Geeky Game Corner: The Sims 3 Pets (PC/Mac)

This week I'm loving The Sims 3 most recent expansion pack - Pets. I've been waiting for this one for so long, for the first time ever you can own playable cats, dogs and horses as well as a bunch of non-playable small animals like tortoise, lizard, snake etc.

I'm never really disappointed with The Sims as it can always keep me occupied for hours on end. This particular game is a little glitchy at the moment as they never tested it with a Beta before release. I've had these things which are being dubbed "melty animals" where the pets will suddenly be all stretched out and on two legs and wander around looking like the creepiest thing you've ever seen. Hopefully they'll bring out a patch to fix all the glitches soon.

It's a lot of fun being able to play the animals now, although it adds quite a bit of extra hard work to the game. If you're a Simfanatic then you'll love the new element and challenges it brings! I was also pleasantly surprised at the amount of new furniture and items that comes with this expansion!

Overall I'd definitely say that this is a must-have expansion pack for The Sims 3! If you only buy one, it should definitely be this one.

Rating: ***** (5/5)

Have you played this game? Is there a particular game you'd like to see me review? Please let me know as I'd love to write about what interests you guys too! :)

  7. Yeah I'm really struggling, every time I sit down at my computer to do some research I always get sidetracked into "just playing for 5 minutes", which of course always turns into hours.... :) xxxx
