The Sims 4: Seasons
Top Critic Average
Changing weather and festive traditions enrich the four-year-old life sim.
One of the best Sims 4 expansions packs so far, Seasons changes everything for your sim families with friendly bees, sinister gnomes and a chance to chat up Father Winter.
The Four Seasons represents the most complete expansion that Maxi's game has received up until now. It is not only about the weather, but it makes The Sims 4 feel like a much more real experience.

The Sims 4 Seasons is quite frankly the best expansion to come out yet. There are tons of new items, but what sets it apart are the ways it changes the game. It adds so many new activities and things to do and wonderful holidays, it honestly made me feel like this is the first must have expansion for The Sims 4.
One can hope that future expansions are so creative, and continue to allow players to create their own world to fill with their own little slices of suburbia.
Overall The Sims 4: Seasons expansion provides an entirely new experience for players and will give them another reason to revisit their Sims. I enjoyed how it changed up the daily lives of my Sims and how the holidays broke up their sometimes monotonous lives. Even though I had a serious binge while trying out the new expansion, I'm sure there are many more surprises to be found.
While it's taken far too long for it to arrive, The Sims 4 Seasons is one of the most necessary expansions that exists for the game, as the addition of weather alone adds so much to the overall experience. It's not everything it could have been, and it's definitely got some quirks here and there, but dedicated The Sims 4 players should consider this one a must-own.
Seasons makes the Sims more of a simulation and that can't be a bad thing. You could grumble that more items could have been included or other events were added besides festive holidays, but EA has effectively overhauled the personality of your creations in tiny ways while introducing new actions, ways to interact and design ideas for the home. Plus, you can ‘WooHoo' with Santa and surely that will put us on the nice list?
The Sims 4 Seasons introduces your Sims to the joys of spring, summer, fall, and winter -- and the dangers of bees, lightning, thermostats, and devious lawn gnomes. It's as quirky, weird, and funny as it sounds.
All in all, though, The Sims 4: Seasons is worthy of your time and attention if you already have the base game. The expansion packs (with the exception of Get Together, really), all bring something new to the table that adds more life to the game.
