I was very excited when I accidentally came across this title. I enjoy life sims and couldn't wait to play with all the cute animals. However, I seem to spend more time watering and caring for plants and environment then I do playing with the animals. Very misleading, there are better "plant" games out there, I wanted this to be an "animal" game. It's a good thing I only rented it, because I would never spend real cash on this boring slow game. NOT recommended.
I think that this game is an interesting concept. It is a little bit like Zoo Tycoon for PC, instead you have a little more control over every thing.
Make a suitable enviroment for animals to wander on the premises and live there. It was fun to be able to name the animals and such, and the diversity of species was satisfying. I think that this game is good for younger kids however, but is very entertaining for long trips and waiting in lines.
Overall it was entertaing, and possibly good for a little older kids (I'm 13) and fun for long trips.

When you think Sims, my first thought is, your able to control the animals, but that's not the case here. What you control are the trees and plants. I find it challenging to try to water plants and replant them, while at the same time I have to take care of the animals needs in order for them to stay. I gave this game a 5/10. Only cause it's not what I thought. When the animal makes it's home and it's tired it will some times sleep on the ground near it's home which I don't get. The game also doesn't help you on how to bring a certain animal or how to keep it there. Yes it makes you guess but it would be nice to have a help button. If you like the challenge of this kind of game go for it. Otherwise I would suggest not to get this game. It's not what I thought a Sims game would be.
