Petz: Dogz 2 is another game in Petz series. Just as its predecessors, this game was prepared with a view of the youngest fans of video games. As the title suggests, the game lets you look after dogs of many common breeds.
You start the game by choosing a puppy. PC version of the game offers 7 most common dog breeds. These include boxers and huskies. You have to look carefully after your pet, caring for its basic needs, but also play with it and teach it new tricks.
An important feature is customization of the appearance of your dog, as well as of the setting. As for the former, you select the animal coloration and buy hilarious outfits. It is worth adding that the most interesting items are being unlocked along with in-game progress. Some of them give the animals new abilities. Besides, collecting enough of them unlocks new rooms in the house.
PC edition has several extra attractions, which are absent in other game versions. First and foremost it is Fantasy Breedz, which lets you mate completely different species (e.g. a dog and a zebra). Another novelty is a journal, where you can note the most important information. You can also take pictures of your pets and then print them.
Visually, Petz: Dogz 2 does not lag behind similar games of the genre. Animal models are in 3D. You give commands using on-screen icons.
