Product Description
The Sims Vacation Review
Being a Sim must be pretty nice. Through the magic of expansion packs, the little virtual people have been given party favors (House Party), magic genies (Livin' Large), and hot dates (um... Hot Date). With all these creature comforts, what more could a Sim want? Well, how about a family vacation to a luxury fantasy resort? Vacation Island is an idyllic place that has sun, fun, and beaches on one side of the island, snow and skiing on the other, and, in the middle, a forest perfect for camping. A trip to Vacation Island is the perfect reward for your hard-working Sims, and a fun diversion for you--like all Sims expansions, Vacation is full of quirky Sims-style humor, and not everything on Vacation Island is good for your Sims.

A trip to Vacation Island isn't cheap; you have to pay for travel and accommodations for the entire family, as well as entertainment. And just like a real vacation, you can run out of money fast. Thankfully, while on vacation your Sims' needs are slowed down significantly. They're having fun, and you don't have to micromanage them nearly as much as you do at home. This allows you to sit back more and just observe your Sims playing with the often-funny new stuff. Stuff like a boardwalk Whack-a-Will (named for Sims creator Will Wright) game, a guy dressed as a shark who tries to terrorize the tourists, and new activities such as camping, building snowmen, playing volleyball, snuggling on a bear skin rug (or picnic blanket), and hitting the ski courses and snowboard half-pipe. When it's time to go home, your Sims can take a few reminders of the trip, both beneficial (souvenirs that increase happiness) and detrimental (a common tropical illness). Hint: Fans who remember the Brady Bunch Hawaiian vacation episode would do well to learn from Greg Brady's mistake. --Bob Andrews

5Vacation?!?!, Jan 29, 2023
Whoa! What a game! In this vacation game, you could do more actions then the actions in the neighborhood. And this is like the same thing like YOU do when you go to vacation. It's almost the same thing! And if the Sims can talk to you, they probably would say thank you for bringing them to vacation. I like the game because, the Sims can play games, win tickets, buy prizes, rent tents and - this is interrupt because there is SO much things you could do and less time. I noticed that every new Sims game you install, you get more things.

If I was in one of the hotels I would play all day long and forget about eating or my energy. I would fish,(If my dad lets me.)and swim too. One of my FAVORITE things to do is build hotels. If I hadn't seen this game, I would have only read, draw, Play Battle Front(A Playstation game.),Do other electronics, sleep and play cards.

Note: If you have a hard time with your money, click the Shift key, the control key (Ctrl), and C at a time.then, first write rosebud, then do it again and do !;!;!;!;!;!;! until it fills the whole line. Bye!

5sasha's review, Dec 27, 2022
I really like everything about this game! I like that the Sims can go on vacation several times. You can buy one rug that costs a's a white bear rug that the Sims can sit on. There are more beds to choose from when you want to buy a bed. Another thing I really like about this game is when the Sims rent a metal detector. They find really funny things like old boots, money, and treasure! You can get a lot of prize tokens and get lots of stuffed animals. There isn't anything that I don't like about this game.

3The Sims Vacation Expansion Pack, Nov 14, 2022
I rated this 3 stars because well, it's not just as good as the other Sims expansion packs. At first, I thought this game would be cool, but I hardly even go on vacation! It's really a waste! I recommend other Sims expansion packs. I have this, Unleashed, and Superstar. I'm not sure if you have a lot it slows down the computer. But 3 is fine. (I guess! It works fine on my computer!) That's why I'm not sure to buy anymore Sims. But I do say Sims is a really cool game! Just not this one, it's really boring! Sims2 is out, my cousin bought it and it was really really really really slow! But I say Sims2 looks cool... But hopefully when any of you buy it, it won't be as slow as my cousin's! Cuz it better not be slow if it's 50 bucks! I hope my review helped! :)?

3EA Needs a Vacation For This One, Oct 27, 2022
The Sims: Vacation expansion pack isn't really drooled over much. This is probably the second expansion pack which enables Sims to leave the neighborhood and go to Vacation Island which is divided into lots based on themes like the woods; and snow and ski resorts.

The only positive thing I can think about it is it's a good place for your Sims to runaway to especially if they're in the makings of becoming a star. Unlike Hot Date, here sims (still on the fame-seeking ones)'ll have a chance to mend their relationships and their Fun, while even though this is enabled in downtown, sims couldn't sleep there. But on Vacation Island, sims can spend as many days as they like and contantly refresh themselves before going back to face the music.

Apart from that, this expansion pack wouldn't really be missed if it wasn't for The Sims Superstar.
