    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. 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

    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.

    Unlike Sims 2 "University," which added a whole new age, new careers, and new ways to radically change your Sims, Nightlife doesn't change Sims 2 with any bold strokes. Still, just about every feature added in the expansion works and works well, enhancing if not revolutionizing the game.
  3. The expansion adds a few things that help make the game seem more goal-oriented and a few things that are just plain weird--but it does have some neat new tricks to keep fans of The Sims interested.
