The Sims 3 Pets Reviewed

IGN has posted a new review of The Sims 3 Pets, the recently released pet based expansion for the popular Sims 3. Developed by the The Sims Studio team, and brought to Mac by TransGaming, the addition gives players the ability to play as a pet for the first time in franchise history and see The Sims world through their eyes.
Cats and dogs can be trained to hunt, which is their only job skill per se. Cats hunt for other animals, such as low-maintenance pets, while dogs hunt for valuable ores and gems. Unlike previous Pets-like expansions, your pets are fully controllable, so while your humans are away at their jobs, you can personally command your cat or dog to hunt around the town. It's a far less crazy system and allows you the freedom to ignore it if you'd rather just keep the pets for their social benefits. Check out the page below to read more.

Horses meanwhile are a nearly game-breaking goldmine if raised correctly. Horses can be trained in running races or equestrian competitions. Your human Sim trainer will also gain skills, such as his ability to ride, and the combined skill of horse and human will affect how you do in races. If you create a new Sim and horse from scratch and do nothing but train, you can probably start pulling in over three grand daily after just an in-game week of training; it would take several weeks to get that much from a conventional job. It's a get-rich-quick scheme that actually works, but it's contained just enough not to unbalance the game.
