Innovative & Cute
on November 3, 2007
This game is so cute and innovative. I waited quite a long time for a game like this to be created for the DS. I'm always looking for games for my niece to play, but I have to admit, I bought this one for myself.(My niece really enjoys this game as well.) No, this isn't a game all gamers will love to play, but if you are into cute games and/or like babies, this could be your game. It isn't perfect, but I gave it four stars.
In the game, you play as a babysitter. Not only do you babysit babies, but you are also in charge of housecleaning,lawn care & maintenance (completed through mini games).There are various babies (different nationalities, too) that you babysit. You don't get to choose who you babysit or say you don't want to babysit a certain baby. The game will choose for you.
You can purchase items for the babies and for your home-toys, outfits (alien, pig, cowboy, etc.), clothing, furninture,paint, seeds (to grow in your backyard), and more. It is not a complicated game, but kids under about the age of 8 will most likely need some help playing some parts of the game & mini-games. Also, I find this game is best played in short increments, since it can get repetitive at times.
Overall, I am glad I purchased this game. I hope they continue to make similar games (esp. w/babies). I'd definetly purchase babyz2.
