    This is a great addition.The parties are awesome (just as long you can throw a good one). If the mime shows up, well, your party sucks. The big cake is the best. :-)

    Maxis have done it again! Just as you thought the incredibly addictive and widly popular "The Sims" couldn't get any better, along comes this Expansion. Lots of laughs, plenty or new things to do and even more personality means "The Sims : House Party" is a must for both dedicated fans and first timers alike.

    Awesome game!!!!! If uv played the sims then u no this game is so much better. We all know we need money to buy things so we should all know about the secret code (Press shift ctrl and c at the same time then you'll get a box at the top uv the screen there u type "rosebud")

    About as worthwhile an investment as Russ Abbot's Party Atmosphere single, although it has to be said that the single represents considerably better value for money.
  2. Not only does it introduce a host of new objects, carpeting tiles and wallpaper schemes for you to use in your perpetual quest for the perfect theme or feel, but it also revolutionizes the entire party dynamic.
  3. House Party's new features, which focus primarily on social interaction, enhance the basic game considerably, since they let you throw wild parties and make building houses even more enjoyable.
