The Sims 3 Generations is probably the best expansion pack for the Sims 3 yet, possibly with the exception of World Adventures. As previous reviewers have mentioned, it is mainly beneficial if you like to play with families as opposed to only adults, but there are some new aspects for the adults and it certainly makes having children a bit more interesting.

You can now have an adult sim read toddlers and children to sleep, and sometimes this will be one of their wishes, which is nice. You can only do this if you have certain suitable books. For children and teenagers there are a few more options at school. They can go on field trips from which they can pick up skills and moodlets and they can also sign up for after school activities from which they also pick up skills. Alternatively you can send them to boarding school where they will remain until they reach their next age up or until you remove them. If you leave them there they will pick up certain skills and personality traits. There was some kind of glitch in my game as I sent my teenager to a boarding school and for some reason she was delivered back to the house having not graduated. She received negative personality traits for her 'indifferent' attitude to school and also was unable to get a job! The option to join the ___ career was simply not there when you click on the buildings, although she could still get a vocational profession. Slightly unfair as I did not ask for her to be returned early from school, as I said, I think it was a glitch.

The fact that children can be punished is a bit annoying as the parents will punish the children without you telling them to do so. They can be sent to time out, be grounded or banned from using certain household objects.

If like me your like playing the family element more than the career then this is the expansion pack for you!
It opens up the family element more by introducing loads more interactions and activities you can do with your children. It doesnt come with a new world though which is disappointing!
Your sims can have new traits such as nurturing and rebellious.
Teens can play pranks and go to prom, Adults can have midlife crises and Woo hoo in a few more places (tree house and shower)
There are quite a few new toys and object additions such as slides, playground toys, tree houses, chemistry sets and prams etc. There is new wallpapers and spiral stairs for your house among other things. The imaginary friend is a good idea. Your baby gets a doll which when they grow up can turn into an imaginary friend

In create a sim you can now add body hair...i think this is nothing to rave about but its new

There is a new career which is day care. You can do this from home which is a nice little addition to the game.
There are many more additions to the game which i wont go into now such as gnomes, bording school, field trips etc.

Overall its a good expansion pack, it does focus on family but i really like that!

If you're a Simmer - then this is a must buy! Ok, there is no new World/Town included. There are no major apparent improvements. But...but...but...but! It makes the game so much more fun and realistic than before! You now have baby prams and walking canes for old people. You also have better interactions with kids when they do naughty things. My fav is the Pillow-fighting command; its just so funny when you first play it. I wasn't that bothered at first, but I think this makes the game more rounded; all that's needed is the Pets, and a Weather EP - if they do that... It will be perfect!

There are two aspects of this game I'd like to make players aware of before they play the game. These can drain your computers power and memory so be aware before you play: The first is that in this game the new memories feature is actually a nightmare on your pcs harddrive. Sims don't get important memories like they did in the sims 2. They store up insignificant memories, such as 'went shopping', and 'went to the park'. All sims inside your neighbourhood start storing up memories and it's only the active sim you are watching at the time who stores an actual photo memory of an event. All other sims store a picture of a tree for example when visiting a park, a building when visiting a shop, etc. Every memory stored adds to your hard drive and memory and I found that it slowed down the game for my sims to have so many memories. Every sim in the neighbourhood gets a memory whenever they visit anywhere so if you change your active household you can suddenly notice 7 pages of useless memories stored.

The other thing to be aware of is the daycare career. It's not a career but a profession, and the actual job hasn't been mentioned by many reviewers so I'll start with a quick explanation. Any sim can start daycare from home. From Mondays to Fridays that sim has to be at home from 9am to 5pm to take care of toddlers and kids. Its starts with taking care of just two or three toddlers. You can hover over a toddler and see things such as 'Jane is a bit smelly' which means change her diaper. Sims with toddlers in the neighbourhood will give their toddlers to your sim to look after, and will pick them up later.
Your sims performance is measured by how well fed, clean and happy socially a toddler is when it leaves at the end of the day.
