    It's really just awful. There's no reason for anyone to go anyway near a copy of Animates, which, if you weren't convinced of enough already, also features a couple of programming glitches that can cause your creature to clip through parts of the environment.
  2. Between an utter lack of interesting activities, ridiculously slow pace, and frequent technical problems, AniMates is one to avoid.
  3. While snuggling up to a handheld video game system may still not be better than cuddling a real kitten, kids are a lot more likely to find success convincing their parents to let them take home a budget priced DS title like Animates over the real-deal.
  4. This game may entertain your kid for about ten minutes, but the slow pace and lack of any real reward system means that Little Billy will put it down and be off chasing a butterfly before you know it.
