Xbox: The Sims Bustin Out (COMPLETE)


Originally a hardcore PC offering, Maxis’ Sims series first debuted as a typical isometric strategy game. It was remarkably popular, and soon played host to a great number of add-on packs and expansions. But it was only in early 2003 that the franchise broke free of its PC restraints and became available in full 3D for current generation consoles. Again, it was massively popular. But it doesn’t stop there, as Electronic Arts brings us the latest console game on Xbox. In the beginning, Bustin’ Out charges players with the sizeable task of creating their own Sim. In a highly customisable game, players are free to change all manner of physical features that include eye colour, hair colour, hair style, the nose, the mouth and build. But the options don’t stop there. Players must also give their virtual offspring personality traits that can alter they way they behave throughout the game and even affect their posture. Creating a Sim is by no means a trivial affair, and in many respects it can change how you progress through the game. Where many of the previous Sims games were ongoing, with no real conclusion, Bustin’ Out has a series of goals that must be met in order to `finish’ the game proper. The main game mode sees players choosing one of seven distinguished career paths for their newly created Sim. Jobs include Gangster, Athlete, Mad Scientist and Fashion Victim, all of which come with a series of objectives. The aim of the game is to be promoted in your relevant field until you’re a millionaire complete with mansion. It sounds simple enough, yes, but the personalities afforded your Sim have a direct effect on gameplay. For example, a Sim with social difficulties would have a hard time in showbiz. It’s up to you how you progress through the game. The inclusion of new locations and a variety of vehicles are welcome additions to the Sims world and offer a greater sense of freedom. Players can now visit mystery locations such as “The Octagon” in an entertaining if far-fetched game world. There’s even a high-res option available for Xbox owners. Bustin’ Out is undoubtedly the most accomplished Sims game we’ve seen since it debuted in 2000. It’s 3D, it’s entertaining, and it’s a great sign of things to come.
