Features

The Sims Pet Stories challenges Sims to care for and train pets, similar to The Sims 2: Pets. Much like its predecessor, this game is optimized for laptops and features both story and free play modes. Players can also raise and train pets in the game like The Sims 2.

In this game, two new stories are introduced, Best in Show and Midnight Masquerade. The first story features Alice, a woman who faces financial problems and is about to lose her home. So she enters her pet Dalmatian into a local dog show to try to earn enough money to save her house. The second story is about a successful executive chef named Stephen, whose world is turned upside down when an obnoxious cat comes to live with him.

There is a neutral town titled Arbor Falls, where you can play in Free Mode, and you do not have to follow a story line. In Free Mode, you can play as you can in regular sims. You can raise a family, buy pets, go out, and date.

As with the other titles in the Sims Stories series, Pet Stories is designed around the bare bones of the base Sims 2 game engine, making it more optimized for Laptops and low end computers. By default, the title plays in Windowed mode, but can be changed to play in regular full screen. It also features a battery bar to show how much battery you have left, if playing on a laptop.

Reception

As with the other two titles in the series, Pet Stories received mixed to positive reception.
