The MySims series, with its stumpy cartoon characters, started out as a sort of Sims-lite for younger players who didn’t care for building a virtual adult life when they hadn’t got a real one of their own yet. My Sims: Agents, a spy-based adventurer, gives gamers the opportunity to become a secret agent through the age-old medium of wandering wandering about, solving puzzles and collecting espionage - enhancing gadgets. Acute twist on both the Sims and James Bond, Agents is a charming new addition to the family.
