Paws & Claws Pet Resort

Excerpt: The well known, and well respected Paws & Claws series is now on the Nintendo Wii in Paws & Claws Pet Resort. The lack of a tutorial has been one of the biggest problems with other games in this franchise, and I am happy to report Paws & Claws Pet Resort starts out with an inclusive tutorial. Expert gamers can skip it at any time, so one needs to be concerned there. Players get to start out with small animals like rabbits.
Inexpensive pet sim game is surprisingly sophisticated.

Summary: Parents need to know that this is a game for children who are interested in animals. It allows players to take care of guinea pigs, birds, horses, dogs, and cats and provides information regarding these animals' needs needs and behaviors. Kids can interact with the creatures under their care by using the motion sensitive Wii remote to make stroke and brush motions that will effectively groom the pets.
Summary: I tried hard to enjoy this game, simply because I wanted to believe that there is one pet game out there that doesn’t rely on tired mechanics, horrible Wii motion controls, bad graphics, and shady voiceovers in order to appeal to children and potential buyers. While there is the potential to teach children responsibility here via working toward earning "bigger" animals, the game is too frustrating to recommend to anyone other than those who enjoy playing fruitless...
Pros: Eventually you'll get to take care of the "cool" animals., Different objectives to tackle for different animals., It's more fun than the game, Damnation
Cons: Terrible graphics., Laughably bad voiceovers., Tedious tasks are necessary in order to get to the better selection of pets., Overall low production values.
