Just saying guys I've got the game and played it. It's pretty awesome, I'm running it on ultra on a 7970 XFX DD Graphics Card. It has been well optimised, a lot better than Sims 3.

Yeah i've try it too, much more optimized than The sims 3…but hopefully the expansion packs doesn't makes the game heavy.
