  • Summary: 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. [Electronic Arts] Expand

  1. MySims Agents is one of the best games to come out on the Wii yet this year – at least for the pre-teen gamers out there. Agents does a fantastic job of introducing young gamers to the concepts of open world and resource management gaming genres – and helps stimulate their inquisitive nature all while having a blast.
  2. A must have title for the Wii if you have little ones and even worth a look if you don't. A solid and fun game that let's you play the role of a secret agent.
  3. No, these aren’t the most difficult puzzles you’ll ever encounter. But you know what? MySims Agents is one of the most fun kids' titles you’ll play this year.
  4. MySims Agents is the most traditional episode of the series, but also, probably, the best one. It's an interesting and amusing, albeit unoriginal, adventure which will delight younger players more than the older ones.
  5. The MySims series has definitely released a good game in MySims Agents, and it will be well received by the Wii's younger audience.
  6. Most adult gamers will find MySims Agents to be a walk in the park and will probably get bored of the same routine rather quickly. As such, this game is not geared for adults but for younger gamers looking for a bit of adventure and something that doesn’t contain any violence. This is definitely the best game in the franchise and one that anyone under the age of 13 will enjoy.

    While casting adorable MySims in a kid-friendly, superspy adventure is an idea filled with potential, the game suffers from the one thing a superspy shouldn't have to endure -- boring and repetitive cases.

    Another entry in the MySims line, Agents attempts to expand on the craft-a-solution approach used by Kingdom...with unpredictable results. While Agents does present players with multiple puzzles, mysteries, and quests to solve, the build-a-solution approach used by Kingdom is inexplicably abbreviated in this installment. The only construction to do happens in one's base facility. This is rewarding, as the improvements made directly affect the effectiveness of your recruited assistant agents, but is not as engrossing or detailed as Kingdom. There are no mechanical puzzles to the depth found in Kingdom. In comparison, Agents is surprisingly shallow when held next to the predecessor that was Kingdom. On its own, however, Agents rates a 7 easily; it's entertaining enough to be fun, but lacks depth. Expand

    Like any Sims or MySims game, this game was much fun, what with many cases to play and customizable characters. However, for a kids game, I found some of the challenges EXTREMELY difficult, specifically the one where you have to put the colored dots together in a certain way, and, while I managed to either figure them out after a bunch of messing around or looking up walkthroughs, younger kids might not have as much knowledge on how to do that. Another thing that bothered me was the ending, however, I won't talk about that in detail as it would be spoilerish, I just think that the ending should have had more gameplay. Either way, it's still recommended, if you can look past these FRUSTRATING things. Expand
