Sims 2 University. It was a long time before I decided to buy the guide to this pack. Usually I am the first to have both the game and guide, but the University guide never really appealled to me to begin with. After trying hopelessly to track down the "secret society" and other parts of the game I gave in and brought myself a second hand copy a bargain at just £5.50 off ebay including Postage.
The book holds lots of information across 462 pages. The first 110 are solely for the Sims 2 university...the other 252 cover the basics for the Sims 2!
So what do you get for your money? Well the book is divided up into 6 Parts and has 36 chapters in total.
Chapter 1: This covers whats new in the Sims 2 University. Changes to the core game. College Features. Neighbourshoods and college towns.
Chapter 2: Anatomy of a young sim adult - not a child, but not yet an adult LOL Young adult sim needs. How to create a young adult.
Chapter 3: Influence and lifetime wants.
Chapter 4: Getting into college. Moving Sims in. Grants and scholarships. Pre-college wants and fears.
Chapter 5: Year structure and semester system. College console and the personal academic clock Majors.Promotion and academic probation.Graduation.
Chapter 6: Living at College. Residential options. Eating at college.Bills. Earning money at college. College parties.CAmpus Directory. Secret society. Burglars. School/Work/Socializing Balance.
Chapter 7: New Careers and challenges. New career overview.
Chapter 8: LIsts of new objects.
Chapter 9: New Soials. Social Interaction Directory.Object based interactions.
Chapter 10: New NPCs.
Chapter 11: Build mode additions.
Chapter 12: College Town mode and creating custom colleges. Anatomy of college Town. Editing a college town. Creating a new college template. College essientials. Speciality lots.
Chapter 13: Campus tour and student Bodies.
From Chapter 14 it is all about the Sims 2 Core game!
I managed to get the information I wanted out of the book and still use it now as a guide when I am playing the game. It has been used more times than I thought I would use it so have had my monies worth out of it.
Would I buy it at full price? Probably not no, I don't think it is worth £12.99 for 110 pages of a new game! I think they could of added more to the book and maybe more to the expansion pack...but thats another review!! LOL If you can puick up a cheap copy somewhere then it would be a good read for ANY sims fan, but no use to anyone else!!!
