Its terrible

I bought this game for my younger brother thinking it would be good for him but it has taught him about humping which you see the animals do to each other I had to have the talk with him this early because of this outrageous game. Rape, sex, humping its all in there don't buy this game for your children or siblings its just terrible!

Encourages Anti-American Messages!

This game encourages anti-American messages because it is a clear allegory to the Border Patrol, as Swiper is an honest agent fighting to defend his homeland while Dora represents the flood of communism. The monkey is just a freak. Disgusting language such as "h*la" and "adi*s" is one of Dora's favorite words, although I don't understand these words because I only speak American, the only language you need. I am baffled as to why President Bush did not ban this game under his moral leadership, although I understand that human-fish relations are at an all time high.* *satire

Great for Pre-readers!!

My daughter LOVES dogs and has seen the Dora Puppy DVD so many times she can quote dialog. This game is wonderful for pre-readers who are just learning to play video games that require reaching goals (i.e. earning tokens to buy the puppy stuff from the store). I like that that my daughter is learning to save token for items that she wants to buy, caring for a pet and addition/subtraction of tokens. There are parts of the game that my daughter participate in by blowing or talking into the mic (optional, but I haven't told her that) which has been helpful for articulation exercises. Overall, a great first game.
