This review is from: The Sims 3 Island Paradise - Standard Edition [Online Game Code] (Software Download)
Downloading the game I didn't have really any issues. I read the reviews ahead of time and already knew about the Origin account. I have several other Sims games and signed up for Origin for free awhile back. I don't believe you can even play the game now without it.. Before downloading I recommend you look into Origin. I also recommend you make sure you have enough disk space available on your computer. After the game downloaded I have had so much fun playing. I love the new profession of being a life guard, and watching your sim dive underwater next to sharks, fish, caves, and other sea life is really cool. It is like a whole other world. There are mermaids in this game, I love that they added that in. I also have The Sims Supernatural, and I wish they would have incorporated these together so you could create a mermaid from the Create-a-Sim page. There are other ways to turn your sim into a mer-sim though. The island you play on is great, I love how different this expansion pack is compared to the others. It is great to have your sim living on a houseboat and hopping on their jet ski, or boat to travel around the island or even discover uncharted islands. I recommend this game to any sim lover!
