  • Summary: Enter the mysterious town of Moonlight Falls where strange things happen by the light of the moon. Create supernatural beings, from menacing werewolves and cackling witches to mischievous fairies and more intriguing vampires.

    All in all, Supernatural may be my favorite expansion so far for The Sims 3. It gives enough options so that you really try something new, though it does border on having too many options. While it doesn't add as many new gameplay mechanics as some other expansions, the additions are interesting and well crafted. No two people look for the same thing out of The Sims, but for me, if you're only going to buy one Sims 3 expansion, it should be this one.

    I've been playing Supernatural for the better part of a week now, and it's still surprising and delighting me with its cheery take on magic, horror and gothic. It's an expansion in the very best sense, and now up at the top of my list of Sims 3 must-haves.

    Just what the witchdoctor ordered: no matter what supernatural doppelganger – from the scary to the mysterious to the mischievous ‑ gamers choose, there is ample magically macabre monstrous adventures to explore in the eerie enclave of Moonlight Falls.

    While it might have its share of annoyances, the positives outweigh the negatives in The Sims 3: Supernatural. It's one of the strongest expansions for the core game yet, and might even give lapsed players a reason to return to the game.

    Overall, Supernatural feels like a fun expansion to the core Sims 3 experience, and something that's worth checking out even if you're not super vested in the series, like me. It's a far enough departure from the norm that I found it to be a lot of fun to toy around with.

    Despite some qualities, among them the new supernatural theme, enthusiasm is not really the word that comes directly to our mind while playing The Sims 3 : Supernatural. Of course, it is pleasant to play as a werewolf, or to create terrific potions that could turn our Sims into zombies. However, the surprise is no more, especially when you know a eighth expansion set will be released soon with not so many new features.

    Supernatural doesn't augment your Sims or make the neighborhood more interesting: it turns it into an unrecognizable mess that doesn't even come close to resembling the "life simulator" it's supposed to be.

    this expansion is great it adds sweet fairies and nice witches and warewolves to which can be furless if you choose them to be. once you get this you will wonder how you lived without them in your game. if you love supernatual things you will love this. its the small things that make this game so wonderful so if you expect to get millions out of an expansion then your just searching for quantity. sims 3 is quality not quantity Expand

    With tons of new features adding more variety and fun, whilst managing not to stray too far from what we are used to this is one of the best expansions for The Sims 3.
    EA are clearly aware of the glitches the game started with and have already fixed the most obvious problems. However the rest of the game offers so many fun new and magical interactions that make the game enchanting once again. EA weren't stingy when it came to the amount of new things that were added and for once the sim children were not ignored as they too can inherit powers and have new toys and outfits to choose from. This expansion is a great addition to the game and should provide any player with hours and hours of exciting new experiences and opportunities to live through their Sims.

    I can remember being excited for this game when I first saw it, but when you play the game barely anything is different it's the same as before just with different creatures to play as. Expand

    Played it for a while but don't like it. The supernatural things are a little away from the sims theme. And I seldom use the stuff this expansion provides during the game. Expand

    I've witnessed a lot of disappointments as a gamer, Lost Planet 2, Duke Nukem Forever, and recently Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. But now, The Sims 3: Supernatural is one of them. The concept of picking a supernatural being and living out life showed much promise. Unfortunately, this game falls short of that promise. Let us start with the good. It's a Sims game, there is a lot of variety and things to do. There are new things to do which add more variety. That's about it. The good things fail to outweigh the bad things. There are new things to expect such as, furniture, clothes, and hair; but none of those options really excited me. There are new "races" of playable werewolves and fairies. Again, these options did not excite me. There is a spell system but it's not as robust as it should be. Also, (and I also hope you never hear these words leave my mouth again) the zombies are so annoying that the game would be better off WITHOUT the zombies! RAM issues are also constant. I've had the game crash on me multiple times and the game stutters when things get crazy. If you're a Sims fan don't pick this up, just stick to The Sims 3 for a Sims fix.
