Extremely glitched with many,many issues , it has many common issues (just look at the EA forums) that i find appear on mine too .
I've done everything in an attempt to fix these issues , my computer is up to date with full compatible graphics.
I recommend people wait to purchase this as paying this much for a game that doesn't work isn't fair =)
Issues i found include :
1. The Pets do not load in create a sim , making it impossible to make a pet , the graphics glitch so they appear in an unrendered form . (i have yet to see an actual pet in rendered graphics)
2. Create a sim crashes regularly when creating pets freezing the entire game
3. The sims world included does not load , it crashes every time i attempt to open it
4. Graphics do not load on many things, photos of pet items do not appear in the catalogues
I hope EA manage to fix these problems , but until then don't buy it =/
