Product Description

Platform: PC | Edition: Standard Edition

Requires: The Sims 3 to play, not included

The Island Survival pack equips your Sims with the necessities to scrape together an existence on a deserted island, fashion a makeshift home on a floating barge, build and escape to a minimalist retreat in the middle of the ocean—or enjoy these back-to-basic pieces in the comfort of civilization! With more items than any previous Limited Editions from The Sims 3, your Sim will have everything they need to sport that island survival look, from tattered togs to shipwreck-inspired furnishings. With the Island Survival Pack, your Sims will be ready to simplify their lives in an island paradise!

New adventures await your Sims on the sunny shores and beneath the glistening water of an island paradise! From exploring the tropical isles to creating a five-star resort experience, your Sims can decide to embark on an unforgettable journey or make themselves a new home in this new utopia. Nautical Sims can even take the helm of fully customizable houseboats and set sail between islands! If your Sims would rather be in the water than on it, they can snorkel and scuba dive their way through the ocean. Who knows, they might uncover sunken treasure or befriend a mermaid! With innovative features never before seen in The Sims PC franchise and a world of new possibilities on land and in sea, your Sims will reap the benefits of their own island paradise.

  • Set sail for adventure. Be it by paddleboat or speedboat, your Sims can now leave port to discover new lands and explore like never before, from inter-island travel to discovering their own uncharted island. Landlubbers need not apply!
  • Build and run a five-star resort. Create a family-friendly resort of waterslides and buffet tables, a romantic retreat dotted with minimalist cottages, or a singles resort featuring multiple pool bars where Sims can mingle and flirt

5.0 out of 5 stars The best expansion pack ever 22 Aug 2013
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
Travelling by boat to lots of little islands is lovely and makes this expansion pack different to any others and really opens out the sims world. Scuba diving also works really well and is pretty fun. Haven't tried the lifeguard career yet but looking forward to it. Your sim can now own several different residential lots and switch between them, and can also move to a new world. They can also own holiday resorts.
Overall, fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sims at Sea 13 July 2013
By Amazon Customer TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I own all of the Sims 3 expansion packs & this has to rate as one of the best. It's great to be able to build & run your own holiday resorts again (remember the original Sims "Holiday" pack ?), and the new pre-made resorts are brilliant - they even have swim-up bars in the swimming pools. However this pack also has lots more features to explore.

You can now build a stilted home over the water or even build your own houseboat. Just look for a "port" site and select the "set houseboat" option. Once it's completed you can sail it & dock it at all the port locations around Isla Paradiso (the new tropical island world). Instead of the family car, why not buy a boat (power boats, sail boats even swan boats are available) - and sail out to the best beaches & dive locations. You can windsurf, or if you build up your snorkelling & swimming skills you'll be able to scuba dive under the sea (different dive locations are unlocked as you build up your skill). Watch out for the sharks !

There's a new life-form - mermaid. You can't make them in "create a family", but if you befriend a mermaid they can join your family as a playable character (baby mermaids are possible), or you can actually become a mermaid if you're able to get hold of some "Mermadic Kelp".

There's 4 new lifetime wishes, 7 new lifetime rewards, new traits, a new career (lifeguard), and of course new(water related) ways to die!

No instruction manual, and not a lot in the way of specific in-game help for this expansion. I've been playing the sims for years, but I found myself searching the Sims 3 community forum to work out how various new features work (like how to build the houseboats). Apart from this however, it's an excellent pack, lots of fun & I would definitely recommend it.

As always remember it's an expansion so you need the base game to play it - and check out the "Can You Run It" site, if you're not sure whether your computer has the spec to handle the game.

I found this expansion pack well worth the money. I had no bugs to deal with and the content adds a lot to the game play.

The house boats are really fun and you can get very creative with them. I love making house boats and sailing from port to port. Though it can be very slow travelling by house boat, it is great because only one sim has to drive the boat, so if you have more than one sim, the other sims can do anything they want in the house boat. You can have basements inside house boats, all in one bathrooms, ladders and anything else that you can get in a regular house.

Resorts. I don't really play with resorts that much, but with the few that I have run, I have really enjoyed it. The main reason I don't really play with resorts that much is because they are quite hard to build and it's not as fun running one if you can't build it yourself. You can stay at your own resort, set uniform and cook for your resort. You can do almost anything to your resort: you can add pools, rooms, and demolish rooms as well.

Scuba diving is really fun especially if you're a mermaid, because your diving skill goes automatically to level ten. You have to use lifetime points to become a mermaid but it is well worth it. With scuba diving there are limited lots to dive on but I think that they change around for each game, and you can only scuba dive in Isla Paradiso (the supplied town). You can find treasure, explore caves and find shells and catch fish. I really enjoy scuba diving in real life so it's nice to see my sims able to scuba dive.

The reason I gave this game four stars instead of five is just that I think it could have come with more furniture. I would recommend this to anyone looking to get a new expansion pack.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it 23 Nov 2013
By Chelle
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
I have really enjoyed playing this expansion. I love the house boats and running a resort, scuba diving I found a little clumsy at first but have the hang of it now.
It did crash a few times when I first loaded it but that seems to have resolved its self now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sims 3, you owe me 1 girlfriend. 1 July 2014
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
To whom it may concern

I bought this for my 25 year old girlfriend as a present. She loves it. Too much. When I get home from work, she's playing the Sims. When I sit down to watch our favourite tv show together, she's on the Sims instead. When we have our evening meal, she'll eat it later, she's playing the Sims. When it's time for bed because we've work in the morning, guess where she is, that's right EA, she's playing the Sims.
Apparently buying her this game made me, and I quote 'The best boyfriend in the world'. It has also made me obsolete. Tut tut EA. You've ruined things.

Edit : The World Cup is on. EA, I love you. Whenever I want to watch football, I CAN, she's too busy playing the Sims!

Edit of the Edit: We're out. She's still on the Sims. Hate you EA.

(In a nutshell, it's a good game!)

The game was in mint conditions so there were no problems. The game froze a lot but this is apparently a fault with The Sims 3 game itself when downloading Island Paradise.
