The Sims 4 Island Living Expansion Pack

If you haven’t been living under a rock this past week, I’m pretty sure you’ve heard of the new The Sims 4 pack called Island Living. It’s an island paradise you can escape into right on your computer screen.

I’ve played a bit of it and I must say, it’s fun. The mermaids are super fun to play with, however humans are just as fun! The island culture is nice and you can do quite a few things around the three neighborhood areas. Like for example, you can cook feasts, build sandcastles, beachcomb, summon and play with dolphins (if you’re a mermaid), snorkel, fish, and live out your travel blogger dreams of going to the beach and relaxing there.

As with the Strangerville pack, however, it does have its downsides.
Here are some of the Island Living pack’s pros and cons:


  1. New Island life-inspired CAS items with a bunch of really cool, curly hairstyles!
  2. New items in build and buy. Those glass floors are to die for!
  3. Ocean travel by boats.
  4. Mermaids.
  5. New careers. Diving? Saving the ecosystem? Sign me up!
  6. The new fish traps are cool.


  1. Replay value isn’t great, you’ll get bored quickly. Especially once you’ve done everything. Doesn’t take too long to do everything either.
  2. Mermaids are a bit lackluster when it comes to the things they can do their interactions.
  3. You can’t see the Sims when they’re diving. No underwater view whatsoever. Would have been awesome to take fish photos in first person view.

I really enjoy this pack so I think it’s worth getting. However, if you’re looking for something with way more replay factor, then maybe The Sims 4 Island Living isn’t for you.
