Terrible waste of money. When I had windows 8, I tried to load this up and it wouldn't open. No matter how hard I tried or how many questionars I went through, I couldn't find the way. I've upgraded to windows 10 and I wanted to try again, but it still wouldn't work.. but now it tells me that I'm playing the game, even though I never even got the loading screen.

I think it is a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ "DLC" when it is a whole game in itself.

Don't buy it. Not worth it.

This has been a favorite for a long time. It's not like anything else I've ever played. The first timeI booted it up was during college winter break in 2011. I spent the majority of those 2 weeks playing this game and I love it! My boyfriend was able to find a crack/patch or something that makes it work, because I see a lot of the negative reviews come from people who can't get the game to work. I totally understand your frustration.

EA/Origin is THE. WORST. I have been in a hell battle with them for years. I am a HUGE Sims lover, always have been since the very first release. But as soon as Origin entered the picture, everything went haywire and I truly believe the entity known as "Origin" is a manifestation of the dark lord Lucifer on earth.

So normally I wouldn't touch a Sims game again, recoiling from fear and memories of trauma, but it's through Steam so I gave it a shot. Of course, whatever hex Origin put on me kept the game from launching. Boyfriend found a thing, like i said and it works fine. So if you can find a thing for it, you'll be fine. Just google it, you'll find it if you look hard enough. It took us a while.

Yeah, like many of the other people, I could never get it to work. I would have loved to play it, but it would always just say it was running but never actually open. I even tried downloading it in Origin and it didn't work.

I've tried for months to activate this game, It keeps telling me that the code is invalid but it was meant to be a new unused code but since it was gifted to me i don't know if it could've been used beforehand.
I've seen this problem on steam, origin and even EA so just save yourself the hassle and forget this game exists.

Okay so this game is amazing and highly addictive. You will never run out of things to do. Yeah its a pain in the butt to install but its totally worth it and I am here to help. I read through the comments before purchasing to learn how to install it. I had a lot of difficulty considering I had to read through them all comment by comment and still couldnt get it to download because some steps were left out.

So heres what I did.

1.- Download the sims from steam.
2.- Open your sims download through steam and write down your registration code.
3.- Go to https://www.thesims3.com/register.html If you dont already have one.
4. Create a login, password, username.
5. Go to https://www.thesims3.com/registeragame.html and type out the code provided from the steam download.

Heres where it gets fun.

For users who dont have an origin account you must then go to https://www.origin.com/en-us/download
Download Origin [which is basically EA'S STEAM]

While that downloads go to-

https://signin.ea.com/p/web2/create?execution=e2005779475s1&initref=https%3A%2F%2Faccounts.ea.com%3A443%2Fconnect%2Fauth%3Fredirect_uri%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fwww.origin.com%252Foauth%252Flogin%253Flpu%253Dtrue%2526ru%253D%252Fen-us%252Fdownload%253Flogin%253DWyIiXQ%253D%253D%26locale%3Den_US%26display%3Dweb2%252Fcreate%26response_type%3Dcode%26client_id%3Dlive.origin.com#panel-splash

And creat a login.

Once logged in and Origin is completely downloaded open it up and find 'My Games' section.
So now heres where I got super confused while reading peoples comments.
You should see the sims there. Everyone here was saying to right click and choose repair but that option is not available at this point yet.
What you need to do is go into your computer and find the steamapps file.
Create a folder on your desktop and copy all of the sims files to that folder.
Once fully copied, deleted all files for the sims in the steam apps file.
Restart Origins
Once Origins is reopened go to 'My Games' once again and the sims should still be there.
You either have install the sims option or if you try to right click now you should have the repair option.
Do which ever is available.
I downloaded the sims and then repaired it and ran it perfectly well. In fact I am running it as I type this review.
I hope I didnt miss any details but if I did, feel free to add me and I can help you out.
Oh one small details is that while running the sims through Origin, it will not display on steam that you are playing it. Thats the only thing I dont like.

Again I will say this game is amazingly fun good for all gamer types and levels. Seriously recommend it.

If you think The Sims Medieval is a bad game YOU'RE SADLY MISTAKEN! It's a brilliant game taking you back to the days of old and adventure and wonder. To a time where hardwork meant something, you take on the role of a King or Queen and start building your nation from the ground up. Turning it into a wondeful Kingdom for years to come.

You can also become a great Knight, Blacksmith, Doctor, Preacher, Trader, Bared and Magician. Basically you'll have a high renown for any of these jobs you take on and help build up a great country. This is exactly the game for you espically if you love these olden times of sword fights and adventure.
