LGR - The Sims 4 Snowy Escape Review


Gameplay and overview of the TENTH expansion pack to The Sims 4. This time it's another vacation destination thing and it's based on Japan, mostly. Several trails to hike, hills to ski and snowboard down, and onsen baths to enjoy. Yeah, a pleasant idea and certainly pretty to look at, but let's just see if it's worth $40 though.

    In all honesty, if outdoor retreat, jungle adventure and snowy escape were all rolled up into one 40 or even 50 dollar expansion pack, LGR would end up with the most positive review since the sims 3 days

    Please somebody who has bought this pack, there is a sale that ends in 2 days and I’m debating whether to get it. I can get it for £24 and I am IN LOVE with the whole Japanese culture and I love the look of the cas and build/buy. I’m not sure whether to get it but I really think this is a pack that I would love.

    As a weeb, I enjoyed it. It's not the best pack, but it's not one I regret having, either. The Build Mode objects are the main draw (kotatsu table in particular), and there's a few trad Japanese CAS items that are fun (kimonos, school uniforms, etc). I think you'll enjoy the Japanese neighbourhoods, too. The new skills aren't great; in fact, I don't think I've used any of them yet. They aren't integrated into the rest of the game and aside from maybe RP, there's no real reason to learn snowboarding, skiing, or whatever. The Festivals, as LGR says, are one and done affairs. And the Lifestyles are actually _really bad,_ ymmv but I had to disable them entirely, as they were causing serious issues, some of which could only be fixed through cheat mods and character editing. But.. if you like the look of the CAS and Build stuff, to the point where you'd seriously consider buying the pack on discount for those alone? Then yeah, will probably be worth it for you. Just don't expect much beyond the CAS and Build.

    All of these comments make me embarrassed to be part of the sims community. You’re all spoilt, greedy children who would still find something to complain about, even if all of these packs were made into one. On a side night, for the love of god let the sims 3 go already... if you love the sims 3 so much, go FUCKING DOWNLOAD IT AND PLAY IT. No one is stopping you. If it’s so great go download it. This is nothing to do with LGR though, I love his videos and they’re critical without ever being childish and bratty.

    I find it far more embarrassing to have an openly complacent view of cash grabs and corporations, where you would rather attack those who find them both to be unacceptable than solve anything whatsoever. If you want to spend $800 on a game that is a blatant downgrade in almost every regard then by all means, be that foolish.

    I really hope that Sims 5 will bring back the open-world that I grew to love in 3, despite the awful optimization it had when you played on a save for too long. i get why the removed it, But back The Sims 3 was stuck to a 32bit executable and not every desktop user had a decent multi-core/threaded CPU to help counter it. But it's 2021 now. a majority of players are now on 64bit, multi-core system with at least 8GB of ram and even an SSD. It'd be 100% doable now and we wouldn't have to sacrifice anything. i love 4's art-style and vastly improved social interactions and i would love to see that but in 3's large-interactive world space. As it stands now i hate having to load individual neighborhoods and individual lots. It completely ruins the experience knowing that i can't explore nearly as much as i would like to.

    In many ways, the work of a gamer is easy. We risk very little, yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their games and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we gamers must face, is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. But there are times when a gamer truly risks something, and that is in the discovery and defense of the *new* . The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations. The new needs friends. Last night, I experienced something new: an extraordinary pack from a singularly unexpected source. To say that both the pack and its maker have challenged my preconceptions about fine video game design is a gross understatement. They have rocked me to my core. In the past, I have made no secret of my disdain for EA's work. But I realize, only now do I truly understand what they're able to do. It is difficult to imagine more good work from EA, in this gamer's opinion, however I believe it would be fair to give them another chance. I will be returning to The Sims 4 soon, ready for more.
