Set sail for adventure

With The Sims 3 Island Paradise, your created families can travel around like never before. Whether the method of transportation is a paddleboat or speedboat, your Sims can leave the port and explore for land like Christopher Columbus himself. The new town of Isla Paradiso presents you with a playground of many new islands to explore. All of the islands have their own unique environment, with different buildings, homes, and perhaps even some loot. While The Sims has mostly been about taking care of your created character in the past, Island Paradise puts a new emphasis on exploration.

Build and run a five star resort

If you get tired of sailing around the islands on a quest of exploration, you can settle down on an island and start up your own business. You can create your own family resort from the ground up. Add waterslides, restaurants, cottages, or some bars by the beach and build up your reputation to become a five star resort. You have customization over virtually everything, from attractions down to the lights, tables, chairs, and decorations. This gives you the opportunity to make your resort your own unique place. As you improve your resort’s rating, you’ll notice that it becomes a more popular place as more and more customers will be vacationing to your island.

Boat sweet boat

One more feature of The Sims 3 Island Paradise is that you’re no longer limited to living in a conventional house. Now you can actually build your house in the water! Whether you want to live on a boat or simply a floating home, the choice is yours. With Island Paradise, you have plenty of options for customizing your house in the buy menus. You’ll get to select from a wide selection of possible furnishing, lighting, appliances, clothing, and anything you could imagine your new home needing. There’s even a new all-in-one bathroom that you can buy so your Sims can take care of all their hygienic necessities in one small area.

So you can run your own resort, explore, and build your own houseboat in Island Paradise, but what fun is it being at the beach if you don’t have time to relax and enjoy the experience? Island Paradise presents  many new ways to supply your Sims with entertainment. Explore beneath the sea as your Sims go scuba diving and snorkeling. You never know, you might even stumble across some buried treasure or a long lost sunken ship. Go surfing or take a jet ski out for a ride. The great thing about The Sims 3 is that the game is yours to play however you choose. You’re given a sandbox and a bunch of tools to modify the environment to your liking. How you choose to play is virtually limitless.

Many customers have said that they love the new customization offered in Island Paradise, from clothing to hairstyles to new items. Another part of the game that has received high praise has been the graphics, which are bright and show a nice level of detail. There have not been many complaints with the game, but a few people have mentioned that it does freeze once in awhile.

The Sims 3 Island Paradise is a worthwhile expansion to an already fun game. Some expansions don’t provide enough new content to justify a purchase, but Island Paradise offers some really unique new features like running a resort, creating a houseboat, scuba diving, and exploring from island to island that it feels like an entirely new game.
