  1. Once the initial novelty of letting your Sims do a Petula Clarke has worn off, there isn't actually a massive amount of new stuff here.

    A fine purchase for Simholics, but don't expect too much bang for your buck. [June 2001, p.58]

    A fun way to put your Sims into a larger party, but other than that, you can count this more as a "Livin' Large 2.5" than anything else.
  4. Despite the amount of promise left unfulfilled in this second add-on, House Party will be a welcome addition if you are still actively nurturing your sims.
  5. There are a few wonderful new items added to enhance the lives of us Sims, but they're novelties rather than staples and they won't exponentially increase your Sim's appreciation for their environment or your appreciation for the game - and for $29, it should.

    While the pack does allow you to throw an amazing party, it doesn't do anything else -- and parties lose their novelty pretty fast.
