  1. Computer Games Magazine
    With more careers, more objects, and a better-organized option control, Unleashed allows more versatility and easier movement among features. [Mar 2003, p.80]
  2. Slowdown and jerky animations seem more prevalent as each new expansion pack is installed; an understandable symptom of the now massive amount of objects and interactions, but less excusable considering that the system requirements for Unleashed are nearly double those of the original game.

    Yes, The Sims Unleashed brings pets into the world of The Sims, but it does so in such a stubbornly rigid fashion that the end result is a bit disappointing.
  4. Ynlike "Hot Date" and "Vacation," which gave you a sort of a goal, this latest expansion pack somehow takes you back to the game’s basics, with no particular goal in mind.
  5. 60
    New content is nice, but this piecemeal addition at $20 a pop of what should be sequel content is starting to feel more like gouging than a company generously giving its loyal customers what they want.
  6. 50
    While The Sims: Unleashed offers plenty of new features, game objects and gameplay changes, it doesn't significantly add pleasure to the game, which is a real disappointment.

    Rocks but animals sometimes make the guests mad so u can't make that many friends.

    The best expansion pack I've ever played in the Sims series!
