This expansion is very pricey, but it does add a lot of customization in order to give your Sims pets to enjoy and offer them companionship. If you can afford the expansion it's a great addition to the game!"

      "City Living is the expansion pack The Sims games have been demanding since long time ago! Now, instead of living in a nice but isolated single-family home you can live in the city, sharing your flat with friends and meeting your neighbors (which is not always a good idea!). But the best part isn't this: now the community lots are alive and almost each day there's a party or a special activity in the street, so you can interact more and better with other sims and the new objects. IMHO is the best The Sims 4 pack so far..."

For instance, I got my shy and timid Sims attend the party and to actually DJing in the club. I'm particularly amused by the walkin closet feature which allows me not only to dress myself but also the friends. When I play this with my friends we have tons of fun trying out the "steamy" activities in the Sims."

    WHAT’S THE MEANING?

    An expansion pack is an add-on to an existing game. It gives additional content that is not available on the original stand-alone game, such as new objects, new characters, a new storyline, and new game features.

    DID YOU KNOW?

    Did you know that Sims 4 is one of the best-selling PC games of all time, with over 5 million copies sold in just a year and a half? However, the fourth installation of the famous Sims series sparked controversy before its release when Maxis and EA, the game developer and publisher, announced that Sims 4 lacks some gameplay features available in other releases, such as open-world gameplay, pools, and toddlers. The developers cite time constraints as the main reason for the missing features, prompting over 25000 fans of the game to sign a petition to delay the game release until these features can be added to the base game. Other fans speculated that these features will be added later to the game as part of expansion packs or as free game patches. Maxis and EA defended the game by saying that despite the lack of playable features, the base game is stable and that the future of The Sims 4 is bright. Since then, 5 expansion packs have been released along with 14 stuff packs and 6 game packs.

      "One of the main concerns of several generations of "The Sims" players was "what happens when the sims go to work?". With this expansion pack, we have (finally!!) the answer to this question. Get To Work adds a new level of gameplay to the franchise, adding the ability to join sims in their careers. Each career (Doctor, Detective, and Scientist) has its own tasks and challenges. Furthermore, if you prefer, go your way and open a business in your neighborhood: this feature has a lot of new interactions too."

Of course, this is a game for almost all ages and you won't see extreme violence and/or eroticism but, anyway, it's cool to use your powers, convert innocent sims into your race and living in a house plenty of gothic furniture."

Maybe it's not a revolutionary expansion but adds a bit of simulation to the core game, so it's cool."

      "The Sims 4: Luxury Party is a great game but the expansion pack made the game a whole lot more enjoyable for me, you can update wardrobe, decide what dishes to serve and I was able to change the party more to my liking, in all I am very impressed with the expansion pack."

      "I regularly buy expansion packs, but don't often buy stuff packs. However, I'm a big fan of this pack. I have a few Sim families with way more money than they know what to do with. This pack helps them really live in luxury!"

      "The Sims 4:Luxury Party-Stuff Pack was super fun! I was addicted to Sims 4 for a long time before getting tired of the repetition. Now with the party pack, it's like a whole new game again!"

      "So many hours I've spent getting to love my Sims far more than is probably healthy! Yes sometimes I would lock them in a room without a door so I could watch them die. That's what makes this expansion pack perfect for me, I'm a little dark and love love love the spooky stuff!"

      "I got this expansion pack a week ago and I just spent half an hour playing with it. I had so much fun! I got it without thinking too much about it, just because it looked like it could be fun, but it's actually much more entertaining than that. There are a lot of options and you can combine them endlessly to create a lot of goofy looks. I particularly enjoyed piling them up and going overboard with them :-)"

      "If you like Halloween-themed stuff and classic horror movies you will love this stuff pack, it's plenty of creepy fancy dresses and some cool furniture for you home! Maybe it's a bit expensive if we compare it with expansion packs (or even with game packs) but we have to admit the items and costumes of this pack are great and much better than ones you can find for free in mods websites."
