    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A game like Petz Dogz 2!!! This is a really good game!!!! The only thing is that it would be a little scary for little kids. Here's the storyline: you start in a town, the mailman is waiting at the dock for the captain of the ship to mail a letter. (by the way, all of the characters are dogs) when the captain comes, he said that the letter got wet and the address is hard to make out; so the (new) mailman asks a neighbor if he can read the letter, he tells him what the address is, (you pick the players breed, name and if its a she or a he, also you get to pick out a sister or a brother (he/she has to be the same color and breed)) after that the mailman goes to the players house. The rest you'll have to figure out yourself. The only problem for little kids, it can be as scary as Petz Dogz 2 (wii) but the scary part comes near the ending.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dog poo in the backyard I haven't played too far into this game yet but from what I played it wasn't anything special. I like the dogs though there cute and the story line is a little sad but kinda cool. You have to get pass other animals in the backyard like bears and alligators.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LUV THIS GAME! This game is sooooo cute! After i played it through i helped my little sister play it and we both had a blast together! Anyway, this game is great overall, the controls are pretty simplistic, and i thought the grapihcs were really great! Even though this game is supposed to be for children around 7-10 i really enjoyed it and I'm 16! The cute puppies and the storyline really kept me playing this game and you will want to too! Many people i know are hard core gamers that play call of duty and gears of war, THEY even liked this game! The gaem starts out when you are in this cute little puppy town and your brother or sister is very sick. (You get to choose if your a boy or a girl, and what gender your sibling is.) Then she faints at a festival and the docter says she can't be treated. You decide to go to the dog island to get a special flower that will cure your sister. Sounds good? Buy it know!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Cutest Game Around In The Dog Island video game, the player gets to choose their own dog from 48 dog types, give it a name, and select its gender. Once you create your dog, you are told that your sibling is sick. Your dog's mother calls the doctor, but the doctor cannot cure your sibling. He tells you to go to an island called The Dog Island and see a doctor called Doctor Potan and ask him to come back to you hometown of Puroro. I found that this game was totally addicting and that I would play for many hours at a time. For people who love action and adventure games, than The Dog Island is not for you. While it is an insanely cute game, it is not all that challenging. Your tasks are mainly to help other dogs in need. These dogs will usually require you to find an item for them by sniffing. What got me most interested in the game was the awesome storyline. I played the game for hours on end because I was so curious to know what was going to happen next. It actually made me want to finish the game. I found the saddest part in the game came at the end. I won't reveal that though, that's for you to figure out! This game is wonderful! If I was asked if I wanted some kind of sequel to The Dog Island, I would totally say yes!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The cutest game you'll ever play I'm a 17 year old girl who just loves anything thats adorable. The 'AWW~' factor happeneds alot with me. This game is sooo cute, I cant help but play more. The music is uplifting and really complemants the game, I enjoy the opening song the most, its so cute! You can be any kind of dog you want and in some select breads you can pick the color too. You can also custimize your dog to your own personal style which I find is a cute extra to buy with your rewards from the quests you do. The game itself is based on sniff and fetch missions which make the game cute. The controls are easy so that anyone can play and not get stuck with controls, if you forget one you can just go to the menu and you can find it there. If you like the dogs then this game is for you, I would recomend this game to anyone who loves dogs even if they dont have one. You are left in constant 'AW' over the cuteness of the game.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Let it be what it is and you'll love it First off let me just say that I'm probably not the target audience for this game. I'm a 30 something male with no children who traditionally loves adventure games akin to Zelda, Mario Galaxy, Okami etc. But a video game based on the small dogs with oversized heads franchise (known to some as The Dog, to others like me as STRANGE RATIO!) was just too much to pass up. So I picked it up. At ** bucks this game is totally worth the purchase. Compared to other games of the 'adventure' genre, it's not very original, but the overall cute factor really does make up for it. Essentially the entire game is comprised of various Fetch Quests which involve your character (you can choose to be one of forty odd breeds of dogs like Beagle, Rottweiler, Basset Hound, Poodle, Akita, Husky- the list goes ON and ON and ON) learning how to sniff and running around the Dog Island finding things for other characters, all in the name of finding a cure for your brother/sister (you can decide the gender), who is a non-playable character that gets sick at the beginning of the game. There are a few varied activities such as fishing and mild puzzle solving (not really- they sort of hold your hand through anything resembling a challenge) but for the most part there's a lot of sniffing and digging. It's a Dog Island, after all. For example, the Doctor on the island (a very likeable Beagle named Potan) will say "fetch me these three herbs from the field and they can be used to help your little sibling" and he tells you what each herb smells like, and you go out and look for it. Your sniff meter gets higher as you get closer and once you're right on top of it, you dig in the ground and out it comes. Before you can find the second herb though, you'll need the nurse's help, who herself requires you to find her something altogether different. And so on and so forth. The Dog Island isn't a technological breakthrough or innovative in concept but its charm makes it a game worth playing nonetheless. With customizable hats, glasses etc you can dress up your dog in any number of different ways and you can name him anything you want too. The other characters he meets along the way are equally cute and varied, and the music is surprisingly catchy, and harmonically stimulating. Tuneful acoustic guitars and nice rhythms, even if it is somewhat compressed. It might have been nice to have utilized the nunchuck attachment for more sophisticated interface, (as it stands it's basically a point-and-click adventure), and camera manipulation is a little too sensitive for my tastes (moves quite quickly and sometimes gives me a headache) but as a budget title, I really can't complain. The overall experience is still a fun one. And, no kidding, I catch myself saying "Awww" out loud every once in awhile too because those dogs are just that cute. I haven't played all the way through the game yet, but despite its relatively standard (read: predictable) story line I find the characters to still be compelling and fully intend to play all the way through.
