  1. If only there were a way to make The Sims have a flavor that lasts longer than your average stick of gum. That would be a game worth buying.
  2. While this party pack might only have 40 items, many of which you can download, at the end of the day, when all your Sims are together surrounded by Christmassy deco - well, that's all that matters. Merry Christmas everybody!
  3. A poor showing. Costing £10 to purchase just the add-on pack it is overpriced for the extra content it provides. You can download a hell of a lot more extras from The Sims 2 community sites online and these are free in most cases.
  4. If you fancy the beautiful Christmas garlands or a customisable snowman or a Christmas tree... well, why not just head over to the Sims 2 site and download them. They've been up there for a year, after all. No, I'm not joking.

    To all those people who say you can just download it...well don't. It is much more fun to get it all on this one disk and for all the people who don't already have the Sims 2, they can buy the holiday pack and get both. We shouldn't put down the makers of this game for having Holiday Spirit, should we! Full Review »
