The Sims 3: Pets is a more complete game that its predecessor. The console version is not nearly as big a jump in iterations — it is more of an expansion pack than a brand new game. The 3DS version on the other hand, fixes several errors and problems that plagued the last title, adds new content including pets, and it also uses the 3DS controls to their fullest. For as complex as the PC controls are, the 3DS does a solid job of porting them over. They are still slightly confined due to the nature of the device, but The Sims 3: Pets uses the buttons — and especially the touchpad — exceedingly well.
