This game is really entertaining. The "voices" of the cats and dogs on the computer are simply realistic; and there is no need for a pooper-scooper! The best thing is, you can take care of your pet, leave on a vacation for a few days, start up the program, and the game will not go on without you! And better yet, there is no allergy, or cat fur, or smelly doggy breath aorund the house. Really well done. My daughter loves it.

A Kid's Review on February 9, 2005
If you are a kid, and your parents won't let you have a pet, then this is the perfect game 4 you! With the cutest pets, awesome graphics, and cool features, this is definately a good buy.

Graphics-8/10: This game's graphics have really improved since Dogz 1 and the rest of the series. And the dogz look more real than ever. And now some of the themes are 3-D.

Sound-6/10: Although the barks, purrs, and meows all sound pretty realistic, I still think that there could be more sound. But I must say, the sound is decent for a computer game.

Responsibilty-9/10: If you are a parent, then I must say that this game will teach your child you to take care of a pet. Although you have no pooper-scoopers and dirty pets, this game still teaches responsibility. Yo have to feed, play, and love your pet, or else it will run away-A good lesson!

Overall-10/10: This game is basically the best computer game ever made. But that's just my opinion. It may seem boring at first, but soon you will become addicted. I got Dogz 1 when I was 5, and I am now 11. And no, I am not sick of the series!

We bought this for my 5 year old animal lover when we had to return the Pet Vet 3D game she got for Christmas. The other game was a disaster. Lots of glitches that made it difficult to play. This game however is great! She LOVES cats so the idea of being able to take care of and play with a bunch of them is irresitable! Especially since we won't let her get another real one. Two of her cats have had kittens and we didn't have any of the problems that other reviewers have mentioned when that happens. The game seems to be working well and she can get around in it easily. We've even taken a picture of her bedroom and uploaded it as a scene for her cats to play in. I'm so glad we bought this one. It's a keeper!

A Kid's Review on March 18, 2007
OMG! This is possibly one of the best pc pet games EVER! I am 12 yrs old and love animals. I was recently looking for a new virtual pet game; Nintendogs lost its charm, Tamagotchi didn't offer enough, and all those other GBA and DS games weren't satisfing.So, i install the game, easy as pie! Tada! I pick a cute lil'kitty and name it Sailor. I bathe it, give it treatz, and dress it up. Then we visit tons of cool places like Arabia, The beach, and a snowscape scene! There are tons of minigames like tic-ta-toe and rock,paper,siccors. I earn new toys for Sailor by playing the minigames and feed him kibble and milk. Yum! Sailor looks loney so I buy him a friend: Sushi! Together they play around and look happy. But whats this? Awwww, Sailor and Sushi are in love! sushi gives birth to 3 healthy kits named Serpent, Scarab, and Spirit. Cute! They are so small. Now what? Ohhh, you can adopt dogs, too! The fun never ends with this computer game, now does it Sailor? Meeeoww!!

I love this games. I remember a long time ago when they came out with the first one. This of course is way more fun. I agree with all the other reviews but I need to tell you something that nobody mentioned if you are thinking about getting this game. (by the way I am playing this game while I am typing right now)

WARNING: This game contains technology intended to prevent copying that may conflict some CD-RW, DVD-RW, and virtual drives. This game is intended to prevent copying.

GOOD NEWs WARNING: I have a computer with CD-RW and DVD-RW on it and it worked perfectectly. If you are not going to get this game because you have CD-RW or DVD-RW it MIGHT work on your computer anyway. You won't be able to return it once opened. So you will be taking a risk. I just wanted to let you know that there is hope for you still.

Get this game it is perfect for children. This game is like a G version of the Sims except with pets and less complicated. This game is also fun for teens and adults.

A Kid's Review on November 10, 2005
I recommend that any person that likes animals should buy this game. But I also think that you might want to try Petz 4 as well. It offers some features that never made the cut for Petz 5. Here are the Pro's and Con's of both games;

Petz 5 Pro's

-You can have up to four puppyz/kittenz per litter

-You can customize the carrying case

-There are mini-games

-There is a place to bathe your petz

-There are more breedz in the Adoption Centre

Petz 5 Con's

-When your petz has babies, you are restricted to the Nursery, and no other petz can come out while you have the mother out

-The tic-tac-toe game is quite frustrating

-There is no Toy Closet, you must find all items in the game, and if you don't collect the items from the play-scenes when you load the game for the first time, it may take a while to obtain them

-Some items are really hard to obtain, and need repeative use of a mini-game to get, such as the love potion(used to make your petz fall in love)

Petz 4 Pro's

-There is a Toy Closet where all of the items in the game are stored

-When your petz have babies, you are not required to keep the in the Nursery until they mature

-Comes with two extra breedz that do not come with Petz 5: The Pig(Dogz 4) and the Rabbit(Catz 4)

Petz 4 Con's

-Petz can only have one puppyz/kittenz per litter

-Pigz and Rabbitz are spayed/neutered

-Not as many breedz

Both games are customizable, but in order to customize breedz, you need to have some programming skills(experience with either Hex Workshop or Res Hack). I am still in the process of learning to edit breedz!
