boring, and crappy in every po... Read Full Review
