All in all, The Sims 4: Island Living has blown me away. The Island of Sulani is simply beautiful and the implementation of the new jobs and career path, as well as all of the other fun things your Sims can get up to, has really made me fall even more in love with the Sims.

Let's not beat about the bush: The Sims 4: Island Life is one of the best add-ons EA has released. With the numerous new objects, outfits, the beautiful island of Sulani and the new careers, you won't get bored so quickly. The many details that have been incorporated into this beautiful world will stay in my memory for a long time. I also noticed that even the islanders behave differently than in the other worlds. Sulani has a much more open and friendly environment, and that's what makes playing so enjoyable. Every time I turn on the Sims, I feel like I'm on vacation. And if that's not enough for you, I'll mention it again: SEA BOY WOMEN! If you have the basic game at your disposal and are thinking about which expansion you should treat yourself to next, I highly recommend "Island Living". You really can't go wrong with this.

Island Living successfully captures the feeling of living on a tropical island, with beautiful sandy beaches and deep blue waters to explore. Sims can work to preserve the natural beauty of the islands or swim with dolphins and mermaids. There's not a lot of depth to the mermaids, which may leave some Simmers disappointed.

All of the above helps make The Sims 4’s new Island Living expansion the perfect oasis of escapism for me.
