Product Description

The Sims 2: Pets gives your Sims the chance to raise & care for a pet! Choose from a variety of existing breeds, and hot designer mixes, but they'll also be able to personally design their new friend. Teach them 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. With so many different animals to choose from, there's no telling what could occur!

I just finished Sims2 Pets for Game Boy Advance (well, I won the final competition but the game tells me it's only 96% completed; I'm not sure what else to do) so it's time to review. I can't get enough Sims games for gba. Since Pets is a Sims game, I enjoyed it but not as much as I enjoyed The Urbz, Bustin' Out, and Sims 2. The following is how I compare Pets to the other Sims games.

I do not recommend owning pets in The Urbz and Bustin' Out as they are just mess makers and are not fun to have at all (except to watch the monkey butler clean up their mess). In this game, of course, you are forced to own a pet but there is a purpose. You teach your pet tricks to compete in competition. These competitions consist of timing games (like the guitar game in Bustin' Out). Certain keys (Left, Right, arrow keys, `A', `B') move up the screen and you have to press them at the right time. The more difficult tricks your pet learns (flips, yoga, fire breathing), the more challenging the timing as you may have to hold one key down with one hand while pressing a tricky combination of keys with the other, etc.). Before competing, you need to "teach" your pet the trick by repeating commands and praising or scolding the pet appropriately. There are only 4 jobs. One is the competitions, the others are walking animals, destroying fleas and other nasties at the vet clinic, and parapsychology (a strange and challenging game) at the cemetery. Unlike other Sims games, you advance by amassing a certain amount of earnings, so you don't have to be super good at anything to advance, but the jobs--except parapsych--are not difficult.

The communication style is different again. Here, icons move across the screen and you choose one.

I am an AVID Sim player. Any form of the game that I can get I will. I have the The Sims Bustin Out, Urbz, and Sims 2 on the game boy advance system. Naturally I was estatic about this game being released since I am also a pet lover.

What was so majorly disappointing to me on this game is the lack of consideration to the previous games. All your familiar (and favorite) characters are gone: Dusty Hogg, Misty Waters, Daddy Bigbucks, and so on. There is no fun type plot to this game like in Urbz or Sims 2 but to teach your pet tricks and win competitions. You also only have a few "jobs" but they are not even HALF as fun as the mini games in the other two.

The only good thing I found with this game is the opportunity to have a pet but I would rather stick to Nintendogs than buy this again. And since your pet is the sole purpose of the game (besides little things here and there) you'd think you'd have some sort of relationship points with the animal. No.

Worst of all is the conversations with other Sims! It is like guessing pictures and has NO CHARACTER whatsoever! No funny jokes or whimsical insights into that sims mind.

I am VERY unhappy with this game.

After having purchased the previous Sims games for Game Boy Advance, I was eagerly looking forward to this game, wondering what they could do with it. Don't expect the narratives and tasks that came with the previous games -- this is more like the PC version of The Sims, only without the creativity. If you have a choice between this version and the PC version, pass on this one and head straight to the computer -- it's more fun.

My daughter brought this game wanting to play with cats. After reviewing people's comments about this game and other game - We're pleased to say this was my daughter's favorite. My daughter and my niece have sat down together and took turns a lot. HIGHLY recommend for pre-teen girls.

about my seller: they were great. game came in in great condition and was packaged neatly.
about the game: i had this game when i was little! i think i got this at the same time i got my gameboy, but i sold it when i got my ds. i recently got into collecting old nintendo handhelds, and since i loved this game when i was little, i decided to buy it again.
now, although i loved this when i was little, i had no clue how to play it. it's a lot easier to play it now, because i get it, but it doesn't explain a whole lot, so it might not be a great idea for younger kids.
some tips: -press b to get out of socializing with someone (you don't have to sit there talking until your sim pees its pants)
-don't get a pet right away. make money first so you don't get everything repoed the first month because you can't make payments
-use the easel to paint things for money and to level up creativity. once you're at level 10 you start to make thousands a painting
overall, love the game! but it's repetitive, much like the sims on other consoles.

A Kid's Review on March 3, 2007
I got this game for Christmas. At first I thought it was great, but now I hardly ever play it. I have discovered that Sims 2 Pets is more about the sim, and not the pet. When you start the game, you don't even own a pet!! The people in your town let their pets run around town. These people have you run errands for them, and some of the people give you jobs so you can earn money. Every 2 weeks, you have to pay your rent, and if you don't, the repo lady comes and takes your things to pay it. This game CAN be fun, but sometimes it seems more like a chore. The days go by quickly, and if you don't take care of your sim, she or he will collapse, and you'll be forced to pay the doctor's bill. Here's something you might want to know: I got this game brand-new. I found that with no warning the game sometimes freezes, and the screen turns green and black. I'm not sure if this is just a problem with my game or what, but it's not fair that this happens. If you haven't save your game recently, all the things you've accomplished will be gone.
