5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Expansion Pack Yet! April 4, 2002

5.0 out of 5 stars The Sims Vacation February 18, 2002
This is the 4th expansion on the original sims game released in May 2002, Vacation will introduce being able to take the whole household to `Vacation island' (A fully customisable island with various lots) The island has three sections Woodland camping, Snowy mountain and Beach all of which have objects and accessories themed to match. Whilst there your sims can enjoy the sun soaked beaches and fluffy snow but pressures such as money and deteriorating friendships put a strain on time spent there (although short term help is available like postcards for friends and slot machines for money) There are various souvenirs to be found, bought and won and an entertaining posse of characters including the pickpocket, hotel staff and kiddies entertainers. New objects include the arcade games, souvenir cabinet, snowboard half pipe, crazy golf, pool slide, skating rink, fishing pier, igloos and tents. In fact there is over 140 new objects to make amazing resorts from. You design the island and build up hotels, log huts, woods you name it! And you create the fun when you control the holiday! Its runs a bit slower but overall this game looks really cool and is sure to re-addict any bored sims user, and there are no found bugs yet. Whether the sims has been milked enough is yet to be seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice! April 8, 2002
This expansion pack again takes the Sims beyond their neighborhoods, adding another dimension to the game. A Vacation Island provides three beach lots, three wooded, and three snow-covered, with your choice of luxury resorts, or down and dirty camp sites. The pack provides some new non-player characters, and some fellow tourists for interaction. Personally, I hate kids, but this expansion does jazz up the interactions that the Sims can have with their kids, making them more interesting and a tad less irritating, if you insist on having them. There are many new objects, a lot of them for entertainment on your vacation lots, but there are many which can be used in your Sims' homes, and I felt that the new objects were worth the price of the pack. Time doesn't pass in the Sim home while they're on vacation, so they don't lose jobs while they're away. There's oodles of new discoveries, for example, renting a metal detector, which lets you find wonderful things like treasure chests and old boots, which the Sims bring home and display. The Sims are very fond of their souvenirs, one of mine enthralled her friends for hours with an old boot!
When a family goes on vacation, unlike Downtown, all members are controllable. This is good. However, if a Sim invites a non-family Sim on vacation, the guest is not controllable. Unfortunately, the guests are too stupid to take showers or use the bathroom and since you can't tell them to, they become miserable. This is bad. Also comical. They'll pee themselves and then hop into bed with their host. So far this is the only gripe that I have. I do have to say I'm not enchanted with the characters who were put in to entertain the kids, although the upside there is that occasionally the kids kick them in the shins.

5.0 out of 5 stars For those over-worked Sims... December 5, 2003
Take a vacation!
This is another GREAT expansion pack to add to your Sims collection! I have every single expansion, and I LOVE them all.. call me your neighborhood Sims addict. :D
In this expansion, you get the ability to take your Sims to a vacation resort. This varies from a snowy mountain, to a serene cabin in the woods, to a beachfront paradise. Everything an over-worked, underpaid Sim could dream of!
ALso included are DOZENS of cool new items that your Sims can play with while on vacation. The boardwalk at the beach includes several games your Sims can play to earn tokens. With those tokens, they can get all sorts of Sim junk! And another new addition is a shelf your Sims can put their junk on when they get home so they can always remember their special trip to the beach.
The more frigid Sims can enjoy snowboarding or have a good old-fashioned snowball showdown. For those Sims who want to relax, there are new hot tubs to play with as well. Also, your Sims can rent metal detectors and search for buried treasure.. who knows what the other Sims might have dropped in the snow during their mad rush to the buffet!
If your Sim prefers roughing it, they can pitch a tent in the mountains and spend all day fishing. When they're done fishing, they can sit around a campfire and enjoy the fresh mountain air.. then sleep in a state of the art Sim tent. Talk about heaven! ;)
This expansion pack is a blast and you won't regret getting it. Buy it for your poor Sims, they want a VACATION!
