The Urbz: Sims in the City

This is, yet again, another entry in The Sims series of games. This one is a bit more complex, in the sense that you can work all new jobs, get outfits native to the particular location you are at, etc. But the premise is still, more or less, the same. At each location, you have a set number of goals to accomplish and achieving these goals unlocks new items.
-The main Sim you create starts out in SimCity, at an apartment in downtown SimCity. Soon, the city's most popular Sim, Darius, comes to greet your Sim at their apartment. He mentions that he has a secret machine that can only be fixed if the Sim you control finds all the parts and defeats all the villains in each of the various districts. Some of the districts share the same villain. And to defeat them, you must earn a special social interaction. When you defeat all the villains, you are invited to Darius' penthouse, where you are greeted by the bosses of each district

-In each district, you must interact with various Sims to build their reputations, called "Rep" in the game. This is nothing more than a simple measure of how popular your Sim is. The higher their reputation goes, the more districts, locations they can unlock
-Just like any of the Sims games, you have needs to fulfill. They are Hunger, Comfort, Toilet, Sleep, Hygiene, Fun, Environment. You can also gain skills by playing mini-games. You can earn money through the various jobs at the various districts in the city, but you will also have to pay rent to Darius. Not surprisingly, depending on the district you are in, you will have goals particular to that location
-There are 9 total districts in this game. Each district has its own Sims, who each have their own Social Interactions you can unlock. There is also a job at each district that you must earn three promotions in to move on. Each location has a small bedroom area for your Sim to sleep in
