  very dissapointed

| | See all amiebaby29's reviews (1)

waited so long for this game, christmas, to be so very dissapointed graphics dont work, the animal graphics look like jigsaw puzzels my computer is up too date all other sim games work without any problems i would not recommend this game to any fans . I dont understand how some people have no problems is it a glitch or a "friday" batch of disks.

  Excellent Game!

  Do not buy until patch comes out.

| | See all alispoon's reviews (1)

I bought this game as soon as a herd it was going to come out, around the spring time. I waited excited for the expansion, that I feel makes the sims 3 worth play. When it arrived I installed it and started to play. This is when it all went wrong. problems I am having with the game.
1. games crashes.
2. pets become deformed then return to pet shape.
3. games freezes then returns to play.
4. I can not create my own families as when I move them in to a house the game crashes.

In my view it is not worth buying until EA bring out a patch to fix it. EA have not given the many hundreds of people who have similar problems the realise date for the patch, but I read on a forum about 2 months so if that is 2 months from realise date it should come out around Christmas.

  Glitched, I'd Recommend purchasing when EA solve this

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 =/

  Unleash your animal

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.

  Pretty Decent

I installed this and loaded it and yes it may take a little while to load but i blame that on the computer. The game itself is very good like the other sims 3 games.

  a waste of money!!!!

all other sims 3 games work on my pc fine, i install pets and it doesn't even let me play, just crashes!!!! not at all impressed as i've wasted just under 30 pound for this, i am very disappointed as been online and checked loads of websites and it seems as i'm not the only one having trouble!!!!
