  1. Dating is another significant aspect of play added to The Sims 2, and it certainly throws in an element of challenge and intrigue to the base game.
  2. The good news is that it has an abundance of new features that, rather than taking over the basic goals, instead complements them. It's an expansion that actually expands on the core game, so if you're getting a little bored with the basic package it's a good bet.

    Nightlife is certainly worth the money if you're the kind of player that loves the social aspect more than the house aspect of the game, but it's doesn't seem as dense an addition as "University" was.
  4. Wisely focuses on humankind's hedonistic tendencies, with less emphasis on acquisition and more on enjoying life outside the house.
  5. A solid expansion, although I really wouldn't call it a must-have because it's a little light on content for its price tag.
  6. 70
    "Minor" would be the best way to describe the changes in Nightlife, and only fans will likely lay hands on this copy. Hopefully the career-based third expansion will be Sim Revolution we've all been waiting for.
  7. There's no real added depth to the original gameplay, and behind the complex conversation options you'll find the same game you were playing before you installed the expansion. Except with more bowling. [PC Zone]

It's the coolest, Tim Laurence is the best produser!!!!!! Really game is amazing so as his ideas, there would never be our favourite sims if not him. We all shall thank him. And besides game cost only 35 dollars that's the cheepest thing for such a cool game. He is my star.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love from Russia! Expand

What can I say, I mean cars, dates and too many new clothes and objects to choose from. The cars mean that you can match your aspiration to your car. For example, a family sim gets the minivan and the sporty sim gets the sports porsche etc... One of the coolest parts is the new turn on and turn off option in Create-A-Sim. You can choose what attracts your sim to another and what repels them, fantastic! Definitely more worth while than Uni, purely because of the fact that Uni had to move you to another place entirely and lasted around 3 or less days of game play after waiting forever to play with it. Night Life on the other hand is something that you can use throughout the whole game, as long as you don't kill off all of the adult sims. Worth the money, certainly. 5 stars and 10 outta 10.
