Advantages: Fun, easy to play
MySims racing is one of the many ds games I own and I find it very addictive. It can be purchased for around £15 online and you maybe able to get it cheaper if your lucky.
MySims Racing is a raging game with a difference, you start of with your own little Sim which you name and you then design your own car to take you around the game in.
The game play is broken down into tasks where you drive around the town helping people in order to gain 'essences' which you can then use to improve your car or if your lucky you may get blueprints which you can take the garage to get the mechanic to make to then add to your car to improve its speed and manuverability. The other part of the game is of course races. In order to move through the game you will need to be able to win these races to gain the blueprints which will give you the best racing car possible. As you race the other sims on the race track you pick up parcels which contain various things to use on your opponents to help you get to the front of the pack.
I find that the game play took a bit of getting used to the bottom screen shows a map of where you are going and the top screen shows where you are in the town and so you need to keep an eye on both the map to see where you need to go and the top screen so you don't drive into anything on your way to your destination.
The game play is addictive and I just want to keep trying until I win the race. My tip would be help as many people in the village as you can to earn the as many essenses and blueprints as possible so your car will beat the others. When helping others you can say no without loosing anything some people may want to be driven to the beach which maybe 3 screens away and if you on your way somewhere else you can come back to them and not loose out so don't think you have to help everyone immediately. The graphics are very bright and colourful as you play which adds to the experience. this game can be played against others but I have not experienced this so can not comment.
Overall a fun racing game for young and old a like 5 stars from me.
