Still the best Sims game on the market (Sims 3 was great, but Sims 2 was on another level entirely), now available with all the expansion packs for free, meaning it's actually a more full featured game than the upcoming Sims 4, available right now, for free.
Do note, though, that while you can redeem the code on both Windows and Mac OS X, The Sims 2, for some reason that is entirely beyond my comprehension, will not run on Mac (even though The Sims 3 does). So if you have a Mac and want to play Sims 2, better dig out that BootCamp partition.
