The Sims 3 Outdoor Living Stuff Pack Review

The latest addition to The Sims 3 series is a stuff pack for the best of outdoor living. The Sims 3: Outdoor Living Stuff Pack will allow you to create an amazing backyard oasis to throw some really wild parties at. Find out more about it and if it is worth buying with this review.

Game Features
For the first time ever, your Sims can get the best in outdoor luxury for their homes. Whether they’re decorating the perfect patio, setting the mood with a cool new hot tub, or firing up a state-of-the-art grill for the ultimate BBQ, your Sims’ outdoor decor is getting a boost. Give your Sims everything they need for a stylish and comfortable outdoor living space with The Sims 3 Outdoor Living!

• Build the perfect al fresco setting for your Sims with stylish furnishings, outdoor electronics, and cozy fire pits and fireplaces.
• Give your Sims several uniquely styled hot tubs where they can relax with friends or get romantic with someone special.
• Turn up the heat with an all-new built-in countertop grill as part of your Sims’ outdoor kitchen and take their cooking to a whole new level.
• Choose from two new styles. “Garden Terrace” features elegant wrought-iron pieces, while “Sunset on the Veranda” embraces the warmth of outdoors.
• Dress your Sims in an array of chic but casual attire for a great day in the sun or a relaxing evening under the stars.

My Thoughts
The Sims 3: Outdoor Living Stuff Pack includes items that will really help with creating a beautiful backyard area to your Sim homes. I really like the items that were added with this pack, and I even use the two different styles together. It can take a while to really create what you want with your backyard oasis, but it is quite manageable with all of the new additions.

The new hairstyles and clothes that were offered don’t include all of the Sim age groups. I don’t really like this, but that seems to be how all of the expansion packs and stuff packs are. EA probably just wants you to purchase those extra items for the other age groups from their Online Store.

What was offered though, I really like. The new clothes for the females are really detailed and I’ll be using them often for my Sims. The male clothes, like most of the male clothes, are basic, but can always be customized to be exactly what you want.

Overall, I think that The Sims 3: Outdoor Living Stuff Pack is well worth the money. For $19.95 you could really only buy two nice sets from the online store (and they’d need to be on the Daily Deal sale), and this stuff pack includes enough items that would cover at least 4 sets in comparable items from their online store. So, it is a good deal. I had a good time playing with the new items and clothes, and if you are a Sims 3 fan, I think you will enjoy this stuff pack too!
