Summary: I like the sound of it. I might this and based on the reviews it sounds good. I think Ham country is just their cage and were they live. Oh, if you don't mind, do know if this works on normal 3DS? Thanks!
Summary: This game does a fairly good job of simulating hamster behavior (except for the fact that they can talk, of course). The hamsters' movements and antics are realistic. Gameplay can be a little boring, though. After you feed and groom your hamster, you can't really do anything until it decides to play. It would be better if you could play mini games whenever you want, rather than having to wait about 15 minutes for your hamster to get in the mood for games.
Summary: According to the Q&A area of Ubi-soft's website, there is no Ham-country per se. They say that the cage is Ham-country because it is a school (you teach the Hamsterz there), a bakery (you feed them from the food menu), etc. I think I would be happier had they just said that it wasn't included in the programming rather than trying to make it sound like the customers are all mistaken.
Summary: I bought this game for my 8 year old daughter. She picked it because a friend of hers has one and she got to play with it a little and liked it. I'm only giving it a 4 because I've never played it myself but my daughter says she loves it and plays with it for hours. She is very bright and loves animals. If this describes you or the person for whom you are buying the game, then go for it.
Summary: I purchased this DS game for my 8 year old daughter. She loves it, and so do I. It is a very light-hearted depiction of hamsters. Our favorite part of the game is the way that the hamsters talk to you. They say really cute, engaging statements, out of the blue, like, "What you do when you see a cat and your heart almost stops?" My daughter thinks the hamsters are really funny, and she enjoys teaching them and buying them enriching items for their cages.
Summary: Great game for the young gamer in your family! My 3 year old LOVES this game!!! She wanted something that she could play since generally speaking her older sister (and dad) hogs the Nintendo DS system. This game is great for her!!! She can't read yet, and has no problems. She could play this game for HOURS!!! Very simple, perfect for the young kids! WHO CARES about Hampsterville or whatever everyone is complaining about....
Summary: I bought this for my 5 year old daughter for Christmas. She asked Santa for NDS and a hamster. There was no way I was going to buy a real hamster for her, so I thought that this was a good alternative. She loved it and has figured out most of the features of the game on her own. FYI, the game requires some reading but she figured it out what to do after I read the bits once/twice.
Summary: My 6 year old has been asking for a hamster, but we have two cats. So I thought this would be a close second. She loves all the hamsters - she has 6 (though the instructions say you can have 4 or 5)! It's fun getting new cages, toys and accessories for them. They even GROW! Don't tell, but I even enjoy playing it from time to time. Reminds me of when I had hamsters growing up.
