The game isn’t without its issues though. In-game sounds are noticeably light perhaps due to space issues, the ‘Free Will’ AI in places often forgets that your Sim has a job to go to, and, unless I’m mistaken, the option to hire Maids, call for a Pizza delivery etc has been entirely removed meaning that there is far more emphasis on the player making sure everything is spick and span which can inevitably be a time consuming frustration. Areas away from your home, whilst large, are too sparsely populated even if they are a welcome change of scenery from your humble abode.
After the misdirection of lacklustre Nintendo 3DS launch offering, EA have provided a far more robust handheld experience. Full of the charm and character that has allowed the series to become such a success, The Sims 3: Pets is well worth the investment of your Simoleons.
