The game is good for about 3 days. The problem is that there just isn't enough options when building the house and after you get to the top level of your job there is nothing else to do. I did find that the mood went down fast but its not hard to keep it up. Overall it is worth playing for a long weekend but thats about it.

For die hard Sims fans, it's enough to make them happy. But overall I wasn't too impressed. Obviously this title appeals mostly to cat/dog lovers. I didn't rent it because it had a puppy on the cover, I got it because I hadn't played a Sims game in a long time. Although I've played other Sims games recently, they were all failures (Urbz) of set story paths and not enough 'living' that the franchise made fun. So I was happy to see a Wii Sims game that was like the CPU games I had grown to love. But of course one problem is, there isn't much to play for unless you set your own goals. I set a high goal of having a big house, lots of money, maxed stats, and lots of (female) roommates. If you noticed, I didn't say anything about having a faithful companion, because really I didn't want one. As I tried to build my character to the top job, pets were just a big hassle. Although, I always hated having to have friends for your job promotions, so having pets gave you a great out for that reason, every pet you have counts as a friend. Also you can be one of those crazy cat ladies and use your pets for the socializing need. The controls were good, more or less, not hard to use but not amazingly intuitive.
Overall, the lack of items to customize your house is a minus. You can't build two story houses either. But, if you're in it to have some cute and fluffy friends, this game is perfect for you. Even though after a while the game play will get old.
