  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. A capable game destroyed by inexcusable loading. Heavy petting has rarely been less appealing.
  4. 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!
  5. 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.

    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.
  7. Even with its lack of storyline and focused goals, the micro-mangement gameplay is as insidious as it is familiar. [Mar 2007, p.116]
  8. 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.
  9. Despite some poor load times, this is a highly playable and seriously addictive game. [Feb 2007, p.80]
