Summary: A few summers ago, I found this game at a video rental store and was immediately hooked. Iwent back and renewed every week until I had finished the game about three times. I have since moved away, and have no video rental stores in the area. Recently, I had a sstrong urge to play the game again, so I looked on amazon. I was suprised at the price of a new THE DOG ISLAND game. $40- that's crazy. It's not even a new game.
Summary: My girls (8 and 6) are the ultimate dog lovers! When they saw that we'd bought this game they begged me to let them play it. They loved Nintendogs and played that game for months, so to see something similar on the big screen was very exciting for them. I read previous comments about all the reading that was required for the game, but didn't worry because my girls love to read. They literally played this game for 20 minutes before asking for the other game we bought.
Summary: This game has so much text in it, I had to read everything for my daughter. That wouldn't be bad if it helped move the plot along, but most of the text was completely pointless and slowed the game play down to a crawl. As for the game play - there is none. You pick your dog and then you read hundreds of lines of painfully boring text just to learn that you need to find one other dog 3 houses away.
Summary: I am by no means a "gamer" but I bought this for my 6 year old daughter. The game is essentially reading poorly written and uninteresting dialog (that's right, reading! It's like a horrible subtitles foreign film!). The challenges in the game are as boring as they could make them. The storyline is lame at best and the cuteness factor wears thin in five minutes. My daughter's interest in the game faded within 10 minutes.
Summary: My daughter loves the adventure action and the story. However, the creators did not include any type of easy "save game" feature. Whenever you want to save the game, it might take up to 5, 10, 15 minutes or longer. If you can't find it, you lose your progress. Let the tears begin...
Summary: Mein Enkel ist fünf Jahre alt, sehr fit an der Wii Station, aber lesen kann er natürlich noch nicht. Leider befindet sich bei der Produktbeschreibung nirgendwo der Hinweis, dass das Spiel nur mit Untertiteln läuft und kein einziges deutsches Wort gesprochen wird, statt dessen eine nervende Musik läuft. Schade!
