Despite some navigation challenges, Puppies 3D is a fun game with nice graphics and plenty of things to do. Kids will love walking around town with their puppy on a leash, meeting new friends and going shopping. The puppies are adorable, and it's just cute to watch them fetch a ball or flying disc. It's even cooler to play with your puppy virtually in your own living room using the AR (augmented reality) cards that came with your Nintendo 3DS. Teaching them tricks can be a bit tedious, especially if you're eager to get it done, but you'll want to pull out the dog treats when you finally see your little puppy rolling over or shaking paws for the first time. This is a gem of a game, only slightly hampered by an overcomplicated icon system.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
