This article is about the Nintendo DS game. For other uses, see The Sims 2 (disambiguation).

The Sims 2 is a game for Nintendo DS. It is based off the PC version of The Sims 2. It is one of two main versions of The Sims 2 for DS, the other being The Sims 2: Castaway which was also released for Wii, PS3 and PSP.

The game begins with your sim becoming stranded in Strangetown after their car breaks down. From there, they go on to be the manager of the Strangetown Hotel and bring the town back to life. Along the way, they meet many people including more residents and guests with secrets and antagonists with mysteries.

Through the game, the Penthouse is occupied by three different guests, all of whom have a specific set of goals which lead towards the end of the game. Throughout the game, your sim will be able to improve relationships with other sims, build more rooms in the hotel and in turn, increase the hotel score.


The game runs by real time, so therefore when a room takes 8 hours to build, that is both in-game and in real life. However, several loopholes are associated with this, as one can simply change the time on the Nintendo DS into the future and have rooms completed and guests checking out instantly. Frequently deemed as time-travelling, when travelling to the future, no in-game effect is encountered, but travelling back in time causes aliens to invade, and your sim to have a slow walk speed, however this can be solved by making them go to the Desert, letting their sanity run out, and waiting for them to recover, which takes around a minute.
