Die Sims 4: Snowy Escape Review
Most people can’t travel right now, but fans of The Sims 4 can take a virtual vacation on Mount Komorebi for extreme winter sports and relaxing mindfulness. Die Sims 4: Snowy Escape is the latest expansion pack for the game, introducing players to a new, beautiful world inspired by Japanese geography and culture.

Players can choose to live or vacation in Mount Komorebi, a vibrant new world divided into three distinct neighborhoods: Senbamachi, Yukimatsu, and Wakaba. Senbamachi is the more traditional Japanese mountain village with hiking trails and traditional Japanese architecture. Yukimatsu is the mountain where ledges can climb, ski, sledge and snowboard. Wakaba is the newest part of the city and has a young, urban Japanese flair.

As expected, the extension adds new ones Sims Content including items, activities, and a system of feelings and lifestyles to breathe new life into Sims and influence their autonomous behaviors and interactions with one another. The new items are hit and miss, and there are fewer Create A Sim items than players can expect from an addition of this size and price. The activities open up new opportunities for Sims and offer Sims at different stages of life new places and opportunities to leave the house, meet up with friends or loved ones, and make memories. Unfortunately, the game is full of bugs and glitches that can prevent Sims and players from having the exciting and relaxing vacation they were hoping for.

The first time players go on vacation to Mount Komorebi, they must select a rental property and purchase supplies. If traveling with a toddler, they will likely need to make sure they have a toddler bed or pet kit when bringing their furry friends as players on a rental lot will not have access to Build / Buy mode. In the base game, players can turn any ticket in any residential world into rental property and take a vacation in any of the worlds they are in Sims 4.

Players should choose their accommodation carefully. In three separate games and three separate rental spaces, Sims experienced a near-fatal fire by the fireplace, a constant need to swim laps in the pool, and the desire, but inability, to use the computer even to order supplies like climbing gear for the mountain . While this is par for the madmen Sims Of course, players might dislike that when so many lots are bugged and Sims are unable to move around freely or complete tasks safely.

Sims can go to the mountain and try to reach the slopes, but more than likely they will be sent back to the house quickly. In three different games, the first days of vacation on the mountain were clouded by massive snowstorms that almost froze Sims to death. If a Sim has been unfortunate enough to be caught outside in poor weather conditions, players who did Get to work Installers may find that these Sims wake up the next day with a raging illness that further limits their enjoyable vacation experience.

On bad weather days, players can switch lanes and move their Sims to one of the other neighborhoods instead, where the weather conditions differ slightly. You can swim in the Wakaba River or take a hike to a temple or cave in Senbamachi. You have to be careful though. No matter what, Sims walking together will stop and be attacked by a giant centipede, giant hornet, or other stinging and biting beetle. This seems to separate Sims from the rest of the party, who will travel forward without the unfortunate Sim, unless they too are attacked by an animal. Trying to meet again to continue the hike does not seem to work, and players may need to regroup all of their Sims at the beginning of the trail to continue the hike. However, this makes them vulnerable to another attack.

When Sims finally make it up the mountain, they may find that they cannot travel as a group. Despite the “Ride to the Top With …” interaction, Sims keep wandering off to either buy groceries from the vending machines, go to the bathroom, play games on their phone, or take a selfie with the city mascot, Yamachan. It is more likely that they will have to drive and participate separately. The only sport that doesn’t seem to be affected is tobogganing, and it’s predictably adorable to see a family or couple hop into a sled together and fly down a bunny slope.

Sims need to improve their skiing and snowboarding skills to tackle more difficult slopes. With time and practice, you will try more difficult movements. The animations when Sims descend the slopes change which means a Sim may take a different path down the mountain and may fall. This variety makes the experience feel more realistic, although a player can only watch their Sim slide down a mountain on their own as many times before they get bored. Players also have no control over the type of tricks a Sim will perform.

After a day of fun and excitement, Sims can relax in the traditional bathhouse hot spring or enjoy a drink in one of the local bars and clubs in Wakaba and Senbamachi. Otherwise, they can return to their accommodation and cook a warm pot dish. While the food is cooking, the group will gather and chat, which was notoriously difficult in other Sims games. This can lead to feelings as well, and family members, friends, or couples can experience new feelings of closeness and shared memories with one another.

The real star of this expansion is this sentiments system that is added to it Sims 4 Base game in a free patch. This system allows Sims to make memories with each other and experience those memories differently. It will also strengthen the bond between Sims and create a type of AI empathy where Sims who are close to each other feel each other’s sadness, joy, or pain. This system is fantastic and should be expanded and deepened in future patches. The lifestyles system is exclusive to Snowy Escape and would have been an excellent addition too. Unfortunately, although I spent almost a week in season traversing Mount Komorebi and developing habits, no lifestyle seemed to unlock.

The platform tool in Build mode and many of the Build and Buy items are likely to impress, especially for Sims fans who love building houses and lots. There are some great new objects and options out there to create the perfect home or venue, both on Mount Komorebi and in any other neighborhood in the game. Platforms are versatile and modular and add a new dimension to the architecture in the game.

Die Sims 4: Snowy Escape could definitely use a few patches before it can be called a true winter wonderland. Right now, players will need to be patient for this vacation, which has some interesting elements but too many hiccups or setbacks to let them shine through the whiteout terms of its mistakes.
