    The design itself lacks focus in both its Sims model as well as its Pet simulation -- it's just so overwhelmingly bland, boring, tedious, and unrewarding that it fails to hold the interest level that the Sims series has been known for.

    When you take on lousy controls that require you to alternate constantly between the Control Pad and buttons and the touch screen, it's clear that The Sims 2 Pets needs a serious check-up. [Jan. 2007, p.116]

    This tries to pull off so much but it's neither as compelling and varied as "The Sims" nor as loveable as "Nintendogs." Plus it's so blocky it's like someone invented an 8-bit DS. [Dec 2006, p.87]

    This game is boring and repetitive if you are a sims fan this will sure be a let down.

    Not at all impressed with this game. The Sims being a big selling product, I thought this game was well worth the £30 I spent on it, Not at all impressed with this game. The Sims being a big selling product, I thought this game was well worth the £30 I spent on it, but very dissapointed with the overall concept. The graphics are not up to scratch (the dogs sometimes look google eyed and ugly!), the game play is very repetitive and there is not much scope to keep on playing the game. Thumbs down for what, with the DS touch screen, could have been excellent but turned out below par Full Review »

    This game is okay I got this at my local games store for 2 bucks because I love the sims. I am not a big fan of the idea of you owning a petThis game is okay I got this at my local games store for 2 bucks because I love the sims. I am not a big fan of the idea of you owning a pet clinic. This game is easy to get used to. Like a lot of DS games this can get a bit boring and bland at times especially when they say there pet smells, that isn't a reason to go to the pet clinic!
