Summary: My eldest Son who is an avid gamer just could not get into this game. It is not a bad game, he just found it too similar to social networking website games. It is a great deal though to get the base game and an expansion for this price.
Summary: *Have not played the game yet. We also had the common problem of the registration code for the Pets game not working. Called EA support and after waiting 40+ minutes, got a friendly CS rep. Said common error - look for a flyer in box about a limited edition Pet Shop that has a code.
Summary: I was excited to see that the price on this had dropped to $20. I have several of the other expansion packs and thought the addition of pets to my game would be great, but all in all, I'm not a huge fan of this expansion pack.
Summary: I was glad that they added this expansion pack to the series, but it was a total copy from the original Sims (The Sims) and The Sims 2... I wouldn't buy this game again if I had the chance to make a new purchase.
Registration Nightmare & confusing to create a pet
19 December 2012
Summary: Installing the SIMs game itself took almost an hour, but at least that code worked. Installing the Pets expansion pack that came with the game was terrible. I entered and re-entered the code several times but the "Continue" button wouldn't enable itself in order to load the game.
Summary: I like the game but it is very glitchy and it makes it really annoying sometimes. My sims can just disappear off the lots sometimes and I cant get them back until I move the family out and move them back in again. Sometimes entire towns disappear for a while and then show up a month later.
Summary: I usually have good experiences buying items over the internet. I have used overstock.com a few times in the past and have been quite pleased with the cost, quality, and speed of delivery of the items I purchased. This time was an exception.
Summary: I bought this expecting more than what I got. The create-a-sim setup is boring and tedious (I'm really not fond of having to pick a pattern and 3 colors for every single thing they wear/have), and all the sims look ugly and fat, no matter what slider or setting I choose, especially their faces.
