    Quite fun at first but you will get tired of it rather soon. Not worth buying.

    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.

    It's a great game, but not as great as I expected. I was expecting more breeds and pet stuff. That was the down side, other than that it was great! I set my graphics on high because the low graphics annoy me with how you can't see any detail; so the graphics are great in my game. (PC)

    The game starts off really fun, but very quickly becomes boring, repetitive and unrewarding. I very quickly got to the highest level, after which there is nothing left to achieve but to keep on going.

    It is very hard to keep their stats high when you play on a game console. The games on the computer are much easier to play. More user friendly. The game is still fun however. :)

    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]

    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]
