Hot date-The hard and harsh world of dating!!!,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Sims: Hot Date Expansion Pack (PC CD) (Video Game)
I've has my Hot Date expansion pack for one week now.I would recommend the expansion pack to any current owner of other Sims products.It is a lot harder for a Sim to have a succesful relationship on Hot Date.You have to buy gifts for your loved ones,take them out for a meal or for a picnic in the park.You have to take a general interest in the object of your affection by asking them questions like; 'how are you' 'how is work' 'what are you into' Unlike previous Sims games where as after an hour of talking you were married with a child.You really do have to work on your relationship.Your Sim can order a taxi and go downtown.Downtown there are bars,restraunts,shops,parks,beaches and boardwalks.Your Sim can go shopping!When they are out shopping they can try outfits on,buy a diamond ring or roses (for a loved one)Also they can buy magazines so when out on a date they can chat about whats Hot!There are many characters downtown that you can bump into-there's a old lady who is a prude-if she see's you getting lovey dovey with another sim she will bat you with a purse!Look out for flirts,romeo's and party animals.There are many new objects.The best bit about the game is being able to design downtown area's.Also its good having a lot more interactions,one of my sims asked another back to his house and he was dumped as it was too soon!Another favorite bit is when your sim goes to the wardrobe a screen pops up to show you all of the different outfits and what your sim would look like with them on.If you buy clothes downtown they automatically go to your home wardrobe.The game is a must for all Sims fans!
