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

    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 skeptic the possibilit... Read Full Review

    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 competitions. The competi... Read Full Review

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

    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 puppy it's whole life).... Read Full Review

    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 retriever, Beagle, P... Read Full Review

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

    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 knock on the kennel... Read Full Review

    no action, but I still like it

    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 is, if you're one of ... Read Full Review

    Great DS Game

    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 ds. ---Gameplay M... Read Full Review
