This is the 3rd Sims GBA game I've had, and although a very good game, addictive, and entertaining, for me it was far too easy. In the other games (The Sims: Bustin' Out and The Urbz) you were given a task to do and working out how to do it was up to you. In The Sims 2, however, the task given often includes exactly where or who to go to to complete the task. I've had it less than a week, have only played for an hour a day maximum, and I'm already 2/3 of the way through the game. It also seems to me that there are less levels/episodes to complete than there were in the other games, but I could be wrong. I believe there are 11 episodes in this game, and one of those you have to link up with a fellow Sims player to access. 10 levels is poor for any game. This would probably be a good game for younger fans of The Sims (i.e. under 13) as I can see the other ones might be a bit hard and frustrating. However, if you are a teenager or adult looking for some Sims related entertainment, I would get The Sims: Bustin' Out or The Urbz instead, which offer more complicated gaming and probably more hours of gameplay.

It really is good but i got it thinking it would be like the sims 2 on the computer. It isn't.
You work for this guy who is secretly filming a reality TV show in strangetown and you're the only one who knows about it and you are his employed actor(Or actress). When i first got this (from amazon) I thought it was a bit boring and also i was disappointed that it wasn't like the real sims, but once i got over the disappointment, i started enjoying it. I would recommend it. It's good fun and challenging sometimes too.

Absolutely love this game! I have The Sims 2 on many different consoles, and this one adds to my collection. Once again it shows the Sims in a very different light, and gives you far different challenges to those found in other consoles. Certainly worth having if you're just starting on the Sims, or, like me, just want to expand your collection.
