The Sims are back...,
This review is from: The Sims Bustin Out (Xbox Classics) (Video Game)
It's a pretty well known fact to anyone with the slightest interest in computer games, that The Sims is the best selling video game ever. So clearly with those kind of credentials, EA (the game's publishers) are going to milk it for all it's worth.
So here we have a second installment of the people simulator on the XBOX. First off, this is better than The Sims in everyway.
Not that the first game was bad, no, it's just that, well once you've played this one, you probably be a little miffed that there is so much missing from number one and you'll end up thinking "why couldn't they have done that in the first game?"
So, what's new? Well as the title suggests, this time the sims are not confined to their homes. Oh no, they can actually go and visit relatives, girlfriends/boyfriends you can even go to their place of work (but since my sim could only get a job cleaning toilets at the local army base, I wasn't exactly thrilled to accompany him to his nine to five!). This gives the whole game a much more open ended feel. The loading times to get to these locations are horrendous though.
Graphically it's much the same but have a lot of new objects to toy with and the create a sim has been spruced up a lot.
All in all, if you own the first game, think twice. But if you've never played the sims before, this game is definately one to look for.
