Nintendogs + Cats: Toy Poodle & New Friends
16 April 2011
Excerpt: It was not much of a surprise that my excitement Nintendogs + Cats was high and that it was my most sought after title to try for the Nintendo 3DS. Given my love for the release of the Kinect and Kinectimals it made sense. I am still unclear if it was the 3D options itself or the idea of seeing these cute little furballs in 3D that had me anticipating the title the most.
Excerpt: When the game was originally released on DS in 2005, nintendogs combined the care-taking required for Tamagochis of the '90s with the mentality that drives sites like Cute Overload to continuously post pictures of baby porcupines. Nintendo's dogs were animals that were engineered largely - if not solely - for their cuteness.
Conclusion: Overall, Nintendogs + Cats offers nothing substantially new for those familiar with the previous titles. The cats are cute, but significantly less fun and useful than the dogs, and the overall experience with the dogs feels too similar to the last outing to merit a new purchase. Nintendo prides itself on innovation, but with Nintendogs + Cats, the innovation has been dropped in favor of cashing in on a recognizable title.
Nintendogs + Cats: Toy Poodle & New Friends Review
25 March 2011
Excerpt: Owning a pet can be a joyous experience, but it's also a serious responsibility. No game can substitute for the real deal, but the lovable animals in Nintendogs + Cats convey about as much of the delight of owning a pet as you can reasonably expect, and you don't have to worry about having them ruin your furniture. It does away with one of the more interesting features of its predecessor, and the introduction of cats brings surprisingly little to the experience.
Pros: The puppies and kittens are incredibly charming, Caring for and training a dog is a joy, Encounters with other dog owners make walks pleasant, Makes good use of the StreetPass and pedometer
Cons: Limited to entering each competition only twice per day, Takes some time to earn the money to buy a cat, Not much to do with cats, Sense of exploration has been removed from walks
Summary: The original and best Nintendo handheld pet sim returns to show you what the 3DS can do. Very much a casual game and this is a perfectly cute example, almost alarmingly so. Subtle but effective use of 3D and little gimmicks like photos and the AR make this a game younger children will lap up especially, although older gamers will have fun too playing with a non-demanding virtual pet.
Conclusion: Sockersött spel om att ta hand om en hundvalp. Lär den trick, gå ut och gå med den och se till att den mår bra. Ställ upp i tävlingar och samla ihop pengar för att köpa nya hundar, föremål eller ny inredning. Det är ett spel för barn eller de med tålamod och som står ut med blandningen av långsamt tempo tvångsmässigt omhändertagande och roliga tävlingar. Jämfört med den 5,5 år gamla föregångaren har pinsamt lite hänt.
