Summary: I had originally bought this item and forgot to include the original sims Medieval but when I got the original and tried to load both I noticed that the game runs in the background. After discussing with EA about a patch a work around or update they let me know that they have dropped this game from support so no new patches to get it working. If you use windows 7 or below you will be okay but for windows 8 or above beware.
Summary: I have been wanting to play this game for a couple months before i bought it, and well, It's good, but not really much of a expansion. Everything just seems the same. The changes and additions made, are too apparent. Could have added so much more. There was so much potential... perhaps in the future?
Summary: I have yet to actually get this game to work. It installs just fine but when I go play it, it never loads. There's nothing. It pops up, I push the play button, and then nothing. The original Sims Medieval worked fine before I installed this expansion pack. Anybody have any suggestions to get it running?
I'm a huge fan of this game. That being said . . .

Summary: When Sims Medeival and Pirates and Nobles came out I spent hours playing it. I'm not sure what happened to my discs and I wanted to load it onto my new laptop and was sorely disappointed to learn, AFTER the purchase, that neither game is compatible with Windows 8. Sims Medieval will play, but you can't update the program. Pirates and Nobles will not play at all.
Summary: I was very excited when this came out, but there aren't specific nobles and pirates to control like I thought there would be and there aren't that many items that were added to the game. If it's on sale like it was when I bought it I would recommend it for the items and extra quests, otherwise I would not buy it.
Summary: Firts of all this is my first Sims genre game that I have bought. It is nonsensical and without any real purpose, a great escape from from the shooters and violence games out there. The games is easy to learn and navigate through, but the quests can also be challenging. All in all a fun game, but do not expect to tally a body count.
