Amazon.ca Product Description

In The Sims: Superstar expansion pack for The Sims, players can realize their fantasies of fame and fortune as they pursue the dream of being a rock star, a movie star, or a supermodel and live the lifestyle of a celebrity. All new gameplay, new social interactions, and a whole new in-game destination offer players an all-access pass to the world of superstardom.

For the first time ever, players can follow their Sims to work and witness their pursuit of fame and fortune firsthand. Fledgling Sims start by signing with an agent and shuttling to Studio Town, a new and fully customizable destination that offers television and movie lots, spa locations, recording studios, and fabulous fashion facilities. Once there, Sims can schmooze, network, and name-drop their way to stardom in the movies, music, or fashion. Will your Sim be a flash in the pan or a living legend? Players can now track the sizzle of their Sims with an all-new fame score.

A new cast of comical characters are available to assist the Sims in their quest for celebrity. A fabulous fashion designer, a mega-hit record producer, and a maniacal movie director are available for career critiques. A capable butler, a savvy sushi chef, and a soothing masseuse will be on call to administer to the every whim of your celebrity Sim. Life in the spotlight would not be complete without the glare of the paparazzi, the adoration of groupies, and the annoyance of an obsessed fan or two. This is all part of life in the spotlight in The Sims: Superstar.

Sims can become a celeb or just live like one. Fabulous new objects like a skydiving simulator, a satellite dish, and a new art and furniture collection can turn an ordinary Sim's abode into a magnificent and decadent manse. Sims in need of a day of indulgence and pampering can also enjoy the new day spa, complete with mud treatments, steam baths, Sim massages, and an oxygen bar. Domestic staff is also available for hire so manicured Sims won't chap their hands with the drudgery of household maintenance.

Will your Sim become an icon or fade into the obscurity of bad dinner theater? Will they win a coveted Simmy award or be regulated to personal hygiene commercials? In The Sims: Superstar, you are the idol maker.

Note: This is an expansion pack for The Sims and requires the full version of The Sims to play.

On ne change pas une formule qui gagne, et ce nouvel add-on, pour le jeu devenu culte Les Sims, constitue sa septième extension, rien que ça ! Dans Les Sims : Superstar, vous allez avoir l’occasion de transformer vos personnages en vedettes ! Cinéma, mode ou chanson, les nouvelles carrières qui vous sont proposées sont pour le moins dorées et les objets d’ameublement et de décoration qui vont avec le sont tout autant. Du simulateur de chute libre à la limousine interminable en passant par les centaines de chaînes câblées dans lesquelles vous pourrez suivre, entre autres, l’évolution de votre notoriété, vos avatars risquent rapidement de prendre la grosse tête. L’humour qui caractérise la série est toujours omniprésent avec, par exemple, des personnages très marqués tels qu’un producteur de disque déjanté ou bien un créateur de mode très spécial… Fait remarquable, vous pourrez suivre, pour la première fois dans la saga, les Sims sur leur lieu de "travail"… --Arnold Vincent

There's only one word to describe this game.......Wow!! Definitely the most fun game in the series the sims superstar finally allows you to follow your sims through a career in music, fasion, and acting. And when your not hard at work earning star power take a break at one of the many fabulous spas in studio town and drop your name. I've been playing this game for over almost a month and I still am not bored of it. Most of the games in the series have became old and not as exciting after a few days but this one keeps the fun coming. It's also more difficult than any other expansion pack in the series to date.Definitely worth your hard earned money. This game sets the new standard for all games. Pick it up today.

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.

Maxis and the makers of the Sims have done it again. Just when I thought there was no way they could produce a better Sims expansion pack, just when I thought there was nothing else they could make the Sims able to do - Sims Superstar arrives! In this Sims expansion for the first time you control the career of your sim. It is your responsibility to get them signed to a talent agency, to take them to "Studio Town" and to make them work to be a better talent.
The ability to control the career of your Sim is absolutely fabulous. I loved being able to decide whether my Sims should begin a career as a singer, actor or model. Studio Town has enough new features to keep you interested for a long time. Some of the new items include spa items like the mud bath and oxygen bar, new career items like the kareoke stage, model runway, and some things that are just plain fun like the underwater tank and the sky diving simulator. In addition a whole ton of new floors, walls, roofs, rugs, furniture and gadgets have been added for you to add to your house. It is also very cool that when in "Studio Town" you have to keep your eyes open for famous sims (Marilyn Monroe, Avril Levigne, Christina Aguilera).
The Sims Superstar expanision can really slow down your computer. I don't have a ton of money for a really fast processor so the addition of this expanison has slowed down my game play and how fast the computer responds. Just something to keep in mind if you have an older or slower computer. Additionally, while the "Fame" career track is awesome it does require a lot of work - this is not a career you take a laid back approach to. Your sim has to be working toward getting famous all the time. There is no rest.

I was waiting along time for this game which I thought would be the best thing since the Sims itself.....big mistake. Oh sure, it does what the other expansions do: adds new items, new interactions, so on and so forth. But the superstar part of it...the very essence of the expansion, was, in my opinion, not a success. I mean, it's fun, but the thing that really dissapointed me was that, unlike how they advertised it, you don't actually pick your carrer!!! Instead of getting to CHOSE wheter you are an actor, model, or rock star, you have to do a little bit of each to attain ultimate fame. It does give you a taste of each field, but I would have given it 4 stars if you would be allowed to chose which field you want. The fame rating is pretty cool, though, and it is neat to have Sims you don't even know recognize you on the street, and give you an admiring "I'm your biggest fan" speech. The real celebrities in the game, such as Avril Lavigne and Christina Aguilera, don't do much than give out autographs. The objects, also, were not as great as advertised. The spa items are okay, although many of them, such as the steam bath, are a waste of time and money, and don't really boost your comfort motive. The only really worthwile one was the hot tub, which we had already before "Superstar". The sky-diving simulator and scuba tank give huge boosts to the fun motive, but are insanely expensive, and huge. The new floors and wall paper, however, were pleasing. The one thing that really got me excited was the fact that finally, after seven expansions, we get a new TV!!! No new beds, though (darn!). Personally, I think that Unleashed and Vacation added the most to the game, and that unless you are a diehard Sims fan, you can do without this one.
