IMG Previews The Sims: Vacation
1:00 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

The Sims have been Livin’ Large, thrown a House Party and even stepped out on a Hot Date, but have yet to know the pleasures of a full blown pack up the car, grab the kids, all out vacation. However, the previous will soon be a distant memory thanks to a hefty expansion pack by the name of The Sims: Vacation.

IMG's Michael Phillips takes the latest beta for a tour and has posted a preview of the expansion pack. Here's a snippet from the article:

Gamers will surely enjoy the level of group activity in Vacation. For example, Sims can sit around a campfire, singing songs & toasting fluffy marshmallows. Another interesting group activity is fishing. When fishing, Sims casually cast their lines, hoping to catch a fish worthy of a spot over the mantle back home, all while chatting it up with fellow fishersims. My Sim recently reeled in a poor turtle; luckily he was already in the market for a lip ring and was happy return home to the pond. I shed a tear for poor Yurtle, I hope the pond is treating him well… Volleyball is another way for Sims to spend their hard-earned vacation time. In volleyball, teams of 4 battle it out in front of the net for points and bragging rights. It’s too bad my Sim is about as good at volleyball as he is at fishing.
Be sure to check out the rest of the article!
