It's O.K

  • Summary: All of the games that I buy are for all of my children to share ages 8,7,6,2 and as for this game it seems that you have to do the commands and talk into the microphone over and over again for it to work and I don't mean just 2-3 times but more like 20-30 I even try and it seems to do the same so I wouldn't recommend it

It gets boring fast...

Jared P. Woodall III, Amazon
16 March 2007
  • Summary: When I first got this game it was tons of fun, Now it has gotten boring. Sure, it is cute and who doesn't want to play with a cute puupy, after about two weeks the fun stopped. When you start this game there are six starter breeds, don't worry you will be able to unlock the other breeds later. You then go to your house and you heve to teach your puppy his/her name and how to sit. Once you get to know your puppy and he/she is content you may take it for a walk.

Nintendogs Labrador Retriever & Friends (DS): Uninvolving but novel

shaneo632, Dooyoo
9 February 2010
  • Summary: I never thought I'd see the day when a dog-owner sim would come out, and while it's not my type of game generally, I can see the appeal. You begin by adopting a puppy of your choice, naming it (which is itself no mean feat, as you have to use the DS mic to shout it), and then begin teaching him basic obedience as you would a real dog.
  • Pros: Mic use, multiplayer
  • Cons: Not much to it

Woof Woof !

  • Summary: I had this game since it came out as I have always liked virtual pets, like the ones you get on Tamagotchis. It's an excellent game but the replay value wasn't great as it gets a bit repetitive and boring. However, if you are devoted to your dog and teaching it new tricks and looking after it, this game will be a lot longer-lasting. I must admit, I still check on my dogs every few months, which is more than enough - haha!
  • Pros: Realistic, Graphics + Sound, Teach Tricks, Microphone Feature, Own A Few Dogs
  • Cons: Replay Value...

Getting tired?

22 July 2009
  • Summary: Nintendogs is a really fun game to play at first. At the beginning, you get a price limit and you can choose from labradors, corgies, german shepards, and more. (Later in the game, if you find a certain item you will unlock dalmations too.) You also start of with $50 to buy food, drinks and accessories for your dog. You can take your dog for walks. You start off not being able to go very far but the more walks you take, the further your dog can go.

Nintendogs Labrador Retriever & Friends (DS): Better than a real dog?

robertjb, Dooyoo
2 July 2009
  • Summary: This was one of the top selling Nintendo DS games, the premise of the game is basically you get to choose a type of dog to adopt and then you raise it. There are many things you can do with your dog, you can take him for walks, feed him, clean him and even enter him in competitions. These actions are all processed by the usage of the stylus which makes for a very intereactive experience.
  • Pros: Fun, great stylus use
  • Cons: not really a game, aimed at younger kids not gamers

Nintendogs Labrador Retriever & Friends (DS): Nintendogs

6rosco9, Dooyoo
7 April 2009
  • Summary: This is a really good game for kids ages 4-14 as it is like looking after a real pet, (as real as a computer game can possibly be). You are able to interact with 3 dogs at any one time, any more dogs that you own will have to be put into the doggy hotel until you rdecide to go back to them. With the other dgos you need to keep them fed watered and clean. You are able to enter the dogs ino different contests; disc competition, agility and obedience.
  • Pros: Alternative to having a pet for children
  • Cons: Can become very frustrating
