    I got the game thought it was awesome and taught my dog every trick in the game, I lost my video game priviledges for 2 weeks then I play it again and the 3 weeks I spent playing 5 hours a day was wasted, he had forgotten all his tricks (and his name.) And when I got him they said he was smart. Lame game.

  1. There’s more to be got out of this new kind of play than Nintendo has found this time around, and some of it could be better implemented. But, for now, it offers an experience that can’t be matched. [July 2005, p.89]
  2. Nintendogs shows its attention to detail in the main game modes in so many different ways. [JPN Import]
