Summary: I loved the reviews about the kids devastated that animals were killed by other animals or died because of lack of care. I have three grandsons and my hope is they will really take care of the animals and not plan for their demise. Seriously I think you can learn a lot from nature and things do happen in nature that is sad. I appreciate that someone has created a game that brings kids into nature, where they have to take some responsibility for the things they do.
Summary: This game is FUN I can't stop playing it. I love how you can continue to get new levels and different areas around the forest. Of corse the only thing is for little kids, there is the fact of the carnivorous circle of life. Smaller animals get eaten by the predators. Other than that, I literally get zoned playing this game it's really fun and I enjoy it so much. You really feel like you're "interacting" with animals - of corse they are virtual.
Summary: We borrowed this from the library for our 9 and 11 year old and not only do they have fun playing this game but also our older teenagers. The older children normally don't like games like this but they started playing it when they couldn't do anything else and were surprised that they had fun playing.
Summary: This game is meant for children. You are restricted to very small portions of land and it gets boring very fast. I was extremely excited about getting this game because I love all the Sims games and I love animals- needless to say, I was very disappointed.
Summary: SimAnimals caused my 8 year old granddaughter to be horrified and crying for the animals that got eaten by others in the first 5 minutes of play! These animals are named and she LIKED them! She didn't even want this game in the house any more! I have it hidden away and might try it myself later when she isn't here, but it is definitely NOT a game she will ever enjoy. She loves the MySims games, and she thought this would be similar, but it is not.
Summary: when i first saw it it looked fun but when i got it it was not good you cant just pick it up you have to tame it and other animals eat OTHER ANIMALS when i unlocked the dog i checked what it ate it said mice,squirrels,and daisys they also name them that just makes it worse it also says you can make lakes rivers and dams but you cant all you can do is lift up water and water plants or inoy animals i mean like whats the point of even getting this game anyways but i bet...
