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

    I thought it would be way better as i love sims, but since it is on DS it feels limited. After you've done the goals, the rest is boring.

    Not only is this a waste of money and a let down of a game but it also has a glitch on the ds, as you check on the cat/dog at pionts in the game depending on the speed of the game you will one-get a black flash across the screen two-the games dies and all you can do is hit the power button (this has happen at least ten times).

    There is little to do in this Sims game that is even a little interesting. This is one of the least enjoyable Sims because of a lack of content. I recommend the Sims 2 for PSP more than this.

    It's a game to simply laugh at. It's just absolute trash. This shows EA is just a bad company.

    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]
