      Should never have gotten past product testing

      I love most of the Sims games. The Sims 2 was a huge landmark when released on the PC, but given how poorly it was ported to the PSP, does the Pets version fare any better? Simply, no.

      My main praise for the game comes out of how much there is to customise and create, the most prominent of which is probably the pet creation mode, where you can dictate what animal you want, and then also what they look like. The buying and building is fine, except that a cheap method not to stretch the PSP's limitations means that if you put too much in your home, it will spontaneously combust (I kid you not!).

      My main gripe with the game is that everything is so slow going, and the PSP clearly isn't designed to handle a game like this well. Furthermore, there are some clunky mechanics, which mean you're often forced to do something you don't want to do, because the game tells you to. Also, the aging aspect of The Sims 2 on the PC has been totally diminished, and it's not on here one bit sadly.

      Visually, the game looks alright, and the sound is as poor as it has ever been in these games. On a technical level, the game just isn't that good because the PSP is clearly struggling to run the game properly.

      There was so much potential here, and indeed, some of the new additions, like the pets, are a lot of fun, but you'll have to sit through frustrating loading screens in that stead. You'd have to be a pretty big fan of The Sims to give this game a free pass.

      From scampering pooches to cuddly kittens, now you can add a new furry friend to your Sims' lives. Choose from popular dog and cat breeds like Golden Retrievers, German Shepherds, Persians, and Siamese or customize their appearance and personality to create a unique pet for your Sim to raise as one of the family. Your Sims will enjoy teaching their pets tricks, taking them to the park, caring for them, and outfitting them with new accessories. But keep one thing in mind Sims' pets have minds of their own, so be sure to expect the unexpected.
