Summary: I never had a chance to play game, I bought for my daughter for Christmas and when we tried to install it was as though there was nothing on disk. I tried to install on a couple other computers with same results. I didn't know how to get a refund !
Summary: I was looking forward to Bon Voyage, and HM Fashion Stuff. I have them sitting on my desk ready to install for the last 3 weeks! Thank my lucky stars I did not install either one. I was waiting for the patch. I was waiting to see what people thought of the patch. If I would of known that Maxis was putting SecuROM in the games, I would not of purchased either one of them. I will have no choice but to box both games up and send them back to Amazon for a full refund.
Summary: I'm pretty sure I might have had fun with this expansion pack if it hadn't shut off my CD drives (its not just that, my printer doesn't work either) and let me play my game. When I installed Bon Voyage I wasn't aware that a program called "SecuROM" was also installed along with it, and thanks to that, my CD/DVD burners are no longer functioning.
Summary: As much as I enjoy The Sims 2, this particular package has ruined the experience for me. Don't get me wrong, the game is great, but it is NOT worth the headaches SecuRom has caused. SecuRom is an anti-piracy software that comes packaged with the game and is installed on your system WITHOUT your knowledge. If I had but known the problems it would cause, I would not have installed it.
Summary: Unbeknownst to you, this particular Sims 2 expansion pack will install SecurROM (a rootkit style copy protection created by Sony) to your pc and you won't be able to get rid of it. It's been known to screw up hardware configurations left and right. Nasty!
Installs unwanted program that can be harmful to computer

Summary: The expansion was really bad, but the worst part is some kind of program called "Securom" that installs itself on your computer. The problem is that sometimes when I try to start the game, this unwanted program locks the whole computer and I can't do a single thing, I have to turn it off by the powerbutton which is NOT healthy for a computer.
