2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the $30 dollars. September 5, 2011
I bought it off of the EA site but I think I should of waited. This didn't add much to the game, that is unless they added it towards the end of the game. I see some new outfits and some new quests. Other then that, it's the same ol, same ol. More quests requiring you to sail places, but no pirates and the same nobles. You can make your own pirate but that's about it. I was thinking it was on the same line as a full expansion think World Adventures, but it's one of those 'Barnacle Bay" type of expansions. I'd wait for it to go on sale.

ETA: You get parrots to play around with, and you can dig up treasure. Still nothing special. Wanted to also say that trailer for this game is a bunch of bull. They made it seem like you can choose sides. There are no sides. You just dress your main up as a pirate but he's still a noble in pirate's clothing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Adventure Pack October 2, 2011
Verified Purchase
The pack adds noble and pirate themed objects and costumes along with a multiple quest plot line centering around how you choose to deal with trouble between two nations. There's a meter that follows your progress and you're forced to side with one or the other. To access this quest line you need to start a new kingdom. Surprised?

1.0 out of 5 stars Does Not Work! April 10, 2013
By Sayblee
Verified Purchase
The update patch 2.0.113 makes it so that it is not compatible for windows 8. EA games should not sell items that will not work for people's computers systems. I unfortunately could not get my money back because all games on amazon are nonrefundable but I warn everyone who has windows 8 to not purchase this game. You will be highly disappointed as I am right now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun additions September 19, 2011
When I first got the game, I was expecting much more such as a new location. But there were limited additions in the game. However that doesn't stop me from playing the game endlessly. I never get enough of attacking random Sims with my parrot! The quests are longer, the responsibilities are a bit more challenging, and there are some amusing new traits. Overall, this expansion was worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great addition! October 8, 2011
Verified Purchase
Love the game. Adding pirates was a great idea. It just doesn't say medieval without a few pirates swaggering around the tavern! Lots of fun and insane replay value. I haven't even gotten to the next level and I am so happy to know there's so much more to explore. I love the depth of the game and it is always fun to mix and match traits to see what i come up with. Great game :)

1.0 out of 5 stars Such a letdown. September 23, 2011
By Amber T
This "expansion" is so truly disappointing. The Sims "Stuff" packs left less content to be desired than P&N.
The additions to character creations are minimal. A few hairstyles, some new clothes, mostly.
You can only do so many quests - no matter the new storyline - before it just becomes like slamming your head into a desk over and over and over again. You keep playing, hoping things are going to improve - maybe you'll unlock some awesome new game/lifestyle feature, but you don't. It's like World of Warcraft in the fact that, no matter the quest title, it's still a quest, and there's still only so many interactions and so much you can do. It's just grind grind grind - but there is no end reward.
Save your money and just play The Sims 3. Download some medieval style mods and pretend your Sims are Pirates and Nobles. You'll have way more fun in the long run.

Really, EA, you've let me down. The Sims has been a fun franchise because of the array of choices, social interactions, and most importantly, the lifestyle progression. This isn't even in the spectrum of what the players have come to expect over the years, and frankly, it doesn't allow me to hold out a lot of hope for any future Sims games. To me, this screams "Lazy Developers", as well as "Don't waste your money!".

The ONLY reason I'm giving this 1 star is because EA has a bugged update that doesn't allow the game, base game/or this one, to work on windows 8 (it shows up as running in the background only). You can play The Sims Medieval base game as long as you don't update it after you install it but that also means you can't install / play this expansion because to install you need to update the basegame..catch22. EA has known about this since the update but has done NOTHING to fix it..I wasted my money on this expansion and I am very unhappy about it!

You do not get to build your own kingdom, you get to choose from pre made ones and then decorate the insides a little bit. This is not your typical Sims game and should not have been labeled such. It should be been called a sid myers game that plays out much like civ. You barely even customize your character or family... it was really a big big let down.
