Sims 3 University Life (Electronic Arts)
Sometimes it’s fun to escape your own life for another. Recent simulation video game can give you some release into an entertaining world…just for a while. Sims 3 University Life opens a new chapter on the PC for young adult Sims to elder Sims and anyone in between. This entertaining expansion pack (a welcome encore from the Sims 2 University & University Life Collection) involves new career tracks, new items, and several new opportunities, especially on the social side. Players must reach adult status with their characters to attend Sims University. Living options include rent your own house or joining other Sims in the dorm or frat/sorority house. The new social groups include nerds, rebels and jocks. It’s fun to play with the social types in this sandbox game, which includes several key choices that affect gameplay (e.g. whether or not to cheat on exams). Tech options also factor into gameplay like the new smart phone that lets Sims blog.
Players have the underlying goal of improving their Sim’s life by landing that high level entry job when they graduate, so learning and development are the key paths to progression. Players must balance their Sim’s academic work with academic studies and stress relieving recreation and social activities. Degrees include business, technology, science and medicine, fine arts, communication and physical education. Earning a strong degree can make a big difference when your Sims go back home. Endless content creates constant opportunity and great gameplay moments. Requires The Sims3 to play (***1/2, rated T for crude humor, sexual themes, and violence, also available on Mac).
