Summary: Parents need to know that The Sims 3: Showtime - Katy Perry Collector's Edition is a special edition of the Sims 3: Showtime expansion pack. It has all the same new content as the regular version of the expansion, as well as special Katy Perry -themed decorations, including an exclusive guitar, poster, and props that players can use when creating their music venues.
Excerpt: Fame and fortune is something everyone aspires to (if you don’t, you are not human!) and the Sims are no different. Up to now they have been able to make a pretty penny, both for themselves and for EA. In the Nightlife expansion they were also able to gain celebrity status while out on the town, but it’s not been until Showtime that they truly became famous. They can now spread their fame outside of your enclosed little game. Let’s get this show on the road!
Excerpt: The Sims franchise has always been one that provides players with an open-ended, sandbox gameplay that allows the user to create their own journey. Sure, over the course of the series, the game has transformed, adding slightly more direction for players. For the most part, however, The Sims gives you the feedom to do what you want. As a kid we are taught to believe in dreams and establish a goal in our life.
Excerpt: Ever since the original Sims released in February 2000, two things have remained true. Making people get jobs and take showers can be enjoyable in a video game, and there will always be a ridiculous number of Sims expansion packs. We now roll into the Sims 3 sixth expansion pack, but is Showtime worth your hard earned simoleans? Showtime is all about making your Sims a star, adding new professions, traits, skills, objects, and a new town to explore.
Excerpt: Der Publisher Electronic Arts will die Besitzer der Lebenssimulation Die Sims 3 auch weiterhin bei Laune halten und veröffentlicht mit Showtime das mittlerweile sechste Add-on. Darin dreht sich alles um das Leben als ein angesehener Star auf der großen Show-Bühne – mit allen Höhen und Tiefen.
Pros: drei Karrieren, zahlreiche neue Objekte, motivierende Karriereleiter, hübsche Präsentation, interessante SimPort-Funktion
Cons: SimPort-Funktion macht manchmal Probleme, Karrieren spielen sich zu ähnlich, stellenweise Clipping-Fehler
