The Sims have moved to the City, and they need you to work on their reputation.

The Sims is one of the most popular games ever conceived, and has one of the broadest fan bases of any videogame. Expect that fan base to grow and grow as the Urbz moves the Sims into the City, where life moves fast and your Urbz' reputation is everything.

Urbz are bolder and boast more attitude than their Sims predecessors, and you can propel them to success in a variety of new careers. Allow their success to shape their look, visiting the City's hotspots and earning new skills and items for their glamorous pad.

Your goal is to take your Urbz to the very pinnacle of urban living, with access to the most exciting places and people. Your path to success is dictated by the choices you make, from where to live and work to your Urbz' look - which you have more control over than ever.

Amazing new graphics and audio make the City a buzzing, non-stop place to live, and with exclusive mixes from the Black Eyed Peas, it's on the cutting edge of the music industry too.

You can even add to the glamour in the ultimate way by putting your face in the game with your EyeToy! Once you've progressed sufficiently, you'll see your face up in lights on the billboards and ads around the city. Experience the thrill of fame and success with the Urbz!
