I haven’t had a chance to play The Sims 4: Get Together expansion too much yet, but I’ve loved what I’ve seen so far. When they first announced the expansion, I thought it was just basically more party stuff and not much else. When they fully explained the club aspect, however, my opinion changed. Now that I’ve played it, I can see that this expansion brings a new layer of interaction to the game. Instead of just having your Sim’s friends come over to your house and randomly play on your computer or take out your trash (what is up with that?), you can actually specify what the group does together. It seems so simple, but it’s really quite a new thing for the series. I’ve only set up one fairly boring club (they drink coffee and read books), but I’m sure I’ll do some more creative things with it soon.

The new town of Windenburg is fantastic; it’s a very pretty place with some great places to hang out. For some reason, I was under the mistaken impression that Windenburg would be more like a vacation spot and not a place to live. I was thrilled to see your Sims can live there if you wish. The expansion also has the usual new clothes, hairs, build mode stuff and more. There’s some really good stuff in there that I’m looking forward to building with. I am a little sad that they didn’t add a new life state to this expansion, but on the other hand, I’m not sure that any of the life states really would have fit with the expansion’s flavor. Overall, I think Get Together is a excellent entry to the series and brings plenty of new life to the game.
