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.
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.
