Product Description

Product Description

The addition of a new friend is guaranteed to enrich the daily lives of your Sims! Not only will players have the opportunity to choose from a variety of existing breeds, and hot designer mixes, but they`ll also be able to personally design their new friend with the Create-a-Pet feature. The ability to customise gives fans the opportunity to create their ideal pet by choosing their body shape, unique markings, even their pet`s personalities! With so many different animals to choose from, there`s no telling what unpredictable experiences could occur!

Players will also be able to teach their pet new tricks, take them for a romp in the park, outfit them with new pet accessories and even give them a job! As in real life, your Sims` pet will require care and training. A neglected cat with an urge to scratch might claw up your new couch if you aren`t careful, and leaving your dog unattended near a freshly planted flower bed probably isn`t wise!
 

  • Sims Have New Friends - Pets! Sims can share their lives with their new pets and add more fun to the Sims experience. From dogs, cats, caged animals and more, your Sims share new friends to experience life`s precious moments. With so many different animals to choose from, there`s no telling what unpredictable experiences could occur!
  • Create-A-Pet: Choose from dozens of dog and cat breeds or customize features for a one-of-a-kind pet. You can even modify your pet`s body shape by choosing from specific colours and unique markings. Don`t like the way they act? Change their personality from smart and sweet to silly and sloppy anyone can create their ideal animal friend in The Sims 2 Pets.
    "Sit, Spike, Site: Your Sims can encourage and discipline pets, training them to shake, roll over, play dead, and more. Unruly pets might dig in the yard, claw the sofa, or topple the trash. Thankfully, a little training can go a long way.

Amazon.co.uk Review

In a nutshell:
The PC and console worlds combine thanks to man’s best friend and a mouse’s greatest enemy. Create, pamper and train your favoured furry companions in the latest The Sims 2 expansion.

The lowdown:
After years of trying to create less complex, mini-game orientated spin-offs it seems EA are now keen to see the PC and console The Sims games converge. This new iteration is an expansion pack on the PC but a full price, stand alone game on the consoles. As the name subtly hints the main addition to the game this time round is a number of four-legged friends, plus fish and birds (although it’s really cats and dogs that get most of the attention). You can also create your own personalised pet via a complex customisation tool that’s just as versatile as the one for humans and on the PC version you can even send your four-legged friend to work!

Most exciting moment:
On the PC this is a perfectly welcome but very narrow expansion. However the full price console version is actually a considerable improvement on the original with an easier-to-use interface, better artificial intelligence and even reduced loading times.

Since you ask:
The next PC expansion pack is called In Season and seems to be roughly analogous to The Sims expansion On Holiday, in that it’ll focus on exterior objects and locations. It’s not yet clear whether there’ll be a console version.

The bottom line:
Finally, The Sims is made to work on consoles!-HARRISON DENT

2.0 out of 5 stars My First Game...*sigh* 17 April 2010
By Mwah xx
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
This was my very first DS game - it came with my DS. I was so excited, I'd never been on a DS before, not even a friend's or my sister's. I was let down.
The most fun part of the game is the first bit where you design your character and your pet. Since this part was quite fun, I thought the rest of the game would be fun. But it's not. The graphics are awful, they're quite scratchy and a bit blurry. I will admit that the controls are very easy to use and make the game smooth running, but the actual game itself is really rubbish. The owners come with their pets, and I got to the customer straight away and she still complained about my lateness.
You have to check the pets over with the medical instruments and this gets tiring because each time you have to give them food to check if they have worms. You have to buy the food so you waste your food if they don't have worms. Also, if your stylus accidentally leaves the screen then comes back whilst you're stroking the pet, it thinks you're poking it so it's 'love' meter goes down.
This is another disadvantage to the game. The love meter goes down so easily. You have to brush the pet when diagnosing to check for fleas and this makes the love meter go down very much. It also goes down loads when you wash the pet. You have to buy very expensive accessories to make the pet's appearance meter go up and this costs loads and wastes your money. If you don't do this, you don't get paid as much money (as a bonus).
Basically, all you do in the game is waste money on things you don't even need so that you have none left to spend for yourself (like on furniture, ingredients for recipes etc.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sims 2 Pets DS 29 Oct 2006
Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Very disapointing, you can only go in your house or to a deserted park.No town to visit or people to meet, only clients. I have looked forward to this thinking it would be like Urbz or Sims In The City, but it's not.I can't wait for PSP version where you can visit town and meet people.

