The Sims 2 Pets Expansion Pack (PC) [Electronic Arts - $24.99 at Amazon]
There are plenty of gamers looking for something a little less frantic than war games and shmups, and what better way to celebrate the holidays than to, say, buy a new kitty cat for the one you love? What’s even better is that a SimKitty won’t give you hives, or rip your curtains apart, or breed with a stray, though the same can’t necessarily be said for your poor SimOwners. Pets is a worthy Sims 2 expansion pack, one that takes an awful lot of time in figuring out how to make time for the new inhabitants of your SimHome. Just, whatever you do, don’t kick your chihuahua. You may think it’ll make you feel better, but it doesn’t. [Amazon]
