You have loads of new objects for your kitchen and bathrooms to make them romantic or stylish. And the Sims benefit too with new hair styles, bathrobes and pajamas (finally adults get new jammies that don't look like like long underwear), and, of course, new wardrobe. Even 2 new houses to fit the romantic or modern mood.
At this point, there's very little that I could say is bad about the new expansion, however, with so many new objects for your Sims, you might find yourself not knowing where to begin. But hey, them's the breaks.
Overall, while nothing completely extraordinary about the newest pack, I have to agree that your Sim game library will definately benefit.
The items are more modern, and probably account for the most coordinated group of The Sims 2 objects EA Games/Maxis has ever put out. I was under the impression for years now that Maxis employees were all locked in separate rooms and given separate assignments and not allowed to know what their co-workers were creating so nothing would be able to match!
So it was a nice surprise to find coordinating appliances and floor and wall treatments.
Do you have the Seasons and FreeTime Expansion Packs installed? If you do, you will find that the new interactions that these two add-ons bring to the game are *not usable* on Kitchen and Bath Interior Design Stuff pack objects.
That's right - if you have Seasons, you can't get leftovers out of the new K&B fridges. If you have FreeTime, you can't Tinker with any of the K&B appliances or fixtures.
And because it is a Stuff Pack, EA Games does not provide a patch. Your best bet is to download a patch from a third party custom content site. I had to use object editor tools to fix the interactions on custom fridges I had. There is a patch out for FreeTime that might correct this, but I'm not sure since I had already fixed it by another method by the time the patch was put out by Maxis/EA.
I somehow expected better from Maxis fridges, especially since Seasons and FreeTime have been out long before Kitchen & Bath was released.
While not a show stopper for some, it was sloppy work by Maxis/EA to not make the objects fully compatible with other The Sims 2 expansions they had already published.
EDIT: While I hand corrected the interactions on custom fridges, I was not about to do that to the maxis objects. There is a creator out there called "Lord Darcy" who does make patches to Maxis created/broken objects. You can google this name with "The Sims" and find his fixes easily.
That being said, there's a small issue that seems to indicate a rather sloppy oversight. The refridgerators do not have the options from Seasons to get leftovers and they do not have the options from Free Time to make snack platters. You'll need Lord Darcy's fix from MoreAwesomeThanYou to be able to have those options. Would be nice if EA provided a fix but they never fixed the Celebrations Stuff wedding arch so that it could be used for weddings on community lots (a feature added with Bon Voyage), the Teen Style Stuff computer is missing options included in other expansions, and the Glamour Life special TV you could get from BestBuy is missing Free Time options to watch movies. I'd be surprised if they fix this. Luckily they've all been fixed by Lord Darcy though.
That being said, it's still a pretty nice stuff pack. EA, in the future would you please check stuff like this? Seems to show a real lack of consideration for your fans that you didn't take 5 minutes to check that options from previous expansions would be available on the new objects.
The idea this time around is to provide users with (supposedly) four new sets - romantic kitchen & bath, and modern kitchen & bath. My disappointment comes from the extreme amount of overlap between these four seemingly different themes. Aside from that, the new objects aren't even all that different than existing objects! The 'modern' shower is a simple black shower identical to the high-end shower that comes with the base game. The new 'modern' kitchen set looks suspiciously like a recoloured version of the kitchen set that came with Free Time.
Even then, items for the Romantic and Modern sets overlap between one another - the same counter is applicable to nearly every set, ditto to the (non-matching!) floors and walls. Additionally, it would have been nice to include a new dining table set for the new kitchen, even if it was just a tiny dine-in set.
There are some other new additions I guess to try and make up for the lack of object additions - a couple of new hairstyles, some new clothes (mostly in the cozy family i.e. sweaters, bath robes, or working ensembles) etc. but nothing special or notable.
Overall I was quite disappointed with this pack, and very surprised at the relatively warm reception its received. I'm glad that Maxis/EA tried to make a pack for a much overlooked area of the game, but they really could have done more with it. I do like the new colour schemes for the modern kitchen - but I can't say I love anything else that came with this game.
