This may NOT be a revised edition at all.

I have checked with Amazon customer service and they are as curious as I was after receiving this title.

The listing indicates a 2007 copy right for the revised edition and it comes at 368 pages.

If you compare covers of the standard edition and this one - they are identical, no flag or starburt logo saying anything about Nightlife being included. Also, this book retains ONLY a 2004 copyright, no revision or second edition update to 2007.

Also, compare the standard guide and the Nightlife guide: the std edition is 368 pages and Nightlife is 244. It is impossible to have jammed those two books together to make a Revised Edition still with only 368 pages! I understand they can change typeface, font size and add overall content compression, but at best you'd only save a portion of original mass.

This does not seem to be a fault solely of Amazon.ca - I have checked the Amazon.com site, a competing Canadian online book seller's site, and Prima's own page. And they all show the standard edition coverart and page count, but note 2007 copyright and that it is supposed to be two original guides in one.

If there is any doubt on the basic info above, opening the book yields not one iota of Nightlife mention. There is no section for it in the Table of Contents, there is no "what's new" section of the book. It appears to be just the original contents guide. It is possible the misunderstanding is in the wording "We're combining the hit The Sims 2 and The Sims 2 Nightlife guides into one book ..." Perhaps instead of just joining the two titles, they have removed a lot of repeat info from Nightlife and then added content realted to it directly to the same sections in the base game guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whoa... March 8 2008
By Samantha Doyle - Published on Amazon.com
When I ordered this, I was expecting a small, slim little guide with a few tips and strategies. I mean, how much could there be to a computer game? So as you can imagine, I was surprised when I pulled out a thick, 366 page book that broke down everything you could ever need to know (and more) about The Sims 2 into sections, explaining and describing everything, in detail, from Sim genetics, pre-made neighborhoods and the pre-made families that inhabit them, NPCs, Sim memories, Sim death, building a house... okay, I'm confusing myself (and probably you). Here is the complete chapter/section list:


Part One: The Basics
-Chapter One: Getting To Know The Sims 2
-Chapter Two: Getting Started

Part Two: Creating Families, Neighborhoods, And Sims
-Chapter Three: Welcome To The Neighborhood
-Chapter Four: Create-A-Sim And Genetics
-Chapter Five: Simology

Part Three: It's A Lot Like Life
-Chapter Six: The Six Ages Of Sims: Playing The Generation Game
-Chapter Seven: Needs
-Chapter Eight: Aspirations, Wants, And Fears
-Chapter Nine: Skills
-Chapter Ten: Careers And School
-Chapter Eleven: Social Interactions
-Chapter Twelve: Family Life
-Chapter Thirteen: NPCs
-Chapter Fourteen: Community Lots
-Chapter Fifteen: Objects
-Chapter Sixteen: Disasters, Disease, And Death

Part Four: All In The Family: Sims In Action
-Chapter Seventeen: The Ex-Machina Family Blog

Part Five:
-Chapter Eighteen: Build Mode
-Chapter Nineteen: Story Mode And Moviemaking
-Chapter Twenty: Sim Autonomy
-Chapter Twenty-One: The Sims 2 Body Shop
-Chapter Twenty-Two: Custom Content
-Chapter Twenty-Three: Appendix A: Cheats


So, yes... if you play The Sims 2 at all, get this book. Even if you're just a casual player. I assure you, your Sim gaming experience will be much better. The only regret I have is not having this book around when I first started playing TS2.

For those expecting this to go over all the expansion packs..bother to actually look at the guide before you buy it. You can tell from just the front of the book that it only covers the base game. And being that it was released when the base game came out, there's no way it could've covered the other games.

Liked it, a lot. It told me tons of stuff about the game which I never knew, and best of all, it came in pristine condition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sims 2 rocks! March 23 2009
By Tina Dee Chandler - Published on Amazon.com
Although I thought I was getting the Deluxe Guide with Sims 2 and Night Life in it I'm still happy with the guide. There is a mistake in the Business career that has followed from guide to guide. It's the number of friends. It isn't correct. It goes from 1 to 0 to 1 again.
