I am looking for a game for my wife, and can't really decide between "My Sims" and "The Sims 2: Pets".
On one hand my wife would prefer a cute game with nice graphics, so from the reviews I've read it looks like 'My Sims' is the better choice, since it is usually described as being very cute (or even too cute, which would be fine).
But then (again from reviews) it appears that 'My Sims' has a more structured/linear game play (you get a task, you fulfill it, and then you get another task ... ), and not the more open or unstructured game play 'The Sims' apparently has - and my wife would like that better.
So, to me it's a bit of a puzzle: can "The Sims" be cute, or "My Sims" more unstructured or free? We haven't played any Sims games before, so both games would be new.
Has anyone played both games and can share some thoughts, or compare them? Any comments appreciated!
Thanks a lot !
