I do not recommend owning pets in The Urbz and Bustin' Out as they are just mess makers and are not fun to have at all (except to watch the monkey butler clean up their mess). In this game, of course, you are forced to own a pet but there is a purpose. You teach your pet tricks to compete in competition. These competitions consist of timing games (like the guitar game in Bustin' Out). Certain keys (Left, Right, arrow keys, `A', `B') move up the screen and you have to press them at the right time. The more difficult tricks your pet learns (flips, yoga, fire breathing), the more challenging the timing as you may have to hold one key down with one hand while pressing a tricky combination of keys with the other, etc.). Before competing, you need to "teach" your pet the trick by repeating commands and praising or scolding the pet appropriately. There are only 4 jobs. One is the competitions, the others are walking animals, destroying fleas and other nasties at the vet clinic, and parapsychology (a strange and challenging game) at the cemetery. Unlike other Sims games, you advance by amassing a certain amount of earnings, so you don't have to be super good at anything to advance, but the jobs--except parapsych--are not difficult.
The communication style is different again. Here, icons move across the screen and you choose one.Read more ›
What was so majorly disappointing to me on this game is the lack of consideration to the previous games. All your familiar (and favorite) characters are gone: Dusty Hogg, Misty Waters, Daddy Bigbucks, and so on. There is no fun type plot to this game like in Urbz or Sims 2 but to teach your pet tricks and win competitions. You also only have a few "jobs" but they are not even HALF as fun as the mini games in the other two.
The only good thing I found with this game is the opportunity to have a pet but I would rather stick to Nintendogs than buy this again. And since your pet is the sole purpose of the game (besides little things here and there) you'd think you'd have some sort of relationship points with the animal. No.
Worst of all is the conversations with other Sims! It is like guessing pictures and has NO CHARACTER whatsoever! No funny jokes or whimsical insights into that sims mind.
I am VERY unhappy with this game.
about the game: i had this game when i was little! i think i got this at the same time i got my gameboy, but i sold it when i got my ds. i recently got into collecting old nintendo handhelds, and since i loved this game when i was little, i decided to buy it again.
now, although i loved this when i was little, i had no clue how to play it. it's a lot easier to play it now, because i get it, but it doesn't explain a whole lot, so it might not be a great idea for younger kids.
some tips: -press b to get out of socializing with someone (you don't have to sit there talking until your sim pees its pants)
-don't get a pet right away. make money first so you don't get everything repoed the first month because you can't make payments
-use the easel to paint things for money and to level up creativity. once you're at level 10 you start to make thousands a painting
overall, love the game! but it's repetitive, much like the sims on other consoles.
