Conclusion: Sure, The Sims 3 Pets is a robust package that deepens the feline and canine experience, but it doesn't translate all that well to the console space, nor does it provide enough new content to bring back fans burnt out on the core game.
Excerpt: Once again, we are treated to another amazingly addictive Sims game, The Sims 3 Pets . Fair warning though, once you start playing, you'll find that you completely lose track of time and have to pull yourself away from the TV screen! The Sims 3 Pets looks exactly like The Sims 3 does with the exception of the added pets, which is quite a lot actually. There are so many dog breeds, over 90 of them, that you will spend months if you want to try them all out.
Excerpt: I think the day that EA stops releasing new Sims games then the world of gaming is indeed in a sorry state. Dubbed by some as a people simulator, the journey of the Sims which started in 2000 has lead this franchise to become one of the most popular series to date for not just casual gamers but also "some" hardcore gamers. There's something endearing about being able to control a virtual person as they interact with their virtual environment.
Conclusion: For new players, It's fun playing Sims 3: Pets. You'll find your self in realistic virtual world with your friends family and now someone to play with. You'll enjoy training your pets with new skills and turning them into unique personality among others in your virtual world. If you love your pets and want to create your family replica along with your pets inside the The Sims then this package is the best one since along with sims you get the full control over your pets...
Summary: When PC snobs bemoan the fact their favourite games are turning to the dark side and appearing on childish consoles, the imagination and tenacity of a skilled developer is usually enough to silence their petty griping. But in the case of The Sims 3: Pets, this latest spin-off from the 150m-selling life simulator should never have made the audacious leap to your living room. The main problem is continuity.
Conclusion: It's the minor technical issues, visual inconsistencies and cumbersome control system - with or without Kinect - which keep reminding me that the console is not The Sims 3's natural habitat. During play I often found myself wishing I was sitting in front of my PC instead. For what it's worth, EA has done a commendable job of translating the incredibly rich and detailed world of The Sims to the Xbox 360, and there have been very few concessions made in terms of content...
Pros: A treasure trove of sandbox gaming delights, Pets present a refreshing angle on the traditional Sims gameplay
Cons: Awkward control system, both with Kinect and without, Not as polished as its PC counterpart, Lacks some content from the PC version
Excerpt: Der er sket en voldsom udvikling i livssimulatorer siden Activisions fantastiske 1986-hit Alter Ego til Commodore 64. EA’s The Sims-serie har i mere end et årti domineret markedet, og det er blevet til et utal af udvidelsespakker, samlinger osv., og vi har nærmest ikke tal på, hvor mange The Sims-titler, vi har anmeldt her på Gamesector.
Pros: Tusindvis af timers spilletid Konsolstyringen virker godt Kæledyrene er nuttede
Cons: Loade-tider Kun katte og hunde i konsoludgaven Burde have været en udvidelsespakke Svag grafik (men ikke så vigtigt)
