Amazon.com

The Sims: House Party Expansion Pack is all about, well, parties. Everything in it is designed to make parties more fun for both you and your Sims! There will be lots of new things to do, including many different new group activities. There are more than 100 new objects and characters, five new music styles, five new dance styles to match the new music, and three new themes--cowboy, luau, and rave. It's an add-on pack, so you will still need The Sims to play.

Features:

Over 80 New Objects: More than just new furniture and accessories, objects like dance cages and a mechanical bull will give you everything you need to create the perfect party atmosphere for your Sims.

Group Activities: Whether it's roasting marshmallows around a campfire or playing charades in the family room, there's much more for your Sims to do together.

Rave, Cowboy, and Luau Design Sets: Three new architecture and décor sets will let you create everything from a kitschy dude ranch to an island hideaway to an underground dance club.

New Characters to Party With: Hire a caterer to keep the plates full at the debutante ball, or a dancer to pop out of the cake at the bachelorette party.

New Music and Dance Moves: Build a dance floor with a DJ booth and watch your Sims take to the floor with new moves based on five music styles (rap, techno, country, beach, and disco).

Costumes: What's a toga party without the bed sheets? The new costume trunk comes with new outfits for your Sims and their guests.

I've had this game for less than 24 hours so I'll give you the skinny on what I know so far:
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.

By A Customer on April 1, 2001
This game is an expansion pack for the wildly popular game of the year for 2000, The Sims. Putting it basically, if you liked The Sims, you'll love this! It adds a TON of new objects, some of the best being: Campfire, which your Sims group around and sing songs, roast marshmellows, or tell stores; Mechanical Bull, which your Sims can ride for fun and the hard to get Body skill points; The Cake of Surprises, which will give you an exotice dancer; the Costume Trunk, which puts all of your Sims in the same genre of outfits; the Bubble Blower, a fun object for four Sims; the catering table, which holds many types of foods for your guests to grab whenever they want; the DJ table, with several types and new music; and the dance floor, totally awesome!! In addition to these, it adds plenty of new objects such as chairs, tables, and other common objects that can be used any time. It is now easier then ever to throw a party. Your Sims can go to the phone and select "Throw Party" and every other Sim they've met in the neighborhood will drop by. Then you can get ready for some serious socialzing! The expansion also adds things like floors, fences, and walls, and an awesome elevator! There are many new build mode objects. Then, there are the NPCs. The caterer, who keeps your table filled (for a fee), the Mime, male and female dancers, the Party Crasher, the campfire ghost, Drew Carey, and even more are rumored... If you liked The Sims and Livin' Large, this is a total MUST HAVE!!!

If you are a devoted 'Simmer' this game is something you will want to get.

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.

This expansion rocks. I've always wanted to see what the flirtatious (to be polite) Bella Goth would be like on the dance floor, and man, I wasn't disapointed.
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!
SPOILER ALERT!
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.
