Conclusion: This game has to be given at least 3 stars simply for the cute puppies. This game is absolutley adorable, and really makes you smile when you have a play. The game itself is so very easy. Some of the mini games are fun, and it has you laughing. But definatley not a game for those serious gamers, and i don't think it will be a hit for the boys. However, i think this game is great for young girls. My little cousin loves it, as do her friends.
Conclusion: This game is sickingly sweet. With their bright eyes the puppies are simply adorable. For sweetness this game gets 5/5. The game is rather repetitive though. Catching insects, digging up fruit and fishing are very similar in their actions. There is also too many breaks in the gameplay due to a seemingly neverending storyline. The minigames are quite fun and varied. You get to play a wide range including hockey, dodgeball, and chicken. The DS version is better.
Summary: We bought this for our daughter for Christmas and my initial impression was that it seemed a bit confusing for a 6 year old. However, having played for a few days we are finding it fairly easy for her. My dog loving daughter has picked a spirited Siberian Husky to start her adventure.
I just hope they don't bring Fleaz into the house!

Summary: Our copy of Dogz was purchased by my extremely soft, dog-adoring eight year old son who just luuurved Nintedogs (DS). I (and the cat) hope it will stave off his desire to own a real dog. He hopes it will encourage me to come to my senses and get him a real dog. Firstly, if you are coming from playing Nintendogs, the animation on Dogz is quite disappointing. On the cover of the game the dogs pictured look like photographs. The actual gameplay "Dogz", however, do not.
Pros: Harmless, cute, Nintendogs fans will love it
