    So this is still a DLC right? Then why the hell is it $39.99?! Thats $10 more than the original game.... Why should you have to pay more for something that could have been added to the game in the first place, and pay more than the original game. EA needs to serioulsy check themselves.

    I've been a fan of The Sims for over a decade, and this flavor of expansion has always been my favorite. While fun, it certainly does not excuse the cost; it's priced like a full game, called an expansion, and has the content of a $15 DLC. I'd highly recommend only buying this game on sale or when the price drops because, other than the price, pets in The Sims are really fun.

    The animals reverse...like a car. Sadly I don't think they put enough effort into it - their trailers were misleading and the general gameplay addition was lacking. They could've done a lot more.

    The best add-on for The Sims 3 so far. Pets bring a lot of extra playability. Pet lovers hardly find anything better to play. Unicorn included! [Dec 2011]

    The most detailed Pets expansion for the series. Horses, in particular, are an exciting inclusion. [Jan 2012, p.60]

    Horses and controllable cats and dogs give The Sims 3: Pets a good deal of heart.
