Just when you thought it was safe to put your copy of The Sims back on the shelf, Aspyr Media publishes yet another expansion pack to feed your Sims addiction with tasty new goodies and behaviors. House Party is an expansion pack with a literal twist -- instead of merely being a collection of more objects and house elements, the game instead shifts focus towards social interaction between neighbors.
In a review sprinkled with Simpsons references (and a secret contest) our own Michael Phillips found a lot to love about this expansion pack. Here's a sample about one of the new aspects of the game that assist your party-throwing skillz:

Review: The Sims: House Party
Hey Goober, Where’s the Beef?
Often times, a party’s host or hostess doesn’t wish to prepare food & drink themselves, thus they hire a caterer. Well, House Party allows players to do the same. Simply direct your Sim to dial up a caterer on the old telephone and he’ll be right over. Of course, you have to supply either a punch bowl or buffet table for the caterer to do his job. Throughout the party, the caterer goes about his work, keeping the punch bowl filled and buffet table stocked with goodies; all while picking up discarded food plates and even chatting it up with guests in a delightful French accent. Hiring a caterer definitely takes the tedium out of throwing a swanky dinner party.
