5.0 out of 5 stars Basically the same but with more! December 22, 2003
I like many of the other reviewers that played the first Sims PS2 version until I was dreaming of Sims characters I'd played it so much. So I was really looking forward to Sims Bustin Out for my Gamecube.
So far I love the game. Many of the things are similar to the other version, but this one has many more things you can do for careers and fun. The added option of the cars/scooters was a neat option although I'm not real sure for the Gamecube version they needed it since you don't control the vehicle only get in and go to whereever you want and it runs automatically, so it's more that you own one.
One thing I love is that you can go visit other places in the game. It's much easier to get to know other Sims by visiting their homes. Also some of the other Sims have items that you might not have unlocked so there are items for fun that you can join in together to not only gain more friends but so your fun level is also effected. There is so much more that you can do with your Sims also such as Tell story/Kiss hand/etc.
This game is great fun and you'll find yourself wrapped up in it for hours and replaying is a definite must because there are so many different careers you can accept and different roommates you can have and so many different jobs you can take to earn different bonus items/special items.
Now for my complaints. Don't get me wrong these things DO NOT take away from my 5 stars I still LOVE this game!!!
As I mentioned I have the Gamecube version, so I don't know about the other platforms, but this one my car was nothing more than something that took me somewhere. I wasn't able to drive or have control over it. I also have been unable to find a way to skip over the driving screen movie/image/whatever they call them. So it takes up a little bit of time.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Sims: Bustin' Out! Amazon.Com Review December 28, 2004
A Kid's Review
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Hello, and welcome to my review of The Sims: Bustin' Out! I have recently purchased this game, which is also my first Sims game (second if you count the awful SimCity3000) and, although many kids my age describe it as "incredbly kool u will luv it," whatever that means, I must say that this game is incredibly cool; you will love it. Let's begin with some of the things that make the game so incredible.

The first thing that I will talk about is the Story Mode; entitled "Bust Out" in the game. Here you attempt to complete a large amount of goals to keep you busy. Or, if you're like me, as long as you make sure that you feed your Sim and keep him or her clean and happy, you can stay at Mom's house all the time and make all your money via the Great Big Adventure Japanese Arcade Cabinet (unlocked by connecting a Game Boy Advance to the GameCube and turning on the GBA). Explore tons of new locations like Dudley's Trailer, the slob's home, Mimi's Place, the cranky yet playful female's abode, Clubb Rubb, the hit dance club, and the Casa Caliente, the house of romance, in this gigantic GCN title.

Now, let's talk about creating Sims. The female's customization is very limited and even the largest female body size is set to go with America's unnaturally thin standards of beauty. Also, most of the females' clothes available show way too much skin. The male customization is very good, however, and even though they are still unnaturally thin, the accesories and clothing rock.

Now, for free play mode. I have only attempted this "family creator" once before, and gave up when my best attempt ended up looking like a man in drag.

5.0 out of 5 stars New & Improved, but with glitch problems April 6, 2004
Verified Purchase
This newest platform version of The Sims is much improved and loads of fun. The "Bustin Out" portion of the game is extremely goal oriented. You move into various locations and from the beginning you are told how many goals are unlockable at each location and have a basic idea of what you get for unlocking them. I found it to be very satisfying to unlock the goals. Another BIG improvement is that you can switch careers without penalty. Whatever title you have achieved is still yours when you come back to that career. Just make sure you don't get fired, you lose one step in the career AND a point from one of your stats. You have many more choices for your sim's appearance and can change outfits & hair color/style each time you start up the game. You also get some of the money back that you spent fixing up each location, which is nice starting money for the next place you move to. Overall, it's a great game, I have spent many hours playing & haven't even gotten to the free play mode yet, so it's definately worth the Simoleans!
I am editing this to add that since my original review, I have experienced some MAJOR glitches in this game. The first and most problematic was having my game fail to load after a save. It just freezes on the load screen, which forced me to start a whole new game from scratch. I was quite far in the game and this did not make me happy. Some other glitches were:
1. A sim showed up to visit, walked in and wouldn't leave. He slept in my bed, ate my food, etc. I finally had to reset the game.
2. The game consistently freezes when your baby matures into a child, again, a reset situation.
3. My sim was washing dishes in the sink and the sink broke, the sim was stuck with her hands in the sink washing dishes and I couldn't get her to stop. Reset AGAIN..YAY!!!
This is the buggiest console game I have ever played and feel that this game would have benefited from much more playtesting.
