I also want to mention that you do not have to use the Amazon downloader, you can enter your keys at EA, and use their download manger to download the games. It took about 12 hours to download both copies of the game.
To update the game, do not use the EA download manager (EADM) that installs with the game because it will make it so your game is unable to update the expansion pack, which I happen to learn the hard way :(
Follow the steps below to properly update the game:
1. Install Sims 3 (do not update)
2. Download the new EADM at the EA website.
3. Open Sims 3, and update
4. Install Ambitions and update
If you failed to do this, then just uninstall everything (select cancel to de-authorizing this computer) and reinstall in the order I listed above.
The base EA game is pretty lame. EA has this mode called story progression were they programmed the game to just randomly delete Sim families and add new ones. This means that one of your Sim families could disappear. Luckily modders have fixed this problem.
There are two major mods which are must for this game:
1. Awesome Mod, which add new interactions and fix a bunch of bugs that EA left behind.
2. Nraads' Story Progression Mod, which is a complete revamp of EA's crappy story progression. This mod will not randomly delete Sim families, but instead have Sims interact with the neighborhood based on their personality. This makes the neighborhood feel more life like, as NPC Sims will actually do stuff while your playing your Sim.Read more ›
Works on my Win 7 Home premium 64 bit, no download or install errors.
I bought this game several months ago but still couldn't play it.
Just because Origin does not accept it and the "thesims.com" redirection always point me to a broken homepage.
4-stars instead of 5 because EA seems to have gotten a bit... greedy. The game itself is already expensive, the expansion packs cost almost as much as the base game. And, you don't get many options in the base game. Fortunately there are a lot of sites with free download to add clothing and objects.
Overall, a total time-suck - but a fun one. I wish EA would make the expansions and downloads more reasonably priced, but, the base game with Ambitions should keep me entertained for a while.
I could rember when they came out they were not that fun then the sims 2 came out and it was still not fun then the sims 3 and i can't wait to see the sims 4 come out.
it's a good game to play even if you are stressed out and all it helps you to relax and feel better it helps me alot..
