Customize your Mii characters' lives, and witness the unpredictable drama that unfolds as they rock out, eat donuts, and ride the ups and downs of romance.

Something new and unique can be done at each location, so expect the unexpected every time you check in on your islanders.
  • Create Mii characters by customizing all aspects of their appearances, and bring them to life by customizing their personalities and voices.
  • There are all sorts of activities that you can do with your Mii characters. Find out what they like by watching their reactions to the gifts, foods, and items you give them. Play a variety of mini-games with your islanders or watch them perform songs live on stage. You can also solve their problems to help them level up and unlock new gift items that you can give your Mii characters.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun, but gets boring quickly I was really excited when I got this game, I couldn't wait to make Miis of my friends and myself and have fun in-game lives with them. But after a few weeks, it started getting boring. The major milestone is having a child and growing them up; after that, things are all repetitive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mii life. So it's basically a game where your miis can live on an island. You can create miis just for the island as well. They can have children who either go off or live on the island. You can buy food, clothes, hats and interiors. You can collect trinkets which you can sell if you get duplicates. There's a music hall thing but I don't use it. You can receive special food or clothes from streetpass either from Nintendo or people who also play the game. You also can get special items to use that your characters will give you (such as medicine for a cold). You can customize their voices. You can play mini games such as matching cards. Good for kids (there is no explicit thing about the baby besides 'we were thinking of having a baby' so judge as you will), fun for Nintendo fans and great for either people who want simple game to pick up and play sometimes or those who casually play games like Candy Crush Saga.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not my cup of tea... Playing this game is like having a pet fish. You have fun at first that you but than you slowly stop playing it because it get really boring. You're better off playing Animal Crossing or some thing else...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Game Of Watching At first I didn't want this game, until I saw a Youtube Let's Play of it (Let's Play means someone plays a game on camera and posts it to Youtube) then I really wanted it. Once I got it, I was probably addicted for a week, then didn't mess with it sense. You see, the problem with this game is you don't do much. All you do is help with Mii problems and stuff like that. I'm getting ahead of myself though, let's back it up some. The basic story is your kinda like god in that you help and observe the Miis you put on this island (insert name of island here) The island starting off has apartment buildings for your Miis to live in, and a few other things but it's not much. You have to unlock all the features of the island as you play and complete the necessary tasks needed to unlock the buildings on the island. So, what all can you do in this game? Well............um...........you can observe.........and uh.......buy stuff for your Mii people........and watch them take baths and stuff (You don't see anything though).......yeah, there's really not much you do. That doesn't mean you'll be completely bored though. You can check up on your Miis in your apartments and if there's an icon on a window, a Mii has a problem that you can solve. There's different colors that mean different problems and I'll go over all of them now. Black is the color you'll likely see the most, black is basic problems mostly resulting in buying something for them, like food, clothes, ect. It's not always that though, it could be that there sick as well or something else. Orange means that they either wanna be friends with someone, or that they got in a fight with someone. It's basically friendship related problems. Green is the second color you'll probably see the most and this means they wanna play a game with you. Weather it's a boring quiz, or memory match, the minigames are nothing special. Pink is the color of love. This means that a Mii wants to be a couple with someone, or marriage, or, when married, babies. Yep, an E rated game teaching kids the wonders of babies. I heard that Sims 3 for the DS didn't allow babies cause of the E rating, but Tomodachi Life said "We don't care, we want Miis to have kids." Getting back on track, don't worry parents, there isn't any hint of the you know in this game, they just say they want a baby, then next time you play, boom, there's the baby. Moving on, the final color is blue, this is the depression color, and you'll have to cheer the Mii up by giving them gifts (the gifts that you get from the Miis when you solve there problems) to lower the depression bar. Solving Miis problems will level them up, and you can give them gifts, catchphrases, songs, and even money to go to space. Aside from solving problems, there's not really much else you can do so you'll be really bored if there's no problems to solve. (so the more Miis you make, the better) This game does have the Animal Crossing aspect of real life time and events however, and certain events will happen depending on the time, but the only 2 events that keep me from getting bored are the Rap Battles and Tomodachi Quest (Which is basically a simplified version of Final Fantasy, you know, the classic NES ones without the guns) but other than that, this game's boring without problems, and that's the biggest downfall. Other than that, the game is funny and has random quirky humor that'll make you smile. Plus, you can make your celebrity crush and hope you can make your Mii and your crush marry and have friends so you can gloat to your friends (Or make Katara from Last Airbender and......oh oops, forgot the magical keyboard typed everything I said [Don't ask, I don't know]) While it's interesting seeing your Miis live there life on the island, and the fact this game has it's funny random moments, the boringness (is that a word? Probably not) of the game, and the constant repeated lines when Miis have conversations and rap battles take away from the fun value of it. My suggestion, if you want this game, try out the demo first, and if you think you'll still want the full version, get it. It's still fun, but maybe not meant to be played all day like I've been playing it. Well, see ya.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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 4 out of 5 by from Awesome This game is amazing. All it needs is the people need to speak less monotone-ish, the option to sing the tune of whatever song you want to sing and the ability to add as many townspeople as you want.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What a great game! This game is fantastic! You can put anyone you want in the game, and lots of funny, ridiculous things happen. Gameplay can continue on for life. Tomodachi Life brings the "Life" into simulation games like these. Ive had the game since the game came out, and couldn't be more happier with it. Great for kids and adults alike, I give this game a 9/10!
