    This game could have been fun if not for the game breaking save bug that keeps you from saving. After losing several hours of progress - a number of times - I am ready to throw in the towel.

    If you must play this I recommend purchasing used, and not bothering with the Sims Exchange which is worthless on console anyway.

    The graphics and audio are weak, but the core gameplay is still as solid as ever. There may be a lack of innovation to justify buying both The Sims 3 and this glorified expansion pack though.

    The Sims 3: Pets is very recommendable if you're a true animal lover or new to the series.

    It's moreish, even if it doesn't scratch the deepest of gaming itches. [Issue#212, p.99]
