  1. Sure it looks the same, sounds the same, and plays about the same, but it's a whole new world out there, a world where nature reigns supreme and your sims must bow to its forces or suffer the consequences.

    There is no question that the previous expansion packs (especially "University" and "Pets") wore out their welcome after a while. However, you’ll be playing with the effects of Seasons probably for the rest of your life – or if/until a "The Sims 3" comes out.
  3. If nothing else, the changing of the seasons and their impact on your quirky Sims add even more variety and life to an already amusing people simulator.
  4. It has well-balanced gameplay, and the fishing and gardening allow your Sims to finally relax and enjoy the great outdoors instead of constantly being in motion. Unfortunately, with all of these new features come even longer loading times.
  5. The Sims 2: Seasons isn't anything groundbreaking, but weather effects, gardening and other new stuff are fun enough to make it worthwhile for any Sims fan. [Nov 2007]

    Thank you Seasons! This expansion offers so much that I was hoping for, and so much more that I didn't expect! Great fun, the snow is so cool! (I want to use all caps there!). You should see the pool that I built on my lot, and snowball fights are the best. Thank you Seasons! Full Review »

    Seasons is a really good expansion for The Sims 2, that adds seasons and new stuff. The new objects are really creative, and adds some special things to The Sims 2. And, we can't forget, the seasons. Changing weather is a really nice feature, but it doesn't change the game that much. Sure, weathers features some enjoyable possibilities, but the point is, it feels the same as the original game. Still, worth it. 76 out of 100 Full Review »
