E3 2003: The Sims Bustiní Out Hands-On Impressions
Whether or not you picked up The Sims last year for the PS2 is irrelevant; everyone has heard of the series and understand its massive success. EA was determined to bring the franchise over to the console realms of gaming and succeeded tremendously as the game went on to sell extremely well. With this in mind, EA has decided to publish a second installment in the series for the PS2 and the title of the game is The Sims Bustiní Out. The idea behind the game is players are now able to move their characters outside, as numerous objectives and paths are available outside the house. Vehicles are made accessible in the various journeys and can be upgraded as you complete the different missions. Each character has multiple paths to endeavor and is rewarded with items depending on their success.
The Sims Bustiní Out controlled similar to last yearís title and continues the trend of enthralling gameplay known to the franchise. The graphics of the game are about average for the PS2, but The Sims has never been about flashy visuals to excite its fans. The basis for the game is an exciting one and should definitely motivate gamers to pick up the title. Expect The Sims Bustiní Out to be successful for the PS2, as development seems to be well in order.
