Nintendogs was the DS game that I obssesed about until it was released and I couldn't wait to get my hands on it, I remember when it came in its package from play.com, I ripped it out of the packaging, teared the cellaphame (appologies if i spelt that wrong), stuck the chip in and was slightly dissapointed. For about the first half an hour I was sat there screaming into the mic to get my new pup just to learn its name. Does it get better ?
Yes. Aside from having to teach your dog its name (Lizzie isn't that hard is it ?) you can teach it tricks which are fun to do and not to mension watch, you can take your dog for walks and find various things to stick on its face, play with and more importantly SELL SELL SELL. Money on this game goes towards supplies, various toys, basic accesories and some times junk thats completely pointless but amusing to your dogs. There are two ways to earn money, SELL SELL SELL and enter competitions, these are simple and very fun. The three catagories are frisby (a breeze), speed (a breeze if you have the right dog) and obedience (fat chance). You can practise frisby up the park and speed up the local gym. You have to wash your dog and give it food and water (greedy little things, do they think I am made of money) and dump them in a dog hotel.
The graphics in this game are a delight for handheld Nintendo's, truely this is probably the best game for graphics on the DS. Not that this matters as most people who actually by Nintendo brand things aren't bothered about that. Moving on.
This game will keep you amused for about an hour as you can only teach your dog 3 tricks a day, you have to wait an hour before you can the little things again, and your only alowd to enter a dog in 3 competitions a day. This is about the only thing wrong with it ooh and that if your voice changes you can forget about using the mic, trust me I learned that the hard way. NINTENDON
