This highly interactive game is addictive! The puppy's characteristics and responses to you are so realistic that you naturally want to “play” with it more! The bonus of this game is that the puppy doesn't die if you don't play the game for some time – although it will probably need a good bath, feed and water when you next play with it!
It's worthwhile trying out the different breeds of puppies available in the kennel as they all have their own special talents which will shine through at the competitions.
An added bonus is being able to swap breeds wirelessly with a friend (if they have another Nintendogs game).
All up, a great game for young and old alike.
