    FreeTime is so rich with content and gameplay features that I rate it right up there with Seasons as one of my must-have expansion pack titles.
  2. Overall, from its equal treatment of Sims in different stages of life to its smooth integration with all previous expansion packs, FreeTime is very well-rounded and better thought-out than many of the previous expansions.

    Free Time will go down as one of the most significant expansions for The Sims 2. It definitely blows away "Bon Voyage," and is arguably even slightly better than "Seasons" simply because of the new content.

    For the Sims 2 fan whose enthusiasm has been decaying in the six months since Bon Voyage, prepare to be bombarded by new things. And for those gamers who haven’t yet experienced the world’s highest grossing game series, perhaps The Sims 2 is now exhaustive enough to deserve a second glance. [May 2008, p.61]
  5. What FreeTime offers is good stuff. The clubs are nice but the real benefit is linking neighborhoods and terrain modification.

    FreeTime isn't bad. Actually, it's very good. [June 2008, p.80]
  7. Free Time is so uninspiring compared to some other Sims add-ons. The combination of developing your hobbies, making a career and maintaining your Sims is a difficult one. The add-on adds little to the concept. Only for Sims-addicts.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Tempo Livre é a expansão mais mediana do The Sims 2. Mas mesmo assim, ela é ótima! Ela acrescentou vários recursos novos ao jogo, dando a ele um acabamento melhor nas áreas de interações com os sims e com os objetos. Will Wright comandou muito bem a geração. Expand
