As is usual with the latest Sims Expansion Packs, this one requires a hearty 1.3GB of free disk space, but it makes sense with all the cool stuff they've packed into it.

Overall, "Makin' Magic" is the perfect way to end a series of games that have changed the face of interactive entertainment. One can only hope that "Sims 2" can live up to our expectations, which are already fairly high.

Sadly, the same problems that plagued previous Sim games still exist in this one. Its performance is abysmal, even on our Dual 1.25GHz G4 with 512MB of RAM. Random bugs also popped up here and there—for example, our gardener got caught in an endless loop watering our vegetables, and the only way to save her was to delete part of the garden. But we're willing to overlook the problems, given how freakily fun this game is.

Beim siebten Addon stellt sich natürlich die Frage, lohnt es sich erneut um die 30 Euro auszugeben. Für einen richtigen Sims Fan sicherlich, jeder andere sollte sich die Frage stellen, möchte ich wirklich zaubern oder reicht mir das Hauptspiel mit einem vielleicht vorhandenen Addon. Wer allerdings noch kein Addon zu Die Sims hat, dem kann ich Hokus Pokus ans Herz legen, da es das Hauptspiel doch recht stark verändert. Bevor man zuschlägt, sollte man allerdings einen recht aktuellen Macintosh besitzen, denn die Performance ist weiterhin grausig.

For hard-core Sims fanatics (and they are legion), here's another dimension to your favorite game. It also plays nice with other expansions like Unleashed, allowing you to do magic on your pets. For the rest of us, though, the good news is that this is the last Sims expansion: Maxis has begun work on The Sims 2.
