This game is fun, but can get boring as time gose on. You are a dog and you must go to The dog island to get medicine to save your sister or brother.(you choose the gender). The game revolves around sniffing. If you like dogs and you wantt a adventure game, this is the game for you!

Not your average kid's game

The Dog Island may look like another rushed kid's game but this is actually not the case. This game gives kids a chance to play a game that as great areas, characters, and a interesting story. Ubisoft made a story that you would not expect from a game like this. The areas bright and colorful especially when you get farther in the game. The controls however are a little clunkly. You can only move with the d-pad and it can be a little tough, plus not all the missions are great. Beside from a few errors The Dog Island is a great game for kids who have just started gaming, it's like a kid version of zelda!

Similarities to Mysims and Zelda but unique.

The heart gauge is reminiscent of Zelda but instead of collecting heart containers you gain experience by learning new scents. You earn "woofs"(bones) by completing quests and can spend them on accessories to dress up your pup(like Mysims, it's just for fun). You can even combine accessories and found items to create new ones. Like the Mysims series, you can do various things such as fishing. Some of the characters in the game are very interesting(not just the dogs). One of the cute things is the way you defeat your "enemies". You sneak up behind them while they're either sleeping or otherwise not paying attention to you and then bark to cause them to faint which can sometimes give you the item someone has sent you in search of.
