5.0 out of 5 stars Whose in control again? Oh, that'll be you! 1 April 2012
By N. J. H. TOP 500 REVIEWER
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The great thing about the Sims has always been that you control somebody else and you can be as reserved or as adventurous as you want with their lives. However, there's always been a bit of a big BUT when it comes to the Sims. What's that then? Well are we ever really in control of EVERYTHING? The answer is no. Up until this point we've been unable to actually see past the front doors of the building of the place our Sims head off to work. Not anymore!!

Now the Sims has finally taken off. With the addition of a bunch of new careers (now called professions) including ghost hunters, firefighters, doctors, private investigators, stylists and architects we are able to control exactly what our Sims get up to at work. Now this works just the same as any other job in that we send our Sim off to work at the designated time, they can earn promotions and progress to the top of their field. The main difference is, now when we send our firefighter, lets say, to work we get to control almost everything. They get to work and can work on their fitness whilst waiting for an emergency, or we can get them to build relationships with their co-workers by the standard interaction instead of choosing "build relationships" on the drop-down menu we're all so used to.

On the main map we can now see where our professional is needed. If we're a ghost hunter, an icon will appear above a venue telling us that we're needed. We then click on the menu and can begin getting rid of those pesky ghost using our fancy new gadgets - or we can be rebellious and leave the ghosts to haunt the neighbours anyway. Similarly, what you get up to whilst you work doesn't always have to be productive.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I love this latest expansion pack,the new town twinbrook looks very realistic and the fog and swampy areas are a really nice touch as it gives the place a mysterious creepy feel which has never been done in the sims before,i like the new laundry option even though i wasnt sure about it before and visiting the laundromat to socialise while i wash my clothes,all the new careers are awesome and take many hours of fun play to reach level 10 with many hilarious adventures along the way,the new simbots are adorable and alot of fun to control and play with and being able to decorate your sims with tattoos is wicked,overall this is a great pack that has really spiced up my game with alot more things to do and it is way better than world adventures in my opinion even though that pack was ok for a few weeks,this one will keep me entertained for alot longer!

#adds new things to be able to buy in buy mode
#certain jobs allow you to be able to control them, like fire fighting you can choose how they spend their day.
cons...
#some jobs were very hard to be successful in like architecture
Overall, yes I would recommend this game

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and Longlasting 13 Aug 2010
By tomf60
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'll be frank about it. Its a great addition to a great game. The variety of professions is more than enough to keep you going, and each has its own fun and interesting differences from the rest. The only thing I did find annoying was just how intrusive the careers are in gameplay - for example, if you want your sim to sign up to one, you really have to put things like having a family on hold, lest you be overwhelmed with the amount you have to do. Also, I'd like to see some more new objects in future EPs, but the huge swathe of new Miscellaneous Décor was more than welcome - it adds that final realistic touch.

4/5 - Brilliant Expansion :)

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I couldnt wait to get this and since it has arrived have played it almost non stop. Ive had no problems with crashing at all and it saves fine. Theres a few new haircuts, but no extra clothes other than uniforms for the jobs. A few extra house decorations but not many. However been able to play the sims whilst they are at work is great, the only downside is that if you have two sims with jobs it seems difficult to be able to give them both equal attention. You can now also sculpt things which is good. Overall I'm glad I bought this game, just need to put a timer on to stop the hours passing by too quickly.

4.0 out of 5 stars good expansion 18 Feb 2014
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
maybe not quite as good as Id hoped from other comments but it does add a new layer to the game and I love the stylist role as ive always been frustrated by the lack of attractive pre-made sims. being able to give them a makeover really helps. also the ghost hunter role is really interesting and the journalist.
