Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Live the rags to riches story with your Sims while being connected to your friends! Experience the rise to stardom as your Sim performs on stage from one venue to the next. And for the first time, The Sims 3 Showtime introduces social features, including Passport, an all-new feature that lets you send your Sims to a friend's game! There, your Sim can perform at your friend's venue in front of your friend's Sims! You will also be able to chat with friends and post messages and screenshots on your friends' walls.

KEY FEATURES

  • Rise to Stardom: Venture into a new world and live the dream as a singer, acrobat, magician or DJ. Watch your Sims rise to fame—or go down in flames as they perform for other Sims.
  • Create New Sims: New traits and Lifetime Wishes give you more tools to tell stories the way you want to.
  • A Whole New World: The brand new world of Starlight Shores features new venues and new objects to hone your Sims’ talents.
  • Rise to Fame: Build your own custom stages and see your Sims perform in sold-out arenas and in front of packed crowds.
  • Book or Host Gigs: Using the optional SimPort feature, send your Sim to a friend’s game to perform in their world, book gigs, go on tour and even be reviewed.
  • Be Connected (Optional): Make new friends, connect and share your stories and experiences without ever leaving the game. Using the new individual in-game news feeds, messaging, and live updates, post your Sims’ successes, share gameplay techniques, create wishlists and gifts, search for new friends and share memories.
  • New Achievement System: Earn rewards for achieving goals and accomplishing special challenges that can be tracked and shared via in-game news feeds and messages. New achievements will be introduced on a regular basis.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hmm? March 20, 2012
I read the reviews before buying the expansion pack and thought to myself I'm sure it isnt that bad. Well it is, kind of upsetting, and definitely a waste of money. I have almost all of the expansion packs and their isn't very much that is special about them. Like stated in other reviews, you can only pick from 3 careers and in depth game play for the careers isn't much more than we have seen in previous games. I am becoming kind of disappointed with EA and The Sims. I would like to see games where I can follow my sims on a journey through life. For this game I would have included world tours (even better if you have the world adventures pack), tour buses, cd/autograph signings, recording studios, maybe even music awards. Some more perspective on the famous lifestyle, especially since they worked with Katy Perry on this. I would love to follow my sims into work (not just wait at home and handle the popup conflicts), interact with work or school. When they go to boarding schools, follow my sims there, cause mischief or at least still be able to control them. Give us a little more flexibility with our sims.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE Sims 3 Showtime March 14, 2013
Verified Purchase
I am highly addicted to the Sims 3 and when I bought this digital download, I had absolutely had no problems whatsoever! Perfect downloading, extremely fast downloading and installing. I love the Sims 3 and want more lol. I highly recommend getting Sims 3 Showtime, if you don't have it already. In this expansion, you get 3 new careers, Singer, Magician and Acrobat and you can also Sim Port to your friends town and perform in your Sims town! I love this expansion!

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun yes but unfixable bugs as well March 29, 2014
By Prosper
Verified Purchase
The general concept behind this expansion is very fun however, I have to say that it is VERY bugy. I did a little search to try to see if there was some fix for the bugs I was experiencing (yes, there is more then one!!) but to my frustration there isn't! Apparently the developers have moved on to Sims 4 and don't want to invest the time necessary to fix these incredibly annoying problems.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great outfits and hair! January 27, 2013

I love this one for all the great add-ons. Lots of great outfits and hair styles. I don't care for the new career paths, though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good expansion December 19, 2012
Verified Purchase
I haven't had alot of time to explore the features of this expansion, but I like what I've seen so far. I liked the new occupations and activities associated with this expansion. Guiding your Sims in the new occupations (e.g., getting gigs) is appealing, rather than the passive sending the Sim to a work location.

4.0 out of 5 stars This game is okay July 12, 2012
By Nicole
Verified Purchase
Despite some of the harsh reveiws of the downloaded version of this game, the time took about the same amount of time as any other sims 3 game download. Once the game is finally donwloaded, it is very fun and though most people only use the three major careers that are popular, the dj career is also fun to play with. I have this game and there have only been two crashes which were easily played back to where I was, and in addtion to how there are few freezes for two seconds or one full minute. Though after a few months, it can get a little boring. But for those who are true fans of the entire sims 3 franchise, they would love playing this game.
