One of the main reasons I bought this other than the fact that I like the sims is that I was a massive black eyed peas fan.
Platform- multiple platforms including Game Boy Advance, GameCube, PlayStation 2, Xbox, Nintendo DS. This is not on pc.
Gameplay - not open like other sims games in this you do have tasks to do and once completed its either start again maybe in a different district or go around pointlessly .I don't think this game will give you as much enjoyment as normal sims. Also because it is on ps2 you don't have the option to add expansion packs to give you extra.
Value for money - this features the black eyed peas plus has their songs in simish so makes it a nice novelty factor.
After picking what kind of sim (urbz) you want to be you then move into an apartment .Once there you decide to go out clubbing but are rejected because you cant do a cool dance move. The black eyed peas help you at this point.You then meet Darius who is the most popular urbz but he is missing parts from his secret machine.He promises that he will give you a special surprise if you find the parts. This involves going round the districts and doing various tasks. These get harder as you get to districts that are your "opposite" so say you pick grunge as your look you have problems speaking to people who wear high fashion. You can change your look once you get to the different district though to make it esier.
**What I liked**
Some of the tasks were quite fun.
You have a bed to sleep in at each area which saves you having to go back to your apartment..
The game loads quickly.
This makes a nice change to the normal sims - much better than castaway etc.
I think the sims look better in this than in the normal sims.
You only get to change apartment 3 times- the last time being at the end.
Game play doesn't last as long.
This can be bought for £10 on amazon
The sims urbz in the city brings a whole new life to sims. it is more about getting reputation and trying to be popular on the streets. Getting a job is fun on here because you actually have to do the job" The better you do, the more you get paid! You d othe job by entering the series of buttons it tells you to press and if you get some wrong, you get paid less!
there are new items on this game as well as the fact that you can have pets!
there are also a lot more interactions with other people and new things you can do!
another thing i like about this game is that you can use your webcam on there! You can take a picture of yourself and then, when you are walking down the street, sometimes you might see a poster of yourslef against one of the walls! If is very good and sort of lifelike!
