There's a lot that you can unlock, all the enemies have one alternate costume that you can get, even your dog Hewie has alternate costumes... including one that turns him into a stuffed animal... or regular German Shepard colors (which makes him stronger, but also harder to control).
The game is relatively easy, but at the same time I never really found myself bored with the game. I breezed through in about 9 and 1/2 hours, but with all the extras it's a game that's definitely meant to be played through multiple times. Hewie the dog is what really makes the game... they keep track of your relationship with him. You can kick him, not feed him, and really abuse him until he dies if you want (that's one of the alternate endings) or you can play ball with him, pet him... I mean Nintendogs has got nothing on Hewie.
One other interesting thing is that the way the game is set up, it's really never exactly the same each time you play through. Events don't have to happen in some exact sequence... and different things will happen in different situations. It's one of those games that's just good, but not great.
