Take your healing hands and kind spirit down under! THQ's educational vet game is back, but is the latest game new enough to stop it from being repeatitive?

There are many animal games for the DS floating around, but not many of them will actually prepare you for having a real pet. The Paws & Claws Pet Vet series has always been great for learning about the things that makes our furry friends ill and how to remedy it. Now, with Paws & Claws Pet Vet Australian Adventure, you can save and learn about the unique creatures of the southern continent.


A Different Kind of Vet

In the game, you play the role of a vet. There is not much story to it, you simply run a vet clinic and every day you get a report of injured or sick animals on your PDA and you head out on your SUV to heal them.


You assess sick animals by tapping the touch screen at various points until you get a reaction. Once the diagnosis is complete, you will be instructed on how to heal the animal. Sometimes you can just cure the creature on the spot, but sometimes you will need to take it back to the clinic for surgery.


You earn money for healing animals and the cash can be used to buy more supplies or to expand your business. Eventually, you will lead safaris and can earn cash that way as well.


Limited Choices on the Small Continent

While there are a lot of clothes to choose from for your character, the actual look of the character cannot be changed much. In terms of animals, there are only six different animals that you interact with, including horses, koala bears, kangaroos, and wombats.


Most of the time you will be following the tasks listed out for you on your PDA. The game gets repeatitive pretty fast, but the entire experience is still very educational. This game is recommended for aspiring vets and animal lovers in general.

    This is a topic about developers The only reason I wanted to post this is because I wanted to tell people that I am creating a game called Legacy Of Swords and a book called Legacy Of Swords, this will probably be for developers to chat and ask about things, as there is no separate chat rooms.
