5.0 out of 5 stars A whole new world for your Sims to explore! June 25, 2013
Platform for Display:PC/Mac
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The Sims 3 Island Paradise is an incredible expansion pack, filled with a so many new things for your Sims to do and explore. The new town, Isla Paradiso is actually a group of islands in the ocean, each one with different buildings and homes on it. Instead of traveling everywhere by car, now you hop on a speed boat to get from island to island. The whole ocean is there for you to explore, and there's stuff everywhere!

Homes can now be built right on the water. Instead of driveways and garages, you now have docks and slots to park your boats (speed boats, row boats, sail boats, and more). Homes sit right on the beautiful blue ocean water, with fish and huge sharks swimming right around them. Your sim can fish and skip stones right off the dock, or jump in and do a bit of swimming or snorkeling for seashells and gems.

When your ready to venture out even farther, head out to one of the marked scuba diving locations for an adventure under the waters surface. Your sim needs to have spent some time working on their snorkeling skills first, before they will be allowed to take an underwater trip. When they're ready, they will switch into their scuba gear and dive down quite a ways, checking out all the fish and plant life that dwells on the ocean floor. Each dive location is completely different from the others, some having more things to explore than other. While under water you can catch fish, open treasure chests, explore caves (in the same way your sim can explore the catacombs in the graveyards) and even meet and socialize with other sims underwater. You never know who you will run into while swimming or scuba diving. Regular people, ghosts and even mermaids all are around and exploring the dive locations.

This game is amazing. You can cruise over the ocean, discover hidden islands, live on a houseboat, run a resort, become a mermaid, and so much more.

There are 2 wonderful new traits:

Your Sim has better luck fishing from a boat!
Your Sim's stomach doesn't have much of a problem with the rocking of a boat!" -
Loves to Swim -
"Your Sim loves to swim. Being in the water gives them a mood boost!
Your Sim builds Scuba Diving Skill at a faster rate!
Your Sim can swim for a longer period of time before getting tired!" -

Houseboats in sizes of 10x8, 15x10, 20x15, 14x6, curved bow 14x6, and curved bow 12x8

Scuba diving and the underwater

3 new WooHoo locations (underwater caves, all-in-one bathroom, and resort tower)

Mermaids who can stay underwater without running out of air and must keep wet to live

Lifeguard profession

Resorts to run and visit

Several related lifetime rewards and wishes

TONS and I mean TONS of new objects and Create-A-Sim options

As with most expansions, there are several minor glitches and bugs but they will soon probably be fixed. I would say what bugs there are but different people get different bugs.

This games is absolutely amazing in all possible ways. Now, STOP READING MY REVIEW AND BUY IT!!!!!!!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty awesome, glitches and all. June 25, 2013
By Rose
Platform for Display:PC/Mac
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Pre-ordered the game because I wanted the survival pack! I was pretty excited about downloading it. Some of the Sims Game allow you to directly download from Amazon, while others refer to you download from Origin (like with Island Paradise). I am hoping they will soon be consistent about the downloading process.

The download was quick and easy, and within twenty minutes I was loading it. First thing I wanted to do was to try the snorkeling. That's where I noticed my first glitch. My sim kept switching in and out of her snorkeling gear. Then I decided to have her go scuba diving, and while talking to a mermaid, the game glitched again and everyone who was swimming near me, including the mermaid, was transferred to shore. Pretty weird, don't know why that happened.

Other than the minor swimming glitches which I'm sure will be fixed at a later date, the game is awesome! I am loving all the new hair styles and clothes for my female sims. I tend to only make girls, not really sure why. Probably cause they're more attractive to look at, heyyyyy. I also like that you can run your own resort. Reminds me of when you got to make your own restaurant in Sims 2! That was so much fun, I hope they bring that back.

There are also new foods and new entertainment for your sims. All the new content truly makes this game worth while.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love Being a Hotel Owner!! June 29, 2013
By Illyria
Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I absolutely love this expansion pack. I have missed owning a business like in the Sims 2 "Open for Business" expansion pack so this is a good substitute. I stayed up all night when I received it. My Sim took over the beach hotel in foreclosure renamed it and turned it into a "5 Star Resort". After reaching the 5 star level I received a deed to one of the undiscovered islands to do with as I please. I can build a house and live on it or open another resort. Running the resort is fun and hard work. I have not figured out how to get rid of the roaches even though I have hired the maximum number of high quality maintenance crew members working around the clock.

I used the blue print option to make updates to the property and added a lounge, dining area, pool with pool bar of course, a gym and an activity area consisting of Food stand and fire walk pits. I also added gambling at my hotel with the poker and roulette wheel. My Sim works sometimes as a bar tender or manning the front desk. It helps if your manager Sim is handy then you can make repairs easily. Of course Witch Sims can magically upgrade and repair items much faster. You can tell how well you are doing (or how bad) from the reviews from other Sims staying at your hotel. They critique everything food, landscaping, cleanliness, staff etc.

You decide the quality of food, whether or not to chlorinate the pool water, what shifts staff they will work.

As you can tell I have been busy running my hotel and have not played around with a lot of the other features. The island is beautiful and I love that you can scuba dive, windsurf, sail. There are a lot of new items: hair styles, clothes furniture. And of course mermaids and mermen have checked into my hotel. I could not wait for this EP to come out and I have not been disappointed.
