Late Night Reviews Wrap-Up

Nearly two months since its release, and with very few now being posted, I think it’s about time I wrapped-up my The Sims 3 Late Night reviews coverage – and in the unlikely event you’ve holding out on buying it until you saw this, it’s just in time for Christmas. As I have done previously, I’ll now compare the Ranking from GameRankings and Metascore from Metacritic that Late Night attained to those attained by its predecessors.

First, Metacritic. Late Night’s Metascore stands at 75 based on 14 reviews, which is one better than Ambitions (74, based on 25 reviews), but worse than World Adventures which has a ‘score of 81 (based on 31 reviews). It’s also lower than the base game’s ‘score, which is 86 (based on 75 reviews). Comparing it to The Sims 2 expansion packs, this is higher than the ‘scores attained by Bon Voyage (74) and FreeTime (74), but lower than every other one, except Apartment Life which has the same ‘score.

GameRankings then. Late Night’s Ranking is 80.00%, but this is based on just five reviews, so could change quite a lot if they add any more. Comparing what we’ve got now though, this is higher than Ambitions’ Ranking of 75.19% (based on eight reviews), but lower than World Adventures’ Ranking of 82.74% (based on 17 reviews). This is also lower than the Ranking attained by the base game – 86.65% based on 54 reviews. Late Night’s Ranking is higher than every The Sims 2 expansion pack bar University, which has a Ranking of 81.11% based on 31 reviews.

Go to the full article page (or scroll down a tad if you’re already there) for links to all the games mentioned on Metacritic and GameRankings with the Metascore or Ranking each one has in brackets.

If I become aware of any more Late Night reviews in the future, I won’t post about them here, but will still add them to the Reviews tab, and note that change on the Updates page. I still want to see your reviews too! Click the second link below, login with your Google, Yahoo!, AIM, Twitter, OpenID or NetLog account if you haven’t already, then type away.
