This is the sixth expansion for The Sims 3 and it makes some effort to integrate with and learn from some of preceding ones, particularly Ambitions and Late Night. Ambitions was the first to give you hands-on control of what your sim does when they go to work and Late Night was the first to properly expand on the idea of your sim being a celebrity.
The new town is set-up to enable as quick a rise to fame as possible, like a cross between X-Factor and The Truman Show. It’s filled with clubs and venues, and so there are plenty of places to audition and practise your talents. These are handled with a good degree of humour, with magicians accidently sawing assistants in half for real in their first days on the job.
