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!)
Island Paradise is a amazing, fun expansion pack to the sims 3.As soon as I installed it, I made my sims . They were all Island Paradise themed. Island Paradise comes with a lovely town full of wonder and admiration, interest and magic. It's my favourite town.
This expansion pack is one of my favourites.
Job as a lifeguard[you actually do it like ambitions]
lots of clothes and hairstyles
5 star resorts[you can stay at them or build your own]
scuba diving[you actually see below the top of the ocean]
a new town
I do recommend this expansion to anyone.
Mermaids appear on a low by chance basis each time you take a dive underwater, and once you find one you'll end up with half your town developing mermaid syndrome. There are 4 vagrant mermaids in Island Paradise but they're missing their tail outfits and leg scales until they age up (mermaids that started out as normal sims however do display tails and scales.) Mermaids don't autonomously use baths and showers, they only autonomously use all-in-one bathrooms so their major problem is dying from drying out. They also go for meals rather than eating kelp and since meals are only fractionally satisfying to mermaids they spend almost all their time eating yoghurts and cereal.
Being reset when scuba diving is a frustrating issue. This can be caused by exploring a cave for the first time or attempting to communicate with a vagrant mermaid that isn't displaying their special outfit. These annoying glitches result in your character being teleported to the nearest beach with the 2hr depressurising status preventing you from scuba diving until that time has passed.Read more ›
The resorts can still be built in existing neighbourhoods, but it's a bit disappointing as I really wanted my sims to go on holiday, and I thought it was going to be just like the world adventures expansion pack, adding a new holiday resort destination. Sims staying at a resort can still enjoy checking into a hotel and the new pool bar where sims can be in the pool and get a drink at the bar is still a great feature and the new water slides have some great funny moments for sims, but the fact that a sims home is never far away really takes away the fun out of having the resort, and you can only really enjoy the island experience in the new neighbourhood.
The new neighbourhood has areas where sims can learn the scuba diving skill. There are certain areas in the ocean where sims can dive underwater and explore an area.Read more ›
