  1. Dogs and cats to play with plus a load of other animals and a small business and a house... Hours of fun for animal-kids. [Dec 2008, p.66]
  2. Gamers, especially young gamers, who like Sims, enjoy playing with digital pets, and don’t mind repetition might still enjoy this one, though.
  3. The Sims 2: Apartment Pets is fairly engaging for a few hours, but unfortunately it becomes stale very quickly as the Sim character itself requires far too little attention. A great concept, but owing to the awkward controls and the lack of care needed for the Sim, there’s just too much monotony.
  4. Very easy to pick up and play, but once you know your way around it there’s nothing left to discover. Tedious.
  5. Apartment Pets lacks diversity, complexity and something that encourages us to keep caring for the – somewhat – cute animals.
  6. 45
    The Sims 2: Apartment Pets' charm wears off very quickly.
  7. This may sound like a lot of customization, but every gameplay element is embarrassingly shallow.

    Don't play this. There is so little content on this DS cartridge that it a large money waster. Not even the biggest Sims fans will be amused.
