Feb 6, 2013Unfortunately this new pack goes through the motions again, without adding too much validity to the franchise. On a brighter note, The Sims 3 70s, 80s & 90s Stuff Pack is quite affordably priced and if you grew up in the 70s, 80s or 90s, it's still worth checking out but don't expect to be blown away.

I was, however,Like most Sims 3 Stuff Packs, I didn't expect this one to be phenomenal whatsoever, as generally they aren't in my opinion. I was, however, expecting a little more than what was given. It appears that EA ignores the male sims in the game most of the time new content is added; maybe it's not as fun to make content for the men, but should they be excluded? Doubtful.
This stuff pack claimed to add content from the 70s, 80s, and 90s, all three with their own distinct style. Now the women basically received a fair amount of items scattered out over those decades (although very very cliché), however men received next to nothing. Two new tops, two new bottoms, about four or five outfits. Worse yet, unless you plan on having a sim who is also a rising rock star, then it's highly unlikely you will find any use at all for the content added.
As for the couple of new hairs and makeup added, they are very subpar. Again, not much use to the ordinary, everyday sim. Though perhaps that is the point of this stuff pack (to make rock sims instead of everyday sims). But in my opinion, if I can't use it on my legacy sims, then what use is it at all?
Now as for any of the other gimmicks or additions to the game ,I have not yet explored, so I have no opinion over. My main focus with this stuff pack was the clothes, but beings how the clothes fell flat, I can only assume the rest of the additions will follow suit.
I give the stuff pack a 3 out of 10, because there are at least two or three pieces of female clothing that was added to the game which I did like. I say get the Stuff Pack if you truly want to create a generic looking rocker from the past; otherwise, pass this Stuff Pack up.… Full Review »
