Great Addition to the Franchise,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Nintendogs + Cats: French Bulldog and New Friends (Video Game)
There will not be much of a structure to this review, it should be a simple, quick review of why I got the game and how I like it.
I am married and have a 3 year old daughter. I recently bought a 3DS and my daughter got the hand me down DS Lite. I got her Nintendogs last week since it is purely a sylus/touch screen game and should have been easy for her to control compared to Super Mario 64, Diddy Kong Racing, and other games that I already have. And it was very easy for her to play. I've played Nintendogs a few years ago on one of my sisters' DS' and enjoyed it. But when I got my daughter the Chihuahua and Friends for the DS, I had more fun with it than her OR my wife! So I just had to see what the 3DS Nintendogs and Cats was about. I got it on here at Amazon new for a great price (less than half of what I would have paid at Walmart AND free 2 day shipping, but enough of that, this is a product review :)). So, the graphics are great, and the dogs look amazin. I like the new contest system of 2 times per contest a day so that is 6 possible contests per dog compared to 3 contests a day per dog in the old one. The contests are my favorite part. I just like to raising a champion. I like the contest system but I liked the contests themselves better in the OLD Nintendogs. What happened to the obstacle course?? That was the best part! And instead of the obstacle course... I get to wind this little handle around so my dog can chase a lure like I'm going fishing or something. What the heck, Japan? Your ideas amaze me. And not in a good way... Other than that I have nothing to complain about, and that complaint is not worthy of dropping any stars on this game's rating. It's a marvelous game all together. The lack of cat options and activities does not bother me. I got it for the dogs. Cats are lazy and annoy me anyways. Being able to take your dogs on more walks than the old one is a plus. Even though I don't use the 3D feature very much, the dogs being on the upper screen rather than the touch screen is still a plus for me because I can use my oversized pen shaped stylus without it getting in the way of my view. One thing that annoyed me but was kinda my fault was the time was off by 12 hours on my 3DS so I woke up this morning and it still said it was Wednesday so I couldn't do any contests yet. Well I fixed the time and I still can't do any contests even though it says it's thursday now... I guess that feature is there to prevent people from time travelling and earning all the money they can carry. So cheaters, stick to grand theft auto. Overall, I give the game a 10/10. It really doesn't get much better on the 3DS. At first it might be slow, but you will get more dogs and will be able to do more per day other than just go on walks because you already did 6 contests..
