5.0 out of 5 stars Let it be what it is and enjoy June 3, 2008
By Keyglow
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
First off let me just say that I'm probably not the target audience for this game. I'm a 30 something male with no children who traditionally loves adventure games akin to Zelda, Mario Galaxy, Okami etc. But a video game based on the small dogs with oversized heads franchise (known to some as The Dog, to others like me as STRANGE RATIO!) was just too much to pass up. So I picked it up.

At 30 bucks this game is totally worth the purchase. Compared to other games of the 'adventure' genre, it's not very original, but the overall cute factor really does make up for it. Essentially the entire game is comprised of various Fetch Quests which involve your character (you can choose to be one of forty odd breeds of dogs like Beagle, Rottweiler, Basset Hound, Poodle, Akita, Husky- the list goes ON and ON and ON) learning how to sniff and running around the Dog Island finding things for other characters, all in the name of finding a cure for your brother/sister (you can decide the gender), who is a non-playable character that gets sick at the beginning of the game.

There are a few varied activities such as fishing, bug catching and dog soccer, and mild puzzle solving (not really- they sort of hold your hand through anything resembling a challenge) but for the most part there's a lot of sniffing and digging. It's a Dog Island, after all. For example, the Doctor on the island (a very likeable Beagle named Potan) will say "fetch me these three herbs from the field and they can be used to help your little sibling" and he tells you what each herb smells like, and you go out and look for it. Your sniff meter gets higher as you get closer and once you're right on top of it, you dig in the ground and out it comes.

3.0 out of 5 stars For kids, but not the youngest June 13, 2008
By Cynthia
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game for my seven and four year old to play. Unfortunately they are both too scared of the "scary snakes" and other wild animals to play most of the quest game, although the four year old likes to change the dog's clothes and run around in the villages (no snakes there), and they both enjoy watching me play. There's a lot of reading required, which means my four year old can't play without someone sitting at her side; it would be good reading practice for my seven year old if he weren't afraid to leave the villages! But the first time he did, a bear caught his dog; he couldn't get away and the dog was killed. Although the game lets you start at the same spot with your health restored, he was badly shaken and really hasn't felt the same bout the game since.

I have played very few video games but found this very enjoyable. I played it myself after the kids were in bed; it took me about three weeks to get through the quest. The game starts out very easy and gradually gets harder, but helps you learn and practice the new skills you need as you need them.

*** minor spoiler alert ****

The ending changes abruptly to a much scarier, less flexible game. It's as if they had to rush it out the door and brought in additional staff. I never, ever want to go through one particular sequence again; fortunately I know my children are years away from being able to get that far. Take my advice and don't accept the invitation to go on the Anc Road. Not only is it no fun, but once you do, you can't get back to the free play part of the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely pleasant and sickenly sweet November 20, 2008
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I agree with the review of just letting this game be what it is. Somethings that will be a drawback for those without patience are the long and mostly unnecessary video sequences very early on in the game. There is also an awful lot of reading as the dialogue between characters is written, not spoken. Younger players who are not reading well or at all will need someone to watch with them much of the time. But hey, reading with our kids is becoming a lost tradition that needs a comeback in some form. This may just lead to bedtimes reading chapters of "Charlotte's Web" with your children rather than just popping in the video and getting it all over with in just over an hour. Sorry...I digress.

The game looks and sounds great, the story is engaging and though sickenly sweet that's okay. Jeez it's about Puppies so what would you expect. There are moments when you'll be moved and think "Aww[...]" and moments you'll laugh, and even be excited. About 30 minutes into the game it becomes what you want it to with exploration and some angry creatures that, yes, will hurt you if you're not careful. The youngest boy I work with was afraid of the snakes and the wild boars and always handed the controller to another resident to play those parts but he never quit playing and remained engrossed in the story line. Anyone can relate to being sick, trying to help someone in need and the frustrations and rewards that come with that. That's what this game is all about. It reminds me very much of the original "Animal Crossing" for the Gamecube to be honest and in some ways, as much as I love that game, I enjoy this one even more. The big difference is this has an adventure story line with a definite beginning and end and "Animal Crossing" just keeps going.
