DisadvantagesPoor sound, having to satifsy motives at stupid times

I give a damn about my bad reputation.

AdvantagesLong, good minigames and missions.

Disadvantagesgraphics could be better

"*Urbz: Sims in the City* I recently bought the urbz: sims in the city, since I loved all the sims games on the PC and the DS sims 2 game, and the Urbz wasn't a letdown. It is similar to other sims games in several ways: you control the sim, have to keep their mood meters up by making them sleep and eat etc., you can interact with other sims to make friends, and you can earn skill points to allow you to progress in your 'jobs'. However this game ..." Read review

Are you a Streetie or an Artsie?

AdvantagesLeaves you hooked

DisadvantagesTakes time to play

"...bought "The Urbz, Sims in the City" at Electronics Boutique for £24.99 for my Nintendo DS. At the beginning of the game you get asked a number of questions that determine which group you belong to in the game. You can be a Richie, an Artsie, a Streetie or a Nerdie. The characters you become friends with during the game also determine your status throughout the game. In order to live you need to earn money, which is where the mini games come in. ..." Read review

Urbz is a 'Winner'

AdvantagesLong gameplay

DisadvantagesVery similar to 'The Sims' GBA

"If you've played on the 'Gameboy Advance' version of the Sims you know what you are letting yourself in for, but be assured this is much better! The DS version has the same gameplay as it's Gameboy predecessor and references to the original game are made throughout as well as some character appearances. (remember Dusty Hogg?) Howevger there is much more to do, more places to visit and more people to annoy! You can buy items for your house as in ..." Read review

Making It In The City

AdvantagesGood game play and a wide range of jobs.

Disadvantagesthe graphics are a bit scrachey.

"The gameplay is good with real life trobles. There are many ways to interact. There are some chalanging parts to the game, that only makes it better. As in the other sims games you need to do all the usual things such as use the bathroom take a shower and much much more. This game passes the time . It is a quite long game but all as all role-playing can be. It works well with the touch screen of the nintendo ds. Even though the graphics arn't as good ..." Read review

Urbz: sims in the city

Advantagesgreat mini games

DisadvantagesTakes too long

"...to do it. To get into the club just remember bucket the once and then it lets you in all the time. When you start try and get 100 points with everyone except daddy bigbucks just so then your popularity goes sky high and you get all the zizzles beads plus extra. Also try and keep all the rubbish piles, 3 eyed frogs because at the end you'll need them to get top nerd and to enter the spelling contest later. I can't wait for the next one to come ..."
