Kids say (4 ):

Unlike other The Sims 3 expansion packs, The Sims 3: Supernatural focuses on the customization of Sims characters. While other expansion packs may give players a handful of new outfits or costumes, this one actually allows players to choose from human and non-human characters. This leads to an entirely new kind of virtual life for players to live out, as instead of getting a 9-to-5 job, they are now tasked with learning new magic skills or honing their psychic abilities. While it is somewhat antithetical to the game's goal of creating a realistic simulation of life, it adds a brand new element to the game that will no doubt grab the attention of new and long-term players alike.

Did we miss something on diversity?
