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.

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.
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.
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...
Summary: I got this game for Christmas and it was NOT the first Sims 3 game I have owned BUT it is the first Sims 3 game that I have had to download and I got to tell you it was a pain. In comparison to the disc it took forever to download (which uses my internet GB up).
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...
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...
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.
