Summary: It is unfair that I had to buy this twice. It wouldn't load with the new loader thingy that SIMS is using now. I had gone a long time without playing and didn't realize the changes that had happened. I like this game well enough that I bought it again so I could play it but then regretted having to buy something twice. (For some reason my base game loads just fine now that I have the new version of Ambitions.. weird.
Summary: This is the second expansion from the Sims 3 and comes with a few items to spruce up your home, which take up a whole wing of my house. It isn't much, but by registering your game with your web browser, there's 2 new inventions plus a few hairstyles and extras. Just go to Home > Sets > Holidays & Gifts > Registration Rewards in the Sims 3 store. The best jobs: Sculptor and Inventor are fantastic.
Summary: This expansion just didn't do it for me. The new town buildings were nice- and I enjoy going to work with my sims, but I think that open for business was a lot more pleasurable! Having careers for the artistic endeavors made it worth the three stars, but it just wasn't as exciting- the ghostbusting career was especially disappointing for me. I didn't list but a few sim days with that one it was just so boring setting up a queue of ghosts while managing my others sims.
Okay product. Game play may not be worth the retail price.

Summary: I bought the game to add more playing options to Sims 3. I haven't used all the options yet but it is nice to have them. At this point I am not sure that the retail price of the game and expansion pack is worth what you get.
Summary: A decent addition to The Sims 3 base game, the new professions are interesting to play but get somewhat boring once you've mastered them. My favorite is the Architectural Designer profession, because you basically get free reign on your renovations, and it seems to me to be the most open-ended in the game.
Summary: I love all the Sims 3 expansions and with the increased control over careers (which I found particularly boring in just the base game alone) this one is a definite plus. All of my problems came in trying to actually download the game. I've never purchased a downloaded copy from Amazon before and they couldn't make the process more confusing if they tried. When you first purchase the game you're instructed to "Download now" which naturally you're inclined to do.
Summary: The game was fun, a little disappointing, I was led to believe that you actually got to see what they where doing on their jobs but you have to pick only certain careers for that to take effect.
Summary: When your sim goes to work in one of the new careers, you go with them, it makes it hard to play more than one-sim families. Which makes a tedious town after a while. Self employed careers also demand your attention, you cant leave them to get on with it and play another family. I got bored and de-installed it.
Summary: I got this Game obviously from Amazon, i read thruogh the reviews and it was a 50/50 mixed opinion. I had the impression that once you loaded this game up you could take your Sims to work with the job they had BEFORE the expantion pack and physically control them at work(if that makes sense), well no you cant, there seems to be only a few more careers and although there ARE new things to do it kinda gives off the wrong impression.
