Product Description Review

In a nutshell:
The PC and console worlds combine thanks to man’s best friend and a mouse’s greatest enemy. Create, pamper and train your favoured furry companions in the latest The Sims 2 expansion.

The lowdown:
After years of trying to create less complex, mini-game orientated spin-offs it seems EA are now keen to see the PC and console The Sims games converge. This new iteration is an expansion pack on the PC but a full price, stand alone game on the consoles. As the name subtly hints the main addition to the game this time round is a number of four-legged friends, plus fish and birds (although it’s really cats and dogs that get most of the attention). You can also create your own personalised pet via a complex customisation tool that’s just as versatile as the one for humans and on the PC version you can even send your four-legged friend to work!

Most exciting moment:
On the PC this is a perfectly welcome but very narrow expansion. However the full price console version is actually a considerable improvement on the original with an easier-to-use interface, better artificial intelligence and even reduced loading times.

Since you ask:
The next PC expansion pack is called In Season and seems to be roughly analogous to The Sims expansion On Holiday, in that it’ll focus on exterior objects and locations. It’s not yet clear whether there’ll be a console version.

The bottom line:
Finally, The Sims is made to work on consoles!-HARRISON DENT

Not since the University pack have I been as pleased to spend £18 on a Sims 2 Expansion pack. It's so wonderful in fact that I'm putting up with the red flashing walls (which i had experienced with those little item expansion packs, but didnt think i would with the main ones).

(Ive tried to upgrade the video driver online, as the instruction book told me to, but no luck. It doesnt matter though, you dont notice it after a while.)

The pack itself is fantastic though. The pets are absolutely adoreable and breeding them is loads of fun to - the puppies and kittens are absolutely adoreable and its interesting to see how they turn out compared to each parent.

I love how you have to train the pets with positive and negative reinforcement, just like in real life, rather than simply being able to control what they do (eg if they pee on the floor or chew the furnature, sims can approach them and 'praise' or 'scold' them for their behaviour, which influences how they behave in the future), as well as being able to tach them tricks that are not only funny and cute but useful too. Often they need certain tricks if they are to be promoted in their job.

Sims pets can now have careers! Ive only tried this out with dogs, not sure if cats can have jobs too, but dogs can choose from careers in the police, security or showbusiness careers, and often they need skills (as sims do), but in their case tricks, to be promoted.

I'm glad i pre-ordered this game, its lots of fun, and as usual is annoyingly addictive so that you're kept playing for hours at a time.

I'll eventually get my video card updated, if that is what is causing the walls to flash, but my computer's just returned from the shop where i paid a lot of money for other problems, so the graphics is at the bottom of the priority list at the moment. But be prepared to have the flashing walls. Eventually you wont notice them, as the game is so fun.

I like most simmers was chomping at the bit for this EP to be released, I've had it now just over a week and yes, the pets make it a great new exciting experience.

You can choose in dogs from a huge selection of breeds from Great Dane to Chihuaiua or whatever they're called meaning you have two sizes of dogs, the little itty bitty handbag dogs to huge guardians. (only problem is you can't do a Paris with them and carry the little ones around unless they're puppies which is a let down)

Cats there is a wide selection too from fluffy persians to slinky siamese.

The new objects are mostly to do with the pets bar a few new building tools, but they are pretty nice all the same. Oh and like the vampire addition in Nightlife, here you can become a werewolf by befriending the evil glowy eyed black shuck type dog that turns up on your doorstep every so often.

Only problem is if you use add-ons from the community a lot of them do not work now including many that we have come to depend on!

The game itself is a bit buggy, I had to lose all my hard-worked sims to actually play the game as it duplicated every sim on installation rendering it unusable!

But once the patch comes out and users have updated their files it sets out to do exactly what we were so excited about in the first place... a fantastic addition to the sims, and its all worth it just to see a toddler cuddle a huge mutt!!

I have purchased Sims 2, nightlife, university, open for pets, glamour and pets. I am only twelve but my view has changed since I first played.
When I first installed I had a little trouble and the sim 2 would not fit on my screen properly. I had to teach myself everything from the manual. But now I have a great fitting screen and everything works. Remember to always install sims 2 first, you don't want to put on the expansion packs on first, to realise you can't play it.

The game has recieved great reviews because of it's high graphics and it also makes you work hard mentally. Many sims and have fun, this is the way to enjoy it. A full worth while reason to spend money, suitable for seven years of age and over. Some expansion packs are a little too protective such as nightlife and university (12+) , but nothing has really changed, everything really suitable and I still would rate this 7+.

All in all, if you are looking for a game to keep your kids captivated and having fun, this is for you. Don't worry about price, well worth your money, and maybe read the manual once or twice before installing. Oh and one other thing, always keep your manuals! If you ever need to reinstall something then you will be asked for the manual code, don't worry... It's not too technical. My mum was able to do it and she knows nothing about computers!
But this is a kids review and you probably don't listen to me,
But I have enjoyed this.
And always read reviews, they help you alot.

I could not wait for this to come out, and when it finally did there was no disappointment. Sims 2 has got better and better but this just adds a little something more to the cycle ! Its an excellant game and will keep yuor eyes glued to the screen ! But it is one of those expansion pack where after a long time you still don't get bored of. I would strongly recommend it to Sims 2 Fans.
