Amazon.co.uk Review

In a nutshell:
The second expansion pack for The Sims 2 makes the Sims’ pleasure your leisure. It adds in a special new neighbourhood called Downtown, packed to the gills with restaurants, bowling alleys, shops, parks, karaoke bars and clubs. You can visit them alone, go in a group, or take that special Sim out for a dream date.

The lowdown:
Whether you’re trying to organise a romantic date for two or a boisterous girls night out, your time spent in Downtown is constantly being appraised: commit one faux pas too many, and the timer will run out and you’ll be left with a deflated Sim and an inflated drinks bills. Your Sim can now scope out a room to check for compatible partners, while other more random additions include a new "pleasure life" aspiration, cars, garages and, rather oddly, vampires.

Most exciting moment:
Engineering the perfect date and getting an extra use out of your new car. Ooh, and indeed, er.

Since you ask:
Not counting online title World of WarCraft, The Sims 2 is the best selling PC game in the world ever.

The bottom line:
Another generously stacked expansion pack for your little computer people.

5.0 out of 5 stars ANOTHER GREAT SIMS GAME 25 Mar 2006
By R.P
Nightlife offers a new downtown/city area that you can associate with your towns. There's only one, but it's loaded with new buildings, restaurants, stores, and entertainment centers. 125 new objects are available, most focusing on social interaction or community lot decorating. Sims can now build driveways and own their own cars, and they can form social groups or go out on dates. In addition, the inclusion of Vampires (see below) almost makes the pack. Graphically, there are some new perks. Although it doesn't directly impact gameplay, you can now see neighboring lots from your own house -- this makes the game more immersive, since it doesn't feel like your house is floating in space anymoreA new "Pleasure Aspiration" is now available as a Sim's life goal. Typically Sims with the Pleasure Aspiration live for the moment, their wants changing rapidly based on the situation, eager to do whatever fun thing is at hand. They're pretty easy to keep happy, but not very deep, which makes the new aspiration less interesting to play than, say, a family or popularity aspiration.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fab!!! 3 Aug 2006
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a great expansion pack. Much better than university as it is much more entertaining and has a lot more to offer.

The new downtown neighbourhood is cool and the default comes complete with trendy nightclubs, uptown restaurants and backdoor gambling dens.

There are also plenty of new objects like the dance sphere and cars that Sims can actually drive!!

I would definately rate this as the best expansion pack of the Sims so far (until pets comes out in October :D).

5.0 out of 5 stars Long-term Sim Fan loves new expansion pack 30 Sep 2005
I have been playing The Sims since the first Sims was ever released and I am a self-confessed addict. I think nothing of spending 12 hours playing The Sims and with this new expansion pack for The Sims 2, I am in danger of seriously doing my shoulder muscles in. The Nightlife expansion pack includes many of the things that I have always said were missing. Sims now have their own cars and best of all, you can organise group outings. This is a brilliant idea and I am so happy that Maxis have finally brought out an idea that I was longing for. The new clothes are amazing - pretty modern too, and the new interactions and new chemistry addition to the pack makes things a lot easier too. I would definitley recommend paying the Gypsy women the whole 5000 simoleons for the perfect match. Cheat if you have to - it's well worth it.
The next expansion pack due out in early 2006 is the other thing that was always missing from The Sims and I cannot wait until it's released. You can take your Sims to work - I'm so excited!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best EPs! 21 Aug 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
In this expansion pack sims get cars at last! No more carpool! Also, many new interactions come into play, including slow dancing, over the table flirting and many more. With this expansion packs your sims can go on dates, have their pictures taken in the photo booth dance at the dicos and much more! They can also eat out with a friend or that special someone at a restaurant! There is also a new aspiration. The pleasure aspiration.
Highly recommended game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nightlife is the best! 18 Oct 2005
By Gabby
I bought University and didn't like it, so I wasn't holding out much hope for the 2nd expansion pack for the sims 2. But after a guy at school lent it to me, I have completely changed my mind! It is amazing! The cars are b-e-a-utiful! and the new objects are cool too! I would reccomend this as a must-buy for any sims lover.
I would recomend the book too but it's not a necessity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Game! 11 Sep 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have had this game for a while. I think The whole Sims collection is brilliant but this is one of my favourite expansion packs.
The variety in this game is amazing and not only can you visit downtown for a night out but you can buy a car, go on dream dates, even become a vampire!
As for people who say this game doesn't work? I don't agree. It will work, provided you have met the requirements. It says what these are on the back of the box!
Sims does use a lot of memory and I would recommend having a decent graphics card. I have a microsoft computer with windows XP and it works perfectly. Basically just check you have what it says.
Otherwise I love this game. If you have played Sims before and liked it then you will love this. If you haven't played Sims before then you should try it.
You need Sims 2 to be able to play this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nightlife vs. University 18 Oct 2005
Verified Purchase
For any major sim fan, nightlife is for you. It also adds a lot to expansion 1 university. From dating to vampires or to the basic but nice addons like night time neighbourhood and visible lots around your sim's house. This is for you. Now all of the bugs with university and nightlife have been corrected via a patch from the offical site ([...]) there has never been a better time to buy!
