I am a big Sims 2 fan and was eagerly awaiting this expansion pack, I wasn’t disappointed! Even before you go on vacation I love heaps of the new features, jewelry including earrings, bracelets/watches, necklaces and miscellaneous items like nose rings, the ability to simply walk to community lots new ‘Turn Ons’ (including skill based ones like being a good cook, or athleticism). Going on holiday (or vacation) is awesome it can cost a lot so families with small budgets should save up before. The best destination by far is Twikkii Island, a tropical paradise with beachfront hotels, your Sims can get tanned or sun burnt, they can explore the old pirate ship as well as many other awesome areas! You can also go to the Three Lakes a outdoorsy camping type area or Takemizu Village, the Far East, where you can get amazing skills like learning to teleport. Well while I really like heaps of the elements in this expansion pack the majority of new features require you to be on vacation and while that is awesome you don’t age on vacation so it is really just a break out of your Sims busy schedule and not something to do every second day. Also although this is an early review I have found this expansion pack quite buggy and while my computer specs are higher than the recommended requirements quite laggy. The bugs should be sorted quickly when the official site releases the patch it is still a hindrance and contributes to only the 4 star rating.
