The Sims 3: Pets
A Must for Animal Lovers
I'm glad I got this game. I didn't purchase an expansion for Sims 3 until this came out because I need animals in my life to survive. If you're like that in real life, then your sims game will seems boring without them. The town that comes with the pack is nice. The new skills and interactions are great! If you have a gardening sim and own a horse your plants might vanish from someone eating them... and I was not happy that there are not many interactions for animals of different species. My dog and zebra can only socialize, nuzzle and bicker/bark at each other and using those 3 interactions over and over causes the other to get bored. Another negative is that inviting over a household, the pet will not come. You have to take your pet to the destination in order for them to interact with other sim's pets, even the neighbor!
Yay! This is the one expansion I've been waiting for! Haven't gotten a chance to play other expansions, but mostly cuz I really wanted the pets one! Super excited for the horses part and the fact that you can actually control the pets now! It should be awesome :D
Yes! Pets! If you love animals and everything about them, I encourage you to play this. It's like a flashback back to The Sims 2 Pets, but with more freedom and flexibility. You can actually control the pets actions, the BEST part about owning cats is that they can snuggle one kitten in a pet bed. It's so ADORABLE! I'm in total love with this game and would recommend it to any die hard Sims fan.
Pumped and ready.
I cannot wait for this to come out. I was a huge fan of the Sims 2 Pets expansion, and I'm glad they are finally bringing them to the Sims 3. Good work EA.
its about time this one is coming out. not that i have not liked the ones that have come out but i have been waiting for this one for a while. Now they have added pets! ill be in line at game stop the day it comes out.
Finally you get pets. after playing the sims 2 pets,i felt empty without them in the sims 3. now they even upgraded to horses!!!!! anyways this game will do me good. i'm pre-orderin' (when i get the money ^_^)
Horses won me over for this pre-order
I have enjoyed the sims since sims1 and gnomes getting drunk in the wine :D, but I am really excited about the horses... Looks great, keep up the good work sims developers...
The game is a great addition to the sims 3. The good thing about it is that they have more variety of pets you can have. The bad thing about it is that (if you are a sims gamer like me, and this is just my personal opinion) when you have pets, the days go by faster (in the game) because of your activity with the pets and then you start to slack off on your career then you get bored of your horse, dog, cat, etc. then they get taken away by the social worker then you're done. You're just going to have to adopt an ugly pet from the shelter unless if you go to edit town and create a family of just the pets your want and move them into your family. Thats the one thing I didn't like about the sims 3 pets is that, they don't have a place where you can buy a new dog or puppy. but everything else is great.
Waste of Money
I've loved the Sims since I was playing the first one years ago but EA is seriously ruining this game. I bought Pets as a fifty dollar expansion in hopes that it would add significantly to the game but what you get is one neighborhood that has only two houses that you can live in and of course the pets and they really add next to nothing to the gameplay. There are a couple of new skills for sims related to horses and the pets are kinda fun to watch interacting with each other–for a while. Compare this to the World Adventures expansion where you get to go to other countries and explore tombs and it has tons of story and new items and all that can be done with the game you were already playing. No need to rebuild a family just so you can try the new stuff. In short, buy World Adventures and don't buy pets or any other expansion that comes after unless it actually adds something to the game
It adds a lot of great activity to the base game!
This is one of the best expansion packs so far! I love it, I like how you can not only control your sim but now you can control your pets! I also really like the new town, Appaloosa Plains.
