The Sims: Unleashed for Windows PC
Maxis’ life simulation game- aptly titled The Sims- is an icon within the games industry, in no small part for taking the concept of a simulation game based around looking after a digital family, and doing it in such a way that it was both accessible to anyone, yet deep enough for serious simulation fans. As a result a result of it’s popularity, expansion packs were inevitable, with The Sims: Unleashed being the fifth in a rapidly growing line.
The main draw of Unleashed is it’s introduction of a wide range of Pets as a feature into the main game; Cats and Dogs are counted as independent characters in the environment (with the player only able to control their movements), whilst other Pets are counted as objects by the game. The other draw to Unleashed is its expansion of the standard neighbourhood from 10 lots to 40, as well as allowing the player to rezone almost all of them, and to construct other kids of buildings besides houses on them, such as shops, cafes, and a variety of other commercial outlets.
