I've owned the original Sims and Sim 2 with all the expansion packs, but this game is a complete revamp of the series by creating a community experience verse a solitary experience.

I also want to mention that you do not have to use the Amazon downloader, you can enter your keys at EA, and use their download manger to download the games. It took about 12 hours to download both copies of the game.

---UPDATE PROBLEMS!!!!---
To update the game, do not use the EA download manager (EADM) that installs with the game because it will make it so your game is unable to update the expansion pack, which I happen to learn the hard way :(

Follow the steps below to properly update the game:
1. Install Sims 3 (do not update)
2. Download the new EADM at the EA website.
3. Open Sims 3, and update
4. Install Ambitions and update

If you failed to do this, then just uninstall everything (select cancel to de-authorizing this computer) and reinstall in the order I listed above.

---MODS---
The base EA game is pretty lame. EA has this mode called story progression were they programmed the game to just randomly delete Sim families and add new ones. This means that one of your Sim families could disappear. Luckily modders have fixed this problem.

There are two major mods which are must for this game:
1. Awesome Mod, which add new interactions and fix a bunch of bugs that EA left behind.
2. Nraads' Story Progression Mod, which is a complete revamp of EA's crappy story progression. This mod will not randomly delete Sim families, but instead have Sims interact with the neighborhood based on their personality. This makes the neighborhood feel more life like, as NPC Sims will actually do stuff while your playing your Sim.

I purchased the game, and played for hours, just like the old sim games. I like the improvements, some do not make sense though. I make more with a job, than a career?! But hey, its more than I made in older versions. And there are certainly better options to earn that bankroll. If EA would release a demo, this game would take off in sales. Now Im looking for other add ons that may be useful to me.

Works on my Win 7 Home premium 64 bit, no download or install errors.

The download took several hours, the game worked for about a week then got inialization errors, after looking online at several blogs, this is an ongoing issue with everyone who buys this game through a download.

It's sad that EA and Origin still have issues.
I bought this game several months ago but still couldn't play it.
Just because Origin does not accept it and the "thesims.com" redirection always point me to a broken homepage.

Too sad.

I was totally addicted to the original Sims as a kid. Wasted hours of my life in the Sims 2. Now, I have lost entire afternoons in the Sims 3. I love all the extras they've added to this new version of th Sims. Being able to download this was really convienient - no discs to lose or scrath. My download didn't take too long, maybe 2 hours total to download the base game and "Ambitions". The professions in Ambitions are fun and add a lot of new game-play to the base. I haven't experienced any game errors or problems from the download and have played the game for quite some time.

4-stars instead of 5 because EA seems to have gotten a bit... greedy. The game itself is already expensive, the expansion packs cost almost as much as the base game. And, you don't get many options in the base game. Fortunately there are a lot of sites with free download to add clothing and objects.

Overall, a total time-suck - but a fun one. I wish EA would make the expansions and downloads more reasonably priced, but, the base game with Ambitions should keep me entertained for a while.

The other reviews are pretty accurate as toward my own experience. Two hours to download both games. Install for Sims 3 went smoothly, however would not patch with the Origin installer. Did some searching online and decided to disable my Antivirus protection, exited Origin and use EA's manual patch. That worked, the game runs smoothly. Install of the second game "Sims 3 Ambitions" ran just fine & then patched smoothly with Origin. The game loads and works just fine now. I think a lot of the reviews on here are written by people that haven't done their research & looked into what the other problems might be (Origin, antivirus software that doesn't let the patch install after downloading, etc). It DOES work, and you CAN do it. Now, time to go play! :-)

I almost decided to get the regular Sims 3, no expansions, because it was about fifteen dollars cheaper. I ended up figuring, why not get the deluxe, I'm getting a discount on an expansion pack so what the heck. TOTALLY WORTH IT. One, before this, I played Sims 3 console on my xbox. I thought it was amazing then, but it's so much better now! No ridiculous loading screens. Free roam of the town! It's awesome. It's got so many more perks on the PC, since it's made to be played on the PC. Don't even get me started on the expansion pack, ambitions. The extra careers and objects (furniture, clothes, hairdos) are so worth the extra money! Can't stop playing it, but I do have other things to do. Always makes me sad to leave my smith family behind. I've only tried one new career so far - stylist. Can't wait to try the others !
