Nintendogs: Not Much Here...

The good:

- Good Graphics.
- Good Music.
- Perfect Gameplay.
- Easter Eggs.
- Many Dogs To Select From.
- Many Things To Unlock.
- Many Things To Do.

The bad:

- Doesn't Have Online Mode.
- No Story.
- No Voice Acting.
- Very Limited
- Gets Boring After A While.
- You Have To Play It Every Day.
- Repetitive.

Summary:

All the Nintendogs games are practically the same, this review will show you the general positive and negative points of this game.

The graphics are very good, however, we can't call them perfect. The dogs are very well detailed, you can see that they are almost real, the fur they have is very nice and detailed.
The places that you go to are also very detailed. Your house, for example, is a very good place and you can decorate it the way you want. You can see everything in your house, the graphics "Adjust" to the place. Same in the park, you can see the nature elements very clearly.

The music ...

My Review

The good:

Lifelike, endearing puppies; easy-to-use training interface; lots of unlockable accessories, dog breeds, and other items; great in short- and medium-length bursts.

The bad:

A few restrictions feel unnecessarily limiting at times.

Summary:

You'd have to have a cold heart indeed to not be charmed by the bright eyes and madly wagging tails of the wonderfully lifelike Nintendogs. The game's boisterous and affectionate young canines are impossibly endearing, making the tasks of caring for them, training them, and simply interacting with them a joy. That Nintendogs occasionally limits some of your activities in what is already a streamlined set of options is pretty much the only bad thing you can say about the virtual puppy game. However, the game is at its best in short, satisfying bursts, and is suited to dog lovers of all ages....

Cute & Cudley For A While.

The good:

-a new innovative game.
-excellent graphics.
-cute puppies.
-dog competitions.
-teach your dog tricks.

The bad:

-limited gaemplay.
-have to use wireless feature to unlock some dogs.

Summary:

Concept
Take cute and adorable puppies and digitalise them
Graphics
The detail on the puppies are excellent, but the environments aren't all that detailed.
Sound
The music is kind of childish but thats okay because you won't notice it that much. The puppy noises are cute and you can hear what is happening outside of your house also.
Control
Mainly all you'll need to use is the DS stylus which is good because there are many uses for the stylus, but what buttons you do have to push are mapped out well.
Gameplay
The main object is to train and take care of your puppy so that it does well in dog tournam...

Always good when you can't get a REAL pet! lol

The good:

The wonderful game that is Nintendogs: Dachshund and Friends. Having the range of dogs to choose from when you first start out and the fact, more dogs come along when you boost up your trainer skills with your pup(s). The realistic look of the puppies. The graphics that were on this game completely astounded me. Your house, your pups, and a lot of the other things giving you the feeling you could reach in a touch it yourself. The great dog like actions, reactions and feelings that your pup experiences and interactive fun as you can pet, wash, brush, feed, and play with them.

The sounds of your pup is incredibly realistic of his whines, barks and growls. The great enjoyment that you can call out their name to interact, teach and tell them commands with your voice and stylus. The range of pups such as the Dachshund, Huskies, Labrador, etc to raise and cuddle. The added bonuses that bring hours of fun are being able to walk your dog around the streets. They can find you gifts, and find other dogs to play or fight with. Take them to the park to play with their disk or interact with other dogs. Training with your dog with the disk can give them a better chance at winning the 'Disk Competition/Trail.' Taking them to the gym to train them in the 'Agility Competition/Trial.' You are also able to buy a wonderful range of toys, food and even remodel your house.

The bad:

I think the only serious problem with the game is telling the dog commands, I guess it got a little hard having to keep the commands at the same tempo and tone so they know what you are saying. Sometimes you could tell them to lie down and they could use the command shake instead. I found that quite frustration. I think they should of gave you another choose of saying the commands or using your stylus to tell them.

Summary:

This game is incredible to play. Some advice for you all. Your pup is like a tamagotchi. Keep caring for it, or they'll run away and I don't think you'd want that. You do keep busy when handling your young pups, teaching them commands, brushing them, washing them, training them and holding them in competitions. It's a lot of hard work. When continuing, it could get a little boring at sometimes, but it does give you many hours of fun.
