In MySims Agents players take on the role of a special agent hired to foil the sinister plans of Morcubus, lord of the criminal underworld. By recruiting different MySims, each with their own special characteristics, players can build up their very own crime-busting dream team. From tracking footprints and using forensics to picking locks, hacking into computers, following leads and collecting clues, players must rely on their wits, skills and trusty gadgets to piece together the clues to solve the mystery. Jump aboard the jet to reach an ancient temple, a spooky mansion or an icy mountaintop chalet in search of clues that lead players closer to the sinister Morcubus. Return from the adventure with cool treasures that players can use to construct and customize their headquarters and make it their own.
Who hasn’t at one time in their lives imagined that they are a secret agent? MySims Agents transports you into the world of make believe mysteries! As a MySims Agent you will track and solve cases, build your own investigative team and explore exotic locations!
We were excited to receive MySims Agents, for the Wii, to review and the kids and I had great fun creating our characters and getting started in the business of investigation! Let me warn you that this game can be addictive, especially if you enjoy puzzles and mysteries! This game was best for my older daughter (she is 10) only because you have to read everything. Not that my 6 year old did not enjoy it because she sat with us for over an hour while I read her the storyline as it was carried out. She just could not play it by herself without knowing what the characters were saying.
I have to admit that after the kids went to bed, I got back on My Sims Agents so that I could solve a few more mysteries by myself! I was so excited to show my kids that I had earned my own headquarters – and even got to the point where I could start recruiting additional agents to join my team!
Each case seems to get a bit more detailed and complicated. The first one was a dog napping case, and then we had to find out who had sent flowers as a secret admirer and the next one was tracking down some stolen maps and solving a fire mystery.
Here are a few screen shots that I would like to share with you:
My 10 year old daughter recently had a sleepover party and we discussed Wii games with the girls. MySims Agents ranked high among them as one of the family favorites. It is also a great game to play when you are all sore from the sports games, because it provides a less active game experience and focuses more on developing critical thinking skills.
MySims Agents is available for the Wii or Nintendo DS platforms and is produced under the EA Play Label, which means that this game can be enjoyed by all ages, children to seniors!
My Thoughts: A great family game, MySims Agents can be played solo or together as a family. My girls enjoyed the storyline and also had a great time trying to find the clues to solve the cases. I definitely recommend this game for times when you just don’t feel up to battling it out with boxing or sword fighting. Also great for when you need your children to be quiet and occupied for a while so that you can get something done!
