In anticipation of this, we have been trying out and renting DS, Wii and Sony PS3 games. With a 9 year old girl and 5 year old boy, it is rare that we find games that entertain both children.
We got the Petz Fantasy - Moonlight Magic game and it was a hit with the younger of the two Barreto kids. The first weekend we had it - Evan played it non-stop at a wedding.
My kids love the Petz series because we are no pet family and any games that allow you to 'care' for pets is a hit with my kids.
Three weeks later, it is still Evan's go to game.
Here is his point of view on the Petz Fantasy Nintendo DS...
"First of all, the game is kind of hard to learn but when you learn it, it's better. I like all of the animals that you can unlock as you play. You feed them, help them play and wash them - kind of like of real pets only they are not dogs and stuff but mythical creatures. My favorite part is my first dragon, even when his bars are not filled up he can go to magic world"
Essentially the game is simple. When you start, you play with a pet and you have a limited time to get the pet fed, washed and play a game in order to earn a trip to "magic world" where you can earn lots of points and unique adventures.
Additionally, there are codes for online play that we have yet to take advantage of but it appears to be randomly given and then if you don't use them at the time they are given, we have yet to find them again when starting a new game.
We recommend this game for the younger set of DS gamers and you can get it here at Amazon.com
