Summary: I love playing The Sims 3, but it takes forever just to download and install the base game. Then it's not even compatible with the expansion pack and I have to wait another five hours just for it to update. Then the update pauses and won't start up again. Then when I tried reloading the launcher it continued to crash on me. So now I have to go through and uninstall it, then reinstall it again. That's a waste of time!!!
Summary: Game took a long time to download...once I got it downloaded it was just like it was supposed to be for less than a week and then it kept shutting down and making my computer shut down. I would love a refund but there is no way to contact the seller...very disappointed. I want to delete the game but I want my money back for even wasting my time on the game.
Summary: Because this game is a digital version of Sims 3, you MUST be connected to the internet to connect to their Origin service (similar to Steam) so they can verify your license. This is a technique some companies use to ensure that their games aren't being copied illegally. However, once you connect to Origin and run the game, you can freely disconnect from the internet and keep playing. Just don't quit the game!
