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: 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: The Sims 3 Generations looked like the answers to a lot of simmers dreams. More clothes for all ages, more stuff for kids to do, making family life more exciting and engaging in the game. There is even the addition of adding the ability for proud sim parents to document their most precious moments on video and watch them back on their on TV screens!

There is nothing you can't control from their looks, clothes, actions, friends, living quarters, job ect. Now for those who do know the series it may seem like the same old. That is because apart from slightly better graphics, updated library of props ect and a faster running system ...
Conclusion: It has always been widely considered that the game play was often limited for age groups under that of adults and this expansion pack has worked hard to correct that with new options, interactions and actives, but I think how you play the game depends on how much you get from this expansion pack.
