The Urbz: Sims in the City Review


EAâ??s attempt to merge stronger game mechanics with The Sims gameplay was greeted with a muted reception from both the press and gamers alike when it was released last year, however that hasnâ??t deterred the mighty publisher from bringing out the...

The URBZ: Sims in the City Review


Electronic Arts takes their urban Sims title to the Nintendo DS... it's not half bad.

The Urbz is a deep life simulation that's full of so many things to do you'll likely get lost for hours. However, as a DS launch title it's pretty pathetic, as it doesn't make good use of the system's abilities. That's not necessarily a strike...

The Urbz: Sims in the City


The origin of today's batch of "real-life simulators" predates The Sims by about twenty years with a title called Little Computer People for the Commodore 64 and Apple II, which allowed you to guide a self-motivated character living in his own home. He...

The Urbz: Sims in the City- NDS


Last year saw the release of The Urbz: Sims in the City for PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube and GBA. The game was a console spin-off of The Sims where a more zany approach had been taken with a greater emphasis on style, reputation and fitting in with...

Make no mistake The Urbz: Sims in the City is a good game but whether or not it's a good choice to pick up for your Nintendo DS will depend on a few things. If you own the GBA version of the game it's not worth it for the few extras on offer here. If...

I know I've supposed to keep editorial rants out of my reviews since it tends to make people think that I'm full of bias and bile but sometimes I just can't help it

The Urbz: Sims in the City


This text refers to the PlayStation 2 version of this title.The top computer game franchise continues to branch out onto other platforms, as it explores a new lifestyle in this spin-off title. Like the 2003 console versions of The Sims and The Sims Bustin

The Urbz: Sims in the City


The Sims. Yes, it's possibly one of the most famous games around, and a very popular one around the younger generation. It seems people find 'living' appealing. EA, being the lovely people they are, are treating us to a dose of 'living' on the Nintendo...

EA made a good attempt here. Although not making great use of the DS' Touch Screen, it's not a bad game in itself, and true Simulation fans will be right at home. At times it feels like it's a little bit cheesy to play, but overall it's a nice little...

Consumer review (

Ambitious and stylish, but not complete.


Asphalt : Urban GT goes all out, with loads of cars and tracks, many game modes, a full "evolution" mode and tuning and tweaking. Quite a lot for an early DS title. And the graphics are great as well! So is it a perfect racing-sim for DS? Not quite,...

Loads of content and lasts really long. Tuning is fun. Nice graphics

Stale control. Some irritating faults. Could've had some more work
