This would have been a perfectly respectable SimCity game if the controls had been given more attention. The deep gameplay options and cool disasters are all here, but the actual creating is a hassle because the remote both places objects and scrolls the map. Why couldn’t the nunchuk have been used for the map? The developers missed a good opportunity here because the Wii should be a good system for PC-like sims where the remote replaces the mouse. I like the MySims character designs and I’m all for personality, but advisors should actually provide some advice. Following last year’s disappointing SimCity DS, it looks like Electronic Arts might be losing its way with this franchise.
