TS2: University. Should I?

Archived from groups: alt.games.the-sims-2 (More info?)

I've been thinking about getting the Sims 2 University, but i'm not quite
convinsed that it's worth it. All that looks good in having is the pool
table and the uni itself. I know very little about the game and i was hoping
for some advice if i should spend my $$$ on it.

Not Sure

    Well, that's pretty much all that is in Uni. There's very little new
    objects other than the pool table.

    work

    Once you have played an educated Sim, you will wince when you go back to
    playing their rough and uncultured elders. A fully university educated
    Sim will have 6 want slots and two locks. Just like in real life,
    education translates into better health and a longer life, since they can
    fulfill more wants, live more of their life in platinum mode and have
    plenty of Elixir of Life. Eventually they may reach their life goal (new
    feature) and live out the rest of their life in platinum mode. They are
    certainly going to listen to the music from their college years for the
    rest of their life, because it is the best yet, despite other stations
    also being extended with new music. And once you get used to mobile
    phones, you will wonder how you ever did without them. Just don't get any
    of those MP3 players, they are disgustingly addictive and you can never
    wrench them from your Sims as long as they live. It's better to let the
    Sims get their fun from playing ball, or a good pillow fight among
    friends... Or perhaps make a band with the new three instruments: Guitar,
    bass and drums. And don't get me started on the new ability to convince
    irritating neighbors (or at worst the paperboy) to clean your house for
    you for free. Finally you can get back at Komei for kicking over your
    trash can last year!

    Really, it's a pretty big difference. Lots of small upgrades all over the
    gameplay. I'm glad I bought it, although the game is now getting a bit too
    slow on my old machine. If you have a fairly recent video card (last three
    years or so) you should be fine. Otherwise avoid it. Because you're not
    likely to ever go back.

    That settles it, I am definitely NOT interested!!
    Sims should not be like real life, IMO!
    Heck my sims want too much as is...........they get one raise and want every
    expensive item they can think of :(

    Yes, there's just the pool table, if you happen to ignore every single other
    new and useful object that comes with the expansion, not to mention the
    gameplay changes that comprise the bulk of the expansion.

    Heh. To each their own. Since I often play Knowlegde Sims, who mostly
    want improbable things like "be saved from death" or "see a ghost" (in
    neighborhoods with no ghosts), it's nice to be able to give them something
    they want before they start to despair. ^_^
