From the Manufacturer

  • Join the fun with seasonal festivals: Sims can get in a snowball fight at the annual winter festival, get their faces painted at the summer festival, whoop it up at the spring dance, or bob for apples during the fall festival.
  • Experience the joy and challenge of changing weather: New weather effects and Sim reactions capture the power and beauty of nature! Sims can get a tan, be struck by lightning, or catch a cold!
  • Dress for the weather: Outfit your Sim in new styles for the season, including snow gear, wetsuits, raincoats and umbrellas, and new Halloween costumes!
  • Welcome mysterious visitors: New weather patterns aren't the only things appearing in the sky! Befriend an alien visitor and use their UFO to abduct a neighbor, invade a community lot, or travel to the stars.
  • Bring the outdoors inside: Your Sim can now learn the recipe for pumpkin pie or style their home with new furniture and décor. There are a host of new items to ring in each season. Get a tanning booth in time for summer, or ring in the holiday spirit with house lights and decorations.
  • Delight your Sims with new activities for every season: Whether building an intimate igloo, carving a scary Jack o' lantern, taking a plunge off the diving board, or setting off all-new fireworks, your Sim can always find new things to do throughout the year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mac Download works perfectly now! November 16, 2012
By Sam ✿
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
I was worried about the Mac download not working considering all the negative reviews the day it came out. The next day I checked back and noticed some people were reporting that the problem was fixed. I decided to go for it, cross my fingers and buy it. Luckily, it works fine! Didn't have to download Origin or anything and there were no Mac compatibility issues. The game is running smoothly, and it's probably one of my favorite EPs!

1.0 out of 5 stars OSX download that can't be downloaded on OSX! November 13, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
I spent 40 dollars on an instant download that I can't download because apparently I need to use Origin aka a PC only downloading client. There is a reason I went through Amazon to purchase the product because they usually support Mac Sims downloads. This is absolutely unacceptable.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT PURCHASE MAC DOWNLOAD November 13, 2012
By p.o.'ed
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
The problem with this as a mac download is that in order to install you MUST go through origin... buttt... ORIGIN IS INCOMPATIBLE FOR MAC!!!! So there is no way of installing origin on your mac thus no way of installing this EP. Im beyond pissed off. The thing is when I have downloaded stuff packs (through amazon as well) you did not have to go through origin. And if this is the new policy for downloaded games it should be stated so. I will be demanding my money back asap this is ridiculous and im actually stunned of this such lack of oversight.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rip-Off November 13, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
Amazon sold this as a Mac Download, yet when you try to install it on a MAC OS you're suddenly informed that you need to download Origin in order to install the game. That would be all well and good, if it weren't for the fact that Origin ONLY RUNS ON PCs. There just isn't any excuse for this kind of pathetic mistake. Now myself and every other hapless Sims fan who paid to download this new expansion pack is probably just S.O.L.

*UPDATE* I called Amazon and they refunded my purchase without any hassle. The man I spoke with was aware of the problem and apologized repeatedly for the mistake while quickly processing the return. So, I appreciate the great customer service, but this is still such an unacceptable mistake that I can't add any additional stars. Will go buy the disc at a store instead.

I AM SO ANGRY! I downloaded this for my Mac, and apparently you have to install it through Origin, WHICH ONLY WORKS ON PCS.
Don't waste your money. I am so so so so so mad. :(

1.0 out of 5 stars WARNING November 13, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
For Mac Download, it requires Origin Client which is a program run on PC only.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY UNTIL THIS ISSUE IS RESOLVED.

I hope for a refund asap. This product is falsely advertised!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT PURCHASE THIS DOWNLOAD! November 13, 2012
By alync
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
I was so excited to download this EP. I've been waiting for it for what seems like forever. Silly me for not reading the fine print. Though this is a MAC download, you don't get the installation through ORIGIN, which is ONLY FOR WINDOWS! In other words, if you purchase this, you'll be wasting 39.99. It is absolutely not compatible for mac because it does in fact require you to have the origin client which can only be downloaded on a windows OS.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nice idea, if it worked well February 11, 2013
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
First off, I seldom will post a negative review. I was excited to hear they were releasing SEASONS for SIMS3, as I loved it when they had it for SIMS2. However, the negative reviews about download issues kept me from getting it until this week. I finally broke down and got it...and a host of issues arose. I will not go into the ordeal of uninstalling and reinstalling ALL of my SIMS3 games and expansions, which I ended up doing because how buggy SEASONS was, but I will say this: the game crashes and freezes, not to mention the lag got worse. I am running Mountain Lion and this may be part of the issue, I am not sure, but after much on-line research, I found many have had these issues, even on PC. The main issue for me, other than the constant crashes, has been when I try to have a Sim do an outfit plan. The game freezes half way through it and I have to force quit. Considering your Sim will freeze to death in Winter if not well clothed, not being able to clothe them properly will prove to be interesting once winter hits (has not yet). I found this game freeze issue to be the most common for people. And EA does not seem to have resolved this. I have also found myself saving the game every 10 minutes, which seems what a lot of people are doing. Gets old after a while. Meanwhile, a new expansion set (University Life) is coming out and it makes me leery of even attempting to go there. So, you may not have these issues, but considering how many do, keep it in mind before you buy it and if you are running Mountain Lion, as I am. I also discovered that while having the SIMS carve Jack-O-Lanterns is nice, my game crashed every couple of minutes until I figured out it was the Jack-O-Lanterns making it crash. Read more ›
