Fun Expansion Pack,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Sims 3: World Adventures - Expansion Pack [Download] (Software Download)
I almost didn't buy the download due to the negative review. I had no problem downloading the game and integrating it with my exisisting Sims 3 installation from a CD, with no harm to my existing saved games. As soon as the install completed, the EA updated found a patch and I installed that too. The nice thing about buying this as a download is now I don't need to have my Sim3 disk in when I play. World Adventures is easy to jump right into because it doesn't require very much money for the first trip. So even if you are started with a brand new household, you can send your Sim on a trip as your first action. I haven't played to much but there appears to be a lot of content. So far I've only looked around China and it is beautiful and there don't appear to be any rabbit holes (buildings that they disappear into and you can't control them). Your Sims still needs to have its needs met while on vacation, but when you return, it is fully recharged (even if you have neglected all of its needs) and no time has passed. The only downside is that if you want to take more then one Sim through the same adventures (exploring the tombs and collecting treasures) it will be the same the second time around. However, there are tons of new Sims to interact with so that will still provide lots of variety. For Sim fans it is worth the current $20.07 price.
