    I have all the Sims like Sims Bustin' Out, Sims Urbz,Sims 2 and Sims 2 Pets I think Bustin' out was the best because you get a canr and you get to go disc dancing! But Sims 2 pets is so cool I think 10/10

    This game is absoulutely amazing and would recommend it to anyone who luvs pets, the dogs have Puppie and tell you what the labrador and beagle puppies are so cute! Kittens are okay but im into dogs. The amount of new stuff is a bit low but that makes up whan you see how realistic the dogs and cats are, gerbils are good but if they run away and you have a dog bye bye gerbil.

    A truly amazing and enjoyable game! It's about time they brought out a pet game for the sims.

    Great game but it needs more locations. I liked the fact that it is clean and there is nothing dirty on the game thank you for making the game better!

    It looks nice, plays nice, but it's a far too expensive for what it's worth.

    This game gets old easily unless you're a pet lover in reality. As a non-pet-lover, it's difficult to know what to do with your pets, even more difficult when it is you and your pets combined. Pet lovers will love this game though.

    Sims 2 Pets is a good game, with lots of fun stuff to do, however, most of the fun stuff doesn't feel like it revolves around pets. You cannot control the pets, do much in the way of shaping their personality, and, they just don't feel like a big part of the game. It would also have been nice if they could have included a few more types of pets besides cats and dogs, like birds, rodents,Sims 2 Pets is a good game, with lots of fun stuff to do, however, most of the fun stuff doesn't feel like it revolves around pets.

It would also have been nice if they could have included a few more types of pets besides cats and dogs, like birds, rodents, or perhaps horses. It could also use more locations, since there is pretty much only 1. your house, and 2. the park. Expand

  1. As for the rest of the game, the structure is still the same as before, but for Sims fans, the pet aspect will add plenty of new entertainment to make this worth picking up. [Nov. 2006, p.114]
  2. Whatever EA says, this feels like an expansion pack. It's a welcome one though, and it'll make your little Sim home all the more complete. [Nov 2006, p.82]
  3. The Sims 2: Pets adds some moderately interesting animal companions but offers a surprisingly strong Sims 2 experience.
