Sims have moved to the City where action is 24/7 and reputation means everything. Sims who live in the City are known as Urbz, and they have a bold new look and attitude. Go to work and be challenged by bosses at locations like the Chop Shop, Piercing Parlor, or Bootleg Fireworks, Inc. Success at work brings promotions, access to new power socials and gear to influence your new lifestyle. Flaunt your attitude by styling your Urbz using the detailed new character engine. It's up to you whether your Urbz become big-time players on the street or are lost in the crowd.
The Nintendo DS version also has a brand new city adventure. Welcome to Miniopolis, a bustling city poised on the brink of ruin. Daddy BigBucks has a devious plot to take over the city. To thwart his evil schemes you have to get access throughout the city by building up your reputation to become the biggest "player" in the city.
