This opinion is based off of my first impressions from screenshots and the trailer, so after the game is released, things could change.
I have always played the typical suburban family when it comes to my sims. So when the rumors of a Supernatural expansion pack were confirmed, I kind of cringed. I was hoping for something more like Free Time, University, or Seasons from The Sims 2. Instead I was hit in the face with fairies, witches, and werewolves. From looking at the trailer, it looks like it could be a lot of fun to play around with for a while, but I am not the type of person that will create any of those three supernatural creatures more often than a regular human sim. It is just not how I play the game.
There will be a new fortune teller profession that I am excited about. The new furnishing items looked pretty neat as well. There is supposed to be new hairstyles, clothing options, and sliders in CAS, along with a new town called Moonlight Falls. Of course Moonlight Falls will be filled with supernatural beings, so I don’t know how much time I will spend there in my normal gameplay.
All in all, I am not as excited for this as I would have been for a weather or university themed expansion, but I still think that it will be interesting to play. I do not dislike this expansion pack, but I’m not in love with it either. I think it has potential to be one of those expansion packs that I fall in love with once I play it for a while, like World Adventures. We shall see. I will be getting the limited edition version and doing an LP on this expansion.
From the looks of it, there will be a new neighborhood. But they have to have a new neighborhood, right? I’m really excited about that. I also saw some great new items for CAS and Buy/Build mode. I must admit, I’m getting a little excited. Not like over the top excited, but still excited. It also looked like there were zombies at the end of the trailer. Please EA, let there be a zombie apocalypse. Lol. Here is the trailer:
