5.0 out of 5 stars A cute new town February 3, 2013
By Emily
Platform for Display:PC Download
I really liked this expansion. It's very much so like a small Italian village. Nice hills, great new sims. I do love the brick oven! So cute. Some of the names are pulled from Shakespearean works (ie: Veronaville, The Monty's and the Capps are feuding) and it's kind of funny. I liked it. Nothing really negative to say about it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced, but still a beautiful town March 1, 2013
By 123abc
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I am a huge fan of the Sims franchise, however I don't go on the the Sims 3 store on a regular basis. When I saw this town on sale for $10, I thought, "Why not?". Monta Vista itself is beautiful. It's a Italian-themed town. I recently went to Italy, so I was cool to see Italy re-made in the Sims 3. Even though this is a great town, at $20, it's full price, it is overpriced. If you find it on sale, it is a good buy. Note that even when you purchase on Amazon, you still need a Sims 3 online account to download it to your game. Happy Simming!

2.0 out of 5 stars not worth twenty bucks June 9, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
let me say its not a terrible thing but it certainly isn't worth twenty bucks. Its a single new neighborhood with maybe thirty new things including hair and clothing for your people. had a few things i liked mainly though i con't think it added enough to the game to make it worth the purchase. thus far none of the sims expansion packs i have purchased have. I don't know what happened to EA/Maxis whatever I think the creator's name is Matt, but sims 3 is a huge money sucking disappointment to me. I waited till it started to go down in price to buy it because I was unsure of how it was going to be. I wish I still knew where all my sims 2 stuff was because i never would have purchased any of the sims 3 junk if i knew where that stuff was.

anyway, this expansion pack is not worth it. one new outfit one new hair style for the adults / young adults. a few new build it things and i think only four or five new interactive furniture pieces. over all not worth your money. Come on Sims people you are coming out with sims 4 now please, and i mean please restore it to at least the sims 2 where expansion packs didn't cost as much as the game itself and really added worth while stuff and gameplay. thus far the only expansion pack that seems to add much was the world tour or vacation one.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Sims 3 Monte Vista [Download] March 28, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
The Sims 3 Monte Vista was not as extensive as I had hoped. I thought it was another destination to "travel" to in the game, and I was looking forward to "traveling" to Italy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mmmmm...Pizza! March 29, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
Anything that enables one to make his or her own pizza rather than calling for overpriced delivery is a wonderful addition and a blessing to any game universe. But even beyond that, the decor and quaint little town are nifty.

Like anything else in the realm of Sims expansion packs, I wouldn't pay full price. Wait for at least a 50% markdown (which I did).

I do love this world. It's got a nice "little Italy" feel to it and I do enjoy that about it.

I'm a part-time Simmer and I love design, decor, and gameplay with beautiful vistas. My Sims like to be outdoors. And if they can be outdoors in an idealized yet realistic Tuscan landscape, so much the better. I noticed that almost every Sim wears mirrored sunglasses - to dim the light and perhaps because they are dazzled by the loveliness of the Sims around them? Every Sim in this world is exceptionally beautiful. The pre-existing homes are attractive, and I have been able to modify the "Provence" style and even "Island" style sets to fit into the decor.

I followed the very simple instructions provided by Amazon and the download and install was completed in under 15 minutes with a high-speed (wifi) connection.

One small note, not a complaint, just a known "glitch". The area surrounding the main part of town is very hilly, so if your Sims encounter each other on the hillside, many simple social interactions, e.g., "hold hands" are not possible because of the slope.

I'm looking forward to some wood-fired oven pizza...although I hate to admit that the best pizza I've ever had was in the South of France and not in Italy.
