The Sims: House Party Review

Do your Sims like to party?  Really party?  Feel a little constrained by the fact that you can't quite put together that huge blow-out party that you've always wanted to host?  If you answered 'yes' to these questions, then you are in luck!  The Sims House Party is here to provide you with exactly what you need to throw that luau/country/rave/frat/disco party that you've dreamed about!

This expansion pack focuses on the social side of The Sims, giving you plenty of new objects and themes to help you host some great Sim parties.  First, there are three new architecture sets available to set the right decor for your party - rave, cowboy, and luau.  

There are also over 100 new objects to help make your party a success - dance cages, mechanical bulls, party games, dance floors, DJ booths, and more.  There's even a costume trunk which will allow your Sims to dress for the party, be it cowboy duds or a toga!

Running parties can be hard work, so House Party helps you out by adding a caterer to keep your guests fed and dancers to keep them entertained.

What's a party without music?  House Party takes care of this too by including new music styles and dance moves for your Sims to strut their stuff on the dance floor.

Finally, House Party adds some not so subtle indicators of your party's quality.  If your party is a dud, a mime will show up to really drag things down.  Throw a memorable party, and a celebrity might just come by to check out the scene...

This is a fun expansion and a must have for Sims fans.  The different themes and variety of new party objects will provide you (and your Sims) with hours of entertainment.  

In The End, This Game Hath Been Rated: 86%. A fun addition to The Sims lineup which will have you chanting 'toga! toga!'...
