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.
Excerpt: A graduated Simulation. The Sims 3 has always had a strange absence. Babies would grow into children who attended school until their teenage years and then, suddenly, they could immediately enter the workforce. Apparently, Sims only reach as far as a GED. What happened to all those formative years, hopefully away from home, at the universitas magistrorum et scholarium , that place of knowledge, scholarship, and freedom.
Summary: Parents need to know The Sims 3: 70s, 80s, & 90s Stuff is an expansion disc or digital download, so you must already own The Sims 3 to play this extra content. The Teen-rated game has some suggestive scenes ("woohoo"-ing under the covers), kissing, some minor violence, and crude humor such as burping, flatulence, and vomiting.
Excerpt: As people, we all love the unexpected. It's new, it's different, it gives us something to talk about. When that novelty wears off though, the unexpected becomes just the opposite -- it becomes ordinary. That's the case with The Sims 3 and its latest expansion pack; Supernatural -- it takes one of the most novel parts of the formula -- the unexplained appearance of ghosts and other unworldly creatures and makes it part of the everyday experience.
The Sims 3 Supernatural Add-on – Review (Windows PC)
8 October 2012
Conclusion: I can really only recommend this to fans of the supernatural, as the expansion completely alters the game dynamics. If that’s you, then plenty of new modes and customizations make this expansion well worth the extra dough.
Conclusion: Overall, Supernatural feels like a fun expansion to the core Sims 3 experience, and something that’s worth checking out even if you’re not super vested in the series, like me. It’s a far enough departure from the norm that I found it to be a lot of fun to toy around with. I do wish that it broke away from the mold a little more than it does; after all, getting a 9-5 as a vampire isn’t all that exciting, and having to pay bills and keep up with the Joneses, along with...
Excerpt: In what appears to me my weekly Sims 3 expansion review, I get my freak on with Supernatural. The latest expansion is all about the freaky creatures that, in the last decade, have lost their scary nature and become pop figures with glittering skin and good intentions. What I wanted this expansion to be is a more hardcore Sims expansion, but what I ended up with is fluff.
