The Critic career is one of the three career tracks introduced in The Sims 4: City Living expansion pack.[1] Like the other City Living careers, Sims in the Critic career have the option of working from home.

After being promoted from level three, Sims will be able to choose one of the two career paths: Arts Critic or Food Critic.

Career LevelsEdit

Description: "Everyone has an opinion. But not everyone is paid to have it! Sims who feel they have superior judgement can enter the Critic Career. Whether it’s the foods or the arts, your Sim will have something to say about it, and others WILL listen."
