This review is from: Nintendogs + Cats: Toy Poodle and New Friends (Video Game)
I own Nintendogs for the the Nintendo DS, and was excited to play Nintendogs + Cats for the 3DS. I was still pleasantly surprised to play it! I knew I would like the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendogs + Cats, but I didn't think I'd like them this much. First, let me tell you that I am a 26 year old woman. I hear this game is targeted at children, but I still find enjoyment in it! The dogs have more personality in this game than the original, which is nice. The walks you can take with your dog are more enjoyable. The game understands my voice more in this game than the original. The graphics are obviously a lot better than the original; the 3D is way cooler than I thought it would be. It's something you have to see to believe.

The only complaint I have is that the dogs never go to the bottom screen the way they do in the DS version. When you're playing with the dog, there is a silhouette of him/her on the bottom screen, and you pet the silhouette as it shows a hand petting the dog on the top screen. I liked being able to "pet" the actual dog in the first game.

Overall, it's just a nice, little game. I haven't been able to adopt a cat yet, but I have played with the kittens in the kennel. I'm slightly disappointed at the variety, there are only three kinds of cats. But for me, that doesn't detract from the experience at all.

Also in this game, you can buy furniture for the house and the dogs and cats interact with the furniture, which is a nice touch.

The reason why I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is due to the fact that this is not a lengthy game. Spending half an hour a day feels like enough time with it. I understand it's a simple game, and that's what I like about it. I definitely recommend this game for kids; it's pure and kid-friendly. But I also recommend this for the adults like me who enjoy pet simulators. :)

Can you play this game on the dsi or do you need to have the new 3D ds?

You need to have the new Nintendo 3DS; it has different technology that the dsi doesn't have.
