In this one, the goal is to become famous. You build reputation points to gain friends, get past bouncers into VIP areas, and get your picture on posters, t-shirts, etc. The graphics are cute and look more like a cartoon than life (vs other Sims games), but its still fun.
There are several districts and each has its own style. For example, Neon East (my favorite) you dress in wild neon-colored clothes!
The downside is that you cannot disable the free will. Sims keep trying to do things they dont need to do, like take naps when their energy meter is FULL! (This isnt kindergarten.)
I would still recommend this to any fan of the Sims family of games.
this game trys to give a story line to a sim game right.... i give it a low score because it doesn't have the good quality and complete customization. let me save you the trouble i had if you haven't played a sim game this could a good starter.
