The Sims 2: Pets Reviewed

Games Radar has released a new review of The Sims 2: Pets, the latest expansion for The Sims 2. In addition to adding a variety of new pets for players to introduce into their games the expansion also offers new features like the Build-A-Pet option and pet career opportunities. Internode gave Pets a score of 8 out of 10.

From the review:

If you're a casual player just looking for some furry / feathery accessories to your Sim household, as well as the humorous new actions and animations that accompany them, you'll love this latest expansion pack. Golden retrievers, poodles, beagles... tabbies, calicos, tuxedos... parrots, cockatoos, macaws. Practically every breed of dog, cat and exotic bird you could ask for is here, realistically brought to life and available for immediate purchase or adoption. In a wink to the beloved guinea pig of the original Sims, you can even own a rodent-like Womrat.

Plus, the stuff you can do with your companion does not disappoint. Buy them toys like catnip mice and rubber bones, teach them commands like "play dead" and "shake hands," put them to work in security and showbiz careers, or simply sit back and watch them dig up your garden, scratch up your furniture and then chase a skunk around the driveway.

The constructionist Sims 2 fans - you know, the ones who spend more time building elaborate homes and designing elegant fashion than they do playing the main game - will also be happy with Pets. Cats and dogs are customizable to a seemingly infinite degree. You can adjust everything from ear length to snout size to tail fluffiness. Can't decide between blue or green eyes for your Persian? Give her one of each.

Development of the Mac version was recently completed at Aspyr Media and the game expansion will be available soon in November.
