Summary: The Sims series will always have expansion packs. It's part of the experience to slowly add more content to the game. Usually these packs add active content like new town locations, new interactions, or new career paths for your sims. Seasons adds a little bit of this stuff, but it's mostly a passive expansion in that it adds things to the background of the sims' lives. Seasons mostly does what you would expect. It adds seasons, weather, and holidays to the game.
The Sims 3: Seasons Exapansion Pack – Review (Windows PC)

Conclusion: I can’t overstate how well seasons work within The Sims 3. All of the other extras work well and provide an excellent array of options to help enhance gameplay, even if not providing a handful of new careers or towns as in previous expansions.
Expansion pack encourages outdoor activities all year long.

Summary: Parents need to know that The Sims 3: Seasons is an expansion pack for The Sims 3 . Players must have a copy of the Sims 3 game in order to use this product. With this expansion, players can engage in several themed activities based on the time of year that it is in the virtual world. For example, during fall, they can carve a jack-o-lantern. There are also different "festivals" to attend for each season.
Excerpt: The Sims is a video game series well known around the world for taking real life and making it fun as a simulation that borders on parody and always provides some entertaining gameplay and funny interactions for all ages to enjoy. For as great of a game as The Sims is, the series has always missed the point where it comes to weather dramatically affecting gameplay while ignoring the seasonal cycles, but that's where the eighth expansion for The Sims 3 called The Sims 3...
Excerpt: Since The Sims 3 launched in 2009, Sims have vacationed in exotic lands, discovered new careers, mingled with celebrities and the supernatural, and maybe even adopted a pet or two. But. But! They’ve done it all to the backdrop of static weather. Each day had blue skies, green grass, and even temperatures. This all changes with The Sims 3: Seasons, the eighth expansion for the base game.
Pros: The appearance of weather, Showing off your stylish outerwear, Seasonal holidays and festivities
Cons: Intrusive ads for DLC, Some bugs are still not fixed, How often your Sims get sick
Excerpt: Since its release in 2009, The Sims 3 has seen a number of expansions and add-ons to enhance its core gameplay. Over its course, we've seen pets, new traits, items, clothing, careers, and even supernatural creatures all added to the game. In short, the game basically has it all. But until recently, The Sims 3 has lacked one vital feature: seasons.
Seasons biedt een shitload aan verbluffende en bizar gedetailleerde (atmo)sfeer, zonder dat de game er veel langzamer van wordt. Maar is dat 35 fucking euro waard? Dacht het niet, helemaal niet als je bedenkt dat The Sims 2 praktisch dezelfde add-on met dezelfde naam en content had. We worden genomen, mede-Simmers.
