Sims 3: Showtime
It’s been said that life is a circus, a stage, a game and more in all manner of literature and pop culture through the ages. For fans of Electronic Arts’ long-running simulation series The Sims, it can be all this and more as players can now set out on the road to stardom with the Sims 3: Showtime.
The sixth expansion pack for the Sims 3 allows players to customize their Sim and set up a new career path in the entertainment industry. Careers such as disc jockey, singer, acrobat, and magician are available and allow players the challenge of rising to the stars or crashing and burning on their road to stardom.
In the town of Starlight Shores, much like in Hollywood, players will have all manner of studios and venues in which to apply their skills, perfect their look, their craft, and make it or break it in the big city. The expansion offers countless new clothing and hairstyle options as well as tour decor ranging from microphones, spotlights, Skeeball machines, pull-up bars, and much more.
For players connected to the internet and with friends, you can send your Sims on tour as well as have your friends’ Sims play your specially designed menus and stages. One of the nicer touches: the game allows players to hurl objects at various Sims to voice your displeasure with their performances. There’s nothing like being a harsh critic and crushing the dreams of a rising starlet.
The special edition Katy Perry set contains costumes, hairstyles, venues and more, based on her popular Teenage Dream album. Fans can even download a Katy Perry send for free from a website.
While the Sims 3 Showtime is not going to revolutionize the series, it’s extremely fun and entertaining new addition into the franchise which should keep fans well entertained until the next edition of the series or expansion materializes. Let your inner celebrity shine as Sims 3: Showtime offers countless hours of fun and variety for everyone.
