Pets is a subtitle to next expansion of the third part of the popular series The Sims. As the name suggests, this expansion introduces to the game the best, four-legged friends of man, for example: dogs, cats, and even horses.
Obviously, it is not the first time where four-legged friends appear in the popular series (we had The Sims 2: Pets and The Sims: Pet Stories), but this time the creator give the players new kinds of experience in communing with animals. For the first time we can literally put ourselves in dog or cat body, and explore the world through their eyes. And it opens a lot of possibilities for example: chasing other pets, digging holes to find bones, turning our owner’s apartment in hell or ruining his date.
The players can create their own pet, choosing from over hundreds of available breeds of cats and dogs like the Australian Shepherd and Maine Coon. They can also exchange them with friends or cross their pets with other breeds and create a completely breed.
In the game appeared new locations directly associated with animals, for example dog parks, feline’s jungle or ranches, where you can take care of the horses. Our Sim is able to teach his pet a variety of useful skills such as hunting or finding different items (dogs), or racing and jumping over obstacles (horses). Of course, it is one condition – your pet should not be nervous or unintelligent, but it can still happen. Everything depends on player’s attitude toward the pet and its proper upbringing.
A limited version of the game provides pets’ owners a lot of bonuses. The players can visit a special shop for pets, where they can meet their neighbors or get new items.
