MySims: Kingdom (Wii)
Advantages: The range of characters, challenges and islands; The character Buddy :]
Disadvantages: It can be very time consuming
A few months back we brought My Sims Kingdom for the Nintendo Wii. I absolutely love the game! Almost every time I go on the Wii I play this for half an hour at least before I go on something else. It's addictive, just like the rest of the Sims series!
- What Is The Sims?
The Sims is a game that came out on March 23rd 2001 as a basic life simulation game. The game got very popular very quickly. The creators of the Sims released seven expansion packs for the game which brought them even more fans. After three years the Sims 2 came out on September 16th 2004. The Sims 2 was an even bigger hit than the original game selling 13 million copies worldwide! The Sims 2 released eight expansion packs and ten stuff packs to add to the game. As the Sims got even more fans the creators decided to expand the series again, releasing the Sims 3 on June 5th 2009. As of yet there are no expansion packs but there are rumours of one being released soon.
As well as the three Sims games there are other games in the Sims series, just not the same sort of thing as the Sims, Sims 2 and Sims 3. There are three The Sims Stories games to the series. The Sims Life Stories was released on February 6th 2007, the Sims Pet Stories was released on June 22nd 2007 and the Sims Castaway Stories was released on January 29th 2008. Also in the Sims series there are My Sims. My Sims is a completely different game, it's more like a cartoon than the other Sims games. Although they're very different My Sims are still just as good. The original My Sims game was released on September 21st 2007. There are four other My Sims games. There are also seven games which can be brought for Playstation 2.The Sims series has gone from just PC games to being brought on Nintendo DS, Nintendo Wii and Playstation 2.
- The Game Itself.
My Sims Kingdom is the second My Sims game out. It was released on October 31st 2008 on both Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS, although it can't be brought on PC. Like the Sims 3, My Sims Kingdom was published by Electronic Arts (EA). In all of the My Sims games, unlike the rest of the Sims games, you don't have wants, fears or needs which does make the games a lot easier.
- Create Your Sim.
The first thing you do when you press New Game is create your Sim. First of all you change the hair style and colour, the eyes, the mouth and you can add other things to your Sims face. Also you change the name and voice of your Sim. Secondly you change your Sims clothes. On most of the hair the colour choices are black, brown, blonde and pink, which a few exceptions on certain hairstyles. As you progress through the game you will gain more hairstyles and clothes that your Sim can change into.
- Game Play.
When you first start the game it tells you to complete your first challenge, while at the same time explaining the basic controls to you. After you've completed a couple of missions you have to go to the king and train to become the new Wandolier. Once you've completed your training and have won the competition you are the new royal Wandolier! As you progress through the game you will be faced with a lot of challenges, meet new Sims and travel to new places. To say thank you for all your efforts you will be granted a number of points called King Points every time you complete a challenge. There are five levels in King Points, and every time you reach the top of one level you get treasures like maps to new islands, scrolls to give your wand new powers and objects to help complete the scrolls.
At the beginning of your quest you must complete all challenges on that island, but once you've finished you are given two maps to new islands. On those two island it's the same type of thing, you have to make everyone happy, but to do so can be hard in some parts. You must make houses, repair things, connect pipes, connect wires etc etc. Altogether there are ten islands, but you have to go back to previous islands because there are more tasks there! You don't go around on your own, you are joined by your two best friends Buddy, the clumsy messenger, and Lindsay, who loves adventures and helps with the scrolls. Along the way you will meet all different kinds of Sims, from Goths to elves! Some of the Sims are kinder to you but others are very demanding and short tempered. On some Sims you will need to 'socialize' with them to cheer them up, get information out of them, or something else entirely. Some Sims will ask you a favour that you collect something for them such as one flower from each island, or one of each fish and so on.
- Good Points.
I love this game because it has a balance of easy and hard tasks. In a lot of games the challenges start of very easy and get ridiculously hard, but in this game it can start out harder or easier, it just depends which part you're on. Also I love that there are a range of characters not just the average person, you can tell what is different between each Sim. My Sims Kingdom has a variety of challenges, some are repeated but in a different way, but it's still really good. There is also humour in the game too, especially on the island 'Rocket Reef' and the Sims there, I find it hilarious.
- Bad Points.
My Sims Kingdom hasn't got a lot of things wrong with it but I think there are a couple of things that could be improved. First of all it should be a bit harder, I know I said there's a nice balance of easy and hard challenges but I think there should be some that are harder and would take a while to complete. Secondly I think there should be more challenges on each island because it only takes me a little while to complete each part. Lastly you can loose track of the time very easily, you'd be playing for a while and you look at the clock and you find that a two hours have gone by!
- Extra Information.
Off www.amazon.co.uk you can buy My Sims Kingdom new for £11.03. You need a Wii Remote and Nunchuk to be able to use the game. I also have My Sims Kingdom on Nintendo DS but it's better on Nintendo Wii.
