    As with the original, the voice commands need some work. The competition events aren't very good. Frisbee is fun, lure coursing is ok, but .... those voice commands are just so frustrating. The 3D in the game is nice and the visuals are much better than the DS version. Nothing really groundbreaking except maybe the addition of cats, which unfortunately don't do anything except look cute.

    I love this game! It's really fun and it's the best game in the Nintendogs series! I really recommend this for everyone who loves dogs and cats. 10/10.

    Nintendogs+Cats is a really good game! It's the best dog caring game ever! The graphics are better than the graphics in the original Nintendogs. The pets' fur looks realistic in 3D and they put some dog breeds that are not in the original Nintendogs in this game. I would recommend this game to anyone who loves dogs or cats.

    They did a awesome job on this Nintendogs on the 3DS, the 3D graphics are amazing, the dogs and cats are of great details, you can take your 3ds with you and virtually walk with them while your going to school or work, it counts your steps, and you get rewards the more you walk in RL.

    There is plenty to do in Nintendogs + Cats, but most gamers will get tired of the competitions pretty quickly.

    It may not be leaps and bounds away from the original Nintendogs, but a few improvements and additions, regardless of gimmick factor, means that Nintendogs + cats does prove that the virtual pet genre is still alive and kicking.

    Nintendogs + Cats has been outmanouvered by other stationary virtual pet simulators for both Move and Kinect, but will still any animal cravings you may have during a trip. But at home it's more likely to collect dust than play catch.
