    More work than the other expansions, May 20, 2003
    By 
    This review is from: The Sims Superstar Expansion Pack (CD-ROM)

    Many reviews have already described all of the new interactions and items that come with this expansion pack, so I’ll focus on some of the things that may not be mentioned that I would have wanted to know before buying it.

    1. Overall I would say this expansion involves more work than the others. Becoming famous is an all consuming occupation leaving your Sims little time for anything else. Sims must spend countless hours in Studiotown.

    2. The game cannot be saved while a Sim is in Studiotown (much like the downtown area of Hot Date). This is a problem if you experience frequent crashes with your game. I find I need to take my Sim home where I can save the game every time he/she has raised their fame score, so that I don’t lose it because of a crash. This is time consuming.

    3. Sims run out of energy very quickly in Studiotown so not much can be accomplished in each visit. (only one visit is allowed per day)

    4. Sims need famous friends in order to become famous. I find it very difficult to make friends with these famous Sims, the friendship scores don’t seem to increase as quickly as with regular Sims.

    5. This one only applies if you have downloaded objects from online Sims sites: I have a user-created teleporter in my game, and it no longer works. The game crashes whenever I try to use it. This forces me to use the phone to invite other Sims over, leaving it up to chance rather than being able to import them at will. (Much harder to increase the friendship score this way). Teleporters worked with every other expansion pack, but not Superstar as of yet (hopefully someone will fix this).

    I don’t mean to point out only the negative aspects of the game, I do enjoy this game but am a little disappointed that it takes so much more work than I had expected. I do love all of the new interactions that are available, and like watching my Sims sing, act or model. I’m still looking forward to an obsessed fan following my famous Sim home. My Sims don’t have a high enough fame score for that yet :) (Also, there aren’t really 3 separate career paths, Sims access all of the items one at a time as their fame score increases, so they are essentially rock stars, actors and models).

    Overall, if you love the Sims, you’ll love this expansion pack as well. But be prepared to spend a lot of time trying to become famous.

    A great expansion for a fun game, July 3, 2003
    This review is from: The Sims Superstar Expansion Pack (CD-ROM)

    Want a collection of great new objects for your Sims? How about the most dreamed-about person – a personal butler! The Sims Superstar brings you all this and more.

    This expansion pack adds on to the basic Sims (or Sims Deluxe) game and brings a whole new atmosphere to your Sim World. You have a “Studio Town” that you can visit to persue your interests in high fashion, music making or movies.

    There are tons of new wallpapers, skins and objects to expand your sim world. There are fun new places to visit too, from a Sushi Bar to a Mud Bath.

    If you really want to persue a high style career, just like in real life, it takes a TON of work and a ton of time. Be prepared to give up some of your old sim-hobbies and to focus exclusively on pounding the pavement and working on your connections. It’s well worth it, though, if you meet the challenge and become a star!

    This review is from: The Sims Superstar Expansion Pack (CD-ROM)

    Those of you who are serious Sim-ians know: there are times when your adults sneak off to work and leave the baby unattended, or take a bath, or whatever. Next thing you know, here comes the lady from social services to take your baby off to a more-deserving couple. After Superstar, this will no longer be a problem as you can have your butler take care of the lil darlings. This is probably one of the best developments I can think of. Repossessed children are a thing of the past! Hallelujah! Now if kids would just grow up into adults, and adults into senior citizens, and if old age actually brought illness and death after a while…Oh well.

    This review is from: Armadillo 2 Cable Management System (Electronics)

    There’s not much to say about this product, so I’ll keep it short. First off, it’s pretty large and heavy which are obvious pros for something designed to manage mouse cables, and the base has a nice rubber grip that holds well as long as you don’t get it dusty or just wipe it off if it does become dusty. Secondly, it’s easy to use since all you do is press down on the Razer logo, slide your cord in and leave it alone. I set it at the very end of my desk behind my monitor and forgot it’s even there, but I do notice there’s no pull on my mouse cord any longer which is great, makes it feel weightless like it should be. As another short note, it doesn’t include instructions, but I think 99.9% of people can figure out how to use it properly or they wouldn’t be buying it in the first place.

    I don’t think it’s worth 20 bucks honestly, but I got it from the Razer store for 15 with free shipping and a 5 dollar off coupon from their easter egg promo. Overall if you have a small desk like mine and your mouse cord is annoyingly hanging off the back or whichever direction, this little unit will solve the problem within 60 seconds.

    This review is from: Armadillo 2 Cable Management System (Electronics)

    It does what it’s supposed to do, and it’s effective at it. If feeling an occasional tug at your mouse bothers you, then this definitely fixes it.

    Unfortunately, the item I received from amazon was scratched right out of the box – nothing severe enough to justify sending it for a replacement, but it was rather disappointing to buy a new item and get something that appeared to be lightly used. The item’s packaging wasn’t sealed at all, which was rather strange to me because every other Razer product I’ve purchased was packaged nicely and sealed. This actually could be a lightly used item, I’d have no way of knowing the difference.

    It appears at least one other reviewer has had a similar problem, so I’d probably just buy this directly from Razer unless you were bundling it for shipping (like I was doing.)

    The item works, but I would have preferred receiving one that wasn’t scratched at all.

    Any kind of tension on the mouse wire is hugely annoying to me… and this product alleviates it. This product is of great use to me and is exactly as advertised. I would purchase again if needed for another mouse.
