On the surface, The Sims 3: Showtime adds some nice features to the game.  The new professions and interactive community features are nice additions, but in no way is The Sims 3: Showtime a must have.  While the professions are fun, they aren’t anything we haven’t had similar experiences with other professions.  It’s a nice change to dream big with Showtime, but unless you are really into show business or willing to fully utilize the SimPort feature, you’ll probably find little use in this expansion pack.
