China – Shang Simla
World Adventures Expansion Mini Review
Please enjoy the slideshow of Tennis’ adventures and if you want read down for my thoughts on the expansion 🙂
Tennis is on her way to China, Shang Simla which is apparently based of of the Forbidden City in Beijing but i dunno about that. Either way it’s quite beautiful even on my low graphic settings.
The main thing the land has to offer is martial arts training, Tennis utilized this thoroughly and sparred with sims Wei Pei and Li Yuan. She won against the fire 2-0 but lost to the guy in the green. The sims here bow when greeting and eat with chopsticks which was a nice addition.
What I didn’t like if how little people and town life is going on, there are other tourists which is cool but it’s pretty empty which is kinda the opposite of real China but then again this is a game and it’s supposed to be based in some small town not the city.
Tennis also explored under the Halls of the Lost Army where many traps and doodads lay. She solved the puzzle bringing the desired object to the man who requested it. This can be pretty fun exploring and solving each puzzle but can get tiring quickly. One thing that was cool is that you need to finish the missions in China to get a super power which comes in use when you go to Paris and Egypt the other two locations for travel.
Other than the tomb exploring there isn’t much to do and there’s about 2 skills you can learn along with some hidden skills. You can also learn three songs in each country and your sim can sing them to people and be obnoxious but I like it.
Only one person was mean to Tennis her name was Mu Lan Jun Fai, but other than that Tennis had a fun time sadly the vacation times only last 3 days at first and can extend once you gain visa levels. While I feel like they could add more it was the first expansion and it does add some fun to the game.
