Guide Review - "The Sims Superstar Expansion Pack"

It took me a week to install "Sims Superstar." I wasn't expecting much and wasn't anxious to play. But once I did, my family couldn't peel me away from the computer.

The biggest and most anticapted addition in "The Sims Superstar" is the ability to follow your Sim to work in the fame career. Studio Town offers a place to become a Star and for tourists to get autographs and grab a bite to eat. First you must hire an agent and work from the bottom as a karoake stage singer to a Superstar.

As you become a star, the balancing stardom and daily life becomes difficult. You'll have to learn to keep your Sim motives up, while keeping and making star friends, earning skill points, and keeping up with home life.
