Having the first PC game Sims 2 was not the end for me. As I found more and more expansions to buy my computer slowly started to crash - for me it was a scarifice I was willing to take. I hadn't heard a lot about Open for Business as I did for the Sims 2 and University expansion pack. I was...

As the third expansion pack for The Sims 2, Open for Business brought a completely original level to the game - being able to have your Sim own their own business, and hence "go to work" with them, earning money for your Sim at the same time. The game allows your Sim to open either a home...

“Not so much business!”

good clothes

dull, doesnt run smoothly

Ever since I was in Primary school, my friends and I have been quite obsessed with the sims! The craze started out with the Sims one, which I latched onto pretty quickly! Though when Sims 2 was first released, I didn't really bother with it. However last year I decided to buy the game, and many...

Open For Business is the last Sims expansion pack (EP) that I bought for myself. New Gameplay The biggest and most obvious new gameplay element, is the ability for sims to be able to own their own businesses. This can mean either a home business, which is much the cheaper option for your Sims, or...

Obviously I had to get this because I'm a huge sims fan. It's incredibly fun just like all the other expansion packs. Like all the others it's offering you new clothes, hairstyles, decorations, building modes and the chance to start your own business. Starting your own business can be tricky. It...

“Is it the business?!”

Increased gaming

Requires patience!

For those of you who have never heard of the Sims games, here's a brief overview:- You get to play god! You choose your characters, and make them live their lives, from going to work, falling in love, going shopping and eventually, through to death! There are many versions of the Sims games...

“Probably best EP, Very good”

published 12/04/2010

Very entertaining and enjoyable

Time consuming

To add more amusement in playing the SIms 2, they created an EP in which you can create and run yoru own businesses. It's very useful for when you're bored of your sims just driving off to work everyday, perhaps leaving the house completely empty, depending how many sims you control in a...

difficult to get your business going at first

*Sims 2: Open for Business* This is the third expansion pack for the popular Sims 2 game (not counting the christmas expansion pack, but that was more of a small add-on than expansion). This expansion finally lets you go to work with your sims, as they run a shop, hairdresser's/barber's, gym...

“A break in the business”

published 01/08/2006

Adds new gameplay

makes loading longer

This is a great new expansion packs, one of the best ones yet! There are over 125 new objects and a new town where you can not only just go to work and shop at, you will be able to live there as well! Will your sims business be thriving and bring in lots of money or will it all fall to the ground...

“A GREAT Add-On!”

published 23/01/2007

Very versatile, lots of new features

Can be even more infuriating at times!

The Sims 2: Open For Business is the first expansion pack I've actually liked the look of enough to buy, and so far I've really enjoyed it. It's pretty straightforward with what you can do on this game. Open your own business! This is, of course, much more complicated than you'd first assume...

“Improvement for Sims2”

published 21/05/2008

Made the game more fun and interactive

Timeframe of the game needs a little work

When this expansion pack came out, I was really excited. Finally, something that could add more life to the game. When I first played it, I was impressed by the added features and new interactions. It was fun for the first hour, until my Sim was no longer having fun, which made the game a lot...

More ways to make money!

But its very very hard - just like real life!

Again, the Sims expansion packs go from strength to strength! One of the problems with the Sims over the history of the game has been jobs - in that you can only take one of a set number of career paths with work taking on a "fast forward" element of the game. Your Sim goes to work and comes home...

Good graphics

Quite slow to load

Even though there are many other Sims 2 Expansion packs out now, I still think that OPEN FOR BUSINESS is the best so far. There are so many different options available to you with this expansion pack. You can create a business, selling whatever you like! This could be food, clothes, furniture...

Expands the sims 2 original game

None

The first thing anyone should know before buying Open for Business is that it's an expansion pack which requires the original sims 2 game to play, so make sure you have this first to avoid disappointment! This is the third, and in my opinion, the best expansion pack so far. It is based on the...
