"Needs quite high spec to run, but daughter loves it" -
I bought this for my 7 year old a few months ago and she plays it a lot. You are the manager of a rescue centre and you have to build up your reputation by looking after animals, working your way up from guinea pigs to rabbits, cats, dogs and horses. Sometimes it can be a bit frustratingly slow to get to a certain target, but she has really enjoyed it. Two words of caution when buying - it needs a fairly high-spec computer to run, or it runs very slow, the graphics are quite big. Our kids have old PCs (5 years plus) and one of them struggles to run it. Also, the manager in the game is a woman (and a rather disturbingly Lara Croft proportioned blonde to boot) so if you are buying for an animal-loving boy, think over whether they will be happy to have a female avatar. It's a limited programme, and would get two stars if it was full price, but at this price it was 3 stars of value for the amount of hours of fun she got from it.

This was very disappointing and a total waste of money. We gave it to our child as a christmas present but after one use it went straight to the charity shop.
