MySims Kingdom is a more purposeful game than its predecessor, which did suffer from a lack of structure from time to time. Perhaps if anything, this has gone a little too far the other way – there were times when we were crying out for a little more artistic licence. That said, it’s possible – likely, even – that levels increase in scope as the game goes on.
But if you want a freeform MySims, there’s already one on the shop shelves, next to Cooking Mama and a Lilt can that some ill-mannered oik has abandoned. Kingdom is instead a charming, amusing objective-driven take on the concept, and it’s a delight to play.
