After playing and not liking Sims: Busting Out, it was with reservation that I played Urbz: Sims in the City. This game is all about Reputation, the better your reputation, the more you can access in the game. There are 9 districts, each with its own style where your “Urb” can get a job, socialize and shop. You must juggle several personal traits, cleanliness, entertainment, sleep, hunger, and bathroom, the level of these traits will decide how well your Urb will interact with others and maintain an Urbz all-important Reputation.
I found that doors pose a problem should two Urbz exit/enter from the opposite side of the same door they can become stuck waiting for the other to move, and the game is also hampered by long loading times when changing districts, style or buying new clothing.
In all, I found this game more addictive than its' parent game Sims. Urbz brings the game play to a more personal -Urbz-wise- level, and with the number of districts available the game caters to a lot of tastes, from the ritzy models of Diamond Heights to the Punk Sprawl of Central Station. A good game with a lot to keep you entertained.
