This works fine takes about 15 min prep. 1st you have to get an EA/Origin account (easy). Then you have to install the Origin installer as well as the amazon game installer. Then you simply add the Key amazon gives you and the game appears in your Origin library. Then install. The installation takes several hours. The set up is a little work but if you understand it will take a little to futz with all the installations it is all good!

1.0 out of 5 stars Origin Download March 14, 2013
Verified Purchase
I love the sims, but the origin downloader that you have to use is insane. I just got this computer from Lenovo, two graphics cards, 16G, 1TB of memory, and I am looking at 7+ hours of download time. My internet connect is 30/10 its just insane! Amazon needs its own download of these files.

1.0 out of 5 stars hassle to downloand and launch game March 11, 2013
By vanessa
Verified Purchase
Im not rating the game but the inconvenience of buying the game to download. I bought the game at 3pm and it is now 11 pm and i cant even get this game to launch. You buy the game from Amazon and yet you have to have a origin account to download game and then wait about 4 hours and to find out that the game wont launch and i wait another one hour to chat with customer support and then they tell me i have to call tomorrow.

4.0 out of 5 stars Downloaded fine February 16, 2013

The download works fine, it runs through origin- which is operated by EA games, Amazon gives you the input code, like the ones from earlier sims programs, and you download through origin.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work without disc March 7, 2013
By roseape
Verified Purchase
I downloaded the game and already have an Origin account. It downloaded quickly and easily, and when I selected the download from my Origin game library and clicked "Play", it stated that I could not play without a disc inserted. The whole reason I purchased the game for PC download is so I DON'T have to have a disc to play. Total waste of time and money.

Just thought I'd clear that up from the last poster. Bought the key and used Origin to DL with no problems. Cheapest I've seen this game anywhere.

As of 3/22/13, this program is on sale at the Origin website for half price. Amazon just forwards you to this site anyway to download them game, so why pay double here.
