3.0 out of 5 stars Real Life Stuff July 7, 2008
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The newest in the Sims Stuff Packs came right on the heels of a visit to IKEA for me - and it was definitely cool to see real life (purchasable) items for my Sims homes. It's neat that the items are all affordable - just like in real life - and that they generally match.

The items included in this pack generally fall into one of three categories - bedroom, living room, or decor. If you feel like you've got enough items for these areas, then perhaps the IKEA pack is not for you. There are no new Create-A-Sim features for obvious reasons, although somewhat surprisingly there are wallpapers and floors that should compliment your new decor. The colour scheme is mostly red, black & white, so if you're not a fan of a more modern look & feel, again, you may want to skip this one.

The number one complaint I've seen to date is the fact the beds are extremely low in values (i.e. energy & comfort) and therefore not worth putting in homes. While I agree that this was disappointing for my more established sims, it was awesome news for my newbie sims that are just starting out and want a nicely furnished home. My complaint associated with beds would be the fact this was a great opportunity to add some more bed coverings - since IKEA has a great line of them - yet none were included.

Overall I thought the items in this pack were nice and relatively different than what's already included from other Sim games. There definitely could have been items, and a higher-end bed would have been nice, but overall this is a good pack if you like to create new sims who need to decorate on a budget.

Also - kudos to IKEA, great integrated branding :)

2.0 out of 5 stars Lacking in Stuff July 1, 2008
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Stuff packs are packs Maxis produces to add additional content to the Sims2 franchise. Some packs are better than others. This pack was rather mediocre. First, there really is nothing that is all that great. The furniture is cute, but... er... Rather plain, and the accessories would suit any modern home or college dorm room, but most sims will soon be pining for the more comfortable stuff that costs more simoleans.

In general, I might consider this good value if there was about twice as much content and some new stuff in the high comfort bracket. I'd pick this up in the bargain bin, but this is by far the worst 'stuff pack' around. Disappointing

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth it July 6, 2008
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm a definite Sim-aholic, but I was very disappointed in this pack. Not much stuff, especially for the number of items at an IKEA store. You couldn't furnish a whole house in IKEA stuff with this expansion pack. I think they really missed the mark on this -- they could have sold us more REAL stuff for our REAL houses by putting a lot of stuff in this pack for our sims. I kept looking for basics that I had bought for my house in this pack, and didn't find them.

I also half thought that for stuff you had to put together (like bookcases) that the Sims would put it together themselves and get mechanical points for it. That seems to me the point of having an IKEA expansion pack, right?

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad! June 27, 2008
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Well, I just bought this stuff pack the other day, and frankly, I find that it's not half bad! I don't care for the new wallpapers much, but that's just me.

The person before me mentioned that they could not tell the old stuff from the new. Here's a way to make that easier. All you have to do is go into "Buy Mode" and below "Sort by Room" and "Sort by Function", you'll find an icon that looks like a folder. That is where your IKEA stuff collections (as well as other themed collections) will be stored so as to get to it more easily. Now, for those of you Sims 2 veterans out there, you already know this, but in writing a good review, I feel it's helpful to explain as much as one can.

I guess the only thing I was disappointed about was the fact that the IKEA stuff pack did not come with a pre-made IKEA store lot, the way H&M stuff came with an H&M store.

As far as the issue with SecuROM goes, I had no problems installing this game, OR playing it. That being said, the computer I play it on is NOT connected to the internet, and it is a fairly new computer (only a few yrs. old). I suppose it all depends on the individual's computer.

Anyway, I hope this review was helpful to you all. Have a great day, and Happy Simming!

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best stuff packs November 11, 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I've always thought the stuff packs were overpriced, I still think $19.99 is too much for the amount of stuff in the pack. But if you can find a good sale I'd say that this stuff pack should be first on your buy list.

Since buying Ikea Home Stuff I think I've used the items in most of my homes. It is a fantastic pack to have if you have Apartment Life too. It's a great way to furnish apartments on a budget.

So don't buy at the full retail price, look for a sale and you'll be quite pleased with the stuff pack.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not alot for the price.... July 31, 2008
By FedUp
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
As an owner of many Sims and Sims2 games, i am a rue lover of the creations, however this StuffPack left me wanting, especially considering the Sims2Store opened allowing people to purchase StuffPack items individually. The IKEA furniture is mostly not very attractive compared to other furniture sets in the Sims universe. If you are a collector who wants an entire library, get it. Otherwise go to the SimsStore and just pick out the few pieces you like.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not happy with IKEA home stuff
Did not have very many new items, was not worth the money paid for it. For that price, we should have received a ton of new things. Disappointed to say the least.
