Summary: I love to travel so I wanted to get this, thinking it would be tons of fun. I never used it after the first couple hours. I don't even use the clothes that came with this expansion pack. I wish I had saved my money for a different expansion pack, like Seasons.
Summary: I bought it despite reading all the bad reviews. I like all the extra traits, clothes, and wishes but traveling is a pain. Just lost my family to some weird glitch. There's a red box on the friend panel with no name that I can not remove. I suspect it's the Sim I sent to France because he does not show up on his parent's friend panel. It takes forever to load into these new zones.
Summary: The Sims 3 WA is actually a very good game, probably the best of the 3 expansion packs even with the most added content. The problem is though that its like an old Irish backroad. Its full of potholes and requires crappy workarounds. The glitches are a sight to behold. I have already had 1 family memeber just dissappear coming back from holiday.
Summary: This expansions starts off well enough but in order to progress at all you need to have a series of holidays. Trouble starts because the load times are a bit long. Trouble doubles because the occasional corruption creeps in. The game eventually becomes unplayable with crashes and hanging and lost progress. I gave up about 12 hours in. Very dissatisfied with the whole thing.
Summary: The holiday expansion is great fun, with varied Adventures to suit all of the different Sims personality types: the green-thumbed can learn nectar making; adventurous ones can explore Egyptian tombs; arty-types can learn photography; as well as shops full of interesting recipes and rivers with new fish. It also opens up the possibility for a huge future market in add-on adventures.
