by HairyBojeevus Animal Crossing/The Sims hybrid for your Mii
I bought into the hype VIA my social networks. I love Animal Crossing. This game has been described as a perfect game for an Animal Crossing fan.
Basically you have a room in an apartment building. You can acquire neighbors by scanning QR codes from real life/social network friends. You can import Mii's from Mii Maker or create your own from scratch to add your neighbors. These neighbors interact, hang out in each others rooms, build relationships, and even gain compatibility for possibly making a baby. Each character can gain different clothing, interiors, objects, singing talents, catch phrases, and even has their own likes and dislikes with food and clothes. You are rewarded by acting positively with you neighbors and building relationships. As you play, you unlock different locations which allow neighbors to interact in different ways or purchase new items. Sharing pictures is fun as it's real easy to take and share VIA the Sea Plane (which is unlocked shortly into the game).
By using Street & Spot Pass, you can gain new items and give new items to your friends. There is a lot to do in this game, and I have barely scratched the surface.
All in all, I can't wait to get more into the game, and the replay value is high as there is so much to do. Don't forget that a lot of tracking is essential by adding you and your neighbors birth year.

Tomodachi life is what every one is talking about. Your Mii's Your Life your FUN. Besides being in the me Mii plaza and Mii creator they are in a town you name It. Unlock Resturants ,Stores. Similar like you do in Animal Crossing New Leaf people do need to realize Tomodachi was for 3DS,DS in Japan and China before it was in America so this is not really new and Grand for Nintendo. This Game is supposed to like the Cute Version of The Sims with a splash of Animal Crossing New Leaf (ACNL).Make any one you want. Sing Dance, Take pictures, Shop, Go on Café chillax with friends and more. Release date 6-6-14 the funny thing is My mom Pre Orderd my game from Game Stop did!!!THANK YOU MOM!!!Why I say its funny I get all my games from Walmart....
Well I'm done with info hope you enjoyed I said too much..
Rated 10 out of 10 by buggy1 The Nintendo Sims...well not really
I'll start by saying that this game is not the too much like the sims. Of course the virtual life could be related to sims like games, but this is different. The Mii characters you put on your Tomadochi island attend to their own life but you as the overseer, help them make key decisions. For example: how they should propose to the one they love, where they should go on a date, if they should make up with a person they got in a fight or not, and many others. Also, the Miis enjoy playing mini games, making new friends, and messing around with the many items that you acquire. Around the island there are many fun attractions and shops to go to. It is good for short bursts of game play at a time.This game should be purchased because it never really gets old. Also, this title is really like nothing you've ever experience before. It is quirky and different, but in a good way in which everything comes together for an amazing and fun experience. You must play it for yourself.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Mac22c Excellent game, if it's for you.
Now this bizarre game will not be for everyone. An odd sense of humor and the desire to play something outside the box is required. If that is you this game will be a great deal of fun. I purchased this without really knowing too much about and after the first 20 minutes, I was hooked. You start off by making/importing Mii's to bring into your virtual town and learning the ropes of keeping them happy. This includes playing mini games, giving them new attire and even feeding them. As more Mii's are brought into the town is where things get interesting. For instance Mike Tyson is now dating Hillary Clinton in my town. The whole island will eventually open up and you can even visit other players islands much like Animal Crossing. This can be treat all in its own. I went to a town last night where all the Mii's were dressed up like clowns. I didn't stay very long but I'm glad I got see the games weirdness at it's peak. I highly recommend picking this title if your are looking for something a little different.
Rated 9 out of 10 by PhoenixZephyr Like Sims, but not exactly
It is similar to Sims in that you create characters and control/interact with them. However, it is more simple in some aspects and that's what makes it fun. All the characters you create live on an island, interacting with each other, having fun, and doing random things while you watch. You can interfere in some aspects of their lives when they ask for advice, allowing you to control who meets who, to keep people friends, or break them apart, allowing people to become a couple, keeping people isolated, etc. There is plenty of customization with interiors, clothes, hats, barrettes, and different types of food for them to like. Collecting all of them is a blast as new/different items are available each day.
This isn't for everyone though. If you're more into serious RPG games that require a lot of planning and thinking, or like a lot of action, this is not for you. Most of the time, it's silly and ridiculous, but that's part of the appeal.
Rated 8 out of 10 by pmw1985 Not for everyone
I thought I'd post a review since the other one here was....lacking. This is not a game for everyone. This is not Animal Crossing, neither is this The Sims so I wish the comparisons would die down on that. While there is little to no actual gameplay, there are plenty of things to do and plenty of things requiring your input. I've also read reviews that call it boring and stale and to anyone that says that is obviously not putting the time into it. I've checked in every day and new items are constantly available, as well as new events and Nintendo sends items via Spot Pass for you to enjoy. My Mii's are constantly worried about things, fighting with other Mii's or asking me to solve their problems. Since the release, I've put over 12 hours of gameplay in and it is surprisingly in depth. Don't listen to the haters. If you want something casual and funny to play while taking a break from your 'meatier' games- this one is it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by busterbluth Give it a chance!
I had a birthday a few days ago and was given this game by my girlfriend, she knows nothing of games and but knew I loved my 3ds and that this was a new release. I decided to give it a chance since I already owned it, I thought it would be a game like the sims but more for children. I cannot exactly say that it is not exactly that but Nintendo has found a way to make a game like the sims actually enjoyable for me. There is not a large amount of gameplay here, you mostly act as the god of these Miis, where you can see into their dreams, and their lives and conversations, but once in a while able to add in things and also able to edit all of the characters. While this may sound boring it is far from it, nintendo has found a way to make this game incredibly quirky, hilarious, and charming. This will be a game that I will keep going back to for a long while.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Taya3211 Not for Everyone.
This game is silly, quirky, and down right hilarious. But, that is only my opinion. For those looking for serious game play, this game is not for you. You do not get to actually play as the Mii's, but instead act as a deity of sorts, watching over them and making decisions that directly influence their lively hood. This game can either have you sucked in for hours as it did me, or you could only end up playing for 10 minutes everyday to check shops and solve your islanders' problems. So, my point is, this game is definitely not for hardcore gamers who dislike simulation games. If the concept of the game sounds stupid to you, you will most likely not enjoy this game.
Rated 9 out of 10 by crunchycorn Can get boring
This game is so fun. I enjoy it a lot. It has a lot Japanese humor and if you are an anime otaku like me you will enjoy this game a lot. It did start getting boring she i unlocked all of the places and there was much left to do except buy stuff and take care of my Miis. I decided to take a few days off of it because it was so addicting but getting boring. As soon as I got back on I was hooked again. I 101% recommend this to anyone who wants to have a little cute humor! Also it really isn't much like animal crossing.
Rated 10 out of 10 by OkamiStar Silly
This game is really silly. It petty much allows you to SIM up your Miis ans watch them live silly random lives. Tho you do not see them run around everywhere there are different factions where you see them, be it in there rooms, on the beach, or when there are events. Overall its fun in a sense it is amusing.
