    The best possible showcase for your DS. Too bad you won't be playing it after a month.

    Rated on December 25, 2005 by viberooni

    Nintendogs is a difficult game to review. It's an enchanting piece of software the likes of which haven't been seen before that utilizes all of the DS's unique functions. If you ever want to show a sk...

    Like a dog that has very little training.

    If you were never able to get a dog at all then this is the game for you. The game play (I'm sorry to say) is very lacking. You train your dogs, walk them, pet them, teach them tricks and enter compe...

    First few plays it seems like a fantastic game. Good graphics and sound but does become repetitive.

    Rated on August 25, 2006 by NintendoDSChik2

    The good: Graphics are great, making the dogs very life-like. The puppies mannerisms are very similar to a real dogs. It almost feels as if you're interacting with a real life puppy (which stays a pup...

    Almost everything that real life dogs can do, but only better!

    All three Nintendog games are just plain brilliant. When you first go to the kernell to get a dog, there'll be six basic dogs in every game, for Dashund, there's Mini Dachshund(No wonder =P), Golden ...

    This is a great game. I suggest you get it if you are a dog lover.

    Rated on December 30, 2005 by lightningrod767

    You must think that this game may be girlish and babyish. It's not. It is super cool to have a virtual pal! This is also one of the first DS games that allow you to talk into the microphone. You first...

    no action, but I still like it

    Rated on December 31, 2005 by SharonC

    Okay, if you are thinking of buying this one, you would have to use the microphone a lot. And if you think Animal Crossing is boring, then dont get this, cause you'll probably get bored. So my point i...

    Great DS Game

    Rated on July 23, 2006 by ludadav

    Nintendogs was my first anticipation of the ds. Once I heard about it at E3 videos a while back I counted down the days till this game came out. To me, it's probably the most creative concept on the d...
