Today’s The Sims 3 Seasons review comes from NZGamer.com, who rated it a “Good” 7.7 out of 10:

Even if you’ve played it to death already, the simple  application of weather and seasonal content guarantees  plenty more mileage from the original game. A good  stocking filler for the fans.

Latest Seasons Reviews: Game Chronicles HD, Girl Gamers UK

Thursday 29th November 2012 | 2:26 pm UK time | Categories

Two more The Sims 3 Seasons reviews for you today — first is Game Chronicles HD who rated it four out of five:

Still, this add-on undoubtedly infuses a three-year-old  game with new life, and it’s, by far, the strongest of  the eight. At a suggested retail price of $39.99, The  Sims 3 Seasons is one of the pricier expansion packs,  but it’s hard to imagine a Sims 3 fan missing out on  this one, even with its foibles.

Second and last is Girl Gamers UK who rated it 8.5 out of 10:

While the vast majority of the gameplay remains the  same, the fact that Sims are affected by different  environmental factors adds a new dynamic to the game,  and the new festivals bring activities that change with  the seasons. The Sims 3 Seasons is a ‘must buy’  expansion for the evergrowing series and will change the  life of your Sim.

Latest Seasons Reviews: Game Revolution

Wednesday 28th November 2012 | 2:04 pm UK time | Categories

The latest The Sims 3 Seasons review comes from Game Revolution, who rated it 3.5 out of five:

In short, this expansion falls slightly short of how  interesting and deeply embedded the Supernatural expansion was. That said, Seasons supplies a depth to what can feel like an  endless sunny crawl of hours and minutes in The  Sims 3. For that, the change of pace is well  worth the price of admission.

Latest Seasons Reviews: Tech-Gaming

Saturday 24th November 2012 | 1:40 pm UK time | Categories

Tech-Gaming brings us the latest The Sims 3 Seasons review, giving it a B grade:

After a few decidedly superfluous Sims Expansions and  Stuff Packs, it’s gratifying to see the development back  on track. For the most part, the changes in Seasons are  satisfying, providing an entertaining swath of  supplements which not only will remind gamers of Sims  3’s strengths, but also the natural magnificence of  mother nature.

The second The Sims 3 Seasons review comes from GamesRadar, who gave it a “Great” four stars out of five:

Despite those few issues, The Sims 3: Seasons is the  strongest expansion yet. Whether you’ve been playing  consistently for three years or your Sims have been long  abandoned, this expansion makes the game feel new again.

First Seasons Reviews: GameZone

Tuesday 20th November 2012 | 1:14 pm UK time | Categories

The first The Sims 3 Seasons review has arrived — GameZone has rated it an “Amazing” 9.0 out of 10:

Overall, The Sims 3 Seasons is one of the  best expansions the game has received in quite a  while. The simple addition of weather adds a breath  of fresh air into the now three-year-old game. The  only problem is now that we have seasons, where does  EA go from here?

Producer Explains Holidays In Seasons In New Blog Post

Tuesday 20th November 2012 | 11:26 am UK time | Categories

The Sims 3 Seasons producer Mike Zamora has posted a blog entry on TheSims3.com discussing holidays, with a focus on Snowflake Day:

A holiday is a special day designated in each season where Sims in your town are given the day off from work or school to relax, have fun and celebrate. There’s a total of four holidays in the game: Leisure Day, Spooky Day, Snowflake Day and Love Day, each presenting a seasonally specific theme. When this special day finally arrives, moodlets will appear on your Sims that drive unique behavior. The festival grounds will also draw more visitors, creating a party-like atmosphere at the center of your town.
