I've been playing Sims for about six years now, both Sims 1 and 2. For the past six years I have alway wanted a weather capability and now I finally have it. Having it be able to snow or rain or any other weather phenomena brings even more realism to Sims.

The game brings new items such as: roller rinks, ice rinks, an entire race car bedroom set, rugs (they're back again!), new kitchen decorations, new plants,a curved pool side, a diagonal pool and a pool slide. You can now also fish and keep the fish to either cook or hang on a wall.

There are tons of new aspirations to have and 6 new jobs; educations, gamer, law and journalism are the ones I can think of off the top of my head.

There are a few downsides to the game: it does slow down, which is to be expected I suppose, but I just had my computer updated so it's three times faster... but the game is still slow. It's only slow while it's loading though, it doesn't jam up during game play for the most part (there was a snow storm when a car and a bus were coming to the house, so it was kinda overloaded...)

Also the fun isn't instant, like with Pets (based on my experience from the first one) you have pets and can play with them, but with Seasons you can have a garden but otherwise you have to wait for the seasons to change.

You also have to buy new items for your current Sims, like snow gear.

Overall I like the game, I would suggest buying the handbook with it because otherwise it's rather time consuming to figure the new icons out... and it could help with when to plant plants or what to do when they are sick.

Seasons is the bane of my existence! I recently visited a friend, who had the Sims 2 game, and was immediately addicted. Therefore I bought the game myself with a few of the expansions that sounded interesting to me, including seasons.

Upon playing the game, owning it less than a week, I've already had two sims die because they were in the hot tub and it suddenly burst into flames. Further research shows that sims have become more temperature sensitive and can die from heatstroke, freezing to death, and spontaneous combustion. While these in themselves are somewhat amusing additions, it is the ease with which they happen that makes it annoying! Apparently the windows version has a patch to help with the frequency of these occurences, but I was unable to tell if there was an equivalent patch for the mac version OR if the mac version had been released later enough that they were already corrected. Either way, it happens with some frequency in the game and if you were used to playing without, it can come as an unpleasant surprise.

Lightning is also a danger as it is apt to set on fire any trees around your home, inciting sims to panic. I've also read that sims can die from hail. It seems with Sims 2 Seasons, danger is always lurking around the corner. To top off my current annoyance, I bought this last week at 34.99 on amazon, only to have it drop to 19.99 (presumably for the holidays, I suppose).

One thing I did enjoy was the ability to put away leftovers, which I believe (not positive) as an addition from this EP. The sims is addictive, if not frustrating, amusing if not irritating.

The Sims 2 Seasons adds A LOT to gameplay! I as fairly disappointed after the release of The Sims 2 University - it lacked many objects and new gameplay. Seasons has both! After getting Sims fed, rested, and to the bathroom, there is usually very little time for them to do much else. Thats why this expansion pack is great - the seasons come naturally, as if in real life. Maxis promised us Seasons in the making of The Sims 2 game, and they definitely delivered on this one! There are dozens of new items, wallpapers, flooring, roofs, clothing, and even some new hairstyles. Sims can now play Marco-Polo in the pool, and go fishing in ponds! This expansion pack is a little more graphic-intense than the others, so make sure you are running at least the minimum specs on your computer. People I have talked to (as well as myself), don't appear to be having too much trouble with game lag after installing this expansion pack. I highly recommend Seasons, as one of, if not THE best expansion pack for The Sims 2 genre.

I love Sims. I have the University, Nightlife, and now the Seasons expansion pack. I have been playing since the original Sims. Seasons adds a great element to the game because, finally, there is a change to the outdoor environment. The one drawback from the game is that it is slower... sims take a few seconds to change their coats if they are going outdoors or to change into their pajamas. Load time for lots is a bit longer as well. However, the pros outweigh the cons. If you were getting bored with how easy sims were before and you need a challenge, this is a good expansion pack. Like University, it takes some time to learn how to balance your sim in the new environment. I love the new careers and the new objects. It's interesting to teach your sim to garden and there are so many facets to learn to manipulate. Another great sim game!

This is probably my favorite Sims 2 expansion pack. The weather element adds so much to the game for me! I love being able to grow fruits and vegetables and have my sims have outdoor activities they really enjoy! As an added bonus, it's surprisingly soothing when thundershowers come through your neighborhood! Control of the weather is totally in the players hands; if you love winter, then you have the power to set your towns to experience winter only. Create a beach side town where every day boasts Fourth of July heat. Lots of fun possibilities with this expansion pack. I recommend it alongside University as two must have expansions.
