5.0 out of 5 stars Truly amazing March 29, 2011
By Dog Mom
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I decided to get this as my first game for the 3DS and it does not disappoint! I can't believe how clear the graphics are and how the puppies and cats pop out at you. I started with a pug because I have one in real life, and I am dazzled by the similarities of this virtual pug to my real pug. Nintendo did a wonderful job on the mannerisms and poses of the dogs. I can't wait to unlock more breeds and find more presents while I take my Nintendog for a walk. Highly recommend this game, you will not be let down.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Basics and 2D vs. 3D April 3, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
If you've played Nintendogs before, expect much of the same thing. You start the game at the kennel, picking out your first puppy. You can choose between a Golden Retriever, Beagle, Shiba, Pinscher, Pug, Dachshund, Maltese, Great Dane, and English Cocker Spaniel. You can choose 1-3 colors of the dog (depending on what breed you pick) or you can let the game choose for you with the "surprise me" color. You have to get a dog first. Once you have a dog, you unlock the ability to get cats (once you earn enough money). The cats are Standard (with colors of solid, tabby, spotted tabby, and calico), Oriental (with colors of pointed and smoke), and Longhair (also with colors of pointed and smoke). In the case of both cats and dogs, once you pick the color you have three different shades or designs of that color to choose from.

The main point of this game is to simply take care of your pet. You feed it, give it water to drink, take it for walks, play with it. You practice for competitions (disc competition, lure coursing, and obedience trial) which get you money to buy supplies for your pets or to buy new pets. There are different shops for different things including pet supplies, accessories, interiors, secondhand, kennel, and pet hotel. There are also shops when you walk your pet. These shops have strange hours. Like the shops, there is also a park and gym (depending where you walk your pet) where you can practice for the competitions. There is also a pedometer function where your pet walks with you. You select pedometer, close your 3DS, put the game system in your pocket, purse, or hand, and walk. For every so many steps you take, your pet collects treats and other various things.

2D vs. 3D. The most noticeable 3D effect is when your pet jumps up and starts licking you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game! March 28, 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I just got my 3DS yesterday on release day. I bought 5 of the release games with it, one of them being this game. I have spent the most time playing this adorable game! The puppies are so realistic even if you don't have your 3D turned on! I have has so much fun teaching my new Shiba tricks, shopping for an awesome pink collar and food, entering competitions, etc.! I would recommend this game as the first game to buy if you are buying the 3DS for a 6-12 year old. This game is for all ages though! I am a 37 year old mom and bought it so my 8 year old daughter could play around with my new 3DS. I have spent hours more playing with the puppies then she has!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!! November 23, 2011
A Kid's Review
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As the first game I played on my 3ds, I was truly amazed. The dogs are nearly photorealistic, and act much like real dogs. Training them is fun, they learn at their own pace, and slowly become more skilled the more you work with them. You get 9 breeds to start off with, the cutest being the Shiba Inu. I have noticed in my own game (I'm not sure if its an individual quirk or all are like this)that you can only earn up to 200 owner points per day. Getting many owner points unlocks certain things like new dog breeds in the kennel. You can have three dogs living with you at a time, and three at the pet hotel, so six total. If you decide you no longer want a dog, you can donate it to the pet hotel. Walking the dog is fun, you can control the dog somewhat by checking the leash. On a walk there are certain distractions you want to try to keep your dog away from, such as birds, trash, or fire hydrants. If you keep teaching your dog to stay away from these things, it will gradually become more obedient. Also, when walking, you may notice safety cones set up on the roadside. These aren't here simply to look cute. Their object is to weave your dog through them like weave poles in agility (hint: hold the leash low to exhibit optimal control over your dog - however this is still quite challenging.)If you weave succesfully through them, without moving any, an extra present appears for your dog to pick up. Presents are found at random during walks - except when you weave, then you get a present for sure. When walking there are several paths with interesting attractions on them. These are the paths:

Your Neighborhood: A basic neighborhood street with a BARC Botique shop on it that appears randomly,and signs on the sides leading to other paths. Sometimes the roadsign for SECRET PATH appears here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Game! April 1, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
When I first started this game up, I was truly shocked and amazed! The 3D effects in this game are amazing, they blew me away! The graphics are clean and clear and so beautiful, the the puppies and kittens really do pop out and seem so real. Every little hair on their bodies stand out. Much better then the older Nintendogs games. It's so cute taking my Shiba Inu pup for a walk and watching him roll around in the grass or chasing birds. It's just a beautiful game to look at. I love that, instend of having 3 different colors, they have (using the shiba for ex.) 3 different black and tans, 3 different reds, and a tanish cream, all with different markings, some pups are even smaller then the others. The only downside is you can only keep 3 pets at home and 3 at the hotel (less then the older Nintendogs games). But other then that, it's a beautiful game with amazing 3D effects, super cute, and very fun.
