Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Starting with the graphics, as usual Nintendo's pets aren't just the random pet you came across, but instead designed to be the cutest of the lot. Especially good in this version is the fur of the animals. While Nintendogs DS used clever texturing to make less detailed objects look good, this time they've had the graphics-power to make the animals look like a decent friends of hollywood animation movies like the Ice Age series, very good! (However they look like real pets, their eyes aren't half their head like cartoons.)

When you turn on the 3d feature of the machine and see how they animate, then Nintendogs + Cats look like very real, cute, liveable pets with fluffy fur. If you make the mistake of looking into their cute 3d faces with begging eyes, then you'll even have difficulty realizing how other virtual pets could look cute compared to this! Showing it to a girl who plays Hamsterz she just looked at the dog at the screen for 15 seconds and simply admited "Yeah, I got to get that one..."

Sound is also superb, from the different dogbarks to the purring cats. (I think the 3ds speakers have gotten better than the DS ones too.)

Getting into the game is a breeze thanks to the usual friendly-one-thing-at-a-time-approach like the DS version. I started out with a gold retriver looking very much like the one on the cover. All the dogs and cats at the start looks good, I'm sure it holds true for the later unlockable races too.

The next thing you'll notice is how good the backdrops and sceneries looks. You start out in a cosy Country House with a fire place. The 3d really makes differense when you looking out of the window into your garden.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 27 Mar. 2011

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a fantastic title for the 3DS, I had the original for the DS and this is a huge improvement on it, as you can now get cats too! but be warned, the cats are very life like(as in they ignor you alot and sleep mostly!) so the cats do their own thing where as the dogs you can teach tricks to, take for walks, and play with alot!
the 3D effect is amazing, especially when you go for a walk as you can see far into the distance!
This is a very relaxing game, one that you can pick up and put down easily when you want 5 minutes of fun but relaxing fun, this game is perfect

5.0 out of 5 stars Such an amazing game 6 Jan. 2014

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Amazing. When you first get the game you are already thinking what a great game it will be judging by the picture on the front, you will be even more overwhelmed when you turn on the game and go to the kennel (where you buy your first dog) by how realistic and cute the dogs are. There are nine starter breeds (you unlock more as you progress through the game) and you can choose fist which breed, then which colour fur, and then which dog you will buy judging on gender and on personality (my first dog was a female beagle). Once you have bought the dog you want, you automaticly go to your house. Then you can name your dog whatever you want (mine was called Peppy).

Then of course you start doing all you can to make your pet at home by feeding, washing, walking and training it. You have to buy food, water and shampoo at the pets supplies store, but you start with five packets of food, five bottles of water, and five cartons of shampoo, but you have to buy other things like entertainment, a flying disk and a lure (these things will last forever).When you go on walks you can meet other miis with their dogs and you can sometimes make friends with other dogs.

You can enter competitions, disk competitions, lure coursing and obedience trials. In disk competitions you throw your disk and your dog runs after it and has to catch it in its mouth, you get more points depending on how far you throw it. In lure coursing competitions, you wind your lure along the track and your dog races after it hoping to be first across the finish line. You can train your dog to do different tricks and that is what you do in obedience trials, you make your dog do different tricks to impress the judges.

4.0 out of 5 stars great for a first-timer but....... 5 Nov. 2011
By weelynn
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
.......not so much for those expecting a bigger and better version that the orginal.

I bought the original version for DS Lite, at the time it was the the best of its genre, the ability to look after a pet on your console was great, the features and graphics were amazing but then soon after the novelty wore off, the games limitations became apparent and i found myself bored very quickly......
.............and this happened with the new version (for 3DS)


The graphics!! WOW bigger and better that the original by a clear mile, very tempting to think you are able to actually touch your pet, the detail of the barks, the fur, various weather and time of day details on walks..just wow.

New walk features, the option to go various places, make each walk different (although this only slows down not prevent a repetative edge emerging)


new shops, the ability to have a kitten (although the can make you no money and still cost to keep them), furniture placing in your house (although this is limited also)...would have been nice to move room to room perhaps??


The game is, as the original,a dead-end once you've seen all there is to see. basically its just the same original game with slightly better features, the only thing the 3ds version offers is.....3d graphics.


the ability to breed? an aging process perhaps?? unexpected and random events to spice up gameplay???
