The Sims 2: Seasons Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Strategy Informer recently posted a review of The Sims 2: Seasons, an expansion to the series that incorporates a variety of seasonal activities into the mix. The game is loaded with new activities for Sims including snowball fights, chasing fireflies, and playing in leaf piles. Strategy Informer gave seasons a score of 9 out of 10.

This expansion means that you can create and control various climates, so experience summer all year around, or plunge your little people into their own never ending winter of discontent. Playing God means that you don't always have to play nice after all, punish them with hail and rain if you've had a bad day at the office, there's no Sims: 'Amnesty International' as yet. The parameters are simple. You must always have four seasons, however you can mess them about at will.

Keep in mind that your Sims are, like real people, moody little things at the best of times, and too much rain can lead to a depressed population. Too much sun can lead to irresponsible partying, so desert dwellers beware. I'm not sure what too much Autumn does, but too much Spring can swell the population, wink wink, nudge nudge.

Weather and seasons also mean that your Sims can get even better at gardening, even being able to grow their own food and stock their larders full of organic goodness. Don't think this is going to be an easy task however, growing plants in the sim world is just as hard as in the real world. Also, too much gardening turns your sims into weird plant people, which to be honest, is all a bit much, I mean that's not real is it? In real life if you spend too much time amongst the herbs you might think that you're seeing green people, but you don't start to actually look green yourself. Additionally, some crops produce potions and juices to give your sims a little bit of an extra boost.
