    A surprisingly good game for many age groups, MySims Kingdom is a combination puzzle and builder game that allows the player to really craft a world to his or her liking.

Taking the well-worn "you're the person destined to save our world" approach, Kingdom nevertheless puts a new spin on this old plot, and does well with it. As the player, you will be tasked with the construction of buildings and facilities for the inhabitants of various islands (the game's chapter system), and completing tasks unlocks new islands with new quests. Once the game is 2/3 complete, the existing islands develop a new series of quests, giving second-playthrough fun during the initial playthrough. Even replays of this game don't get old, as there are hundreds of ways to complete various tasks. Among the most entertaining are the mechanical puzzles, requiring the player to build a machine to transfer mechanical or electrical energy from component to component to complete some sort of task (turn a fan, power a computer, what-have-you). Without any elements that would be excessively difficult or troubling for younger audiences, but with complexity enough to entertain older audiences, MySims Kingdom is a surprise winner of a game and well worth the purchase price.

  1. Other than that, this is a must-own for Wii devotees and Sims fans alike. [Dec 2008, p.100]
  2. There was plenty here to explore and build, and while the story might have been on the forgettable side, I really enjoyed the focused Sim-style gameplay.
  3. MySims Kingdom is all about the experience and it takes you on a charming journey where you get to meet and greet some brilliant characters. Yet, as an adventure, MySims is now in the company of the best that Wii has to offer and it just can't live with the likes of Galaxy and Twilight Princess. Still, provided you have some heart, this Kingdom packs more than enough personality to make it well worth a visit.
