Excerpt: The Sims 2 Seasons is the fifth expansion pack to the sales-record-breaking The Sims 2 game. Seasons brings what the title implies - the four seasons - to the mix. It includes weather, gardening, fishing, and a few new career paths. These features may not sound like much, but they're enough to make this one of the best expansion packs in the series. First, let's start with the four seasons.
Excerpt: In their quest to make a game that is just as realistic as real life itself, EA Games have finally added the weather to their line of Sims games. It was actually advertised as a feature of Sims 2, but due to problems with raining indoors, the release has been put back to now, in expansion pack five. Was it worth the wait?
Excerpt: By now, you've probably heard about The Sims. It all started with a little idea of controlling the lives of autonomous characters called "sims," and it took off in a big way to become a best-selling game series on multiple platforms--and on the PC, the series became infamous for its many expansion packs. The Sims 2 Seasons is the latest one, and unlike the last few expansions, this one doesn't add a zillion ambitious new features that make the game more complicated.
Pros: New seasons add useful group activities, Fishing and farming offer a relaxing change of pace
Excerpt: Life can get rather boring for a Sim; every now and then they need something new to do. Thankfully over the past few years they have been given the opportunity to attend University and go out on the town in Nightlife . They also got a chance to make something of their lives and give themselves some form of a career in Open for Business and more recently Pets gave them the chance to play around with some cute animals.
Excerpt: Писать обзоры дополнений к The Sims – неблагодарное занятие. Все портит устоявшаяся репутация игры. Для кого-то «симы» давно стали воплощением алчности Electronic Arts. Кому-то они милей всего на свете, но бытует мнение, будто эта аудитория предпочитает «Стране Игр» дамские романы.
Pros: Изменения в геймплее оригинальной версии
Cons: Нововведения больше количественные, чем качественные., Можно совсем запутаться в предметах и параметрах.
