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!
