Latest University Life Reviews

I've only found two The Sims 3 University Life reviews since last issue -- the first comes from Gaming Nexus, who rated it a “Class Leading” 8.8 out of 10:

In comparison with past expansion packs, The Sims 3  University Life provides a wide range of varied and  worthwhile content that’s a great addition to any fan’s  base game. The extensive amount of added activities and  social interactions make up for the few oddities while  attending class. No matter if an individual prefers to  study or party, The Sims 3 University Life has something  for every Sims fan.

The second comes from Game Vortex, who rated it 95%:

The Sims 3: University Life really adds a lot of new features to The Sims 3. There’s a whole lot that I haven’t even had a chance to try yet, like the new science and street art skills. If you’re looking for new features to add to your The Sims 3 game, I highly recommend the The Sims 3: University Life expansion!

The Metascore at Metacritic has gone up to 72 (“Mixed or average reviews”) based on six reviews. GameRankings now has enough reviews for its Ranking to be worth reporting -- that stands at 80.60% based on five reviews.
