Do not buy this game for your children!!!

Very inappropriate for children. My kids (ages 8, 11 and 12) played it with a friend before i realized how terrible it was.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Its the game that is mature, Not the DLC.

Here we have some really expensive DLC which is not the bad thing, The game is the mature bit. Sexual content is the main concern as in all sims games where they get into "action" rather a lot. Not looking too good so far. You can beat people up but you don't see it..Plus you have to make them really angry in the first place. Not sure about language really but I'm sure there is some :)

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (6 ):

Fast Lane Stuff is a big improvement over High-End Loft Stuff in terms of what the expansion pack has to offer. Whereas High-End Loft Stuff only catered to rich, materialistic Sims, Fast Lane Stuff allows players to create four distinct types of car enthusiast. And it's not just about the car either; thanks to dozens of new accessories and clothing - from F-1 firesuits, riding helmets, and hotrod flame shirts to road signs and toolboxes - players can outfit their Sims to look the part and create garages and showrooms to make the vehicles front and center.
