Laid Back RPG Title- Ideal for Casual Gamers

  • Summary: The Dog Island was one of the first games I purchased for the Wii. After coming across a handful of positive reviews, I wanted to give it a try (plus, I'm a big dog lover). Am I glad I did! The game was very enjoyable. First off, for anyone who loves customization- there is plenty in this game! Next to the usual pick your name & gender, you get to select what breed of dog you would like to be....and the list is freakin' huge!

  • Summary: I bought this game for two of my children, ages 7 and 9, but my 14 year old daughter enjoyed it also! It's very cute and they played it until they finished it. They enjoyed picking out which breed of dog they will be in the game and they enjoyed completing all the tasks that they were required to accomplish within the game. It was a lot of fun for them. I'd recommend The Dog Island.

Good overall, but beware

  • Summary: See the **** below for an important note if you're playing the game. I got this for my 7 year old daughter. Overall, she loved the game, and had great fun with it. My wife and I ended up playing with our own characters later, since it looked interesting. We all had fun with it. I'd give it a 5 (for what it is) if it weren't for the problem mentioned below. The game seemed to us to be quite similar to a lot of role-playing games.

The Dog Island

Amazon

  • Summary: I loved this game because it was so long and that made me exited to come home and play it.I finally beat it. it is a very fun game the onley thing I did not like was that the bad stuff that happened on the game took so long and when I finally got home for the second time I did not even get to do any thing it was all the ending credits. I recomend this game to people who do not get sad easy and enjoy a good long game.I loved it.

  • Summary: This game was for my 11 year old daughter. She really enjoys playing it and has fun investigating all the different places,but wished the game had more things to do where she didn't finish the game so fast.

Overall Entertaining Game

Bargain Shopper, Amazon
19 May 2008
  • Summary: When I purchased this game, I felt that $30 was a good price. It's an entertaining game with cute dogs and even cute looking enemies, such as snakes, bears, crocodiles,etc. I overall enjoy this game, but the method of digging is difficult. When searching for a scent, and it's been found, it's difficult to get my dog to dig in the correct area. He always turns the opposite way, or digs in a different spot, so it takes me a few minutes to finally dig up the item.

Keeps my nine year old's attention

  • Summary: My nine year old daughter so far likes this game. It is very similar to Animal Crossing so if you are a fan of that, this will hold your attention for awhile. The dogs are very cute too! Requires lots of reading for kids since all conversation between characters is done by text. One of the better Wii games for younger kids to come out in awhile. Surprisingly good price too.

great for younger gamers!

  • Summary: Dog Island is a neat little game! I think the graphics are great and the concepts are very easy to catch on to. Most of the game is spent carrying out various tasks by roaming around the "island" to find different plants/items/bugs/fish. This would be a great game for a younger gamer as it is very easy to accomplish the little "missions". My favorite part about this game is the customization!

RPG about Puppies

Monique Salcido "Gamer Extrodinare", Amazon
9 May 2008
  • Summary: This game is a good buy for only 30 dollars. It plays a lot like "Dog's Life" another RPG involving, you guessed it, Dogs! Anyway, it is very simplistic and the graphics are some of the best on the wii. The game is designed to look really *cute* so if you can't stand cutesy games then pass on this one. It's opening song sounds like an anime intro and involves puppies frolicking around. It isn't a very long game I'd guess maybe 20 hours.
