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 Game is good but did not work May 15, 2012
By Alicia
Verified Purchase
When I ordered the Mac download, it was only because i didn't want to wait to play the game. However, the download did not work at all. I tried installing it at least 5 times and each time, my sims would no longer play. Very frustrating. I ended up asking them to give me a refund which amazon did and I deleted it off my computer.

I have since ordered the DVD rom which works perfectly. And I think the game is pretty great. Although I wasn't interested in the social aspect of sharing everything, the new town is pretty nice and I love the singer career. I just wish they could have a town with both the city element of late night and the small town part that is usually included. Good game overall but do not buy the mac download.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too many issues June 7, 2013
Verified Purchase
Even with patches, the game constantly crashes and the game play just isn't worth it. I would post this on all the Mac expansions I bought. EA doesn't care about the issues ALL of the Mac users are experiencing. Will not buy another expansion pack.

We did not experience any problems, and we will certainly order future downloads as they become available. We purchased this for our Mac desktop running 10.6.

3.0 out of 5 stars Works as advertised February 3, 2013
Verified Purchase
There's not a lot to be said -- this provides a lot of new Sim stuff. It gives a facelift to your Sims game yet again, to give it enough variety for you to want to play it again. There seems to be a lot of overlap between these add-ons that don't quite fit together, like the music career, bands, and now the singers. Unfortunately, you can't really combine them all. Yet, it is still fun and that's just something that you learn to deal with.

I installed it and it worked right off. In fact, I would say that it was a bit more stable after installing this extension. I have all my software up to date, including all the Sims components and Mac OS. I would recommend you do the same and you shouldn't have any issues getting it to run.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice game and it works September 25, 2012

Actually It didnt work in the beginning, it kept showing "the game process can not be started". I was trying to update the game, but it didnt work either. Then, at last I updated the software on my Macbook, the game is working now.

This new expansion has alot of new items and community lots...So excited to play it tomorrow :)

P.S: If the game didnt work in the beginning, try to update your Mac's software, it works for me.
