The Sims 3 Pets Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

PC Gamer 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.

From the review:

Whether furry, hairy, scaly or feathered, pets integrate seamlessly into the life simulator. They can be inserted into new families from the outset, or adopted from other Sims or the adoption agency. And, because The Sims 3: Pets fills your town to the brim with wandering strays, your Sim can also befriend vagrant woofers, taking them off the streets and showering them in mind-smearing luxury.

Gone are the pet careers of The Sims 2, replaced by more realistic functions: dogs can hunt and dig for treasure. Cats can catch vermin. Horses can be ridden in races and made to jump over things for money. Riding itself is a skill Sims can learn, while hunting and other tricks can be taught and improved. The pets themselves can be controlled exactly as you would a human Sim, allowing you to placate their immediate desires (typically: sniffing and eating things) or attend to their needs without the interaction of a human Sim. And, just as with human Sims, wish fulfilment grants rewards such as the ability to vomit at will.
