The Sims 3 is the latest installment of the Sims game series. The Sims is a casual game where life is simulated and players are able to create characters and decide the day to day choices of those characters. The Sims 3 expanded on this basic game design adding new objectives, goals and game modes. Now, there are even pets to create and play with.

The Sims 3 for the 3DS allows you to create a character. In the character creation mode, Create a Sim, players can choose all of the different attributes to their sim. For example, they can change their body type, hair color and hair style. Players can even change their outfits. Along with the physical appearance of the sim, players can also decide certain traits and desires for their character. This feature is expanded upon in the actual gameplay.

In The Sims 3: Pets edition, players can also create and play with new pets. There are many new different animals to chose from. In previous Sims Pets games, selections were limited to normal domestic animals, like cats and dogs. In this version of the game, the selection has broadened. Now, players can choose from cats, dogs, horses, birds, snakes, lizards and turtles. In the character creation mode, players can choose different attributes to the animal. This includes, body type, coat color and texture, breed, facial features, and tail length and size. The player can even mix breeds to have the physical appearance of two breeds of the same animal. The player also chooses traits for the animal, and similarly to human sims, these are important for actual gameplay.

Playing the game is similar to other versions of The Sims 3. Players are able to choose the actions of each of their characters. They can toggle to the different sims to control each one. This includes pets. Now, every character has wants and needs that need to be fulfilled and the player is rewarded for completing wants. Some common wants include eating a specific food, interacting with another character, gaining new skills and visiting new places.

Another element to the game is gaining new skills. All sims can gain new skills in different areas. For human sims, they can learn logic skills, computer skills, cooking skills, and creative skills. Unlike earlier versions of The Sims, some skills are related to specific objects. For example, a sim can gain skill in playing the guitar or playing the piano. Animal sims are also able to gain skills. For dogs and cats, there are collecting skills and hunting skills. Horses can also gain racing skills.

The Sims 3: Pets for the 3DS is a fun game for families. While there are some adult themed interactions, everything is tastefully handled and censored. However, The Sims 3: Pets, and other Sims 3 titles, are better suited for young teens and adults. With the ability to create characters, decorate rooms, and make new pets for their sims, this game is perfect for animal lovers.
