We got a Wii for Christmas and while there are a few games we have that I really like, my taste is not really in line with what the boys like. I've always loved the Sims PC games, so when I had the opportunity to review MySims Agents, I was really excited.
In this game, you become a special agent and go to different places where you have to find clues using the different tools you have and you do puzzle type things for picking locks, analyzing things and fixing things. That is what makes this my kind of game. I love when there are games inside of a game, so the different puzzle type activities sold me. They get progressively harder as you go, only making it more challenging and more fun (in my opinion). The boys absolutely love the game too and while I have to help them out with some of the more difficult puzzles, it's still a lot of fun to them.
We only buy games that are rated E, so MySims Agents is a perfect fit for us. Even Asher plays it a little (he's 4). He doesn't really get it, but he likes to run around the town and go in the buildings and stuff. He mostly likes to create his Sim and keep changing it's clothes, so that makes it fun for him.
I have to admit, I played this game for 4 days in a row for more hours than I'm willing to admit. I ended up finishing all the missions, yet I can still keep playing! There are still dispatch missions to send my recruits on, as well as some mini games I can play, so it's not over once you've completed the main missions. They also left it wide open for a MySims Agents 2, so I'm hoping they'll come out with that in the near future.
Overall, I think it's a great game that our whole family enjoys and that is appropriate and fun. We love it!
I've been married to my husband, Brian, since June 12, 1999 and we have 3 amazing boys. I was fortunate enough to be able to stay home and raise my kids until they were all in school and I am thankful for that everyday. I'm a quirky, emotional, self-proclaimed dork and I've finally gotten to the point in my life where I'm cool with that.
