I got this game with my ds when they first ever came out and i was seriously impressedwith the graphics and the sounds that you hear are soo real i wondered whether they were floating through my window or coming out of my ds. I have 8 dogs (5 in hotel, i am going to donate them soon, and 3 at home). I have to go onto nintendogs once a day to feed, clean, walk and compeat my dogs. I wouldn't call this a game it's a little bit like a small responsibility because if you do not feed your dog it will run away in neglect. I have always loved this game and i cant see any reason not to.
My dog (my real dog) also loves this game because of the vocals from the ds dogs lol.
Great game for any dog lovers out there of all ages!!!
