3.0 out of 5 stars 4+4+17 July 31, 2011
Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
There is a reason for my review title; let me start by saying that I really do love playing the Sims 1, 2, & 3 and even if the last few stuff packs had crappy 'stuff' (Outdoor Living being the worst for me, personally), I did not have to think twice about buying this one. That being said, this stuff pack didn't redeem any high marks from me either. I am still the highest rater for this particular stuff pack with a whopping three stars (so far, as of July 31st), but I'm pretty bias toward this game, as a whole. That's my disclaimer.

Anyway, here's the reason for my review title: Women Sims get about 4 shirts in their general wardrobe, men get the same (but the clothes are rather hideous, as usual), and you get a little under 20 new items to 'decorate' your town. That equals about 25 new items for $20. The preloaded buildings (five in all; a library, a laundromat, a cafe called Nibbles that serves nauseating food to your celebrity Sim just about EVERY TIME, a gym, and a Prep school for kids)-- two being 'rabbit-holes.' The buildings are pretty, but with the exception of the Prep school, I have seen better looking buildings in Custom Content, but I would never suggest downloading CC unless you're comfortable with it.

So I liked the game enough to purchase it (at a discount from Amazon, of course), but I knew this was only a filler for the time-gap between now and Pets to arrive in October. Therefore, you should probably wait to buy the bulk at a discount or if you are a die-hard, you can buy it now but don't expect anything that you can't get from the Sims 3 website.

And the washer/dryer is the same item offered for sale in the store (so please don't be fooled by the "all-new" washer/dryer combo on the front packaging either).

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid July 27, 2011
Platform for Display:PC/Mac
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
So I was a dummy and bought the latest The Sims 3 "Stuff Pack" called "Town Life Stuff."

Total waste of time and money, as usual. "Stuff Packs" are a couple useless trinkets for $20. In this case, they also added the washing machines that I *already bought* from The Sims 3 online store. So, that was another complete waste of money.

Therefore, EA has taught me a valuable lesson: I WILL NEVER BUY FROM THE ONLINE STORE or STUFF PACKS AGAIN.

Also, when I installed, they patched my game to version 1.23. However, none of the official delta patches I could find links to will upgrade from 1.23 to the latest, 1.24. So, this required me to download the 680.2MB comprehensive patch.

Recommendation: update the base game to 1.24 before installing this. You'll probably only need a ~90MB delta patch.

Better recommendation: Don't buy this.

When will diehards stop buying Stuff Packs? This one just did. A couple hairstyles, touched-up venues, and a paltry few outfits. All for just $20. Oh, look, it's a much better deal than buying from the online store. Yes, it is. But just because a terrible deal is better than a horrible deal doesn't negate the fact that it's still a terrible deal!

By the way, this Stuff Pack only takes up 133MB on the DVD-ROM it's shipped on. The other 1.7GB is for Mac + PC patches to get you to 1.23, which you probably don't want if you can help it.

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit disappointed July 28, 2011
Platform for Display:PC/Mac
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Yep ...
So I am a true die hard sims player. I play a couple hours daily (or every other day).

This pack is probably the worse stuff pack since fastlane.

Very few things, I think a few outfits, a couple hair styles, some items and some new public places.

The public places are nice, the Gym, restaurant, a park, Laundry mat & Library, I all liked those (there is also a new produce store and another store I believe)
They are nice but really something that any avid player can create.

The new items are alright but there is only about 15 or so (if that)

I am pretty disappointed in this one. I think I might not get stuff pack anymore, seems to be a bit of a waste. I dont mind buying it if there is more items but this is very little.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money July 28, 2011
Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Town Life Stuff is a waste of money. I was hoping it would have revamped the town, but it's basically just a download of new community properties that you have to place yourself. Most of the community properties, like a grocery store, the town already has. There were 2 new adult female hair styles, a couple of outfits, and that's about it. It definitely is not worth the price.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed... July 30, 2011
Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Shame on me! I looked at the items on the front and read everything on the official site about what was included and still managed to be disappointed. I was taken off guard by the fact that I had to find room to place the new lots myself. Some people had speculated there might be a new town included. Nope. Also I already had a laundromat, library, playground and gym in my little town. Although they look a little updated, I was not impressed. New rabbit hole stores? That isn't important to me...we can't go in there anyway. There are a couple ugly outfits and a few new hairstyles. I can't rate this a one star because there are those new outfits and hairstyles but I am just disappointed. This is the stuff pack that adds the least to the overall game of any released yet. EA should give us more than what we expect. This is a failure as it offers even less than we expected.