4.0 out of 5 stars its my only sims but its not bad 28 July 2009
A Kid's Review
I'm Katie (aged 10). I got Sims Pets for my 10th birthday. I've played on it for days and I still haven't got bored with it. As I found out with my first account, you have to be careful and not spend your money too quickly (as you might end up not looking after the pets properly). You can take your pets for a walk, train them (which is fun). You can have your own pet, design it, dress it or make up a new breed. For my doctors, I have Doctor Seuss and Doctor Doctor, although you can have a third.
You have to look after the pets well or you don't get paid anything. All in all, a pretty good game.

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
EA have sunk to the lowest of the low this time by cocking this game up. It did have potential, Sims 2 WITH PETS FOR THE DS. Nothing can get better than this.

After playing the game, I thought for a moment and concluded: Nothing can get worse than this. Granted Nintendo have dug themselves a massive hole by letting in Shovelware, but this game dosent take the biscuit, it takes the whole damn plate.

The graphics are awful beyond recongition and sanity, Even with the Playstation 1, who arguably had around the graphic capability back in 1995, (Ten bloody years before this game was out!) could have easily topped this and that was a decade old console. The colours are bland and uninspiring. Granted however I still play my Sega Genesis and Playstation 1 games, I was pretty ready to forgive it for the flawed graphics. What I wasent prepared for was, however, it's abhorrent gameplay.

Gameplay in the world of games can easily outshine graphics (often) controls, but this one fails at every hurdle. Imagine what if you were a vet, speaking they pretty alienating Sim language cooking the set meals, and dressing how EA wants to hammers it in. Now add a house, confusing and infuriating control system and a horrible linear pattern of looking after the pets.

I swear that the system is on a cycle, as people seem to come back to me with the same names, (which are utterly absurd, bare in mind) with the same pets... with, lo and behold, the exact same problem. Now, twice perhaps on very little I can understand, a flaw in the engine, but time after time is ridiculous. Once you did your thing with the pets, you sent it back, hoping you would never see them again. But you do, again and again! What the heck!?

Overall, a disgrace to EA, a hashed, shovelware game that should be "shoved" into a bin liner, unless of course playing repetitive, disgraceful flawed shoddy games are to your liking.

3.0 out of 5 stars Repetitive. 4 May 2009
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Judging by the front cover of the game, I thought the pets were going to be really life like, the pets would be up to mischief, running havoc everywhere, but no.
The pets don't casue any trouble to be honest, they don't scratch at the furniture or chew anything up, this is all very stupid as in reality, pets just don't do that, they chew things up, they mess in the house and scratch at your funiture, so there goes the reality of the game.
Also, the graphics are actually terribly amusing! If your pets in real life have sharp angles then I think this game represents them then! To be honest, what I am trying to say is the pets are no where near as real looking as your nintendogs, which lets face it, is what people want, to have pets looking like real pets.
Curing the customers pets I find very boring, great after about 5 times, boring from then on.
You get to make your own pet at the start of the game, you can play with it, and teach it tricks, teaching it tricks is pretty simple, they can learn all the tricks in the space of about 5 mins.
Playing with the pet is equally boring, throw the ball, yeah it looks at it, brings it back a couple of times, then you see the energy of the pet decrease and it refuses to play anymore.
Taking the pets to the park might sound exciting, yep it is after about 2 visits it then AGAIN starts to get boring, (I gues you understand what I am gonna say at th end of this review now don't you?!) The park to be honest isn't the most relaistic of parks, not many sims there, except a few, not many pets, looks like they have spend about 30 seconds designing the park and have taken no thought or time to make it look better and to provide it with better facilities.
So overall, yes the game is fun but playing it all the time is a no-no.
