Het is nu ruim een week na de release van De Sims 3 Na Middernacht en de betere reviews over deze derde uitbreiding voor De Sims 3 laten een beetje op zich wachten.
2 reviews hebben we al gemeld op onze site: Lazy Game Reviews (video) en de IGN Review, maar er zijn nog een paar andere reviews online gekomen die misschien wel de moeite van het lezen waard zijn. Je vind ze in de (meer lezen…).
Hopelijk komen er snel wat betere, en wie weet ook, Nederlandstalige reviews online. We houden het in ieder geval in de gaten.
But even with problems like these, Late Night is packed with a surprising amount of content. We didn’t even touch on Mixology (the game’s “family friendly” way of saying “bartending”) or the new instruments (bass, drums, piano and keyboard) or skinny dipping in hot tubs, not to mention the standard bevy of new items, clothing and hair options that come with the expansion. You can even hire a butler, which of course would be better if you could also be Batman.

Despite the somewhat awkward integration of its new features The Sims 3: Late Night is another fan-pleasing addition to the series. Needless to say, more bells and whistles aren’t going to convert anyone who was unconvinced by the main game, but there are plenty more hours of gameplay for the diehards to sink their fangs into. None of its gains are particularly game-changing, so this is a safe release for EA given the sheer size of the franchise’s existing fanbase. What’s more, it’s a title with its target audience firmly in mind, so Sims fans will find that this is one late night that’s worth staying up for.

Ultimately, The Sims 3: Late Night is more than just a reloaded version of the Sims 2 “Night Life” expansion. More importantly, it adds a considerable amount of new content to your Sim-world, with a whole lot of bang for your buck. New traits, careers, items and a new urban world full of nightclubs, bars and other hangouts gives your Sims more options for how to spent their time. “Late Night” brought back the perfect mixture of the old while introducing the new, and it is easy to spend way too much time on just one of the features—like becoming a local celebrity or a vampire—that this third expansion adds a tremendous amount of hours to the Sims 3 video game clock.

Be warned, your city will never be the same. In addition to the spotlights are also the bloodsuckers that prefer shadows. Unlike previous expansions to The Sims 2, where being a vampire was amusing but horribly inconvenient after a short time, the mechanics and more of the advantages of going undead have been administered in The Sims 3: Late Night.
