Awesome gameplay for the first month or so

Summary: Awesome gameplay for the first month or so, then I started experiencing major glitching and the game would sort of freeze every 5 seconds which the music is still playing. I feel like I wasted my money because many people are having this glitch and yet EA hasn't done anything to fix it, and I still cannot stand the constant freezing enough to bother playing again.
Summary: So, I was expecting more content I guess and once again disappointed. I'm a die hard sims fan and buy everything EA offers up which sometimes isn't so wise. The game became so laggy that it was unbearable and me and my sims game are now in a little spat because I refuse to play. Overall it wasn't terrible but I was a little disappointed I just expect a little bit more. My mistake I guess!
Summary: It got boring after about a week. I would not say this is there best EA's best sims expansion pack but it's ok. If your looking for a good expantion pack I would get Pets (I have that one) or Late Night (I don't have it but I has heard it's an amazing expantion pack!) Hope his helped!
Summary: this program locks up a lot. it freezes as well and pauses every few minutes - very frustrating. Don't have issues with any others like we do with this one. Would be great if it weren't for that - as the areas and such are very cool.
Summary: Purchased this because I was interested in the resort feature. Running resorts is fun, but it causes a ton of lag. Any game associated with a resort (own, stay) will lag terribly, and I have not found a way to fix it. Makes the game much harder to enjoy. Boat travel can be buggy and slow, especially if there are too many people crowded in front of the area. Papparazzi became a problem because they would camp outside my houseboat.
Summary: That I could go through all of those ratings and not find any that mentioned that the game lags like crazy in the new world. It's due to EAxis being lazy with the routing and boats and people freezing everywhere. Two options, Resetsim* Which will reset all the sims in that world, inconvinient and the game will still lag, just less. Or you can go to modthesims and download the 'fixed' version of the world.
