“The Sims 4: Vintage Glamour Stuff” Review
It feels like we were only just talking about latest “The Sims 4: City Living Expansion Pack”, and EA Games and Maxis have already released another stuff pack for December 2016 along with lots of new updates for the base game.
If you are a fan of The Great Gatsby, Old Hollywood or Art Deco then “The Sims 4: Vintage Glamour Stuff” you might want to consider adding this to your game! The latest Stuff Pack has all you need to create a Jazz Cocktail bar, or Hollywood Boudoir for the stars. The pack’s main attractions include the Globe Bar, the Vanity Table and the newest NPC; the return of the Butler.
New options in Create A Sim include sparking accessories, ravishing hairstyles and “head turning” gowns for the ladies, and some equally charming high fashion for the gents. There are plenty of new objects in buy mode, including lots of colour schemes to match any personality or traits. I went with the good old fashioned “Art Deco” black and gold trim for my sims, but there is also pinks and whites, blues and whites and even just plain black. I did find that there was one lamp which doesn’t fit the theme, and one chair design that didn’t play nice with the tables — but aside from that, the furnishings and decor are stunning for those who like to live in the lap of luxury with a twist of vintage charm.
Let’s talk about the stars of the screen now; The Globe Bar and the Vanity Table. Personally, the Vanity Table really impressed me! There are so many options for changing make-up, and it only lasts until the next-sim-day so you don’t have to worry about going in to CAS and changing it depending on the event! The animations are really good too, and seeing the kids play with make-up really made me laugh. The Globe Bar is a really trendy take on a new bar, and it reminded me of the original bars from “The Sims 1: Living Large”. Of course, some really fun and enjoyable animations to go with this one too.
And last but not least: The Butler. Finally, someone to obey my every whim and clean, garden, cook, look after the children — ahh it’s really the life. I had a few problems at first and I wish there was an option to click on the butler, other than on the actual NPC. I kept losing him in my 3 story luxury apartment and then, a glitch meant he was gone from the lot forever. Ah well, I guess it’s back to my chores again…
Overall, a very enjoyable pack. I really like the theme, and I think it ties in nicely with the latest expansion pack too. Check out “The Sims 4: Vintage Glamour Stuff” if you are a fan of The Sims, a fan of Hollywood Greats or a fan of 1920’s Themed Decor, because I think you might be pleasantly surprised with this one.
