Wii | MySims Agents | Video Game Review
In MySims Agents players take on the role of a special agent on a mission to uncover and foil the sinister plans of Morcubus, the corrupt CEO of MorcuCorp. Players will search for clues and solve cases across the city and far beyond as they piece together his nefarious plans.
Armed with a set of increasingly sophisticated gadgets, players will track footprints, pick locks, hack into computers and do molecular forensics.
They will jump, climb, balance and build their way to follow cases no matter where they lead, even taking a private jet to reach an ancient temple, a spooky mansion and an icy mountaintop chalet. Along the way they meet MySims they can recruit to build up their own team of agents, and unlock rare items they can use to deck out their headquarters.
Rated E and available at most major stores for $49.95.
I recently received a copy of My Sims Agents for the Wii to review and I am hooked. I was going to give it to my tween daughter to play but now she has to get in line. I love this game! It is so cool to run around the town finding clues and interviewing people to find out if they had an alibi or not. But wait I am getting ahead of myself here, let me back up a bit.
I love that they let you choose the gender of your agent and dress them, change their hairstyles and name them. Any game that allows you to customize will always get props from me on that point. This is a very cute, engaging game and it really gets you thinking. I will have to say (and I am embarrassed to be saying) that some of the hardest puzzles come in the form of molecular forensics and the hacking where you have to keep a steady hand, which I don’t have at all. But that only makes the game more enjoyable and you get a great feeling of actually accomplishing something.
I have also enjoyed having my kids sit on the couch and watch me play and see if they can help out with the clues as I have actually been stuck before, and of course when I figured it out I say, “It was right under my nose!” My kids shook their heads and laughed. This is a great family game too!
The MySims Agents is a very fun game, and I enjoy playing it daily. I recommend this game for the Nintendo Wii to everyone, especially for the kids on your list, even if it’s really for the parents
