  • The Sims 2 Celebration Stuff Pack is something nice for the game, but nothing really interesting is added

      The Sims was the bestselling PC game of all time, and its sequel, the Sims 2, does not disappoint. In this game, you control Sims, people that are just regular, ordinary people who live out their lives until your command. Of course, that means that you can make them anything but ordinary.

      In the Sims 2 Double Deluxe, you can get what are normally three separately sold games for a lower price than the original Sims 2 CD itself. Trust me, that Sims 2 original was a pain to find and it was pretty shocking to find that Double

      Deluxe was at least three Canadian dollars cheaper, when you’re actually getting more with Double Deluxe. I found that a pretty good deal.

      The two extra games (well, not really, one is an expansion pack and the other is a stuff pack) are Sims 2 Nightlife and Sims 2 Celebration Stuff. In Sims 2 Nightlife, a “Downtown” destination is added, along with the new feature of cars. There’s a hatchback, a truck, a minivan, a sedan and a sports car for you to choose from.

      The character species that comes with the Nightlife expansion pack is the vampire, which is personally my favorite of all the species, mostly because they’re capable of keeping their needs level the entire time they sleep. You can hardly get any better than that. The downtownie vampires are also extremely cool, since they walk around all over the place biting their own arm, and go BLEH! at you occasionally. When the sun rises, they bolt out of the lot faster than you can say “garlic breath”. It’s pretty entertaining to watch.

      The Sims 2 Celebration Stuff Pack is something nice for the game, but nothing really interesting is added. It’s the cheapest stuff ...

      pack at approximately $10.99 retail price (and probably the least bestselling, which is why Maxis is practically handing them out with the Sims 2).

      There’s really not much to add with this pack, as compared to the other more hefty stuff packs. There are some nice headdresses for brides located under hairstyles, and some really good suits and dresses for you to choose from. Their suits are the only Maxis-made ones that I actually like, and my favorite is the tiny little suit they have for toddlers. It makes them look absolutely adorable. There are also some new variants

      of items such as BBQ stoves, wedding arches and some wedding decorations. All in all, nothing big, but it’s nice to get something more for your money.

      So, if you’re a fan of The Sims, or looking to get yourself a good Sims game at a good price (right now, they’re even cheaper since Sims 3 was recently released) then go to your local store and pick up a copy in the electronics department. They’re reasonably priced and make for hours of fun. After all, where else could you be able to control people’s lives without any objection from them?
