In this life type sim you see yourself as an essence user, collecting essences to help rebuild a run down town. Its a pretty fun game while it lasts, plenty of shops and Sims to interact with, though they will always want you making things for them.
The visuals are nice and suit the game well. The only problems are that you are required to keep collecting essences, and the LONG load times, especially when you go into the hotel when you have a decent rated town.
Ok - yes I agree the loading times are quite slow but the actual game is brilliant. I am addicted to it. As for those who say you cannot have variety and different charaters, you are wrong. You have to play for a while to unlock the different areas, and once you have built things for the different sims, you can then change outfits, hair, makeup etc, you need the beauty/hair salon and the costume shop before you can do this tho obviously. I constantly fight with my neice to get to play on my world, we are racing to see who gets a 5 star town first - unfortunately she is in the lead with 4! I am on 3 stars so far......plenty more excitement to unlock!
This game really is slow. Every time you move to a new area or go to design something it loads up - slowly. It has nice graphics, but little or no storyline and I expected to be able to build entirely individual houses and customise the appearance of the characters but you can't - you have to choose from what is available, which in my opinion, isn't enough variety. There is also a lot of repetition in gameplay, where you search for new essences then build things out of fruit. by It's a nice idea but it doesn't really work.
This is very addictive and fun to play, though not a typical sims game. It looks like a childrens game, but the controls are quite complicated so not really a great game for children below 7. Your in a run down town, and your the architect who looks for new residents and builds houses and shops and all those things a community needs, the more you do the more areas you unlock.
Very fun while it last but once you have filled the town and unlocked all the areas which doesn't take very long, what next..? Bit repetitive to play again.
The best sims game to play on the Wii is the Sims Castaway.
I love sims 2 on the PC and on the PSP so i chose this game with my Wii bundle.
All i can say is that i was very disappointed.
It lacks a story, infact i would go as far as saying i think it lacks any real point at all. The game is very, very simple and gets very tedious very quickly.
However, my younger cousins love it. I think it is great for kids, but as far as adults and teenagers go, it isn't great.
Needless to say, i have took it back.
My advice: one for the kids, but kids only.
