Nintendogs: Dalmation and Friends
I wanted a dog for a long time but I live in a tiny apartment and don't have the room. I started playing the Nintendo DS a long time ago and decided to try this game out. The first thing I notice was that there are different dog breeds you can choose from but not enough. You can buy the other Nintendogs to get the other dog breeds if you want to. I believe that it should be all dog breeds in one game. I think more people would have purchased the game if the company did that instead.
When you go into the kennel part of the game, you have the option to choose from certain breeds and there are males and females to choose from. Not all dog is the same color either. I decided to pick two Dalmatians. I had the choice to choose a Dalmatian with little to no spots at all or one with a lot of spots. I choose the first dog first so I could figure out how to take care of it before I went back to purchase another one. Each dog is the same price compared to a real dog so each dog I choose was $680.00. You can choose a name but you have to speak the name out loud so the dog can learn its name.
You earn money in the game by doing frisbee contests or agility courses. which is really cool. If you end up taking first place, you will get more money that way. You can also take your dog on a walk and during the walk you will meet other dogs and collect items that you can sell or use. During the game, you can teach your dog tricks and you can pet them. This feature is really cool because it is similar to a real dog.
Compared to other DS games, this game is very realistic and has good graphics. This game would be great for ages 5 and up. It would teach your child responsibility before you choose to have a new family member in real life. I like this game a lot and I hope that they will come out with DS games that are so realistic like this one. I believe the more realistic the game, the better children will learn what it is like in real life.
Do you think this game would teach a child responsibility?
