Summary: Great game, great concept. My daughter loved playing this game however as she opened up different areas, animals the game unfortunately stopped saving and she had to start over, very disappointing.
Summary: I have children that are 10 & 4 years old that play this game. The both enjoy it , though, it helps if your child can read well as there is a lot of reading and I frequently read each case description or instruction to my 4 year old. Still a fun game for the kiddos!
Summary: Gift for grand-daughter. She wants to be a vet when she grows up. Have to help take care of the animals (feed, groom, play with animals). I would recommend this for 5-6 year old through pre-teens. Older children would get bored quick.
Summary: Bought this for my daughter who is really into animals and is sure she wants to be a vet. Find her playing with her sister or just enjoying on her own a lot. She really has had lots of fun with this game. Not a lot of levels, so once you have done everything once, then there is not a lot to add, but still seems worth the price.
Summary: I'm 13 years old and I just finished "Vet Life". I thought it was fun overall. You get to see what kind of cases you may encounter as a real vet. You get to help all kinds of animals, from dogs to orangutans. I agree with the other reviews when they say that the grading is unfair sometimes. Some of the actions you have to do can be unclear or just plain hard and can bring your grade down. Also, the game feels repetative sometimes, such as delivering babies.
Summary: My 11 year old daughter loves animals, science, and wants to become a vet. This game seemed like a perfect gift. The game itself is great, however, the player is "graded" on their "vet skills" and then given an overall letter grade on the case. My daughter became so flustered and upset with receiving a B- or C+. I feel that the letter grades and being rated either "sloppy" or "good" on skills is most inappropriate for a game-a real teaching course yes, but not a game.
Summary: My daughter is nearly 13 and wants to be a vet someday. While this game doesn't give you a pre-vet degree during play, it is a fun way to experience what cases a vet may be presented with! The game starts with simple domestic animal cases such as taking care of a dog who was on the receiving end of a skunk spray, and progresses to harder cases and more exotic animals as the player gains experience. Where else can a 12 year old perform brain surgery on a cat?!
