The island paradise theme isn’t entirely new to the Sims franchise. In the original Sims, Vacation plopped you into a beautiful vacation spot for you to enjoy. In the Sims 2, Bon Voyage sent you to one of three awesome locations, including a tropical flavored area.
The Sims 3, however, has made the experience more real than ever. The addition of new features that have never been seen, as well as skillful rehashes of old favorites, make the game fairly enjoyable. Island Paradise takes advantage of the theme with excellent new gameplay features. Primary on my list of favorite features added in this pack is the houseboat.
