Overall, The Sims 3: Pets is a fantastic addition to the franchise and easily the most enjoyable thus far. It’s a shame the console versions don’t include cool features like creating and maintaining horses and minor animals like snakes, lizards and birds. Either way, if you’re a huge Sims fan, chances are you’ll end up purchasing the PC version anyway. For newcomers of the series, or gamers looking to have a very similar experience on their console, you won’t be disappointed. The lower price point on consoles is certainly welcomed, but some may feel even $50 for an expansion is a little much. Just know that once you pick up The Sims 3: Pets, you’ll quickly become attached and end up spending a lot more time than you’d expect. Which is always a good thing.
