5.0 out of 5 stars like chess, only a lot more complicated, 26 April 2006
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This is an exceptional strategy game that does not dissapoint especially in terms of how much gameplay it has to offer. It's a turn-based strategy that see's you deploying units and battling them on a variety of different maps. The main one player mode is campaign mode that is like a story based series of battles having you use different COs for their strengths and weaknesses and believe me from an advance wars veteran- it is absolutely huge. After two weeks of playing it solidly I got on campaign mode what I thought was the final mission but I'm still playing it now. The war room offers even more gameplay at a more advance level as you could be fending of 2 or 3 armies at once. This is whats good about the game, it takes one hell of a player to complete the game.

I'd reccomend this game to anyone

5.0 out of 5 stars what will they think of next?, 20 Dec 2005
This is by far, one of nintendo's most creative and innovative titles yet. As the name suggests the game involves caring for various breeds of dogs which you feed, train, take for walks, wash, play with and enter contests with. The most impressive feature of the game is the use of the microphone that the DS has; you can actually call for your dog into the microphone and it will recognise your voice and also obey comands such as 'sit' 'lie down' and 'roll over' to name a few.
When taking your new pup for a walk you can visit other dogs in the street or in the park and play frisbee with them (using the touch screen), or fetch, or anything you want.
The range of different toys you get is huge and each different dog will have a different reaction to it. For example you can get a bubble blower that you can use by blowing into the microphone that some dogs will like and have them jumping up to pop them whereas other dogs will be scared of it and start barking.
I won't give away anything else but I will say that nintendogs is a very cute and enjoyable game. If you like dogs, then I recommend that you buy it and don't forget to clean up after it!
