Get Away From It All with The Sims: Vacation
By Brad Cook
Its a dream vacation that even Chevy Chase couldnt bungle, so tell your Sims to pack their bags. Theyve had their share of house parties and hot dates while livin large in SimCity, and now its time for a little trip to Vacation Island.
Aspyr Medias latest Sims expansion pack, The Sims: Vacation, offers three distinct locations on Vacation Island: a tranquil beach resort, a rugged wilderness hideaway, or a frosty winter wonderland. The game offers over 125 new objects to buy for your Sims or use when expanding the three locales, and youll enjoy the new floors and walls, characters, building tools, and more.
Vacation gives your Sims six new interests exercise, food, parties, style, Hollywood, technology, and romance as well as over 40 new ways to interact, including the flying hug. If you send a family on vacation, watch the kids behavior; they may become more unruly than usual, which will cause the resort staff to complain to their parents.
Bring Your Memories Home
If youre sending a single Sim away, they can invite someone special along for the trip, just like they can in Hot Date. A little romance might blossom that could lead to something special back home. And if that someone special declines your offer, you can still send them postcards while away or purchase gifts to bring back. You may just change their attitude. (Sims who live together must vacation together, however.)
Your Sims may also want to bring home souvenirs for themselves. They can use an object such as the metal detector to find them, or they can win prizes at the carnival games. If they stay long enough, they can qualify to win Super Souvenirs. If you have any questions, look for Kana, your tour guide.
The Sims: Vacation is available now at the online Apple Store, an Apple retail store, or a certified Apple reseller location near you, so book the perfect getaway today.
