To me, the best part is watching them dance in the Dance Cages. The way they dance and the noises they make are absolutely hilarious. They literally shake their booty!
Then there's the Mechanical Bull. You can have your Sim choose whether he or she wants to ride Easy, Medium or Difficult. So far my Sims have been knocked on their tail and one even landed on her head when she was thrown from the bull! Plus, the bull makes noises and it's just like being at a rodeo.
There's a bubble blower. New counters. New bookcases. New bars. New windows. New doors. New wallpapers. Lots of new, cool-looking furniture. New sinks. A futuristic-looking shower that has a "10" for hygiene. New stairs. Lots of fences.
Even a queue line so your Sims will be orderly in the bathroom line without walking in on each other. Oh, and there's a male and female door so your Sims will know which bathroom to go in! A "special" punch that makes the Sims do weird things (my Sims keep drinking and drinking the punch but nothing strange has happened yet). A male or female dancer will pop out of a cake (very funny).
Your Sims (up to 8 of them) can sit around a campfire. There, they can roast marshmallows, sing (you'll recognize some of the songs in that special Sim language) and they can tell stories. One of my Sims was telling a ghost story (you could tell by his actions) - Well, a ghost rose up from the middle of the fire! Everyone ran and one guy actually had a little bladder problem when he saw the ghost.
Now onto the dance floor. When your Sims dance on the special dance floor tiles, the floor changes color. They even dance differently to each music style.Read more ›
Of the three games (The Sims and the two add-on's: Livin' Large and House Party) this is my least favorite.
House Party deals with three themes: Western, Rave and Luau.
Some of the objects that have been packaged with this game are very nice. There are some new windows and doors which is a very good thing as there can never be enough of them in my opinion. There is a transporter of sorts in the stairs section along with some new wallpapers and floors to fit the themes.
In the objects section you will find a trunk of clothing containing costumes for a toga party, an Indian costume and other fun things for your Sims to wear while having fun. A campfire around which you can sing songs, a mechanical bull, dancing cage, disco floor, DJ equipment and speakers, buffet tables, punch bowl, western-themed furniture and a trusty pay phone can also be found.
Of all the objects my personal favorite is the cake. For 300 Simoleons you can buy a cake complete with an exotic dancer. You have your choice of a male or female dancer. They are absolutely hilarious to watch and will stick around for a while after their routine. Be careful, however, not to allow the flirting dancer to anger your Sims dearly beloved! If children are present when the cake is activated a dancer in an ape costume will come out.
There are also some new skins to work with. They are tailored to the themes of the game.
As with the previous installments of the game there are some Non-Player Characters to make things a bit more challenging:
If your party isn't great a mime will show up to help you along. For me, he is equally as annoying as the infamous Tragic Clown.Read more ›
The Livin' Large expansion was fun, but was essentially just a collection of objects. House Party has new objects, sure--but it also has new ACTIVITIES, and new ways for your Sims to interact. In other words, it expands the gameplay of The Sims. This is a terrific expansion!
And the Drew Carey character was hilarious--since it never rains, I've always stuck the pool table outside. It was so funny the first time Drew came over and started shooting pool in my backyard.
