Summary: I bought this as a gift for a friend, but I ended up having to replace it after finding out that the discs were defective. I returned it for a replacement thinking that the new one should be fine, but the replacement was still defective. I just ended up taking the gift back and returning it.
Summary: The game itself is fun, but the online game code was a royal pain; I thought this was an online download similar to other online apps I've bought on Amazon, where you buy and app and get a link to download. This is not that, instead you get a series of codes and have to register and download an installer from another site.
Summary: I downloaded Sims3 when it first came but lost my computer and oddly couldn't find it again in my EA account. I waited 3 years to finally break down and buy a second copy. The downloadable version through Origin sucks!!! Why? Because I can't even download it to my computer. My computer has been sitting at 2.7MB of a 91MB download for hours. And this is only to download the Origin downloading software. I haven't even gotten to the game yet.
I love the SIMS but this download didn't work good

Summary: This game never worked correctly and would crash often. I found myself uninstalling and reinstalling several times to play it. I love the SIMS but this download didn't work good. The laptop I first downloaded it on actually crashed and hasn't worked since. Not sure if the game caused it or it was a coincidence. I installed it on my new laptop and immediately noticed it was acting funny and freezing more so I uninstalled it and haven't messed with it since.
