I voted 'Its not as good as the other tamas'.

I mean, its pretty cool that there is no max for the amount of items and food and stuff. But, I find the games difficult to complete. The things at the shopping channel are too much, and you never earn enough points. Maybe its just me.

Don't get me wrong, I like my v5... but I like the versions 4.5 and below better.

P.S. My tama just grew into an adult then fell back asleep ...weird, lol. :ph34r:

I love the v5 and especially the Japanese version ^_^ i have both and there isnt much difference except for the outside designs and the antenna.

the only thing i dislike in this newest connection is the fact that they got rid of the weight meter. in the directions it warns you not to let your tamagotchi get too under or overweight, but how are you supposed to be able to tell if there is no weight meter? so im constantly playing games and being sure not to feed it too much just to make sure something bad doesnt happen :hitodetchi: i also kind of wish we could name each tama on the screen, not just the family. that said, i really love the games on this one and the tv shopping is so much better than the regular shop on the other connections! there are so many more features on this one and i absolutely love it :)

the best thing about it is the fact taht you can adjust the contrast on the screen and the pixels go all the way across :furawatchi: its so much more vibrant in my opinion.

right now im playing with my japanese version, my v2, my v4.5 and my Morino :lol:

u said u could adjust the contrast... HOW!?! that sounds so cool but i don't know how.

:furawatchi: :huh: It's okay but at first I didn't have a clue how to play the games.
Then I worked the TV game out but I still couldnt work the teacups game out.
I just worked it out today, you have to pour tea into the biggest cup, press 'a' button for the left cup 'b' button for the right cup but DONT press 'c' as it cancels your game! Also the game points are very low, the highest amount of mooney I have ever won is 70gp and that is not a lot! Also the shop sells very expensive things, I paid 1,500gp for and item and it turned out only to be a dessert (snack!!!)!!!

u said u could adjust the contrast... HOW!?! that sounds so cool but i don't know how.

You can adjust the contrast by going to the clock screen and pressing B while holding C. Then use the A and B button to adjust contrast and the C button to exit.

The maximum amount of Gotchi points you can earn from any of the four minigames is 100G.

I think that the V5 was released half-done. It crashes, has useless features, and is (in my opinion) a Entama clone with 3 characters. I much prefer the early tama, such as the V1, the P1 and the P2.

Hooo man...I'm gonna get some flaming for this!

I like to leave my tamas on at night and pause them before school the next morning. With the V5, you can't pause it while the tamas sleeping, and I leave for school around 7:30! The Tams usually wake up at 8:00. And it takes forever to reset the clock and then pause it! I can pause my V4 any time I want to.
Also with the V5, three tams are bouncing around the screen, but you only really care for the middle one. :furawatchi:
I don't like the fact that you can't officially name the V5 Tams. On the older versions, you could say "Oh, my little darling Tammy is calling me." And on the V5..."Oh, my three little pixil anamations are calling me." On the V5 the Tams seem less alive to me.

Actually on the v5 the Tamagotchi go to bed at 9pm and wake up at 7am. Which I find is a good thing because my Tamagotchi give me a reason NOT to sleep in.

Yes, it's getting a bit dull, I wish it had the old menus! It's so impersonal - you can't name your little tamas, can't get jobs and things. It sounds really good but...slightly boring!
v4, v2 and v4.5 re my faves :puroperatchi:

I love my v5! but the thing is i hate that v5 cant connect with v1,2,3,4 or 4.5 and i hate having to log in and log out after 1 game on the site!!

other then that- I LOVE IT!!

I love it when you get to 60% bonding and the C button animation are your family of Tamas kissing one another on the cheek. <3
So far, I'm really loving my V5. Sometimes I wish the items were a bit better and it was easier to earn points, but I really enjoy my new Tamagotchi.

I find it rather good. :)

Sometimes getting certain families that you don't want can be irritating, and trying to get the desired family can get very irritating too, because there are certain ways to get individual families.

The games can confuse you if you lost the instruction manual or something like that.

When I first heard that you have to go to the Travel Channel to pause it, I thought you had to get a certain amount of GP, but now I realised you don't. ;) That could be confusing for people that are considering buying the V5 and looked on the topics here on how to pause the V5, etc.

The most irritating thing about the V5 is the bonding percentage. It takes a long time to get 100%, and then you can FINALLY marry.

It's not my favorite version. I prefer the V1, V2, and V3 out of all of them.

If I give it an overall rating, I'd have to say a 6.9/10. :(

I dont like it very much, first they did not release any designs that were gender related! Most of them are for girls (if not all of them.:D I bought the v4.5 purple one with the lava lamp like design on it off the internet(most gender related in my opinion)XD. Secondly when I am playing it i dont feel like im taking care of an actual pet but just playing some sort of a game _, one of the things i like about tams is that it feels like you are taking care of an actual pet that you can take out, you dont get to name them individually, pausing is a task in itself, they dont go to work/school, the games are not as good as on previous models and you earn very little points, it wont interact with previous versions of tamas, when connecting they got rid of the option to just visit another tama, i still dont understand the discipline thingy, nor do i understand the "Bonds Per ?" statues on the meter menu, and on the website you have to log in and out to do everything. I loved every update from v1 except this one. Infact the only good change in this tama is that the graphics use the entire screen....thats it o and they changed the functions of the third button during game play, it doesnt work as a control button but just cancels you out of the game which is another feature im not liking!
V5 is like virtual life, than a pet.

I agree with this quote, its like a v1 but more complex, i hope the v6 is better, and I dont get much gp.
