Requires the Sims 3 (base game) to play this expansion pack
Let your Sims swim in the ocean on a hot summer day, bob for apples in the autumn leaves, test their snowboarding skill on the half pipe, or welcome spring showers with a walk in the rain and a colorful umbrella. All-new activities, like soccer, and big seasonal festivals and celebrations bring the spirit of each season to life. Your Sims can pucker up at the kissing booth at the spring festival, or see what Halloween surprises await in the haunted house. Dress for the weather with seasonal fashions from sun dresses to raincoats and snow gear. With new foods, décor and weather effects, your Sims can enjoy the bounty and beauty of the ever-changing seasons and play with life like never before!
Delight your Sims with new activities for every season: Whether building an intimate igloo, carving a scary Jack o’ lantern, taking a plunge off the diving board, or setting off all-new fireworks, your Sim can always find new things to do throughout the year.
Join the fun with seasonal festivals: Sims can get in a snowball fight at the annual winter festival, get their faces painted at the summer festival, whoop it up at the spring dance, or bob for apples during the fall festival.
Experience the joy and challenge of changing weather: New weather effects and Sim reactions capture the power and beauty of nature! Sims can get a tan, be struck by lightning, or catch a cold!
Bring the outdoors inside: Your Sim can now learn the recipe for pumpkin pie or style their home with new furniture and décor. There are a host of new items to ring in each season. Get a tanning booth in time for summer, or ring in the holiday spirit with house lights and decorations.
Dress for the weather: Outfit your Sim in new styles for the season, including snow gear, wetsuits, raincoats and umbrellas, and new Halloween costumes!
Welcome mysterious visitors: New weather patterns aren’t the only things appearing in the sky! Befriend an alien visitor and use their UFO to abduct a neighbor, invade a community lot, or travel to the stars.

I think the only thing wrong with this expansion is that it is an expansion. It feels like it should have been apart of the base game because it adds so much to the environment of the game. Who knows, maybe we'll get that in the sims 4! But for now, this is a solid expansion, it adds a new way of seeing the game. You won't get new careers or locations, but you will get to build snowmen, enjoy costume parties, kiss a sim at the kissing booth, jump in puddles, tan in the sun and go for a swim, and thats just the beginning! I wouldn't buy it at full price, but this is an expansion that will add something to any world.

Sims 3 Seasons isn't so much an expansion to Sims 3 as it is a makeover to the feel and mood of the game. While it does not add any drastic changes to the Sims 3 formula, no new careers or cities, what it does is compliment everything Sims 3 already did making it much more immersive and fun. As said in it's title, seasons are added, this can mean summer heat waves, rain, or snow storms. All of these present new and unique opportunities for your sims to engage in. For example, on a snowy day you will see your sims eyes light up as they look out the window and see the first flakes of snow fall, and then can have all kinds of fun outside playing in it. Sims 3 Seasons won't shake the sims world, but it does make it much more enchanting and fun.
