4.0 out of 5 stars Um...not as much as I thought March 19, 2005
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game at first was great...but started to get boring.

The Urbz was the first game i bought for my Gamecube. I was satisfied...for 2 days.

I got to Darius's penthouse really fast, and after that theres nothing to do. the goals are the same...in every district!

Pros:

Fun

Cool Clothes

Nice houses

cool furniture

cool people

Cons:

easy

repetitive goals

pets (they peed everywhere)

socials (to confusing)

gets boring

no money (you only buy clothes!)

daruis's "money machine" it didnt even work

rep (deterorates fast)

then..i bought the Sims for gamecube. it was sooooooooooo much better. and so overall the urbz was to much of a strech for the sims creators

4.0 out of 5 stars A good addition to Sim fans collection January 23, 2007
By Shantel
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
in this game you create a character, like any sims game, but the twist is that they have a quirky new city inspired style. the point of the game is to go to different cities, meet new people, and do some strange but funny jobs to gain money and points. in each city you have to dress according to what the style is for that city, if you don't you can't get into parties and the residents won't trust you. the music in this game is really good. i found myself bopping my head to the music. the graphics are good, too. they are colorful and fun. there are a lot of objects and cool clothes you can buy in each city. i like this game a lot. and i recommend it to all Sims fans. it is one of the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Urbz Is Living Big, Huge, Skyscraper Huge! December 30, 2004
A Kid's Review
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Urbz was one of my top 5 favorite X-mas presants this year!!!!! Ingnore the negative complaints about this game! I love and you should to! it's so cool because you can earn money quick, graphics are like so real, and all the cool clothing opions and social options. Being able to make your own crew of people is awsome! You also have the hip Black Eyed Peas download. Go and buy this game!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat entertaining; rather disappointing September 13, 2005
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm a 25 year old female gamer who has played and enjoyed all the Sims games, on the PC and console. However, I was very disappointed with Urbz. The music is great and the idea of gaining popularity in each subculture is a fun concept - but it just wasn't as entertaining as it potentially could have been.

There were several "challenges" that merely required a boring repetition of pressing the same buttons over and over. There's very little, if any, strategy involved - especially when compared to the other sims goal-oriented games where some thought is required to solve puzzles and reach goals. The Urbz is mind-numbing at best.

The most disappointing part of the game was its length - I beat it easily in just a few days. And I actually had to look up a walkthrough online to make sure I had, in fact, beaten the game as it ended so suddenly.

I can see how this game would be thrilling for a 7 or 8 year old, but it really isn't extremely entertaining for anyone much older.

As a Sims fan, I really wanted to play this game, despite any bad reviews. I rented it, though, and beat it long before its due date. Unless you are considering this game for a child under ten, I don't think it would be wise to spend this much money on a game that will be beaten in half a week and most likely will never be played again. It is worth renting, as there are some fun elements, but I definitely don't reccomend buying it.

Compared to all other Sims games (and I've played them all), this is the worst. The Sims Bustin' Out and Sims 2 for the PC are spectacular games and are entirely superior to Urbz: Sims in the City.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Sims game to feed your Sims addiction! July 20, 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Reviewed for Big Boss Games by: CRR

The first two titles in the series by EA Games are The Sims and The Sims Bustin' Out, but make way for number three, The Urbz: Sims in the city.

In The Urbz, you guide your Sim through life in nine very diverse culturally different districts, where you have to walk the walk and talk the talk. As in its two predecesors, in The Urbz, you have goals to achieve, bills to pay and promotions to obtain. The differences you'll find in this game are in the jobs you work and clothes you buy, which are district specific, and the other Sims you meet and interact with.

Another difference is that you have to build up your reputation. This is achieved by meeting and befriending as many different Sims as you can and learning their specific social interactions. At the start of the game, you must choose what district to start out in. By completing your goals and building your rep, you unlock other districts to visit and work in.

The main goal is to build yourself up to have the highest rep in the city, so that everyone wants to be your friend. This game is fun and simplistic without being too easy. Plus, after you beat it the first time, you can always go back and play as someone different, giving this game replay potential.

On a scale on 1-10, I give this game an 8.5. Sim-fans should not miss out on The Urbz!
