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 :)

It is super fun. The download and installation time for me only took a bit over an hour. This all depends on your internet speed.
Here are the steps in order to successfully download and install the game.

1. Click on the download link provided by Amazon. It will provide two text documents. One will be the Origin Activation Instructions and the other will be the actual game codes.

2. Create an account on thesims3.com .Download Origin and make an account.

3. Log in to thesims3.com and hover over My Page. Go down to My Account and Redeem a Code. Here you Redeem the Code labelled "DateNight DLC Code"

4. Next Log Into Origin and Follow the Steps provided on the second text document. I will provide them here as well:

Log into your Origin account on the Origin client
. In the upper right, click “Customize and Control Origin...” button (orange button)
3. Select “Redeem Product Code”
4. Enter the product code delivered in your Amazon ‘Your Games & Software Library’; click Next
5. Click “Next…” on the product confirmation screen
6. Click “View in Library” to be taken to the Origin library page
7. The game is now ready to download directly from Origin by clicking the "Ready to Download" button

Finally, download and install all the pieces and then click on the shortcuts that appear on the desktop. This will update the game to include all the new content. The DLC content form TheSims3.com must be downloaded and installed separately.

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).

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.
