Excerpt: The Sims 2: Pets, an introduction. Very recently we looked at The Sims 2: Pets on the PlayStation 2. On the console it’s a brand new game. On the PC however, The Sims 2: Pets is an expansion. Of course the downside to this is that you need to own The Sims 2 (and if the stellar sales figures for the game are any indication most people probably do by now) but the advantage is that you can purchase it for half the price of the console version and in truth it’s a better...
Excerpt: Famously, when game designers first put forward the idea of The Sims to Electronic Arts, the publisher doubted the idea was viable. The go ahead was eventually given and EA hasn’t looked back. There have been many spin-offs, resulting in the franchise being one of the biggest selling of all time.
Excerpt: Having a pet in video game form has become all the rage. Since Nintendo unleashed Nintendogs everyone and his dog (excuse the pun) wants in on the action, so it's no surprise that the legendary Sims series wants in. The Sims 2 Pets on PlayStation 2 and GameCube plays like last year's The Sims 2, but adds pets into the mix and features some nice AI improvements that help improve the overall console Sims experience.
Conclusion: It's true that the pet-related content in the console versions of The Sims 2: Pets, while interesting, doesn't seem perfectly implemented. But surprisingly, the open-ended, unpredictable Sims 2 experience seems to work much better in Pets than in any other console game. It's perhaps unfortunate that it took this long to replicate a good PC Sims experience on consoles, but if that's what you've been waiting for, you'll find it in The Sims 2: Pets.
Pros: Improved AI offers a mostly authentic Sims experience on consoles, pets add an interesting new dimension to the game, new clothing, lot, and household objects and options.
Cons: Pet management is difficult to schedule into a regular sim's day, limited neighborhood size and only one downtown lot.
Conclusion: NBA Jam does have one thing going for it, and that would definitely come up in the fun factor section. Whether there are only a few modes or not, this is still a really fun game to play. The gameplay is still fast and furious and if you had a good time with the old ones, then it is always fun to relive some of the great memories the previous titles had brought. NBA Jam fails to recapture the glory that previous versions had brought the gaming world.

Excerpt: Electronic Arts absolutte flagskib har de sidste mange år været Will Wights "The Sims" serie. Om der findes personer i Danmark, eller resten af verden for den sags skyld, der faktisk besidder The Sims 2 samt alle udvidelser, tør jeg slet ikke gisne om, men populært er spillet i hvert fald - så populært, at det nu også udkommer til Nintendo Wii.
