With the University expansion pack, our old friend, Sims 2, goes to an all new, strange place: college.
There's a lot of new stuff added to the game with this pack. Heck, it's practically a game all on its own! You get a new life-stage for your Sims (young-adult), new aspirations (including ones like "First Woo-Hoo!"), eleven majors your Sim can pick from, fraternities, dorms, campus hang-out spots, places where you can work part time, all new gizmos and doo-dads, etc, etc!
Best of all, when you graduate and your Sim enters the working world, they will almost certainly be hired at the fourth or fifth level of their career! Plus you'll already have a great many skills (especially if you raised your Sim from an infant), and friends, so once you get out into the "real" world, you should have no problem advancing.
There's no down side at all to this game (well, except for the fact that I've never managed to get my Sim into a frat or sorority. Probably because, like me, they're pretty anti-social. I am a gamer, after all). There's all the usual Sims elements we know and love plus all the extras! A total win for "Sims 2" players everywhere!
