Excerpt: The Sims 2 Nightlife is the second expansion pack to the award-winning PC game, The Sims 2. The expansion adds an all-new "pleasure-seeking" life goal, as well as dating mechanics and an "attraction system" that will give the original game's quirky, gibberish-speaking characters even more ways to interact with each other and more. Find out more in this short review.
Excerpt: For a large percentage of The Sims 2 players, the game’s social interactions are the most enjoyable aspect of gameplay. Let’s face it, going to the bathroom and taking out the trash are not nearly as exciting as trying to score with your hot neighbor. If you count yourself as a member of this group, the The Sims 2 Nightlife is just the expansion game you’re looking for.
Conclusion: game screen in the "date meter" when you're interacting in a romantic way with another Sim, then there's chemistry there that could lead to a more serious physical relationship. If there's no bolt, the electricity's not there - yet. You can continue to woo that particular non-bolting Sim, but you'll have to be even more romantic than usual if you will have any chance of getting that romantic fire sparked.
Excerpt: The Sims 2 Nightlife, an introduction. With the fabulous success of The Sims 2 it was inevitable that a string of expansion packs would be released for the game. Part of what kept the original game interesting was the regular release of expansion packs that added new themes and contents. The first expansion for the sequel, The Sims 2 University, gave us the ability to send our Sims to university to obtain a degree and better career prospects.
Excerpt: I've always been a fan of The Sims, primarily because I could do stupid stuff and get away with it. I could get into fights with people just because I don't like what color they are wearing (all Sims beware, I don't like pink). The Sims 2 was a 3D version of the original Sims, plus all the expansion packs except for The Sims: Hot Date and The Sims: Vacation. One of the biggest problems with The Sims 2 was that there was no dating simulation.
