Conclusion: If you love adorable pet sims, Nintendogs + Cats is a must-buy. It will melt your heart. If, however, you don't dig cute things, or if you just want a Nintendo 3DS game that's a bit more fast-paced, hook your leash up to another diversion.
Excerpt: Even though Nintendo are resting on their gaming laurels with this game... Nintendogs + Cats is still one of the cutest games ever made. At its deliciously friendly heart of gold, Nintendogs + Cats is almost a carbon copy of the previous DS game, however with the new graphical capabilities of the Nintendo 3DS, it really takes the premise of owning a virtual dog to a whole new level.
Excerpt: Think back to the last time you held a puppy. Now, try and recall your emotions during that moment. If you are having trouble remembering, let me jog your memory for you. You were happy. A huge grin split your face from ear to ear. You might have even giggled like schoolgirl. If the puppy peed in your lap, your smile may have wavered for a few seconds, but it came back. How do I know this? — Because puppies have that effect on people. All people.
