Summary: I love the Sims. Generations is cool, but the add-ons aren't spectacular, which is probably why it's one of the cheaper expansions. I played Sims side-by-side for a while with a friend who didn't have any extensions and the game wasn't that much different.
Summary: I bought this by accident thinking that it was the sims 3 actual game. After i installed the expansion pack, there really weren't too many new features. Just some new items, and they weren't that great. Its ok If you like that kind of thing though.
Summary: While this adds some fun animations and a few extras to the base game, Generations is a disappointing expansion pack full of glitches. My base game ran fine, even when I put in some user made custom content. Adding Generations (after removing said CC) didn't help my game run better.
Summary: One of the reasons that I was looking forward to getting this expansion pack is so I can control the "aging rate" of my sims. I no longer have to wait 60+ days for my sims to grow up. I can do it all in one day. :-)
Summary: I have been with The Sims franchise since the very first game and I have every installment, expansion and item pack. This is a fun expansion pack, but unlike Nightlife and Ambitions it does not contain an additional world or additional careers.
Summary: This isn't the best expansion pack for SIMS 3 thus far, or the even the best expansion pack SIMS has come out with at all, but its okay. Some of the new clothing and hairstyles are fun, but not too much more than what I was already playing. Wouldn't have bought it if I'd played it first.
Summary: When I first saw the trailer for The Sims 3: Generations and sent it onto my friends, one of them commented - 'What's different? Are you sure this is a new expansion?' And indeed, the trailer video doesn't really show any MAJOR new obvious element, like say, World Adventures or the forthcoming Pets.
