  1. Despite some poor load times, this is a highly playable and seriously addictive game. [Feb 2007, p.80]
  2. Even with its lack of storyline and focused goals, the micro-mangement gameplay is as insidious as it is familiar. [Mar 2007, p.116]
  3. Pets is an impressive The Sims 2 expansion pack transferred nicely to the PSP but really long load times and its repetitive nature might not sit well with everyone even true fans.
  4. The near crippling PSP only feature: an abundance of loading. Players of The Sims 2 Pets on the PSP will have to suffer 3-4 seconds of loading almost every time they open a menu or attempt to interact with something in the game.
  5. The Sims 2: Pets for the PSP might have been a decent port of the console versions, if it would've just stopped loading for a second.
  6. For the PSP this should have been a set of downloads and not another game to purchase, for what is essentially a few updates, a little graphic polishes and some pets!
  7. A capable game destroyed by inexcusable loading. Heavy petting has rarely been less appealing.
  8. 40
    If this is the best example of the PSP’s capabilities, the developers are better off making a different game because the load times/screens make the game lose portable appeal and a lot of functionality as a game in general.
  9. When you get down to the bones of The Sims 2: Pets you can see a good game there, it just gets bogged down by literally the worst loading we've seen in a PSP game ever.
