In The Sims Superstar expansion pack for The Sims players can now realise their fantasies of fame and fortune as they pursue the dream of being a Rock Star, 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 customisable 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 critique. A capable butler, a savvy sushi chef, and a soothing masseuse will be on-call to administer to the every whim of a 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, satellite dish, and a new art and furniture collection can turn an ordinary Sims 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 drudgeries 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.
Just when you thought that EA and Maxis had run out of ideas, yet more adventures for your virtual families appear. And with The Sims: Superstar, the world of celebrity awaits them.
Again requiring the original game in order to play, this add-on pack adds the function to watch your Sims at work, in this case attempting to make themselves famous. This naturally opens up numerous new pads for your characters to inhabit, laden with copious luxuries. Specialised staff can be introduced too, just to give your virtual stars a bit of extra pampering, and new career paths can see them become over-the-top rock stars, supermodels or movie idols. They also enjoy levels of success--successful Sims will attract groupies and win awards. Less successful ones may have to live without the sushi chef.
Certainly one of the more imaginative add-on packs for The Sims to date, Superstar is naturally enough a must for the completist. For the pickier player though, despite some reservations, this is also one of the more entertaining additions to the original game. The broadening out of the Sims' lifestyle is a welcome facet, and liberal lashings of humour do things no harm either.
Countering that, there clearly is a law of diminishing returns at work here. This is the sixth expansion pack for the original The Sims game, and anyone who's forked out for at least two of them will appreciate that there's nothing here to change things dramatically. That said, what's here is fun, and Superstar compares favourably with the expansions that have gone before. --Simon Brew

Studio Town, by far the most expansive new area ever introduced into The Sims has a world of new things to offer: e.g.Read more ›
In the new studio town area your sim can relax in the luxurious spas, go on shopping sprees and splash out on high fashion clothing, money is no object once your sim is famous! But don't get too keen because to become a superstar your sim has to get five stars (you get half a star for everything you do) and try and make friends with other celebrities which is not easy. Studio town comes with studios, spas and shops that Maxis have already built but you can bulldoze them and either download some other sim fans have made on the official sims site or you can get creative by making your own. The only problem with superstar is that because the graphic card requirements have gone up you may experience problems with the graphics like I did but fear not because this can easily be solved with a few clicks of the mouse although once you have fixed the graphics the game will run slow.
The reason why this game is so excellent is because it's a lot more interesting than previous expansion packs - there are more options, more funny scenarios and more typically OTT celebrity objects you can decorate you sim's home with, I thoroughly recommend it to everyone. I think it will be quite difficult for Maxis to release an expansion pack which will be better than this but they do continue to churn out brilliant ideas for games, like The Sims 2 for example. I'd say this game is suitable for people of all ages so enjoy! :)
But it's not just the new activities and items that make the expansion pack so good, it's how you unlock them. As a budding actress, singer or model you won't have anything given to you. Practice your talents at home and networking and working your way up the social ladder will both be required for you to succeed. In essence, the new "celebrity" status is another career. You'll have to work hard at it just like any jobs your sims have had before. Although this can get slightly frustrating [How many more famous people's universe-sized ego's must I flatter to get the role in that movie?!] it's mostly enjoyable and the rewards are all the more sweeter for your endevours.
Baisically, this is a very well thought out and executed Expansion Pack. The whole idea of making your sims worldwide celebrities is a very appealing one, and the new items, interactions and gameplay ensure that reaching your goals is as enjoyable as reeping thier benefits. If you own The Sims and are getting bored with it's 'everyday' approach to life, this is sure to give you and your sims a dose of decadance you both need.
