Review

The Sims are coming ... to consoles and Game Boy Advance, with other versions for other game consoles. According to press materials dated July 1, players will create a Sim with a unique appearance and personality to control through out the game, and then satisfy the traditional eight core Sim motives including bladder, comfort, hygiene, and hunger. Players start life in a barn, and move up to a mansion with a view. Features include a scooter to move around, the ability to adopt pets, new jobs, and the ability to have conversations with other sims (a new feature). Unlike previous The Sims games, players will not purchase items. Players will now collect over 150 Game Boy Advance exclusive objects such as a Punching Bag, Fishing Rod, and Boom Box. Players obtain objects by attending once-a-day auctions, going directly to stores, or by trading with other characters.Copyright © 2001 Children's Software Revue -- From Children's Software Revue® -- "Subscribe Now!"

3.0 out of 5 stars More work than the other expansions May 20, 2003
Platform for Display:PC
Many reviews have already described all of the new interactions and items that come with this expansion pack, so I'll focus on some of the things that may not be mentioned that I would have wanted to know before buying it.
1. Overall I would say this expansion involves more work than the others. Becoming famous is an all consuming occupation leaving your Sims little time for anything else. Sims must spend countless hours in Studiotown.
2. The game cannot be saved while a Sim is in Studiotown (much like the downtown area of Hot Date). This is a problem if you experience frequent crashes with your game. I find I need to take my Sim home where I can save the game every time he/she has raised their fame score, so that I don't lose it because of a crash. This is time consuming.
3. Sims run out of energy very quickly in Studiotown so not much can be accomplished in each visit. (only one visit is allowed per day)
4. Sims need famous friends in order to become famous. I find it very difficult to make friends with these famous Sims, the friendship scores don't seem to increase as quickly as with regular Sims.
5. This one only applies if you have downloaded objects from online Sims sites: I have a user-created teleporter in my game, and it no longer works. The game crashes whenever I try to use it. This forces me to use the phone to invite other Sims over, leaving it up to chance rather than being able to import them at will. (Much harder to increase the friendship score this way). Teleporters worked with every other expansion pack, but not Superstar as of yet (hopefully someone will fix this).
I don't mean to point out only the negative aspects of the game, I do enjoy this game but am a little disappointed that it takes so much more work than I had expected.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great expansion for a fun game July 3, 2003
Platform for Display:PC
Want a collection of great new objects for your Sims? How about the most dreamed-about person - a personal butler! The Sims Superstar brings you all this and more.
This expansion pack adds on to the basic Sims (or Sims Deluxe) game and brings a whole new atmosphere to your Sim World. You have a "Studio Town" that you can visit to persue your interests in high fashion, music making or movies.
There are tons of new wallpapers, skins and objects to expand your sim world. There are fun new places to visit too, from a Sushi Bar to a Mud Bath.
If you really want to persue a high style career, just like in real life, it takes a TON of work and a ton of time. Be prepared to give up some of your old sim-hobbies and to focus exclusively on pounding the pavement and working on your connections. It's well worth it, though, if you meet the challenge and become a star!

5.0 out of 5 stars The butler babysits. That alone makes it worth it. April 16, 2003
Platform for Display:PC
Those of you who are serious Sim-ians know: there are times when your adults sneak off to work and leave the baby unattended, or take a bath, or whatever. Next thing you know, here comes the lady from social services to take your baby off to a more-deserving couple. After Superstar, this will no longer be a problem as you can have your butler take care of the lil darlings. This is probably one of the best developments I can think of. Repossessed children are a thing of the past! Hallelujah! Now if kids would just grow up into adults, and adults into senior citizens, and if old age actually brought illness and death after a while...Oh well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Been There, Done That but to No Avail... October 27, 2004
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I fell for the very flashy (I own the Collector's Edition), orange cover art of this game, and I completely bought everything it said to me, but I've been a bit disappointed. The Sims Superstar can start to lag and be very tedious especially once your Sim has achieved 2 stars. The modelling for swimwear and winterwear is endless, and I always hope in vain after every shoot that the chart would be upgraded for my Sim to have 2 and a half stars. I'm still in the midst of playing it and none of my Sims are superstars yet.

I recommend you to install this expension pack or if not, sign up with the Talent Agency only if your Sims already have high points in Creativity, Body and Charisma for you to go into the nuts and bolts straight away. It's almost impossible to work on it after you've signed up with the Talent Agency as Body for instance tires Sims out easily, and they tend to sleep the whole day away, and once they wake up, its their Fun that's lacking which takes half a day to satisfy, soon its back to their Energy bar dropping again and there won't really be a time to go to Studio Town which isn't all fine and dandy since postponing trips might cause your Sims to drop or lose star power all together.

Also, I recommend your Sim having a roommate. It's the social bar that's usually close to being empty through frequent visits to Studio Town, as other sims ranking higher than yours won't bother talking to you and other sims who are ranking low would only wantto hug you or ask for autographs. The fame-seeking sims are usually tired to bother going all the way to Downtown just to exchange a few words with their friends which could boost the social relationship immensly, while having a roommate is much easier.
