Summary: I bought this new town because I thought, as others did, that there was more to it than just a new town. There are some new clothes, homes and such, but nothing else. No mystery, no fun stuff to do, nada. I found the pirates getaway, which looked a little like a tomb set up (from World Adventures), but it was a big let down. There were some urns sitting around and a chest that held some toys, but nothing more.
Summary: As stated above, the sims 3 Barnacle Bay does not come with a CD. After reading the description and all of the wonderful features that come with the game, I was very excited to order the game.Well, immediately I knew that there was a problem. There was a download code instead of the CD. Furthermore, there wasn't anything exciting besides the clothes and items to look at. I was like "I paid 20 dollars for this"n I could have built this myself.
Summary: Barnacle Bay is pretty much a Sims 3 neighborhood, with some extra content. If you're looking for free neighborhoods and Sims, go to EA's very own Sims 3 Exchange. Dig around in the forums under World Builder, and you'll find *plenty* of well-designed fanmade neighborhoods to keep you occupied. EA's Sims Exchange has a browsable section of premade Sims. As for additional content, like homes and outfits, I highly recommend TheSimsResource and ModTheSims2.
Summary: Overall it's just another new world nothing special about this one. I like having big lots like the 60x60 and 64x64 sizes to place my created families in this new town but this world doesn't have a lot of those. It's mostly small lots. The new families and houses are kinda dull. EA didn't put much story background or thought into this town. The beach coast is nice with the exclusive ship diner not available in sunset valley, riverview, twinbrook or bridgeport.
Summary: mine did not say anything about not coming with a disk.. i diwnloading it on my game and installed it.. it didn't add it to my game and now i cant even open my game anymore.. this was not worth 20 dollars.. wished i knew what it was before i bought it.. before i buy another sims game i will make sure it isnt just a download.. dont waste your money on this download its not worth it..
Summary: EA really needs to work out their bugs before releasing things. This neighborhood is NOT playable if you ever want to take your sims on vacation. They do not arrive at the destination...just disappear into thin air and then you can't get them back. Rip off!!!!
Summary: Just like the other reviews said, this game came with no disc. When I found out that this was no mistake, I was upset. My wife and I love sims 3 and now we can't play this game even though our computers are in the same room. No, now only one of us can play with this expansion, and the other is SOL. I called customer support, and said I wanted a cd rom copy, they said ok. I sent it in, and 2.5 weeks and 4 dollars later I get another DIGITAL copy!
