That's not to say Showtime isn't a great addition, because it is. The singer career is especially fun although the sing-a-gram thing is tedious and it takes A WHILE to build up job experience for the next promotion :/
There's not much new content/new interactions, but the fact that you can be more involved in your sims careers compensates for that. I just wish there were less rabbit holes in the game and that you could be more involved in all the careers, but oh well.
Anyway, this is a good game overall and I ADORE the new neighbourhood. In my opinion it's the best one yet, better even than Downtown. It has a great mix of clubs and rodeo bars and karoke bars and diners. Plus I love that they added a beach building where you can go and play pool and have a drink, rather than just having a bit of sand like in all the other neighbourhoods. And the local park is fantastic, with a stage and a pond and just a much better layout than the boring local parks in the other expansions. There's also a separate kids park with climbing frames and such, which I thought was a very nice touch. All in all the neighbourhood just has a very nice feel to it and is very varied and I honestly feel like the town itself is the best part of Showtime.
That being said I have one issue and it's an issue I've had with a lot of Sims games: crashing and freezing. The game will have the dreaded (and more often than not unsolvable) 'Error code 12/13' pop up which prevents a save and sometimes it will just crash and shut down. I didn't experience the random crashing in previous expansions, but it seems to be common with this one. EA has a habit of releasing glitchy games and then even glitchier patches, so I'd just recommend saving often. It's tedious, but there you go.
All in all a great game and the annoying bugs/glitches are the only reason it doesn't have 5 stars
Still, I read some reviews and saw some videos and my interest was caught. I bought the game and looked forward to it's arrival.
I must say that I am enjoying it a great deal! I love the neighborhood and the families in it. The new careers are fun but they aren't what makes it so great.
I had looked forward to the pet expansion so much but I'm ashamed to say that it wans't as captivating as this one. I'm glad I made the purchase. Money well spent.
