About This Content

Product description: Widen your Sim’s horizons with a bunch of killer new career opportunities. With The Sims™ 3 Ambitions, decide whether your Sim will be the brave town hero or cause loads of mischief among their neighbors. Make your Sim save the day as a brave firefighter, change the town as a leading architect, or live on the edge as a tattoo artist. Will your Sim find success as a billionaire high-tech inventor or eke out a living as a bumbling mad scientist? Will they uncover secrets as a private investigator by dusting for prints or roughing up a suspect for information? Their future is entirely in your hands!

Key features:

  • For the first time ever, you control your Sim’s actions and interactions while they’re on the job.
  • Be a hero or mess with the neighbors as a firefighter, private investigator, doctor, ghost hunter, and more!
  • Choose how your Sim’s career progresses—will they work for good or evil, pursue creative endeavors, rise to success as a mogul, or shirk responsibility as a slacker?
  • Your Sim’s on-the-job choices now change their town and affect other Sims as well. Modify the town’s structure as an architect or set neighborhood fashions as a stylist.
  • Enjoy all-new skills and activities! Master the arts of inventing, sculpting, and tattooing, and use your skills to earn Simoleons.

I dressed a man so poorly I made him cry.
Then I went home to play Ambitions where I did the same thing.

This DLC adds the most content to the base game. It improves the game as a whole rather than adding different content. New jobs are added, building interiors are added, and you can control the sim while they are at work. Great DLC because it improves existing features

Actually adds a lot to the game, unlike some other expansions.

-Professions, which allow you to control your sims while they work.
-Self employment, which lets your sim become self employed in a skill and make money by selling whatever they create/find via that skill (painters sell their paintings, fishermen sell their catches, etc).
-Adds more skills, traits, lot types and a whole new town.

As much as I enjoy this expansion, it's NOT worth $20! Don't buy it unless it's on sale.

The stuff from this expansion should have been in the game. These aditions are mostly jobs and outfits, but that does NOT excuse it for being a cash-in for what should have been in the lack-luster base game. Get this because it will make your game a whole lot more diverse- even if it should have been in the original.

This mod is fun but NOT worth $19.99! Like with most of their DLCs, it is terribly over priced. Having said that, if you can find it on sale, then definitely get it. It adds new careers, self employment opportunites, more work form home stuff, etc.
