Great Objects/Bad lag
7 May 2014
Summary: Though the objects and clothing that came with the expansion is amazing and the other life states and skills are awesome and well thought out the World isn't cut out to the rest of the expansion. Sure its worth to have for your collection but if you don't want to put up with lag while trying to play in that beautiful world than Island Paradise isn't for you.
Summary: I was excited to play this because you scuba dive and can ride a jest ski. It was fun for about 5 minutes then started to pause every other minute then finally froze. This expansion has tons of glitches and bugs. Had to download mods to reset it.
Summary: I'm conflicted on how to review this. When Island Paradise came out I downloaded a bootlegged version. This version was missing features but despite that I LOVED this expansion. It had some much additional game play and was really beautiful. It is finally an expansion that added black textured hair to the game. Running a resort is a great mini game and exploring underwater was really addicting. So I happily bought this expansion when winter sales hit.
Summary: The content of the game is great. Lots of new things and scuba diving and underwater exploration. But I don't play the town because it keeps freezing. And it freezes a lot, plays for less then 30 seconds and then freezes for 30-40 seconds. It's not fun and is really annoying.
Summary: This game is extremely glitchy. It sucks because this is the neighborhood that I was most looking forward to playing, but every time I go to play it, it becomes extremely glitchy. You can't stay there for very long before the game starts to run incredibly slowly. I wanted to see the underwater diving spots so badly.
Summary: Don't buy this expansion pack. Don't get me wrong, its amazing! BUT its so laggy and full of bugs. I've tried everything to make this game work. I've even downloaded the mods errortrap and overwatch to get rid of the lag but it still won't work. I can play for one sim day in Isla Paradiso and then it just freezes and I have to go into task manager to close the game. I really wish they would fix this e.p because the town is beautiful... but it has so many issues.
Summary: I had high expectations of this expansion pack and granted the content is great but the game constantly freezes for long periods of time which makes it impossible and frustrating to play. Hopefully they will find a resolution to this issue soon.
