    The Sims 4: City Living encourages you to be constantly out and doing things. In a word, it is refreshing. It's precisely what I felt was missing from the base game of The Sims 4 and from every expansion since. My only true criticism of it is that it's an expansion. I wish that the base game could've felt as real as City Living does, and I wish I didn't have to spend $40 on top of the $40 for The Sims 4. If you've been holding off on The Sims 4 until That One Expansion, City Living is the one.

    City Living gives us a township full of life that’s easy and fun to explore. With new ways to do jobs and fun interactions with neighbours, this is one expansion any Sims lover should add to their collection.

    The Sims 4: City Living is an excellent addition to the core, and possibly the best apartment-themed expansion in series history. It’s also the best add-on The Sims 4 has produced yet. Many of its ideas are recycled from previous iterations, but what’s new takes the series forward in interesting ways.

    The Sims 4: City Living gets an absolute recommendation for fans looking for a new way to play.

    City Living enhanced considerably the gameplay of The Sims 4 and adds an excellent expansion to the core. It is clearly visible what has been the starting idea, provided by the experience of The Urbz for PS2 but declined in a newer and fresher form.

    The Sims 4 City Living creates new and meaningful gameplay on the Sims formula, and is the best expansion The Sims 4 has seen to date. It has smart gameplay, new ways to interact with the world, and an amazing new setting. If living the city life sounds fun, you cannot go wrong with City Living, however if that doesn’t intrigue you, there is not much here for you.

    City Living is a weak expansion for The Sims 4. Even though its ideas and base are good, Maxis has not reached the goal of creating a good quality DLC.

This expansion makes the game closer to what it should have been at launch, and it is finally at a point where it is kind of enjoyable. I recommend waiting for the steam sales where the Sims 4 and each expansion is 75% off, though. Expand

With each expansion that has been released, we've got a good amount of content, that has added a great deal of game-play (camping, restaurants, active careers, spas, clubs) and added new worlds along with it. These packs have given hours worth of entertainment, in either Game Pack or Expansion format. City Living, on the other hand, has got to be the most disappointing expansion so far, and would have been better suited to being a "Game Pack", rather than an expansion, because it was too expensive for what it added. Apartments are OK, but build restrictions mean most wont be moving from their 6 story house to 2 floor apartment. The bars are very bland, with no live music, except for the odd karaoke singer. The activities will give you a couple hours of new game-play before you are done, unless you like spending hours protesting or being a "living statue". The new careers are OK, but are never going to compete with the more active "Get to Work" careers, or running your own business. Expand

In addition I was really let down by the fact that you have no real build options. You cannot build apartment buildings in other cities or for that matter build any more in San Myshuno town. You can't build apartments from scratch like you could in The Sims 2.
    Perhaps the most interesting thing was the "work from home" option, but as this only applies to the new professions added with the expansion, it doesn't really add that much to the game as a whole.
    Get it on sale if you like, but it's definitely not worth full price.

    Only made for money and nothing else. There is a new city and that's it pointless thing. EA loves money and that's why they make these things.........
