Review:

From mastering martial arts in Shang Simla, China, discovering rich culture and famous landmarks on a romantic getaway to Champs Les Sims, France or exploring the depths of ancient tombs in Al Simhara, Egypt, players can take their Sims on a journey that will change their Sims' lives. Players can accept challenges to search for secret treasures, learn new skills and chase down new personal opportunities, meet new Sims with unique personalities, share their culture and bring them home, discover new styles on their travels, and share everything they encounter on their adventures with the world through personal photographs, movies, and stories.

Don't forget 10% Quidco.

It is not like you can understand what the in-game characters say anyway

I would check with EA if you can install this on top of a European release of "The SIMS 3"... in fact, is the downloadable version cheaper than the Asian boxed version?

Yes, I would do. It may cost you more... but if it is incompatible then the disappointment (from "the kids"; big or small) on the day isn't worth it.

If your house is anything like mine was last year I spent most of the morning & some of the early afternoon installing PC software & finding patches/updates & so on just for UK releases!

Happy hunting...

Fair points all. We are intending to play this as soon as it arrives, so I will aim to report back on delivery times and compatability.

An update as promised:

Ordered from BangCD last Friday night. Arrived Thursday morning. Delivery not super-fast, but faster than I am typically getting from Play these days (and certainly not "over a week").

It is the Asian packaging (the giveaway is the reference to US$10 bonus SimPoints on the cover). However, what I hadn't noticed before is that my original SIMS3, which also came from BangCD, was also Asian version. The expansion therefore installed and patched itself with no problems at all. Note that reviews on Amazon suggest they have also been shipping Asian version of expansion pack (but at least BangCD warn you before you order)..

Someone on Amazon site has posted a workaround if you do want to install mixed region versions of SIMS3.

So, all-in-all I'm very happy. Quidco tracking at £1.80, so expansion in effect will have cost me £16.19. Bargain!

Thanks for coming back to update us.

Sounds like it worked out quite well for you. Happy gaming.

BFN,

Unfortunately I think I have the English version but I've found a site on google which tells you how to convert the expansion pack's registry or something so hopefully it'll be fine!
