Ah, nothing like a nice vacation. A chance to get away from the world, see new places, meet new people and have a great time! Why when I was growing up one of my favorite movies was National Lampoon's Vacation (20th Anniversary Special Edition), and if there's one thing I learned from that, it's this: leave the kids at home.
Thankfully EA takes that lesson to heart with this fine expansion pack. Yes, your Sims get to take a nice bacation, but the kids stay back at the house, out of your hair!
You get to pick from three vacation spots: the mountains, an island paradise and an Asian-themed place. While there, you can learn new things (like the hula and fire-dancing), eat new foods (sushi!), and meet new people! You'll also get to go on various tours and adventures, plus spend huge amounts of money, and when you're done, if all goes well, your Sims will return to their real lives feeling rejuvinated and alive! If all goes poorly, well... yeah. Life will suck for them.
This is perhaps one of the most fun expansion packs out there. Far more enjoyable than The Sims 2: Open for Business Expansion Pack, which I didn't really care for. The rewards your Sims can get are tangible and you'll have lots of fun earning them! The only downside to the game? Well, you can't save while on vacation. Otherwise, it's great fun! Worth every simolean you spend on it!
