I found The Sims: 2 Pets to be strongly addictive. The game has a VERY repetitive game play but the ease of game play held my interest. You are a veterinarian treating just cats and dogs. The illnesses you treat are fleas, flu, broken limb, obstruction and ugly (Yes, there's a cure for ugly)but that is it. You can teach them new tricks and play with them just like Nintendogs but you too have needs (sleeping, eating, bathing...etc). It is a good effort in marring the best of The Sims and the best of Nintendogs but the end result is a fair game.

This is the first time I've ever played a Sims game and if this is typical of them I don't understand why they are so popular. This is by far the most boring and annoying game I've played on the Nintendo DS. I played it for a half hour and had enough. My SIM had to use the bathroom constantly! All I had time to do was use the bathroom, eat, sleep, and shower. Who showers three times a day? It was ridiculous! I hardly had any time to interact with my pet or do my job. Not only that, but the touch screen would get too sensitive when I'd bring up the menu of a person who brought in their pet so it would automatically select 'argue' several times in a row which frustrated me. Suffice it to say, I won't be buying this game.
