  1. It adds seasonal weather, crop farming, and some new group activities that can actually make the challenging gameplay of Sims 2 a more relaxed pastime. For players looking for a slower-paced experience that doesn't require you to keep track of the ins and outs of an in-game business--or constantly watch a hyperactive pet--this is a good thing.
  2. The weather effects are quite wonderful, and there's something perfectly cosy about having a snowstorm fluttering outside the window, but they only change the game as much as you want them to. After the tenth rainstorm, the novelty starts to wane.

    Some nice cosmetic effects, new jobs and, er clothes await you the, Sims fans. If you really have to. And we know that some of you do. You sickos. [Apr 2007, p.73]

    All of which leaves this expansion pack as probably the least essential yet. It won't disappoint any fans, sure, but there's little to make lapsed devotees come in from the cold. [May 2007, p.89]

    As far as Sims expansions go though, it's mediocre. I mean, come on, it's bloody weather...And gardening. What's next? "The Sims 2: Picking Your Arse?" [June 2007, p.86]

    Sure it looks the same, sounds the same, and plays about the same, but it's a whole new world out there, a world where nature reigns supremeSure it looks the same, sounds the same, and plays about the same, but it's a whole new world out there, a world where nature reigns supreme and your sims must bow to its forces or suffer the consequences.

    Thank you Seasons! This expansion offers so much that I was hoping for, and so much more that I didn't expect! Great fun, the snow is so Thank you Seasons! This expansion offers so much that I was hoping for, and so much more that I didn't expect! Great fun, the snow is so cool! (I want to use all caps there!). You should see the pool that I built on my lot, and snowball fights are the best. Thank you Seasons! Full Review »

    Seasons is a really good expansion for The Sims 2, that adds seasons and new stuff.

The new objects are really creative, and adds some special things to The Sims 2. And, we can't forget, the seasons. Changing weather is a really nice feature, but it doesn't change the game that much. Sure, weathers features some enjoyable possibilities, but the point is, it feels the same as the original game. Still, worth it. 76 out of 100 Full Review »
