The Sims 3: University Life
2 September 2013
Summary: The Sims 3: University Life is expansion pack number nine for The Sims 3 , and it's essentially a re-hash of the University expansion for The Sims 2 . If you decided today you wanted to start playing The Sims 3 and get all of the expansions, you would have to spend around $449.82. That's insane and it makes getting all of the content for the game almost impossible.
Conclusion: The expansion discounts the great things it has to offer by providing a limited format for achieving degrees. The benefits to receiving scholarships and degrees can’t be overstated, but it does require multiple trips to University to perform similar tasks each time. The addition of social groups and smart phones is part of what makes the expansion have lasting value. This is a title that offers interesting ways to build upon the personality of your Sims.
Excerpt: The long awaited The Sims 3 University Life has finally arrived for PC and Mac from publisher EA. The newest expansion takes young adult Sims out of the life they have known and throws them into the real world on campus at a local university. Playing The Sims 3 University Life is easily comparable with the way you already play The Sims 3 . Students will still need to eat, sleep, clean and the usual tasks, and work has been replaced with going to class.
Excerpt: University was an extremely fun time for me. I spent six months there before I realised I wasted my father’s money. It is with regret that I look back at that time. Maybe I should have tried harder. Maybe there is a lesson here for the rest of you. So when I was given the opportunity to fill some very big shoes (a size 13, Oltman, really?) and continue the legacy of The Sims reviews with the University Life expansion pack, I literally jumped at the chance.
Conclusion: "...the expansion ends up feeling like an isolated experience instead of a cohesive addition to the core game." "The classes, parties, finals, streaking, and keg stands are great touches...
Pros: Keg parties, streaking, and other college-themed acts of debauchery, Climbing the social ladder to earn your dream job, A variety of new activities on and off campus
Cons: Being isolated from the main game, Glitches that range from bizarre to aggravating, Fast-forwarding through classes to get to the actual gameplay
Conclusion: The Sims 2 с ее бесконечным количеством аддонов — поистине золотое дно для Electronic Arts . Это настоящий сундук с идеями, из которого разработчики раз за разом, нисколько не стесняясь, извлекают основу для разнообразных дополнений к The Sims 3 . Вот и теперь один из самых удачных аддонов ко второму изданию The Sims плавно перекочевал в третье.
Pros: новая иерархия; множество необычных заданий; интересные навыки; забавные персонажи-растения.
