this is ideal for a beginner or advanced player for the sims and this game is much, much more calmer from the frantic gameplay from the PC game as it is much easier to get your social levels back to the top or put out a fire before your house is a burning pile of ruble.
great game and is well worth buying
The basic aim of the game is to gradually move to a bigger and and better house. Sounds boring? It isn't.
To move up in the world, you have to complete 5 tasks per house, with each one involving 3-6 sub-tasks. These can be anything from raising money, to making friends with certain people. You're helped out by a scooter, which you acquire early on in the game.
For veteren fans of The Sims, theres the usual ability to furnish your house, and control your Sims every move. But in Bustin' Out, theres a whole town to explore, with pet shops, gyms and librarys, plus a far more in-depth way to interact with other Sims.
Unlike on the PC, you play with only one person; there are no other family members. There are no job restrictions (you won't get sacked if you don't turn up for two days), but there are several jobs that your sim can do as and when you wish them to earn money, which are like mini-games within the game. You can also earn money by collecting certain objects to be recycled or helping out other residents of Sim Valley.
Again, like the PC version, you have to meet their needs for hunger, hygiene and social etc, but this time you actually have specific challenges to complete. Each challenge has 3-4 goals thst need to be completed such as improving skills (like in the PC version), building relationships with a specified sim or finding certain objects. Improving skills also helps you get promoted within the job games. As you complete a certain number of challenges, you get to move to a new, bigger house each time.
The main difference between this game and the PC version is the fact that it can be completed and there is not a free-play version that you can do. However the numerous challenges and goals keep you occupied for hours (it can be addictive - as all the best games are!).
I am relatively new to hand held gaming, but I think even die-hards will find something appealing in Bustin' Out. However if your thing is racing or shooting games, then you may find this game is not for you.
You have more independence than Ps2, Abox and PC versions as you can do literally what do want. It's so addictive i spent 6 hours full stop until i was dragged off it!
Don't hestitate - I can guarantee it will not disappoint
