Very goodKatebirdlover | Aug. 25, 2015 | See all Katebirdlover's reviews »
I remember buying this game a while ago, and I really loved the new features added, mostly the imaginary friend and the prom. Although it kinda bugged me that they didn't really add much clothing and also I didn't like how sometimes the imaginary friend would be distracting and sometimes disappear in mid-air at times. But I did love how we got more options for the kids and teens to do like pranks, potions, dress up, etc. but I feel like there could have been more added. But it is a good expansion pack and if you like family themes then this is the expansion pack for you.

The downside of this expansion, you don't get a new town. Now thats a pretty big downside admittedly, that is one of my favorite parts of expansions. You may also say that the reputation system isn't a bonus because it has pretty much been added to the base game and can be at times annoying. However, its upside is that it brings something no other expansions has done. It has made me eager to have teenage sims, that is something worth buying. The interactions of pranks, the chemistry set, the prom, the mood swings, learning how to drive, Just with that generation alone this game is worth adding to your collection. The imaginary friends also make delightful companions. It is often one of the cheaper expansions and when it is on sale it is incredible. I would recommend this expansion to anyone getting bored with the day to day ways of sims.
Good for Roleplaying, but Not Much Otherwisecybrxkhan | June 11, 2013 | See all cybrxkhan's reviews »
The Sims 3: Generations adds in quite a lot of options for roleplaying during your sims' lifetime. These range from new activities to do, to different types of interactions All of these are pretty amusing and provide some good roleplay value. However, these new additions are nowhere near as substantial as that of other expansions, such as Late Night or World Adventures. Some of these I feel could have easily been included in the base game to begin with, or as part of other expansions. Ultimately, Generations, while fun and probably one of my more favorite expansions, is not a necessary one unless you're really into roleplaying. Otherwise, it's best to buy this when it's cheap and on sale.
