On vacation the last time the Sims came to visit? Wondering what all the fuss is about? If so, Electronic Arts is releasing The Sims: Double Deluxe for those who initially missed out on 2000's best-selling computer game and its subsequent expansion packs. Now players can revisit the full version of The Sims as well as its first two add-on discs, Livin' Large and House Party. Players will create a simulated people and drop them into a community where they can meet other Sims, initiate romantic relationships, develop a career, and more importantly, satisfy their materialistic desires by buying as much wild and crazy furnishings as possible to deck out their homes.
Each expansion pack increases the number of available items to place in one's dwelling, from heart-shaped beds to home chemistry labs. Also included are new characters and locations to spice up the Sims' digital lives. In addition to the original game and two add-ons, Double Deluxe includes The Sims Creator, an editing tool used to change the appearance of Sims right down to the accessories they wear. Adventurous types can even import digital photos onto their Sims and see how well their likenesses fare in settings such as an underground rave or tropical luau. Bonus content includes new wall types, floors, and both African and Asian inspired themes, along with extras originally available on the Internet, such as carnivorous plants and mistletoe. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
