    Wow...and this is the company EA is hot for?

    And by the way, when did Dora become a mermaid?

    I believe it is crap games like this that cause the GOOD games to get pushed back.

    Well, the GOOD games wouldn't be as good as they turn out to be if they weren't pushed back.

    You don't want to be disappointed by a half-assed game [​IMG]

    Games aren't always still in development when their release date slips. Nintendo can't manufacture carts for every game at once, so good games that aren't expected to be huge sellers sometimes get pushed way back even after they are finished so that more copies of Petz: Babiez can be shoveled onto store shelves.

    That is EXACTLY my point. Besides, I would say that a great percentage of DS games are "half-assed". Especially these shovelware titles.

    Sorry guys but this game definitely does not suck...
    3+ target group is on the spot. Same goes with the Diego game.
    Entertaining, educational and is really playable by the given age range.

    Compared to those other games that says 3+, this one actually has some effort.
    Even thinks of those who are not able to fully read yet, giving full audio support.

    [edit] Quite a lot of shovelwares for kids out there, but the Dora and Diego ones for the DS are not part of that list. [​IMG]

    Well, there's a moment in every girl's life when they develop a little fish tail... and they become a mermaid.

    Or so I've been told.

    I can't believe how short this game is... I sat with my 5 year old and played through it tonight and it took them literally half an hour if that to complete it!

    The game and presentation isn't bad but I think it really sucks that Joe Public Parent would pay for something so short.
