MySims Racing

 

A worthy racer but it comes in second

MySims Racing

 

Essentially Mario Kart, but without the Nintendo characters.

In conclusion, despite EA having listened to the fans' feedbacks on what games to make, the final execution of those games have been on the low side. MySims Racing is certainly a lot better than MySims Party. As a standalone racing title, it had plenty...

MySims Racing

 

MySims Racing doesn't shatter kart-racing conventions, but it has a couple of fun new ideas that set it apart from the pack.

Fun customization options ; Story mode mixes up the standard kart-racing formula

No online multiplayer ; Sense of speed is lacking when you're not boosting

MySims Racing (Wii) review

 

If imitation be the food of flattery, copy on…

Certainly not the worst way a child could be entertained, but lacking quite the depth, variety or balance of other kart racing sims. Picking up Nintendo's genuine article is our preferred way to avoid tears before bedtime.

MySims Racing

 

It was only a matter of time. We've had just about every other genre taken over by the Sims, so why not racing? The saying goes 'always steal from the best', so it stands to reason that EA turned to Mario Kart for inspiration. It's a cheeky move...but...

Addictive racing ; Story mode broadens playability ; Easy to drive and modify cars ; Build a car, van or truck ; Unlock new engine blueprints ; 4 player mode

No online multiplayer options ; It's highly derivative of Mario Kart ; Races are on the whole too easy ; Challenges all feel very samey ; Lack of motion controls ; Scattershot missions

MySims Racing is surprisingly addictive - mostly because it reminds you so much of Mario Kart, but overall it finishes a close second.

MySims Racing

 

MySims Racing" for the Nintendo DS and Wii is an addictive and fun game, but it still can't top the Nintendo IPs.

Story mode is very addictive ; Controls are very tight and comfortable ; Plenty of stuff to do

Sound quality is a bit lacking ; DS version has WiFi play, but the Wii version does not ; Wii version lacks several DS-exclusive tracks

This is an extremely fun game and I highly recommend it to just about any DS or Wii owner. If you have to choose, get the DS version if you don't mind the lower quality visuals.

MySims Racing

 

EA have done well with the MySims franchise on the Wii. The franchise is a very nice fit on the Wii, and while there have been some stumbles along the road, for the most part, the series has offered enjoyable family entertainment for the better part of...

Fantastic amount of customizable items ; Solid racing ; Visually on par with other games in the series ; Excellent control options ; 4-player multiplayer is well done

though doesn't make up for no online ; The collection missions can be a bit tedious at times ; Audio is nothing special ; Levels can be a little bland at times

The Wii version features a fairly lengthy single-player story mode. One of the town’s founders has gone missing, after being challenged to a race by the owner of an evil corporation. Since then, the town is a shell of its former self. That is, until...

MySims Racing

 

Racing has never been this SIMulated

MySims Racing is everything a seasoned gamer would have expected it to be: a generic racer that pulls elements from several different preexisting racers. However, if you expected the game to suffer in quality, think again, as MySims racing does provide...

MySims Racing

 

EA's cute Sims meet Mario Kart in this fun, but unoriginal racer.

MySims Racing is an unmistakable Mario Kart Wii rip-off with MySims characters. The controls, sense of speed, track designs and power-ups all feel similar. It may not be original (at all), but with so many similarities to Nintendo's great racer, MySims...
