The Sims 2: University review

Rock and roll all ni-i-i-ght, and study every day


  • New musical instruments
  • Beef up sims before they hit "real life"
  • Frats
  • sororities


  • Can't enroll older sims
  • These are dry
  • booze free campuses
  • Why can't you seduce a professor?

Ah, the college years - that magical space in between being a reckless teenager and having to face life as a responsible grown up. Given the new and improved sims’ life cycle Maxis added to The Sims 2 (letting sims start as toddlers, grow into maturity, and die), this little reprieve from the heavy burdens of adulthood was an obvious addition, and as the first Sims 2 expansion pack, Sims 2: University adds a huge amount of content, and well as a heck of a lot of fun and charm.

DescriptionOn the other hand, what kind of mutant goes to university just to study? If you want to, you can just as easily fart around and do nothing more constructive than play darts and hit on anything with legs.
