  1. Practice makes perfect, and EA/Maxis have cooked up a godly tool that’ll get your feet wet in the dating pool without getting your face slapped.
  2. If you haven’t downloaded the nude patch yet, go and grab it off the Web right now. Hot Date, like most things, is better with a little nudity! [Mar 2002, p.80]
  3. Hot Date's real additions are its expanded social options and its new downtown area...[It] does an extremely good job of making The Sims a more interesting game.
  4. Hot Date adds an obscene amount of voyeuristic addiction to an already proven immersive experience.
  5. With the 40 plus new social interactions you have many options when it comes to making and maintaining friends both downtown and in your neighborhood.
  6. Adds some needed worldly interaction into The Sims, which is a welcome addition to the game.
  7. One of the best and most addictive sim-games available at present, and this expansion pack is definitely better value for your simoleans than any of the other add-ons have been.

    This is a good game and is really fun you can do so much different stuff than on just the original one. I like the sex part.

    This game sux! It's impossible to get a date, the sound-effects are too un-realistic (when they kiss it sounds like there having seX).
