i loved this expansion. the idea that a sim could become a master explorer and explore china, egypt and france was pretty sweet. i also liked that each area had its own set of artifacts, recipies and special abilities to learn. i liked being able to travel to new places and doing the challenges.

I really have no idea why people dog on this expansion so much. This is the most fun I've had out of a Sims expansion! I really do enjoy the atmosphere of discovery and adventure that this expansion gives. The promise of loot at the end of the tomb, accomplishment of quests to extend your visa and stays at locations, learning native skills and songs; there's just so much to do! This is a must have for any Sims 3 player out there.

The dungeon exploration system is cool. I love the collectable relics and but the worlds themselves just lack the entire vacation feeling, and the experience lacks the consistency of content that was prevalent the Sims 2 equivalent. Cultural differences are hardly visible at all. All three countries feel and function pretty much the same, except the fact that you can buy some different stuff, explore different buildings, or learn a couple of different songs. Gone are the variety of hotels, spas, local dance styles, quirky encounters, fun activities, etc. It all just lacks flavor. I also personally miss having a tropical island option for my vacations, though I suppose that's a matter of personal preference.

All in all, would not recommend as first priority if you're looking to buy DLC.

Urgh, this expansion pack has some awesome features but a lot of bugs. One of the worse ones, i believe, is the fact that basically you can't access your family tree anymore. This was an important feature for me and know it feels like all my Sims ancestors have been erased.
