5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best :] July 26, 2011
By MDR1994
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
Before I bought this game I was stuck between this one (Ambitions) and World Adventures.
I went through many reviews, and eventually decided on this game.
It was a great decision.
The Sims 3 : Ambitions is a totally amazing game and you will be far from disappointed!
You can have awesome "professions" like Stylist, Architect, Ghost Hunter, Fireman, or Detective.
And not only that, but there is an added Education career and a deepened Medical career.
Twinbrook town (the Ambitions town) is loaded with things to do.

PLUS! You can now do your own Laundry! Not sure how that fits in with Ambitions, but it gives your sims a nice Moodlet if you wear clean clothes.

So if your stuck on which Sims to get, like me, then go with this one! :] I highly reccomend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars TS3: Ambitions January 26, 2011
By cbl1
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
The Sims Ambitions is pretty cool, for the fact that it offers a lot more activities and jobs/careers and stuff than the base game. It encourages entrepreneurship, and is somewhat more life-like with the option of doing your own laundry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Expansion March 14, 2014
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I have only had this game a few days but so far it's been really fun to play. I just wanted to post a review to say that the download process was extremely simple. If you are using origin to play all you have to do is click origin and then select redeem product code. You can find your code in your games & software library here on amazon. Then just type in the code. I installed through origin it didn't take too long. I read a review about infinite load times? I've had no issues like that at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best expansion so far! May 6, 2014
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
This one really changes the game for me. I now have more options for gameplay in build mode, buy mode, and CAS not to mention the new buildings to visit like the Tattoo shop or the Firehouse. New actions and traits as well! When flirting you can say "I'm a firefighter" and you get several new tattoos to reflect that if your sim fancies ink. (Nearly all of mine are tatted.)

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a fan September 20, 2011
By Jane
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
This expansion just didn't do it for me. The new town buildings were nice- and I enjoy going to work with my sims, but I think that open for business was a lot more pleasurable! Having careers for the artistic endeavors made it worth the three stars, but it just wasn't as exciting- the ghostbusting career was especially disappointing for me. I didn't list but a few sim days with that one it was just so boring setting up a queue of ghosts while managing my others sims. Cooking and going to the restroom seemed more interesting to me.

I really wished I liked it more, though, as open for business was my favorite expansion for the sims2

3.0 out of 5 stars Love the game, hate Amazon's downloading process June 22, 2014
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I love all the Sims 3 expansions and with the increased control over careers (which I found particularly boring in just the base game alone) this one is a definite plus. All of my problems came in trying to actually download the game. I've never purchased a downloaded copy from Amazon before and they couldn't make the process more confusing if they tried. When you first purchase the game you're instructed to "Download now" which naturally you're inclined to do. Nowhere does it tell you NOT to do this.

I spent 12 hours trying to get this game to download to my computer and nothing happened. Every two minutes I'd just get this error message telling me my connection to Amazon's downloader had been lost and I needed to try again. After 12 hours of that I called Amazon's customer service department and after being transferred and put on hold a couple times I finally got someone who could tell me the problem.

The trouble is you can't use Amazon's download at all. That's why it wasn't working. You have to ignore their "Download now" button and instead go to "Your Games and Software Library" where you'll find the Activation Key for the game that you then need to take to the Origin client, redeem through them, it will appear in your game library, and then you download it from there.

The problem is nothing on the Amazon product page or purchase page after you've spent your money informs you of that. You have to go through the headache of calling customer service to find this out, and what's more the agent I spoke to kept reiterating to me to make sure I go to the Origin client (that's downloaded directly on your computer) not the Origin website because many customers try to do that and spend hours getting further frustrated because it doesn't work.
