In this paper we provide a brief survey of agent based simulation (ABS) platforms and evaluate two of them – NetLogo and MASON – by implementing an exemplary scenario in the context of human behavior modeling. We define twelve evaluation points, which we discuss for both of the evaluated systems. The purpose of our evaluation is to identify the best ABS platform for parametric studies (data farming) of human behavior, but we intend to use the system also for training purposes. That is why we also discuss one of serious game platform representatives – VBS2.
