Seasons Reviews Wrap-Up

I think it’s about time I wrapped up my The Sims 3 Seasons reviews coverage. As usual I’ll compare the Metascore from Metacritic and Ranking from GameRankings to with those attained by previous expansion packs.

The Metascore stands at 74, “Mixed or average reviews”. This is the same ‘score as was attained by Supernatural, Late Night and Ambitions, and is higher than those attained by Showtime (67) and Generations (70). It is however lower than those attained by Pets (79) and World Adventures (81). 74 is the same Metascore that The Sims 2 expansion packs Bon Voyage and FreeTime attained, but is lower than that attained by all the others. The full list of sources with Metascores specified for each can be found at the bottom of the post — click Read more if you can’t see them.

The Ranking at GameRankings stands at 76.25%, which is higher than those attained by Showtime (73.12%), Generations (73.93%) and Ambitions (75.93%), but lower than those attained by all the others. Out of The Sims 2 expansion packs, only Nightlife (76.07%), Bon Voyage (73.44%) and FreeTime (76.20%) got lower Rankings, though some of those that are higher are only just so — Seasons is only about half a percent higher, Pets even less of a difference. Again, the full list of sources can found at the bottom of the post.

So this concludes my The Sims 3 Seasons reviews coverage — I will no longer post news about any reviews I find (bar possibly ones from particularly major sites such as GameSpot). I will however still add them to the Reviews tab on the game page and mention that change on the Updates page.
