GamingLives finally gets its hands on The Sims 3 University Life and tries to work out whether it has been worth the long wait since the original, released back during Sims 2. Not quite, would be the short answer.
"Spool forward to The Sims 3, and this generation has been dragging somewhat, hampered by numerous gameplay issues, glitches, dissatisfaction at EA’s near-extortionate Sims Store, and a roster of lacklustre, cheap-feeling expansions. While Maxis were slowly churning out new pieces of the Sims universe, University seemed like a glaring omission until, finally, it arrived to be the tradition-breaking ninth expansion. This time, however, if doesn’t feel half as exciting or enjoyable and I was left feeling somewhat underwhelmed."
