MySims Agents officially announced for Wii and DS

Posted by James Newton

Not at all like Ocean's Eleven: The Game.

We brought you the first teaser of EA's forthcoming MySims Agents a few days ago, but now the game has officially gone public and the first few scant details have come to light.

Billed as an "action-puzzler", MySims Agents sees you putting together a motley crew of hackers, stealthy thieves and other sneakily-skilled Sims to take down an evil genius named Morcubus, who presumably wants to do something very bad to the world. There'll be plenty of customisation, cutesy characters and all the other elements of MySims games that make them such a natural fit for the world of international espionage. The DS version will play out a lot like previous portable MySims games, with puzzles to solve and ten minigames to play.

EA have clearly picked up on a gaping hole in the market for handheld cutesy minigame compilations, so you can all jump for joy when MySims Agents is released on Wii and DS on June 16th in the US, with European release dates to follow.

I've never been a fan of Sims games in the past due to the time suckage factor, but having thrown my lot in with Little King's Story and mastered the art of playing multiple games at once I'm more open to the idea.

The original My Sims seemed to have some rather serious problems with it that put me off; My Sims Kingdom was too similar to Little King's Story and sounded less appealing so I passed on that.

This sounds like it could potentially be my first Sims game, so I'm definitely interested to learn more about it.

I actually quite liked the first MySims game, apart from its chronic loading times which started to limit my enjoyment of it severely the more I played. I never tried MySims Kingdom either, and I certainly won't go anywhere near Kart or Party.

If you think about it, MySims was just a very clever way of EA being able to turn probably their biggest franchise into a separate sub-franchise they could farm out to make all manner of cash-ins on consoles. Clever beggars.
