Summary: My favorite expansion so far. The only thing I don't like is how long it takes to boat somewhere and sometimes the graphics get a bit jumpy when boating. The mermaids are neat. It's also really challenging to scuba dive though, because by the time you boat to the area your sim is already tired out...
When I CAN play it thought it's fun and I like all the additions

Summary: My only complaint is that even with no other expansion pack installed it lags, just takes up too much room. With out this expansion pack installed I can have 4 or 5 other expansions on and no problems, but when I add this one it just doesn't work well for me.
Summary: This expansion pack comes with a lot of stuff. You get 2 new traits and 1 new profession. You can also run your own resort. Set prices, hire people, expand your resort, and more. The new city to play in is okay.
Summary: My daughter is a Sims fan.I do find that there are glitches with all the EA products we have bought ( crash, freeze etc) but she does enjoy this booster pack to Sims 3.There is a help line for The Sims which she has used for this with varying results.
Summary: It's fun, adds more elements to the game, but because there are so many issues with sims getting stuck all around town from poor editing on the developers behalf, the game quickly becomes glitchy with lots of lagging. I do like the added resorts and the way a sim can own them.
Summary: The game is beautiful. As someone living in a Caribbean country I thought the neighborhood looked very much like what cities in The Caribbean looked like. The features are amazing, the hair and content is amazing as well.
Summary: I'd like it more if my computer didn't minimize every 10 minutes with it on. "not enough memory" even though I barely use the memory on my computer. (external drives, duh). Other than that... This is a great expansion pack.
Summary: Island Paradise is a great expansion over all, but there is one big bug in the expansion that may or may not be patched now that the Sims 4 is in the making. With the expansion, you get every thing that has to go with a tropical theme.
