    It's a great game, once you get into it the graphics aren't that noticeable. It isn't a true sims game, but thats what makes it unique!

    Fun and inventive. Totally safe for my kid, who is enjoying playing a veterinarian.

    Pretty good game! Surprised by all the fuss. This is a game that has heart and is fun. Maybe the reviewers don't like it because in the game you don't kill people. Hey not all games can be about zombies!

    It was a fun game. I love the sims but after a while, it got booring. It was an easy game.

    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]
