Pros:

  • A bunch of new mechanics and items for sims of all ages, Imaginary friends and childrens' costumes are adorable, Pulling pranks and using the video camera are fun.
  • Greater depth of gameplay for Child and Teen Sims; new Day Care profession is fun; integrated well into the existing experience rather than feeling like a new game.

Cons:

  • Doesn't have much impact on the overall experience, Proms and other features are missed opportunities, Overpriced for what you get.
  • Not as flashy or as obvious an improvement as previous expansion packs; could be argued that this pack's content should have been included in the main game, especially for the price.

If you’re still playing The Sims 3, Generations offers just enough amusing new content to keep you occupied for another few months until the next add-on. If not, we’re not sure it really does quite enough new to draw players back into the adorable and...

To answer my original question: as a stand-alone expansion, The Sims 3: Generations leaves much to be desired. After playing it, I found myself wondering what is keeping EA from releasing the Pets, University and Open For Business expansions...

Generations (Expansion Pack)The latest expansion for The Sims 3 "Generations", is all about pranks and fun for your Sims characters and even though this may not be a huge addition to the franchise, I had a ball engaging in all these non-Sim like...

The majority of the new features introduced in The Sims 3: Generations are enjoyable enough to fiddle with, but none of them are major game changers. Greater depth to the different life stages provides enough fresh material to make it worth revisiting...

Lev Livet går i en helt anden retning i forhold til sine slagbrødre, der tidligere har budt på muligheden for at rejse, tage i byen og vælge nye karrierespor. Målet denne gang synes nemlig at dække over, at tilføje en lang række af passive nydelser....

Wer von einem "Sim"-Add-on zwangsläufig die Erweiterung um eine neue Nachbarschaft erwartet, wird von "Lebensfreude" vielleicht enttäuscht sein. Wer jedoch Spaß an der Interaktion zwischen den Geschlechtern und den Generationen hat, bekommt in...
