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.

Description

The 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 Sushi Bar, Chop Shop, 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; then cross the velvet ropes of an uptown night club or explore the subway to earn new skills and items for your high-rise crib. It's up to you whether your Urbz become big-time players on the street or are lost in the crowd. It's all about reputation as The Urbz are living the dream in a City that never sleeps. Features:
  • Reputation (rep): Build your reputation within the world, outside your hood, and through characters you'll hang with. Your goal is to be the biggest player in the city with ultimate access to the hottest places and people.
  • Urban Style: An all-new character engine turns your Urbz into hip city dwellers. Take your Urbz out on the town to swanky new hot spots like the Sushi Bar, VIP Club, or even out to get a tattoo at the Tattoo Parlor.
  • New Gameplay Experience: You now control your Urbz 24/7 in the city that never sleeps. You directly control your Urbz on the job to make sushi or strip down motorcycles, etc., to earn Simoleans and gain access to new social interactions! Motive gameplay is more elegant than ever so that you fulfill your motives quicker and even have limited motives to manage in specific situations. You can bounce into a hip boutique and change your look in-game from rasta to rap, affecting how the world perceives you!
  • Lifestyles & Districts: Choose to live in one of nine districts (neighborhoods), each with its own unique inhabitants and their lifestyles. Depending on which district you pick your gameplay experience and the way you earn your reputation will be different.

New audio and music reflects the sounds of the city and the beat of urban lifestyles.
