SimAnimals is a solid simulation for kids. There are a lot of engaging gameplay possibilities here, the difficulty is low, and the controls are simple. The package lacks personality, but it’s easy to get caught up in the day-do-day tasks of nourishing your forest. After the Wii game turned out so shoddy, it’s nice to find a good version here on the DS.

IGN’s rating?  A decent score of 7.3!
