News24 Games Reviews Outdoor Living Stuff

Friday 25th February 2011 | 2:34 pm UK time | Categories

If you’re still unsure whether to buy The Sims 3 Outdoor Living Stuff, maybe News24 Games can help with their review:

To wrap it up, I am sure no matter what I say the hardcore Sims-fans out there will be picking this one up. Though I just cannot help feel that the cons outweigh the pros. When you compare the amount of items you get, to the price of the actual pack (along with no signs of new interactions) it just does not seem worth it. Sure, you get to pimp out your backyard, but the question remains – will you?

Score: 5/10

I’ve extended the current poll, asking whether you were given The Sims 3 Late Night for Christmas, to Tuesday 8th March as I still haven’t received enough votes to close it. If I am able to close it then, that’s when you can expect the results.

The Sims 2 Store, EA’s concept trial that led to The Sims 3 Store, never left beta and was never made available outside the US and Canada, is to close on 31st March, EA has announced. Items purchased will no longer be downloadable after that date. SimPoints can be purchased up until 9th March, and can also apparently be spent at The Sims 3 Store if you use the same EA account for both. Click below for more details.
