The Sims 3: Pets enables anyone to play as they want, whether it's the builder who creates the ultimate pet sanctuary, the achiever who solves all the mysteries in town, the experimenter who has a lone Sim and a house full of cats, or the storyteller who expresses himself through the adventures of his Sims and their pets.

Create perfect-or imperfect-pets for your Sims, from loyal dogs to daring kitties, as you determine their looks and personality traits. Then take control of these pets and experience the world from their perspective. Enjoy a little mischief by destroying furniture or impress others by mastering new skills like hunting. Lead your Sims on adventures, like uncovering relics and solving mysteries.

Players take creativity by the reins and play out the stories they want to tell whether it's the single guy in the dog park picking up women or the criminal overlord and her evil cat. Across all platforms, The Sims 3: Pets players will be able to create, customize and control over a hundred different kinds of cats and dogs like the Australian Shepherd and the Maine Coon, and can breed and share them with friends providing endless possibilities to create new and exciting breeds.

The Sims 3: Pets expansion pack for PC & Mac brings the exclusive new opportunity to create, customize and play as horses. Players will be able to use their horses as a form of transportation to get around town and also to raise and train them with activities like racing or jumping hurdles.

Whether the player prefers to customize the newest designer breed or be mischievous with their dog or cat, The Sims 3: Pets gives them the tools to play with life and create the perfect pet.

  • More pets mean more fun: With a variety of breeds and creative ways to customize your Sims' pets, create unique dogs and cats with limitless possibilities!

  • Pets have their own traits: From intelligent, friendly, and proud to playful, adventurous, and aggressive, determine the personalities of your Sims' pets
  • Pets can learn skills: Cats and dogs can learn to hunt, dogs can learn to locate collectibles and fetch your Sims a date. With career opportunities, your Sims' pets can even work their way up the chain to become the ultimate criminal mastermind
  • Sims can take their pets outside! Take Spike to the park, bring Whiskers to the library, or ride Star to the new Equestrian Center

Finally the eagerly awaited Pets expansion pack has landed but the major question, is this little more than a scratch behind the ear or a real tasty treat.

The first thing to note is another new location, the town itself is nicely setup, giving you the feel that youre in your very own Texas. However, its slightly annoying as youve no doubt spent countless hours playing nightlife and it really negates whole celebrity setup, the career is not available (unless you manually add the film lot) and pretty much cancels out the whole celebrity idea, plus if youre a vampire there isnt much shade.

Naturally all the pets have been well revamped so you have the same level of customisation as you would with any human sim, with the trait and wish system being very similar, at very least you can now enjoy a rainbow coloured cat without it being an act of cruelty.

As youd expect from the setting youll soon be horsing around, building a ranch, starting to fill the stable, riding your favourite horse down the street at a frantic gallop and trying to tame something a little bit special.

Now although there is a lot of detail here I feel there could have been more options, there was room for another career based around the cowboy theme ending with two paths of champion jockey or master bull rider not just the self employed horseman.

Also why is there no option for Cat or Dog breeding to make money, rather than just free adoption? Ok Ive listed tiny issues that could have been better but that aside it wont ruin your fun, the animation is on the money, the interactions are realistic and the Kittens/puppies adorable.

Its a wonderful and necessary addition to the Sims 3 universe, the Game is worth 5 stars but unless youre disparate for some virtual pets wait for the standard price drop.

 Great game

It's a really good game with plenty to do. Works FINE on my laptop, dont blame the game when your computer is awful!

 Glitched, I'd Recommend purchasing when EA solve this

| | See all ElectroHerz's reviews (1)

Extremely glitched with many,many issues , it has many common issues (just look at the EA forums) that i find appear on mine too .
I've done everything in an attempt to fix these issues , my computer is up to date with full compatible graphics.
I recommend people wait to purchase this as paying this much for a game that doesn't work isn't fair =)

Issues i found include :

1. The Pets do not load in create a sim , making it impossible to make a pet , the graphics glitch so they appear in an unrendered form . (i have yet to see an actual pet in rendered graphics)

2. Create a sim crashes regularly when creating pets freezing the entire game

3. The sims world included does not load , it crashes every time i attempt to open it

4. Graphics do not load on many things, photos of pet items do not appear in the catalogues

I hope EA manage to fix these problems , but until then don't buy it =/

 Excellent Game!
