Supernatural Reviews Wrap-Up

Thursday 11th October 2012 | 3:09 pm UK time | Categories

It’s time to conclude my The Sims 3 Supernatural reviews, so now is a good time to see how this expansion compares to its predecessors through the medium of Metacritic and GameRankings.

The Metascore at Metacritic currently stands at 71, and there’s probably not much chance of that changing much now. This is lower than the base game’s ‘score of 86, but this is true of all the expansion packs. This is also lower though than most of the expansion packs, with only Showtime (67) and Generations (70) getting lower Metascores. It’s also lower than the ‘scores attained by all The Sims 2 expansion packs.

The probably pretty-much-final Ranking at GameRankings is 77.12%. This is lower than that attained by the base game, but no expansion pack has exceeded that. It’s higher than the Rankings attained by Showtime, Generations and Ambitions, but lower than the other three. Comparing to The Sims 2 expansion packs, this has a higher Ranking than Nightlife, Pets, Seasons, Bon Voyage and FreeTime, with only University, Open for Business and Apartment Life having higher Rankings.

See all the Metascores and Rankings attained in the sources lists at the bottom (click read more if you can’t see them).

So this concludes my reviews coverage — I will not post news about any future reviews I come across, but they will still be added to the game page with that update mentioned on the Updates page.

Supernatural Producer Shares Two Final “Surprises”

Wednesday 5th September 2012 | 2:48 pm UK time | Categories

Senior producer Kari St John has posted a blog entry in which he shares two final The Sims 3 Supernatural “surprises”:

1.) There is more than one way to make a Sim “croak.”  One of the more interesting magical abilities available to witch Sims is casting the “Toadification curse.” Casting this spell on any Sim will temporarily change them into a ToadSim with an over-sized frog-like head and big beady eyes that are constantly scanning for their next meal. Suddenly, the flies on trash cans and spoiled food look pretty attractive to Sims that carry this unfortunate curse.
