4.0 out of 5 stars Adorable! March 6 2008
By Ang H
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I love this game! Even though I'm 20, and this is more of a kids game, I had to buy it. I love dogs to death, and this is the cutest game other than Nintendogs that I've played. It is completley different from the DS version. You can buy clothes, fish, catch bugs and other things, all while doing fun quests. It is easy to beat, but I still enjoy every minute of it. I play it over and over, each time with a different breed, which there are 40 of.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun for kids Jan. 4 2008
By Wayward - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm the mom of 2 girls, 5 and 9 who got this game for Christmas.

To start with, basic reading skills are required. Important information is highlighted, and its possible to get the gist of what to do from the highlighted text, but having a reader helps a lot. Characters prompt you to go to specific areas to achieve various tasks. The storyline and gameplay are almost exactly the same as Petz Catz 2, so owning both is a bit repetitive unless you need to play as both a cat and a dog.

There are multiple layers of gameplay. You can change your dogz clothes, you can buy wardrobes for the town's inhabitants, you can unlock new patterns and colors by catching insects and digging up vegetables or flowers. There are mini games to unlock (which can then be played 2 player) But, mostly you need to follow the storyline, and work to save the magic hat from Ivlet.

As the previous poster mentioned, the slow dialogues get tiresome and there is no way to skip them. However, not too far into the game a magic creature appears who teaches you "how" to save. There are then save blocks (and later warp blocks) which can be used whenever you wish. They don't move, or disappear, or become unusable.

My girls feel that this game is excellent, great for any kid and expect long term enjoyment. However, as an adult, they have both nearly met the main objective in a little over a week of rainy vacation day playing. It's cute, its worth playing. You don't need both Catz and Dogz, and I wouldn't pay $50 for it. Amazon's price was great.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not as described on the game box or the April 12 2008
By S. Singer - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game for my 5 year old daughter. The back of the box described exactly what she likes to do: "choose a puppy and make him cuter with clothing and accessories"; "create a comfortable pet village and guide your lovable bundle of fur through 60 fun adventures"; and "Compete against your friends in mini-games such as racing." Wow is this description ever wrong! I opened the manual and learned the game was actually about defeating an evil wolf (Ivlet) and his evil minion. Through the course of the game "enemy animals are on the way. Ivlet cast an evil spell on the animals in the fields to make them go wild and they will attack you if you get too close to them." Your puppy can actually DIE in this adventure. There is far too much evil, attacking, illness, etc. to make this game fun for a 5 year old girly girl. You can't even dress up your dog until you play the games and earn money to buy clothes - and the first game is "cops and robbers" - again, not suitable for a 5 year old girl. Re-read the product description and look for the mention of the evil wolf. It's not there yet it's the primary mission of the game! I am going to return this game as it is truly not what's advertised.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Game for Children over 5 June 23 2010
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I think this game is a complicated for children under five years old. I am 12 and I enjoy this game. For anyone who is reading this, and you have read comments on how this is a bad game for children, the evil wolf does not physically hurt anyone. In one person's comment, they said your puppy can die in the game. This is not true; you get low health and then it's game over, and then right back to the game. Your puppy doesn't die or get injured. There is no difference in its appearance no matter what happens. The people who made this would never let a puppy die in a kids video game. I disagree with a lot of people, this game is very fun for me and you go on lots of quests and your puppy can get lots of cute accessories. I do agree that it's a little complicated for younger children, and that the game does not include the part of the evil wolf on the case, but if your child is 8 years or older I think this game would be perfect.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun game, too difficult, must read a lot, and horrible storyline. Feb. 25 2008
By Geraldo A. Palomo - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Bougth this to play with my 5 year old girl, PROS: She loves dogs, loves to dress them, buy clothes for them, interact with other dogs in the game, and truly looks forward to play a little bit everyday. CONS: Storymode is only one player, the storyline is too Eve and the Forbidden Fruit, in that "you" actually disobay authority to release an evil dog from jail that causes all the havock in the town that you have to fix. There is a lot of detailed reading that you must read at every step to your kid. I wish they would have made it cuter. PS: She had nightmares of the evil dog more than one night, I had to skip these scenes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun but misleading Aug. 26 2008
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
You gotta wonder if the product descibers and the product manufacturers were on the same page. Seven different breeds, mix and match, keep a journal, rewards, etc. all lies! This game starts with you choosing and naming your puppy (And there are about forty breeds to choose from!) and then you guide your puppy through a virtual world according to instructions from others, like, go to Dolphin Coast so we can play. Although other characters talk to you, you have to imagine what your puppy is saying back, to some extent. For example they'll say, "I need some cloth." and your puppy will bark, and they'll say, "Oh, you'll get some for me? Thank you!"

About the plot. As everyone has said, it is about an evil wolf named Ivlet. Naturally, the box neglected to mention this all important fact and made it sound like, "Oh, happy day, la la la, I'll just dress up my puppy and design my village" when it really is so much more than that. You can't "design your village" anyway; what they're referring to is helping to rebuild the village after Ivlet destroyed it; you have absolutely no say in what the building looks like. The only designing you do is planting flowers.

As someone mentioned, this probably would be too violent for a five year old, so maybe you should wait until your child's a little older. However it is extremely mild for a game with a villain (you defeat him by throwing pebbles).

This game can get boring after a while; all you do is run and find people and/or sniff out objects. There is very little variety. Also, at some point the aquarium guy asks you to catch a fish for him in Polar Fields. You apparently have to go to a special dock to be able to catch it. I found the dock and fished for fifteen minutes and I still haven't caught it. Talking of fifteen minutes, there is a really long cutscene near the beginning of the game that takes about that long if you skip the text.

But the worst thing about the game is more of a moral issue. Your puppy is sent by adults into very dangerous situations; although your parents tell you to let the authorities get the Magic Hat back from Ivlet, Beat (Who is supposedly the good side of the magic hat) convinces you to go get it back anyway; worse than that, you are later encouraged by several adults to fight the monster instead of them. The fish the guy at the aquarium wants you to get is to cover up a lie that he'd already caught it himself.

All in all, this is a fun game which can get a bit annoying at times, but don't let your child learn morals from it.
