Great game...tech issues.
I have always been a fan of the Sims. my whole family plays the sims 3 and when I switched to a new mac I was excited to begin again...However there are software issues that cause the game to glitch, free, or not even load. Even though the system details say it is compatable.
Solutions and ideas can be found to resolve the issues, but I have yet to be successful with these tricks. So, if you are more tech savy than I am, you might be able to get the game going. If not, you might want to consider finding someone who is.
