IMG Previews The Sims: Hot Date
12:45 PM | Sean Smith | Comment on this story

IMG has posted a preview by Josh Jansen of Hot Date, the upcoming expansion pack to Aspyr Media's phenomenally popular Sims, in conversion now by Westlake Interactive.

Here's an excerpt:

So, why is Hot Date so special? Is it the new purchasable things? Is it the new activities that your Sims can participate in? Is it all the cool new jazz and Muzakô they added? Oh, they're a part of it, but more importantly, as many of you cross-platformers already know, the real appeal is the ability to go into town.

Yup, those maniacs at EA have heard your questions asking such things as 'Where do my Sims go when they're not in the house or at work, when they want to have some fun?' and up and created a whole new series of places for your Sims to exist in together and shell out their Simoleans for personal use, or to get on the good side of a pickup you bring or happen to meet. Each neighborhood, the multiplication of which first seen in Livin' Large, has it's own downtown location, where you the player can send your Sim to via the Sim Town's new on-demand Taxi service.

Downtown is composed of a total of ten lots similar in most respects to the lots in the Neighborhoods. The difference lies in what you can and cannot place in the Town's land, and the fact that money is not a factor. Confusing? I assure you, it's only my explanation of the process, so let me break it down....

Read the rest of our preview via the link below for more information about Hot Date. To find out why the stylishly dressed woman in the accompanying picture is dating the slob in an undershirt, I guess you'll just have to buy the game.
