3.0 out of 5 stars Sims 3 Showtime: Katy Perry Edition March 28, 2012
By Jacqui
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm a collector of all of the Sim expansion packs, but some are always better than others. This one was decent. I was disappointed that I only got a few extra items for $10 more and there's really not much to do with Katy Perry in the game at all, except for giant fruit stage decorations.

I'm relatively satisfied with the gameplay, but I am still disappointed that there wasn't more to show for the extra money I spent on this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very fun expansion! June 23, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This expansion is the latest in the Sims 3 franchise. Its major contribution to the Sims 3 world is the addition of three new careers: Singer, Acrobat, and Magician, along with venues for these performers (and Sim guests) to visit and perform in, along with objects, clothes, lifetime wishes, and rewards related to performing.

This seems like the best-realized of the Sims expansions. The objects are very well-made, with plenty of special objects like mechanical bulls, jukeboxes, karaoke machines, pool tables, and more. The careers are interesting if repetitive, and the new wishes and rewards are really cute. The EP also introduces the concept of Simport, which allows Simmers to send their performers into other Simmers' gameworlds to perform and to receive other Simmers' performers into their own.

The hometown that comes with this world looks very thematic, complete with a "Hollywood"-style giant wooden sign in Simlish at its edge. There's plenty to explore, especially with the new venues. The families in the town are all right; they're nowhere near as purely fun as those in Lunar Lakes or Hidden Springs, but they're extremely thematic for the performer-dominated town here. The houses range from modernistic to Mediterranean styled; I found them difficult to live in and decorate, but they are very nicely made. It's not too hard to customize the world with your own lots and with Late Night and World Adventure venues. I should also mention that there doesn't seem like there's a lot of child-related things in this EP, which is fine for someone like me who rarely plays families but which might cause a Simmer who prefers families to feel like their Sim-children have been neglected.

3.0 out of 5 stars Do not spend the extra money! April 24, 2013
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I received this item a few days ago and found that the Katy Perry items had expired. I am not a fan of hers, but thought the extra items (hair, clothing, decor, etc.) were worth the extra couple dollars I paid. What a big disappointment to find that the items had expired! I had even read the box it came in, before opening it, but a sticker covered the section that told when these items would expire. EA shouldn't let these limited item games be sold after they have expired (which they have proved they don't care much about customer's problems) and the same to the stores that allow, and sell, them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great expansion! August 24, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I really loved this expansion! While pets has been my favorite Sims 3 expac so far, this one is up there as well. One of my favorite parts about it is the ability to send your Sim to your friends towns to perform - though the system seemed buggy and I did not get many successful tours to my friend's towns. I also really enjoyed being able to customize my stage with all sorts of cool props and stuff, though I wish there was a much bigger variety of in the themes of the props for the stage. There were only about 3-4 different stage themes. The items included in this pack are also really fun, including DJ booth, karaoke machines, etc. I don't think the Katy Perry version adds much for the cost and it's probably better to just go with the regular version.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Up The The Hype...Again March 29, 2012
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Like many Sims players, I really loved playing the game. The first Sims didn't overdo it with expansion packs but lacked graphics even though it was the most flexible. Then Sims 2 came out with better graphics but got carried away with expansions and once you invested in those the Sims 3 gets released with honestly not much better graphics. But Sims 3 can't seem to stop adding Stuff, Worlds and Expansions, not to mention that hardly anything is free at The Sims Store. But besides spending more on Sims than real people and pets, even some game consoles, it's riddled with glitches and rarely anyone can play the game without endless problems, losing hours of work and things getting slow, which is why it's got more patches than a pair of old jeans. Then custom content is risky as a result can mess things up big time, from freakish people to crashes. It's just become too big and nothing that's ever released is as fun or lives up to expectation EA promises. The idea was lost and hardcore fans (this one included) are tired of buying disappointments. Then, before you know it Sims 4 could come out and it's back to to square one and the previous Sims we spent so much on sells for dirt cheap that we'd never use again anyway. Maybe it's time a copycat game like Cities, that turned out better than Simcity makes their version of The Sims, that works.
