  • Summary: Play with the change of seasons! With The Sims 3 Seasons Expansion Pack, you can let your Sims swim in the ocean on a hot summer day, bob for apples in the autumn leaves, test their snowboarding skill on the half pipe or welcome spring showers with a walk in the rain and a colorful umbrella. All-new activities, like soccer, and big seasonal festivals and celebrations bring the spirit of each season to life. Your Sims can pucker up at the kissing booth at the spring festival or see what Halloween surprises await in the haunted house. Dress for the weather with seasonal fashions ranging from raincoats to snow gear. With new foods, decor and weather effects, your Sims can enjoy the bounty and beauty of the ever-changing seasons and play with life like never before! Expand

    While some expansion packs in the past might have been lacking in content, The Sims 3 Seasons truly expands the game beyond its base experience.

    It's not the biggest expansion for Sims 3, but if you're trying to build an interesting, dynamic world for your little pixel people, it may just be the most important.

    If EA can do one thing right, it's to again bring innovations to The Sims 3 players.

    Seasons is to The Sims what MSG is to cooking (minus the possibly toxic side effects): it enhances the overall experience. Even if you've played it to death already, the simple application of weather and seasonal content guarantees plenty more mileage from the original game.

    It's a solid gateway expansion that builds on the rules without overwhelming you, but still adds enough variety that you'll never want to play without it.

    In short, this expansion falls slightly short of how interesting and deeply embedded the Supernatural expansion was. That said, Seasons supplies a depth to what can feel like an endless sunny crawl of hours and minutes in The Sims 3. For that, the change of pace is well worth the price of admission.

    I never feel like I am doing anything new. Sure, there are new animations, but the gameplay is always the same. Click on a thing, pick the thing you want to do, and watch something happen. A lot of the time the resulting actions are never that visibly different. It's great that the sims can do new stuff, but I really want EA to make me feel like I am doing something new.

    One of the best expansions in my thought. But it should be included in the original sims. A expansion for four seasons is just too expansive for the users. Expand

    Definitely a game changer. Weather in general is such an overlooked concept that once you have it, you can't imagine how you played without it. Turning every week (even if you make seasons longer than a week) into new experience instead of drudging on the next few days. Expand

    Unlike other expansion packs, instead of adding just one new feature, this expansion pack is made out of little changes to everything. Weather is such an important factor in life but it is so overlooked. Imagine life with no weather? Not very life like.

    Instead of one long season with nothing interesting to do, Season's offers new events every few days (depending on how long you set the season for). This helps keep the game interesting.

    This is a great expansion pack and a must have for hard-core Simmers!!
