  1. MySims Agents is a solid entry in the series filled with memorable encounters and characters. Fans of MySims Kingdom will certainly enjoy the change of setting. While older players will breeze through it and yearn for more things to see and do, younger ones will enjoy the minigames, agency customization, and quirky cases.
  2. With light platforming, simple controls, bright color pallet, basic game design, and ease of use, MySims Agent is probably the best game in the MySims series. Although best suited for younger players, adult gamers can still get some entertainment out of this title.
  3. In Agents we follow a detective who has to find kidnapped dogs and save the planet from destruction. The difficulty setting is a bit low but it is a long and entertaining journey especially for the younger audience.

    Chatting with characters can get tiresome, too; it's entertaining when they have funny dialogue, but the humor isn't as consistent as I'd like. [Nov 2009, p.89]
  5. For a game with such a new perspective and new approach to the MySims franchise, the ideas it incorporates are used so much that they become old after the first few hours of play, which is disappointing and means that this never fully achieves its full potential.

    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.

The puzzle solving is great for them and I'd much rather see a game with such problem solving skills than any shoot'em up sort of video game. This is great! Full Review »

    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, ILike 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. Full Review »

    Another entry in the MySims line, Agents attempts to expand on the craft-a-solution approach used by Kingdom...with unpredictable results.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. Full Review »
