Well, I got this as soon as it came out, since I have every other expansion pack for Sims 3.
Off the bat, I have to say that I'm a total Sims 3 player. I love the game, and am completely hooked.
That being said, I'm not sure that we really gain anything of significance with this expansion pack - except for a new BBQ outside. I mean, hey, I love a good BBQ, but I was hoping for more. Okay, sure, you get a new TV as well, that you're encouraged to put outside - but lets be fair, if you're gonna pay that much for the TV, you're gonna put it inside your house. It doesn't rain in the game (unlike on Sims 2 with the Seasons pack), so really, you could put any TV outside - you don't need a special one.
The new hottubs were quite a nice feature, I found. It adds a bit more variation on the external themes you can have outside in your garden.
I still love the game, and this expansion doesn't really give you lots of new stuff to play with, but it adds a few new items you can play with in your garden. Overall, 4/5.
