    Very cute game for kids or adult. If you enjoy Dog island or nintendogs you should love this game. More in depth then either, kind of a nice blend of the two. For 20 bucks you cant beat it.

    While everything points to this being a Nintendogs clone, Vita Pets aims to be much more. Part pet sim/part adventure, you not only feed and pet your dog, but he or she also begs you to take them out on an adventure based on books you find on your bookshelf.

    A more than solid base to build a fuzzy franchise on. A bit thin on breeds, and the dog voices are rather annoying. [August 2014, p80]
  3. I’d say it’s a little bit better. It has the best graphics, you can hear your puppy talk, and you can go on a little adventure. There’s no buggie, in case I haven’t mentioned that, but it’s still pretty good.
