Aussie Game Geek Reviews Island Paradise


Given that Island Paradise is the tenth expansion in the Sims game, I’m going to assume that by now most people at least know what it’s about.  If not, basically the Sims is a person/people simulator. You create your Sim and their family, drop them into the world and go for it. You can get jobs, pay bills, and watch as your Sim grows. So tenth time around, what new bag of tricks does the Island Paradise bring?




Firstly, you have a whole new map to play around in; one that actually feels a lot larger than previous expansions.  As the title implies, the new map – Isla Paradiso – is a tropical paradise that comes complete with uncharted islands, beaches and diving spots.
