Players can have their Sims ask each other out on a date, or they can try their luck with an in-game dating service. Arrange to meet another Sim downtown at exciting and romantic locations that the player can create. Everything from a candlelit dinner, a drink at the bar, or a rendezvous in the park is possible as your Sim attempts to orchestrate an evening to remember.
Once your Sim is out with that special someone, additional interests and new interactions keep the conversation flowing and chemistry clicking. Sims can now flirt, play footsie, engage in a little tonsil hockey, or converse in Simlish about new and diverse interests. Being a fun and fascinating date gets your Sim one step closer to a goodnight kiss, or more!
Players can watch sparks fly or fizzle as their Sims meet and date a host of new characters. Sims can spurn the advances of the Jock, welcome the overtures of the Femme Fatale, find true lust with Mr. Medallion, or strike out with the Blonde Bombshell. More than 100 new objects, including the Picnic Basket, Cuddle Couch, and Love Tub, allow players to set the mood for their Sims. Find your Sim a soul mate... or just have fun looking with The Sims: Hot Date Expansion Pack.

When Sims are ready to go downtown, they simply call a cab. They can invite other Sims with them or just look for their friends once downtown.
The Sims really seem to enjoy the new fish pond. They can buy fish food to feed the fish or rent sailboats to play with in the water. There's a rental shack where you get these items and it also has a picnic basket you can get.
When your Sims get a picnic basket, they spread out a blanket and then lay on it, eating and talking. If the date's going well, he might just go for a romantic kiss and then again, his date might completely reject him!
Each one of your neighborhoods has its own downtown area. When you go to the beach, you actually hear waves crashing! They can't swim in the water but, of course, you can always put a swimming pool on the beach. There are even changing rooms where your Sims can change into their swimsuits.
Another great feature of Hot Date is the "Townies." When you're downtown, you see all sorts of Sims, not only the ones from your neighborhood. You can talk to them and make friends. If all goes well, you can ask them to "Hang Out" with you and they'll follow you around doing what you do.
Let's talk food. There are all sorts of places your Sims can eat. There's an ice cream counter, hot dog stand, a place to get hamburgers, hot dogs and pizza, a diner and also a really fancy restaurant. You can create the restaurants yourself too or you can use the downtown buildings that come with the game.Read more ›
Whereas the first two expansion packs were fun, the problem was the characters never really changed. This time, the characters developing more detailed personalities and having a place to go try them out is the gem of the new expansion pack.
Your new sims can flirt or play footsie or show off their muscles while hanging out downtown. Another new feature! you can help create a downtown for your sims to hang out at such as the restaurants, boutiques or clubs and shops. Also, there are plenty of new characters to interact with, such as the Femme Fatal or the lonely guitar player -- quite a bit of fun to see new people! Also, there's an old lady that will beat you with her purse if you get too close to her hubby. LOL! There's no interaction with cars, unfortunately. Nope, Sims don't own their own cars -- but a taxi will help them downtown instead. There's also new wallpapers, doors and windows as well as furniture and a heart shaped tub for your new couple. :)
There's more to hot date than meets the eye. Now, you have to get your sim to date and talking isn't the only thing to keep another sim interested in your sim. If they're hungry you should feed them or if they're bored you should direct them to a club to hang out and dance -- otherwise, one of them could walk out on the other sim. But no matter -- your sim could look into picking up another date while downtown. Still, if your sims stay interested in each other, a make-out session could ensue very easily.
Buying new things isn't limited anymore either.Read more ›
Lots of great new items - my particular favorites are the Cuddle Couch (where I have discovered new interactions such as "caress," and "embrace") and the Heart-Shaped Hot Tub (where you can "wash," "cuddle," and "kiss" your date). There are some new decorative elements as well, although not as expansive as Living Large or House Party.
The best part of this game,however, was the new interactions. You can ask particular questions now, including if the Sim wants to come home with you. There are too many new ones to list, but here's a few: extreme tickling, growling, checking out, kissing passionately, kissing romantically, etc. etc. Consequently, relationships have become more complex, with the addition of a "long term" relationship bar and a "short term" relationship bar. The latter displays how you're faring with your companion in the short term (fluctuates wildly) and the former is your longer relationship "base," if you will, which is fairly steady. Different combinations on these bars produce different opportunities for social interactions.
So why did I give it 4 stars? There seem to be gameplay problems similar to the release of the first game. Remember when it took your Sim 45 minutes to drink a cup of coffee?Read more ›

I don't advise trying to use these older games on the new Windows operating systems - even on Windows 7 it's a LOT of work just to open it and play - not worth the trouble.Published 8 months ago by Amazon Customer
