I don't understand the negative reviews of this game. I'm 17 and I actually bought this digital download for my sister because she'd been wanting to play it but we don't have a Wii and I wanted to surprise her (She's 10 years old.) with it when she got home from school.

For her age it does take a couple tries on some things to figure out, but not too complex that kids couldn't figure it out. It doesn't say it's educational but the building furniture and houses using the blocks to figure out which ones will fit is probably educational for kids in some way. I ended up playing it last night to see if it was any good for people my age and it is quite fun! Just don't skip the information bits, like when they teach you how to fish or prospect, I skipped those and couldn't figure out how to do them correctly until I looked it up online!

Overall this is a fun game for everyone in the family, it's like Animal Crossing meets The Sims.

I bought this game for myself originally, but it was not long before my oldest child was asking me to buy a copy for the kids' computer. This is the fist non-educational game I have bought for my kids and they really like it. They "won" the game after about 1 month, but it is made to where you can just keep playing after achieving the main goal.

We can visit each other in our 'gardens' and it is still safe in a way that no one else can visit with my kids. It is a super cute and clean game and has actually taught my oldest how to read/spell a few words.

I especially like the workshop tasks, they are fun to do even for adults and I think teaches good skills to kids. The workshop was a little too hard at first, but you know how kids are - it was no time before they were making elaborate stuff for the townspeople.

You can change the appearance and voice of your character at any time in the game and the kids like that a lot. I think it is novel, but only interesting the first couple times.

I enjoyed playing the game, but got bored with it after a couple weeks. My kids are still going strong, playing as often as I will let them. If it were just me, I might give it only 3 or 4 stars, but accounting for my kids and how much they love it, I am giving it 5.

I purchased MySims on Amazon for my son to use on his netbook computer. After several months, I have not been able to successfully install the game onto his computer due to the SecureROM copy protection 'feature'. I have contacted EA customer support. They started with a cut-and-paste response that didn't answer my question and then summarily closed my ticket without answering my question. The sad thing is that these schemes don't really stop pirates--it just angers legitimate users who pay for their programs. I don't plan on purchasing another EA title.

I love this game and the sequel (Kingdoms). I wish they would make more of them, by after using the mySims characters in cheap non-building spinoffs, I think that EA ruined the franchise.

Still if you want to enjoy the original or the equally great Kingdoms, then go for it. You will not be disappointed in a light hearted but fun, customizable mini-adventure game.

My little sister, age 8, has always wanted to play The Sims "just like you". However, she isn't allowed to due to her age.
She saw a game (DS I believe) at the store that said Sims and was rated E. I researched games for her. Turned out that DS game had bad reviews so I searched for another sim game rated E. I found this.

She has enjoyed it a lot, as do two younger siblings aged 4 and 6. At first, when they were just starting, the controls frustrated them. After a week or so they got the hang of things and it was easier. The main problem was getting them OFF the game!

Now, over a month later, they are still playing it. Not as much as they did but they play every day for a bit.
We loved that the game had three character slots. In this way they each got their own persons.

8 year old was sad that you couldn't have "babies and kids" but she loves it anyway.

I have not played this game so cannot give first hand info. They all love it though.
The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is that the controls are a tad hard for younger kids. In a game that is aimed at younger ones- the controls should be easy.

We have, so far, had no problems running the game or with securom. No glitches or anything that I have heard about.

What a great game to play at leisure, if you like to build or have a child that likes to build this is the game for them. I have it for the Wii and I have played it many times over. The nice part about this game is that it is different everytime that you play it depending on who you let into your town and where you put them.
I disagree with the others and their reviews, not that they are not entitled to their opinion, but I loved it, also Sims Agents was a great game, Sims Kingdom for the Wii was another one........Try it before you decide.......computer is fun but for a game like this I love it on the Wii. Also it is a game that is rated pg... it can be played by any age, no objectionable content in it.......the whole premise is to be nice....what a lovely thing to teach a child.
