Extremely Happy With this Game,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Sims 3 Supernatural (DVD-ROM)
I really love this EP. If you love playing Sims 3, you will love this EP. If you love supernatural things, then you'll love the sims 3 and this EP. The witches, werewolves, and fairies are all really cool and really well done. Unlike in Sims 2, you have a lot more control over how your supernatural creature will look, traits, and interactions. Harry Potter fans will be happy to see that the witches are VERY much like Harry Potter witches and wizards. The fairies are a bit link Tinkerbell, but there are a lot of new interactions for them. The werewolves seem very realistic, and you can customize their wolf form. I wish you could make them an actual wolf, but alas not. Even if you have late night, there are additions to vampires. I thought the improvements might be lame and not worth it, but I'm excited about the new vampire interactions. All in all, the supernatural content of this game is really great.
What I really wanted to say, though, is that even if you aren't a huge supernatural creature fan, this is still a good EP to get. There are lots of new objects that aren't supernatural related. For instances, there's a rocking chair you can finally rock your baby or toddler in! There are games like whack-a-gnome and a claw arcade style game. There's a miniature train set! There's finally a collection case for insects. There's a new collections system that makes it really easy to see what you're missing. There are tons of new harvestables for gardeners and new cooking recipies. This EP just adds a lot to overall gameplay.
The new world, Moonlight Falls, is 'okay' in my books. The mountains backdrop and small town feel are nice. They did a good job of making sure that all of your other EP content is also installed in this world. A few changes to the bars, and they're just like nightlife bars. The Ambitions lots install in good places. There are tons of cute references to pop culture like "La Shove Beach" or 3 witch sisters living in a Victorian house together. I'm a bit disappointed in the appearance of the sims, though. Some world have better premades than this one, but it's still pretty good overall. I still prefer Sunset Valley and Hidden Springs, but this world is a decent one.
All in all, this is a great EP to purchase. Sims fans should get tons of play time out of this.
