I give this game the props! I have heard of this for so long and my daughter has been bugging me to buy the Sims 2 Pets but never budged in until I just decided to give it a try. I started with the base of the game which is The SIMS 2 and then I haven't stopped until now! I have collected every expansion pack and "stuff" collection of this game and have been active downloading clothings, furnitures, houses...you name it! I have been SIMS-tized!!!
The only thing that bothers me on the game is the "woohoo" part =) But I guess, that thing makes the game more interesting and realistic in a sense.
The game is colorful and in 3D. They don't have this funny looking faces. You can actually modify them to look as close as they can get to be human. I enjoy the dressing part because I get to don fashionable outfits for my SIMS.
The whole game is a simulated world of families or individuals you created. They progress in their SIMs life with your help and have goals to meet, needs to satisfy, dreams to fulfill, social-status to maintain just like us humans.
I will certainly play this game as long as I can and whenever there is a new expansion pack out. Cool game...
