Great game! Need patience for download… The game is great. Runs smoothly. Reminds me of when The Sims first came out and I was addicted! Definitely recommend.However, I didn’t like the Amazon downloader. The idea is great. The average download time was 2 and a half hours, but mine took about 4 hours, and I don’t think it was my new HP laptop’s fault. But, the game did eventually download. You just need to go through various stages of downloading and each take an eternity. You think that once you get past the first download stage that you’re done, so you get disappointed when there’s about three more that take just as much time. Just don’t get too excited to play when you order it, keep your patience!
Won’t Install After Download nor Run…Amazon & EA Give Me The Run Around I have gone through about 6 redownloads via Amazon’s downloader. Averaged about 2.5 hour downloads. Every time I download completely and click on “Install” on the Amazon Downloader, NOTHING HAPPENS. I go into the file & click on “Autorun” & NOTHING HAPPENS (it originally would launch the Sims 3 Launcher, I would click “play” and it would ask me to insert disc…for a DIGITAL DOWNLOAD). I go into the file & click on “Sims3Setup”, InstallShield Wizard loads, & when it stops loading, I get an error message saying that “Sims 3 version 1.00.632 is already installed. This installs version 1.0.631. You must uninstall previous versions in order to install this version.” I contacted Amazon, and they sent me straight to EA tech support. I sent them an email 3 days ago & still have not been responded to. So, I have been live chatting with EA for the past 2.5 days UNSUCCESSFULLY. They said that my issue was complicated & needed to be sent to a “Senior Advisor”…I waited 50 minutes for this Senior Advisor, got to number 1 in the queue, & then go a message saying that no Advisor was available & that the chat was cancelled. REALLY?! Amazon and Electronic Arts should be ASHAMED of themselves. A digital download should NOT be this difficult. My PC is about 2.5 years old and meets all of the requirements. So, what is the problem?? This feels like $35 DOWN THE DRAIN! I WANT MY MONEY BACK, OR A LEGITIMATE DISC!!!!!!!!
