Although The Sims 2 Apartment Pets doesn’t bring anything exactly new to The Sims series that we haven’t seen before, it’ll be the first opportunity to access pets on a handheld. The new features being added for this DS translation should justify the standalone package, particularly if you’ve never experienced any of the previous games. We’d be keen to see some form of wireless item sharing supported, but in its current state it’s a passable trick worthy of a treat.
