The Sims 3 Pets (Xbox 360)
Advantages: Funny game and enjoyable gameplay
Disadvantages: Hard challenges and achievements, little attention to detail
This game is a very light hearted humour game, it combines lifestyle and stupidity in one. People who don't play sims and think its all just boring stuff like raising a family with pets, you are very wrong. some of the challenges reflect this such as activating the riot karma power during a wedding party, and turning your neighbour into a ghost then zapping them for fun... Just a quick note about the title, this is a reference to many of the hilarious puns in the sims 3, and this is actually what it says on your xbox status when you pause the game.
The game has pretty standard graphics, not much attention to detail but it is in HD. By standard graphics of course i mean i wasn't impressed given that you can zoom in so far you can almost see the markings on a coffee table. Credit where credit is due the TV's do have little scart leads on the back of them... nice.
There is a real lack of objects compared to this Sims 2. There were massive DJ Booths and swimming facilities objects that you could use but now they're all gone, and you only get a handful of electronics. computers, all in one hifi's and TV. Thats your lot. No fans? No speakers to choose from? Not even a satellite dish in the Decor section.
The pets have minds of their own and particularly with dogs can earn their keep through working or digging or stealing things to earn you money. the higher their skill in that profession the more they will earn you. You can also use the pets to complete challenges and achievements.
The achievements in this game are much harder than in the original Sims 3 because of the amount of tasks you must do before you can get them. Note that they are also low gamerscore. 25G to send a simbot back in time? you have to reach inventing level 10, build a time machine, charge it, gather 100 scrap palladium, get a heart cut pink diamond (very rare) and then build the simbot after waiting for 4 opportunities. I can proudly say i have this achievement!!
Overall a harder game than the sims 3 and it lacks the number of intractable objects from the sims 2 but its still a highly recommended game even just for a laugh.
Summary: Still a very good game despite the flaws and good for a laugh.
