With all highly successful PC games, you can almost expect an expansion pack that builds upon the original; fans always desire more action before actual sequels are released. The Sims is no different. Developed by Maxis, The Sims: Livin' Large incorporates various situations with five newly added career tracks and 50 jobs.
For those unfamiliar with The Sims, here's the gameplay summary in a nutshell: using a cursor-driven interface, you'll either create or choose a pre-manufactured family and control the way each person lives their lives. Depending on your personal preferences, you'll decide how each person interacts with others (through pre-determined traits) and how comfortable the living conditions are; you have the option of building houses, choosing various decors, and buying household appliances. You can even choose career paths for individual members of the family.
