I hope a lot of people picked these up....because these are the packs that were most incomplete in regards to their themes....
IL's mermaids left a lot to be desired, not a lot of detail was put into some of the EP features, like how there's no reward for completing the mural, no underwater lots, no sand castle fail, lounge chairs were very bare bones, sims can't read or listen to music while sunbathing...no 2 sim boats...just overall very poorly made and much inferior to Island Paradise.
GTW....I hope they can improve the retail. I love OFB and this pack was just sad.....I wish we could have seen escalators, sims forming lines in the register, costumer loyalty stars, sims carrying shopping bags after making a purchase, more grocery store assets, having to go shop for clothes and ingredients like in TS2...etc.
Realm of Magic was imo not good....I just felt like it should have been an EP. Spellcasters are repetitive, there weren't a lot of new spells (considering how a lot of them were recycled), familiars were very underwhelming, the gameplay was unbalanced, I also would have liked to see a smaller cauldron...etc.
