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...
Summary: ***NOTE: The following review was written by my 14-year old daughter.*** I got this game and played it once. All what you do is feed common animals like squirrels, cats, etc. You give them acorn after acorn until it's your friend. It takes forever! But then again I have always HATED games like this. (I am a Zelda fan) The reason we got this game was because our cousins got it and loved the game.
Summary: My daughter wanted this because she loves animals. She played for about 45 min and then started crying because the cat was eating her squirrels. Is this some sort of a sick joke? I'm upset and disgusted at this company. They should be ashamed that their E rated game makes children cry.
Summary: My daughter's experience with this game ended after two hours with a cry and absolute disappointment when a cat came and killed her beloved pet squirrel. The game is rated "E" and supposed to contain a "mild violence". I don't understand how killing animals can be considered a "mild violence". If your kids love animals or just overall sensitive don't buy this game!
Summary: I was very much looking forward to this game. As a result of its purchase I sold my entire game system for 100 dollars instead of throwing it through the window. This game is so unfair. I wanted to get the fox so bad, which was the only reason I bought a Wii to begin with, and when I finally got to the fox, it was repeatedly eaten, sad, or "retired" due to the fact that it was the ONLY ONE of it's kind. I was so mad. SO so mad.
Summary: I was very excited when I went to buy this game only to tire of it within the first day. As another reviewer said, it feels as though you never leave the tutorial mode. Unlike the commercial lead everyone to believe, this is not like the other Sim games. You are not the animal, but rather a detached hand simply planting and feeding the animals to befriend them. It works the same way in EVERY unlocked stage, and very quickly gets redundant and boring.
Summary: Sim Animals is like your god of all these types of animas (bear mice squirrels etc) You're main adjective is to take care of their environment they live in and take care of them it seemed so exciting.. im such big animal lover... its cute but within a hour your bored, there is no sims in there btw.. which i knew there wasn't and the controls are tidbit difficult to maneuver. i think little girls would get kick out of this game.
Boring and it doesn't look like the trailers we saw and loved

Summary: My 8 year old got bored with it the first day and I get motion sickness every single time I play it and that never happens to me. I wasted $50. on this game, next time I will rent every game before I buy it.
