Very Good

Great Game though....

This is a fun game, and I'm an older than normal gamer. The game does have a very cute factor going for it, in which you want to know what's going to happen next. Though I find the lack of contact with the Mother dog to make sure your sibling is still alive rather annoying. I still haven't found a way to send them a message.. maybe there isn't a way? All the quests seem like they are taking forever in a doggies life to finish to get the flower needed. I sure hope my sibling has the strength to last till I'm finished!
All in all, a very fun game, it's going to be hard to send this one back!

A great game - if you are under 10 and a girl

My 7 year old loved this game! If you ask me, a bit boring. Sniff here, sniff there, do some more sniffing. Occasionally, a little figuring stuff out. Very repetitive. However, good practice reading. Nice vocabulary used. Completely clean and appropriate. Easy to play. Simple controls. Just my little girl's style. Nothing too taxing, although she still asked me for help on occasion. Great for those who don't need lots of excitement and enjoy completing tasks.

I got the game for my 5yr old daughter because she loves animals and thought she might love this. After she played, she did love it but started to get really frustrated with the game because she couldn't read all the commands telling her what to do. This problem became our (parents) problem because it caused us to have to sit around and watch her play so she could understand what she needed to do. This game would be great it a voice spoke out the commands to the children. This game is for 7yr old & below (in my opinion), but the commands are for 7+yrs and in today's societynot sure how many 7+yr olds would want to play this game.
My daughter had a great time playing it though. The graphics were good, got to go fishing, have the dog run around the fields, etc.
I gave it a 5 out of 10.
