5.0 out of 5 stars Addicting September 7, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Sims 3 Starter Pack|Verified Purchase
So lot's of people are complaining about how this is impossible but besides the fact it took me 6 hours to download completely (just Sims 3) it was completely worth the wait. I had no trouble completing this and am downloading the others now. which luckily are going much faster. When the first finished downloading I was sooo excited but it was 2 in the morning so I said I would only try it for 30 minutes, when I checked the clock after what seemed like a half hour I came to realize it was 5 in the morning! It was so fun and addicting I would never tell someone not to waste their money, for I have nothing to complain about this game... As there are more benefits to having an account for Sims it's not necessary and I play it just fine without an account.
For those finding it hard to download, this is what I did that worked fine.
1) Download Origin (no brainer)
2) Make an account for Origin (Which is yet again a no brainer)
3) After making the purchase go to your account information and under the tab "digital connect" press the link for 'Your Games and Software Library'
4) Find and write/copy down the different claiming codes you find next to each name
5) Click onto your Origin account and click the tab at the left corner next to their symbol labled "Origin"
6) Chose the first tab 'Redeem Product Code'
7) Something will pop up and you simply copy and paste or type in the code you received from your games and software library.

after that the games you purchased will be added to your new origin account and you simply click the game you wish to download first, then sit back and watch the bar rise. In my case I watched 4 movies as I checked in on the progress periodically. I wish you luck, and trust me... you will never forget taking this steel and enjoying the game. Or at least I wont :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Hours of Entertainment July 4, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Sims 3 Starter Pack|Verified Purchase
I've been playing this game for a couple hours now and I see so much I want to do. It seems as though there is countless hours of entertainment with just the base game. Installation was a breeze: got my codes from my amazon digital library, opened up my origin launcher and redeemed 3 codes, the 4th "Date Night" required a sims community account. Besides having to create a Sims community account (which is basically your origin account), installation was a breeze. I don't know what happened to the rest of the reviewers but don't be swayed into not buying this great game. If you end up really enjoying the game, you may end up spending a lot more money buying overpriced expansion packs (which are currently on sale for 50% here on Amazon).

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent game but never worked properly. July 16, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Sims 3 Starter Pack|Verified Purchase
I was so exited about this game, I've been a Sims fan for quite a time now, the download and installation was perfect, but it would crash everytime I try to play. So dissapointing. I asked for a refund and Amazon answer very quickly and did refund me the money. Amazon Custom Service is the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Download speed was great for me. July 4, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Sims 3 Starter Pack|Verified Purchase
I see that a few people have given this super low ratings based on their download speed which has nothing to do with the product at hand. Great sale price, good game, and i personally averaged 3mb/s and finished my download in 38 minutes. I wouldn't dock this purchase based on my own connection speed which is what people seem to be doing. Even if it did download slow, you're still getting this game 50% off.

For you people who keep saying there is something wrong with the codes being sold..you're wrong. You must have Origin installed which is a no brainer, then make a sims 3 account on their website. After that you must REGISTER your games on the sims 3 site and they will be added to your origin account and you can download from there.

Before you people review you really should make sure you're doing everything correct. No problems at all on my end with installing etc.

1.0 out of 5 stars Download Version Non-Refundable August 29, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Sims 3 Starter Pack|Verified Purchase
I purchased this after my disc stopped working. It downloaded fine, but installation through Origin doesn't work. Help is just a list of trouble-shooting bullet points. I went through EA.com to try to register the product codes there and realized that they are all bogus (4 characters too long for what is required). Origin also requires only 16 characters and the ones I received are 20. When I asked for a refund, I got an email back saying "sorry but it's against the terms you agreed to." No one reads those things, so my loss, but I thought I would warn others about the fake product codes.
