I love this expansion pack. There are a few things that I would change, but all in all a great game.

Pros:
Test out all your crazy ideas without loosing your real money
Adds new demension to Sims2
Makes raising lots of kids without being in the poorhouse easier (work from home)
Makes for an easy second job

Cons:
Start up cost of some businesses is horrible, hard time making it back
Some things don't make sense:
1. why is the business "open" from the moment you make the phone call...even if that is 2am?
2. why does it take people so long to buy some things (food for instance)...this should not take literally hours.
3. Please...have a meter for the levels of badges (sales, stocking, etc)
4. Make the cash register a bit easier to use...come on, are all sims that stupid to begin with?
5. Please let the employees "wear out" in relation to the work they do (a server should get tired before the cashier, not at the same rate)
6. It should not take a whole day to run after new employees to assign their jobs and uniforms. You should be able to click and do it, not run after all of them to actually talk to them each time.

In Conclusion:

I find this to be a great add on. I have not run into any gliches so far. As to the complaint that I hear all the time--that people go into your house whether you lock the door or not--lock the door before anyone goes into your house. As soon as you start the business, lock the doors before people arrive. This has solved the problem for me.

Open For Business is a very big expansion, adding a large and complicating entrepreneurship element to the game. It does, however, get a little confusing starting out and you may need to consult the manual more than once. Once you get the hang of it, you'll have a lot of fun with it. The Kitchen and Bath additions are great; I was getting really tired of the limited options for bathrooms and kitchens, and they kind looked the same, but the Stuff Pack fixes that. The H&M pack is shameless product placement, especially the fact that it allows you to place or build H&M stores or even put giant H&M decorations in your house, but the clothes themselves are a big improvement. They're much more modern than some of the options that shipped with the base game.

I Love this game. I have started my own home business, but I closed it do to the fact that I really did not know what to do, and yes as soon as you open or start the home business it is open, you have to have an open/close sign in order for you to be able to close it. So I suggest purchasing that first and placing it next to the phone or computer before starting a home business, or if you are going to buy an actual place then, get sign first place in enventory so that when you get to your place of business you can pause the game and place you sign in close range so that you will have time to close business befor anyone arrives, and you will be able to stock or furnish you business first. one of my families own a resturant, another owns a clothing store, I recently got Sims2 Freetime, and Sims2 Fun With Pets(both games*****!!) so I am going to open a pet store soon!! I hope review was helpful, and also that you enjoy your game(s) as much as I do!!

I'm amazed that it is cheaper to by this bundled up collection of Sims 2 games than to buy any ONE of these individually.

I wanted to finally complete my Sims 2 Collection by buying the last 3 stuff packs that I needed, and so I looked it up on amazon. $20. This game with an expansion and stuff pack that I didn't even need? $13. It was more cost efficient to buy the other games that I didn't even need than to buy the one that I did.

That being said, Open For Business is a vital expansion pack, and the clothes in the H&M Fashion Stuff Pack are irreplaceable. If you don't have any of the games in this bundle, buy it. You will not regret it. So far however, the Kitchen and Bath (the stuff pack I bought this bundle for) pretty much goes unnoticed in my game. I'm sure it adds some counters and tiles or deco objects, but I could have saved my $13 dollars. I was just as happy without it.

This is an absolute deal and steal compared to the price of these games when they were brand new. I would have never dreamed all of these games would be bundled and sold for 13 and 12 dollars each. But time has left the Sims 2 and it's pricey-ness in the past. Reap the benefits.

I like how this is a whole new direction for Sims 2, something totally different. I like how the Sims can be a part of it or not. I like how it adds basically an additional game to Sims. It loaded in well with the other packages and it's fun. Plus it comes with the additonal decor and clothes which are a lot of fun. I wish the H&M fashion had more clothes for the whole family but it did add some neat stuff for teens, just wish there was more. Kitchen and Bath added some cool things but they could've done more as far as designs to match different styles. I was kind of dissapointed with how few showers/tubs were added but since it came with the others and I got it at a small price for all three in one, I can't complain. Altogether I was happy to add it all to Sims 2. Very fun.
