Summary: My daughter wanted this for the last few months. We ordered it and installed. We have used Sims 2 and with Sims 3 it wants you to be online. In fact there have been several times we couldn't play when our internet was down and the game said it needed to connect to internet to look for update.
Summary: I think I would like this more if I had a better/faster computer to run it on. I didn't find as easy to figure out as the previous versions but it's still fairly easy to figure out with trial and error. Graphics are very good and there's a lot more stuff than the older versions.
Summary: I used to play sims 2 alot and on my new computer I decided to put sims 3. It was so difficult to install on windows 7. I ended up just using the codes with the discs to download the game from origin online. But even still the game just wouldn't run.
Summary: Honestly, I loved this expansion pack! I loved the holidays and the seasons. It didn't lag out my computer like how I expected it to. However when the snow would get deep I would see some freezing here and there, but it was overall a great expansion pack.
Summary: It's a fun game but you need the CD to play the game. In addition, you need to be connected to the Internet to download EA Origin software to play the game for the first time. Afterwards, the Internet is not required to play the game.
