  1. The Dog Island is a good game for novice gamers. Kids will love the open world system and the fun missions. Even though this title will probably make regular gamers roll their eyes, it is a great beginners RPG.
  2. Hats off to Ubisoft for taking a step in a completely different direction.

    The Dog Island is a seriously odd title, but its style, attention to detail, and overall offering as a kid-friendly, casual adventure/RPG makes it a solid choice for the younger Wii crowd.
  4. Vom-inducing adorable RPG-superlite that will be a good way to introduce younglings to the genre, whilst simultaneously making everyone else want to sneer at dogs on the way home. [JPN Import]

    This game was certainly fun. The game mechanics and graphics style show that it's intended to be played by younger gamers, but despiteThis game was certainly fun. The game mechanics and graphics style show that it's intended to be played by younger gamers, but despite it's simplicity, there is no lack of fun. The game can be easily shared by both a parent and a child. Animal lovers will be very delighted by the game, and dog lovers even more so. Despite being based on a popular license, the game works well with the license. Gamers seeking a more mature and gritty experience should look elsewhere. Gamers seeking something fun and cute will be welcomed. Full Review »
