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!)

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.

Great addition to sims 3, brings new furniture with a water/ seaside theme. Brings house boats and islands to explore with snorkeling, wind surfing and water skiing. Has new jobs, and professions. Enables you to build resorts.

This is not S.Eldridge, it's his daughter.

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.
It includes:
Job as a lifeguard[you actually do it like ambitions]
lots of clothes and hairstyles
houseboats
speedboats
uncharted islands
5 star resorts[you can stay at them or build your own]
Mermaids
scuba diving[you actually see below the top of the ocean]
sharks
a new town
pool bars
water slides

I do recommend this expansion to anyone.

Island Paradise comes with some beautiful landscaping and resorts, but it's also choc-full of bugs that lag and crash the game. There's many routing errors due to the way the world's been designed,. Some of the houses cause issues either down to being on lots that don't connect properly to the roads, roads that don't connect to each other properly, cramped living conditions (especially in house boats), or have arches in front of doors that prevent sims from visiting. There's times you'll see sims swimming inside their homes or boats sailing on the land and collections of sims stuck on beaches stomping and waving.

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.

The island paradise expansion pack advertises that you can take your sims to an island paradise to enjoy that holiday life, this game is misleading as your sims don't actually leave to go to a resort for a holiday, as they did in 'the sims on holiday'. It's important to understand that if you have established neighbourhoods and want those sims to go to a resort you have to either build one within a current neighbourhood or you permanently move a family to the new island paradise neighbourhood...but doing this will sever all relationships with your current neighbourhood, completely resetting your sim family in a new place. And you can only take one household to the new neighbourhood.

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.
