The Sims 2: Nightlife
(hx) 01:53 PM EDT - Oct,16 2005

The Sims 2 Nightlife is the second expansion pack to the award-winning PC game, The Sims 2. The expansion adds an all-new "pleasure-seeking" life goal, as well as dating mechanics and an "attraction system" that will give the original game's quirky, gibberish-speaking characters even more ways to interact with each other and more. Find out more in this short review.

Here's quick list for everything this second expansion adds to The Sims 2:

Downtown - Downtown is a whole new neighborhood (just like the campuses in The Sims 2 University). Each neighborhood has its own downtown. You can either create a downtown using the template, or if you prefer, you can build one from scratch. Sims can also move to the downtown as well, so if you prefer to tell the story of your sims living a more metropolitan life, you can. The downtown has over 20 different lots that sims can visit, with all the variety you can think of  - restaurants, bars, bowling alleys, diners, poker clubs, etc. There are also karaoke lounges, nightclubs, card rooms, and, my personal favorite, there is even a cemetery - a great place for dates with vampires.

Your Sims Own Cars - Your Sims will be able to buy their own cars (though they're not drivable so don't expect you will drive your car) and ditch the carpool to get to work or head downtown. They range in price from the introductory hatchback all the way to the sports car. They save so much time in a career, because they give you an extra hour to get to work. But they are also so convenient for going out, as there's no need to waste time waiting for the cab. You can also use the car to make out with other sim or even WhooWhoo in it! There are five cars that are shipping with the pack 

Pleasure Seeker life aspiration - The new "Pleasure Seeker" Aspiration brings the total Aspiration count to six. Pleasure Seekers want parties, fast cars, steamy dates, and expensive toys. Yeah, these guys want nothing more than to have fun. The more active they are, the more successful they'll probably be. Be aware that pleasure seeking Sims fear anything that is painful, embarrassing or an effort.

Dating - Probably the most important addition to many players. It allows sims to really spend time with each other in a more private setting while opening up new actions like asking "What do you want?" which will allow the other sim to let you know what will make them happier. There are plenty of new ways to heat up your date - there're new romantic social interactions including a longing gaze, slow dance or a dramatic dip kiss. Depending if the date succeeds or fails, your Sims might be surprised with a romantic gift or receive the ultimate hate letter.

Visible Neighbors - You can now toggle an option to view neighbors' houses, although this will tax your processor and video card a bit.

Vampires - Vampirism is a fully fleshed-out idea with its own pros and cons. If your Sim is bitten, you're in for a whole new game. Once you see what vampirism gets you, you'll be more than tempted to get a few undead running around your streets. Vampire Sims instantly get pale skin, fangs, and eerie red eyes. None of a Vampire's needs decay, so they don't have to worry about eating or sleeping. They do not age. However, Vampires become highly susceptible during daylight. Even if they're in a room with windows, their meters will absolutely plummet. It only takes a few Sim-hours in the sun for a vampire to die. If you become tired of being a vampire you can buy a potion to cure yourself.

Goodies - over 125 New objects and items including a DJ station, photo booth, karaoke machine and more.

All in all, The Sims 2 Nightlife is a decent expansion of the original game, although it has a couple of annoying bugs. It is great fun for any Sims fan, but if you aren't, there is no point in spending your money.
