Terrible framerate

  • Summary: I have a computer with specs that are far better than this game requires, however due to poor design this expansion gets horrible frame rate.

  • Summary: Can't play it until EA patches this better. Last patch was 1.66 and still :/ Don't buy EA products they sell broken games and then you have to wait until they fix/patch it to play. STOP SELLING BROKEN GAMES EA!!

Too buggy to play even 6 months after release, requires new town.

Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this expansion pack through Origin during their after Christmas sale. I won't go into the unpleasantness that is Origin (I'll be buying all my packs through Amazon now) but the game itself is too unstable to be playable. I moved an existing family to the island and the cave diving caused my game to go into a permanent death spiral with lags and freezes that would last in excess of 30 seconds.

Causes Sims 3 to freeze every 20-30 seconds!

  • Summary: I have never had a problem with the Sims 3 until I bought this expansion. Game lags and freezes constantly , has crashed a few times. Has made Sims 3 virtually unplayable from the lag and freezing. It is very frustrating for the whole family as all 4 of us played the Sims 3 for years and now we are very hesitant to play it. Running 990FXA-UD3 , FX-6300 , 8 Gigs Crucial DDR3 1866 , Radeon HD 6770 1GB GDDR5 , Samsung 840 series SSD.

Badly optimized.

Yatagarasu, Amazon

  • Summary: Isla Paradiso is a beautiful world and has a lot of interesting features and nice ideas going for it--however, these are only appreciable when the world (as a whole) works. The poor programming for the core game resulted in a multitude of underlying problems that were only exacerbated by further poor programming for this expansion. I was able to get around it via shear computing strength before buying Island Paradise, but now?

Not Ready for Prime Time

Colt, Amazon

  • Summary: I will agree that this expansion is the most entertaining one EA has ever produced. Sadly, it is unplayable due to constant huge lag spikes that can last for a minute or longer. Also, even in the short intervals between lag spikes this game has more bugs than a tenement, too numerous to list in one review. The ONLY way to play this game and actually enjoy it is to download and install a third-party mod called Overwatch from NRass.

Doesn't work on MACs

lapril, Amazon
8 July 2013
  • Summary: ATTENTION MAC USERS This software does not work on MAC OSX like EA claims. The game will crash after a few minutes because the software (cider) is very limiting for macs. Don't waste your money, EA's customer support is horrendous and their representatives will most likely give you advice that will harm your mac.

Constant CRASHES on MAC

Amazon
4 July 2013
  • Summary: Do not waste your money if you intend to play Island Paradise on a MAC. EA has been aware of problems with many of the Sims expansion packs that they claim work on a MAC for quite some time now and they never bother to address and or fix the problems. Once this game is installed you would be lucky if you have 2 minutes to create a Sim.
