This manual goes into some detail the various characteristics of the horses, cats, dogs, unicorns and small animals that are included in the Sims 3 Pets game.
There is this a small amount of duplication, as it discusses cats separately from dogs, and there is a lot of common ground between the two.
You should buy this book if you want to know how playing horses especially, with its career structure, more obvious, and how to attract a unicorn. However, I do not think that it is essential to buy this manual compared to the purchase of the "World Vacations" manual was to get the best out of the game. Nevertheless, it is a good read.
This is perfect for reading up on the little things that you don't know are their when you play the game, and the guide for making unique pets is fantastic as i always struggle to get to grips with the different layers of fur and markings when making pets. I often find myself reading the book instead of playing the game lol
Had to wait a couple of months to get this as my old laptop crashed everytime I tried to play Sims. It arrived quickly and is a great expansion. I have every expansion and this is definitly one of my favouite. It is a hundred times better then Sims 2 pets and definitly worth having for all you Simmers out there.
