Moving beyond just throwing more stuff into a box and putting a price tag on it, this expansion is built on a very compelling and consistent theme that breaks the Sims out of their current suburban environments but also gives them the opportunity to bring back new skills, stories and souvenirs that can impact their day-to-day life. It's true that the scripted nature of the tomb sequences tends to go against the style of the rest of the game, but the puzzles are fun and the rewards are worthwhile.

The Sims 3: World Adventures is definitely a fun and focused expansion pack that improves upon the franchise's strengths, delivers some new content, and, most importantly, adds a quest-driven focus to the gameplay. It is visually identical to the original and the controls are exactly the same, so veterans can expect no surprises in this regard. And, while there are a few technical problems that may arise, the expansion remains an overwhelmingly satisfying experience.

Without a doubt, EA isn't treating the expansion of The Sims 3 lightly - World Adventures might be a bit of a thematic stumble, but it makes for a significantly bigger and more varied game, far more so than any prior Sims 1 or 2 expansion has achieved. It's impossible not to recommend it to avid Sims players, but anti-Sims snobs will inevitably find it to be an annoying side-order of collectormania and repetitive puzzles.
