The Sims 2: Pets Reviewed

IGN recently posted a review of the PC version of The Sims 2: Pets, the latest expansion for the popular people sim. The expansion gives players the chance to add pets to their Sim's family, create a unique pet from a variety of customization options, and even send their pets off to work on new pet career paths. IGN gave the game a score of 7.4 out of 10.
From the review:
Pets have their own personalities and ratings, although those are a simplified version of their human counterparts. Pets can be trained not just in commands, but also in behaviors, to the point where you can train them to pee all over your living room floor and then roll around in it. Nasty, yes… but extremely amusing.Aspyr Media recently finished development on the Mac version of The Sims 2: Pets, and the expansion should be available this month.
Like Unleashed before it, Sims 2: Pets includes a few pets that pretty much have no function other than to look cute and up the environment scores. I call these "Low-Maintenance Pets," the hamsters and birds of the group, as opposed to the "High Maintenance" dogs and cats. Hey, you get what you pay for: the birds are cheap and help Environment ratings, but otherwise they just eat up your time as you feed them every day.
Meanwhile, a couple of things were added to the humans' lives as well. Most importantly is the presence of a werewolf, who can in turn make your Sims suffer from lycanthropy. Unlike vampires from The Sims 2: Nightlife, being a werewolf doesn't quite have the same game-changing impact.
