The world of The Sims just got larger. With the Livin' It Up, you'll be able to give your little humans five new career paths (including slacker and journalist), new objects (could that lantern hold a genie?), and new decors (how does Vegas lounge grab ya?). More than just cosmetic additions, there is also an assortment of new situations for your Sims to deal with. Without spoiling too much, let's just say you're going to want the name of a good Sim exterminator.
Whether you're the occasional Sims player or the die-hard fan that knows after playing it for a hundred hours you are congratulated, The Sims--Livin' It Up expansion pack will rekindle any flame starting to go out for this game.
The Sims--Livin' It Up expansion pack has more swings and bells on it than a Christmas tree in a castle, and of course in true "Sims" style all this is possible.
Whether or not you choose to be the king of the castle, with your turrets, armoury, banqueting hall and dungeon--skeleton in cage on application--or a hip funky Austin Powers-esque man in your retro 60s psychedelic bachelor pad is up to you.
The range of new gadgets and gizmos to play with is just as impressive--and if you are an avid Web fan then you will notice some of the downloads here, especially the gerbil and balloons--but Maxis have realised this and have been busy creating many other features.
New career paths with over 50 jobs have now been included. Become a psychic investigator or a musician, a slacker or a journalist and they all come with new toys to play with at home. If this isn't enough, the game also includes new neighbourhoods to try out if you've run out of space in the current one, although the only drawback is that you can't move from neighbourhood to neighbourhood.
The Sims--Livin It Up is a great addition to the original, having you completely hooked again in no time, and saving up for those ever elusive expensive items, in this case the automatic robot maid.--Stuart Miles

Oh yea, and the website for it is useless as well, there's no way of contacting anyone to ask for help.
The game needs the disc to always be in the drive while playing but this doesn't impede on gameplay, although I did notice the intro movie didn't play well on my quad-core vista machine (oh well). The actual game though works fine. The great new features of the livin it up! expansion pack are obvious from the start. Rather than being trapped to just one neighbourhood, you straight away now have 5. Neighbourhoods 3,4 and 5 are completely blank but number 2 has some pre-made houses and even the Mashuga family living there already. You can play with this family to get an instant example of the new décor and objects available in the game. And the expensive medieval house in this neighbourhood even boasts a new medieval toilet....one that doesn't flush!
Along with a whole host of new décor and objects which range from 60s/70s to the medieval you get a whole host of new features. New outfits, some medieval, new careers, I particularly like the computing career as the pay gets very good towards the end.
The new objects are the real bonus that bring this game alive and make it the funny silly game that we all have come to love. The genie lamp can be rubbed once a day to bring out the genie who is not too good with his wishes and is only successful about half of the time (little fun fact: the voice of the genie is actually sims creator WIll Wright!)
There is a voodoo doll which seems cruel but check out what happens if sims perform voodoo while the target is in the same room. The telescope can sometimes cause your sim a random abduction, when they come back all they talk about is aliens. The crystal ball allows your sims the chance to change their personality traits by one point each time (but a strange thing happens when they use this object-a bug- they can never wash their hands in the sink again!). The servo is the most expensive object but a fun robot to have around the house. The heart bed is the first time sims can woohoo in the game and is why the rating for this game increased. One more object to tell you about that brings this game alive for those that don't know. The clown painting in the original game can now summon Sunny the clown to your home, he's a real annoyance but again it all lends to the funny gameplay of the sims.
The original sims has a magic and humour that I believe is lost in the sims 2, 3, etc. And I'd recommend this game to anyone who can get it to work on their pc. This expansion pack really brought the game alive and I've only touched on some of the new features it offers. I would advise though that to get the most out of it and to understand everything that can happen (including the cryptic crystal ball messages) that if you can get it please buy the prima strategy guide for livin it up!. You won't be disappointed and it really helped me understand how to get rid of the clown, how to deal with the chemistry set, the guinea pig virus, etc.
Great game, really recommend!
5 new carrer paths,
15 new skins for your Sims,
Loads of different new objects including a robot and a magic lamp
and tonnes of new wallpaper, floors, doors and windows.
Basically loads of great new stuff to help your Sims achieve lifelong happiness.
If you are a die-hard fan of the Sims, or if you are getting bord with it, then you simply MUST buy this expansion because its just great and well worth every penny.
