It is such a shame that this game is so boring and repetitive!

I really hate to have to give this game such a negative review since I love the Sims games,but here it goes! I had heard such wonderful reviews about this game about how much fun it was to play and how people couldn't put this game down,well unfortunately,this wasn't the case for me! I found that while the animals were cute,the game was very repetitive and it was asking you to do the SAME THINGS OVER AND OVER AGAIN!! If that weren't enough,as with the Sims Bustin' Out which is a good game too,this game expected you to socialize with people non stop,and of course you are expected to keep your house clean,get a job,and keep your sims character and your pet(s)happy at all times too!

While I have said this before,I do love the concept of the Sims,and I love controlling my characters lives on these Sims games,the developers of this game NEED TO EASE UP A LITTLE BIT,on the expectations that are put on your Sims Characters! Anotherwords,how can our Sims be truly happy when they have too many things to do and accomplish in a 24 hour day?

I wish that there were more breeds of animals on here of dogs,cats,snakes,rabbits,horses,ferrets,chimpanzees would have been really fun on here! Also,I was VERY DISAPPOINTED that you could only go to either the pet park or just back to your house,BORING!! I mean come on now,there should have been MORE THAN TWO PLACES TO VISIT WITH PEOPLE ON HERE! While the stores are an interesting touch of where you can buy toys and food and shelter for your pets,I think it would have been really cool to have a store where your Sims characters could have shopped for groceries,clothes,jewelry,cars,etc.... I really hope that EA Games,Maxis really STOP AND THINK about how they can make the graphics better on here,have MORE OF A REALISTIC STORYLINE,and how to offer more gameplay without having frustrating controls,weird camera angles,and making the Sims characters do more things in a 24 hour period of time,than we humans are not capable of doing in a 24 hour period of time! I hate to say this,but this game was VERY DISAPPOINTING to me,and as much as it hurts me to do this as an avid Sims game player,I am going to have to give this game two thumbs down! :-(
