The Sims 2 Glamour Life Stuff Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

A new review of The Sims 2 add-on, Glamour Life Stuff, is now available from Applelinks. The Sims 2 Glamour Life Stuff was developed for Mac by Aspyr Studios, Aspyr's internal development team, and introduces 60 new items for Sims 2 players to enjoy. Applelinks gave the stuff pack a score of 2 out of 5.

From the review:

Glamour Life Stuff, then, is something of a less exciting add-on to the Sims canon; it doesn't allow your characters to go on jet-set trips to Rome or Monte Carlo, but allows them to dress up as if they did. An expansion of expensive items for your well-to-do Sims, it allows you to drench your characters and/or their house with modern art, expensive clothes, and other "finery," most of which is kind of garish: pop art and fur coats. It's sort of a middle class idea of what a rich person would have. But then, the Sims has always been about conspicuous consumption. The stuff all looks nice—and by that I mean well-designed from a computer standpoint, right down to the Lichtenstein print with the Sims dialogue box (choice of six different styles, no less) printed on it. Even the fur coat, which I suppose I should be upset about, but will wait until they come out with Sims 2: Fur Trapper and Seal Clubber expansion before I let it get my ire up.

The only question is, should you pay for this particular expansion when there's so much free content out on the web? Tough call. With the previous expansions, you were given new areas of the game to explore, new actions to take, and new ways to interact with other characters. With GLS, you're getting...a new chair.
