Basically, it’s a Sims game. I think it’s well put together, easy to control and geared for players that enjoy making up their own fun. It has a little more focus this time out thanks to the mysteries you can solve, but I didn’t find the addition of pets to be all that thrilling. The voice command feature could be completely absent as far as I’m concerned, and I’m not sure that the additional content featured here is worth another $50 for console owners. I’d definitely suggest renting before you buy, but I enjoyed it enough that I’m sure I’ll revisit it again in the future.
