3.0 out of 5 stars Better than the other Fun Packs, but... November 15, 2006
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This is yet another overpriced "Fun" pack. I liked it better than the previous fun packs, but that's not necessarily saying much. If you already have Sims 2 Pets, this will feel like a letdown. I only bought it because I'm one of these Sims 2 fans who has to have everything. I did not get last year's Holiday Edition because I already had the base game and I couldn't get the separate download to work, so I don't really know if this "Fun" pack is the same, similar or otherwise to that edition. From the description of the Holiday Edition, it doesn't look like a huge difference, though. Now for some detail:

PROS:

* Nice Holiday decorations! Christmas is definitely the better represented holiday, but others, including the Oriental New Year are represented as well. Christmas trees, christmas lights, etc.

* Some of the new clothing is nice. I particularly like the Japanese Kimonos. The santa and elf suits look cool too.

* Some nice, new floor tiles and wall coverings that I'm actually using.

* Firecrackers!

CONS:

* As with the other "Fun" packs, this is way overpriced. Waiting for it to hit the bargain bin might be the better way to go.

* The non-Christmas holidays aren't nearly as well represented as Christmas. Some Halloween costumes would have been nice for one thing. I can also think of alot more that could have been done with Thanksgiving as well as the other holidays.

* No bug fixes.

* As mentioned above, it doesn't appear to be much different than last year's Holiday Edition (emphasis on the word appear since I don't own the Holiday Edition). If they are indeed identical then the price really is a rip off!

5.0 out of 5 stars I think it's worth the money spent December 1, 2006

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I had the Holiday edition base game originally and bought this for the extra stuff. I think it was worth it for not only the extra items, but also for the improvements Maxis made to some of the existing ones in the Holiday base game.

I also think that there is more than 20 extra items over the 40 the holiday base game had. I haven't actually counted them all, but with all of the new clothing, new decorating items (plants, wall hangings, knick-knacks, etc), and outdoor stuff both in buy and build mode, I'm pretty sure it exceeds 60. Maybe I'm wrong but it seems like a lot of new stuff!! All in all, I'm well pleased with what I got for the amount I spent. I didn't pre-order this one though, I waited until the price dropped a few dollars since it is a 'stuff pack' and not an expansion.

And for those of you who didn't have the Holiday edition base game and aren't already aware of this, don't forget to put out your new cornucopia in your kitchen, light your tree, make a holiday roast, and serve up some Santa cookies...you never know, Santa might just show up and leave your Sim some gifts :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Festive items but..... February 8, 2007
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
As in the Glamour Life Stuff pack & Family Fun Stuff pack this one doesn't give your Sims enough new items for the money. What you see on the cover of this 'Stuff' pack is basically what you get for the money. I ordered it from Amazon but, now I wish I would've waited for a Complete pack or just downloaded online. Granted tho, that the Christmas idea was a cute one. I just wish there were some more items to make this worth the bucks.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sims 2 Happy Holiday Stuff January 9, 2007

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
If you purchased the Sims 2 Holiday Party Pack last Christmas in 2005 (or the Sims 2 Holiday Edition in 2005 which is the same thing except it also contains the base game), then you likely already have the content in this CD. The Sims 2 Happy Holiday Stuff (2006), seems to be a collection of the same items from the 2005 release. Check into it yourself first just to make sure you're not buying the same things twice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Have a Simsational Holiday Season! January 16, 2008
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
"With reviews of stuff packs you often see multiple complaints regarding the amount of content versus the price. This is easily arguable and when comparing the amount of content in an expansion pack versus a stuff pack and then the price comparison you are indeed better off buying the expansions. BUT, sometimes you are in the market for something in particular. Yes, there are many custom content creators out there who can rival EA for quality and value, but not everyone is comfortable downloading custom content and others prefer knowing the content they get is going to be completely game compatible. That is when stuff packs are the most useful." --- quoted from my review of the Teen Style Stuff stuff pack.

Keeping that in mind Happy Holiday Stuff is my second stuff pack purchase. While currently this item is harder to find since its release was a long time ago, if you happen to find it and get it for the price I did ($9.99) this is a nice addition to your game. My main interest in buying this stuff pack was to add a small amount of game compatable holiday stuff without adding too much. There are many great custom content creators but due to slow loading times I have cut back and the stuff packs have helped add a little extra without adding slowness.

In this stuff pack we find items for primarily Christmas but also Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hannukah, Kwanzaa, traditional New Year and Chinese New Year. For the most part I won't use much outside of the Christmas items which are primarily decor like nutcrackers and wreaths. The clothing in this pack is really yucky, the only clothing item I really like is the baby new year wear for toddlers. The clothing most will not realize is included and many may want are Cheongsams in lovely colors from rich red to royal blue.
