    A cute stress-reliever.

    Being an owner of AC City Folk on the Wii, I enjoy this franchise. But the odd controls and home-console functionality meant that I never played it that often. This game takes many of City Folk's problems away. AC works perfectly on a dual-screen handheld because I can check on it whatever time of day I want, and not just at home. Now I finally have the incentive to actually play every day. They call this game "New Leaf" for a reason. It starts out similar to the old games; Rover welcomes you on a train, Tom Nook puts you into debt, etc. However, there's now a big turn in gameplay. Much rather than just being a mere villager, you now are the mayor of your own town. Now you can make public works projects, set ordinances, and have a cute dog named Isabelle as your secretary. There's all sorts of things to do. You can go fishing, talk with your fellow villagers, go shopping, pull weeds (WARNING: Weeds easily trigger people with OCD. Proceed with caution.), and more. If you need a break, you can veg out at the tropical Tortimer Island. This game is brimming with content. The 3DS also has amiibo functionality where you can get free items and villagers via amiibo cards and figures. All my useless cards were sitting around, gathering dust, so this is a great way to get one specific villager you want. Overall, this game is brimming with content. It has aged very well throughout it's lifetime. Those who are into vigorous gaming will probably get bored easily. However, I personally use it to relieve stress. If I get angry about a game, Animal Crossing will do the trick. While it doesn't really have a main "end goal," I still enjoy this time-killer. Many are upset that it's been several years since a real AC game has been released, but at least we can enjoy this gem until the time comes. This is yet another great game that doesn't even cost more than $20.

    I haven't completed this game, so my review is based on first impressions (or about 5-10 hours of gameplay). Then again, I'm not sure this game even has an end... This is my first experience with Animal Crossing, and it's proven to be among the most relaxing games I've played. I must say that the formula works well on the 3DS. It's something you can choose to really dig into, but I've found it also works well if you just play for an hour or so each day. Time in-game reflects real time, so if you're a night owl, you may find it somewhat annoying that shops close over the course of the evening and don't re-open until the next morning. That said, collecting items, outfits, furniture, and even helping the townsfolk with their basic "get me this item" tasks is surprisingly enjoyable. A nice, low-pressure game that should appeal to fans craving for a more laid-back slice-of-life experience. Also, Isabelle is super cute.

    Portable Bonsai Village

    A welcome addition to the 3DS library, this edition of Animal Crossing combines many features of the GameCube and DS versions into a familiar package. If you're a fan of the series, you won't be disappointed. If you're new to Animal Crossing, this real-time town simulator will provide you with countless hours of relaxing play, as you slowly shape your tiny village. Unlike most simulators, like Sim City or the Sims series, Animal Crossing grows without you. Villagers move in and out without your input, building their houses where they wish, while you're away from the game. Like a bonsai tree, daily pruning and attention to the town's growth-changes will result in a kind of natural beauty you won't find elsewhere. The only thing the game lacks is space. This version's town is smaller than the GameCube version, owing perhaps to many of the shops and buildings like the museum having been moved to their own separate zone, kind of like a "Main Street". Nevertheless, I find myself wishing for a way to extend my town's borders.

    This game is a few years old now, so the price has gone down considerably. It was worth the full original MSRP, so there's never been a better time to pick it up. Back when this game came out, my girlfriend and I used to play together almost every evening while we were long-distance. It 's a chill and low pressure way to spend some time with friends, or by yourself to relax! This game is more than appropriate for kids (been playing games from this series since I was 10) but it does require quite a bit of reading. At their own pace though! Would be a really fun bonding activity for a parent and child, as it's simple enough for non-techy parents to play. You will however, need your own console and copy of the game. You don't need any amiibo to play this game, but they are compatible and do add something to the experience. You can unlock items and choose which animal villagers live in your town with the figures and cards associated with the Animal Crossing line. Again though, this game was out for years before amiibo came along, so they're fully optional!

    Animal Crossing: New Leaf is a game that both demands a lot and yet nothing at all from you. The game is really what you make of it. It can easily draw you in and have you logging back in day after day to check on your community. Animal Crossing: New Leaf is a game that you could play every single day for a year and still be interested, or you could set it down for a month, pick it up, and continue right where you left off. It is one of the best games out there for a relaxing and charming experience that keeps you coming back for more. So far, I have been addicted to it since I started playing it 3 months ago and have hardly been able to go a week without checking on my town.

    Design your clothes, your furniture, your home and more in this installment of the Animal Crossing series. As Mayor you will make friends with animal townpeople, earn MEOW coupons to buy items, pass ordinances and finish public works projects. Players can find different animals (even under water), grow flowers & fruit, and dig up fossils. Visit the campground, the museum, nearby Tortimer Island, and many other locations. Tons of opportunities to build and decorate your world, similar to but more in-depth than Animal Jam. The game can also be expanded with Amiibo cards and figures, each unique character providing new bonuses, accessories, locations, or game modes. My daughter spent hours...and HOURS playing this during Christmas break!

    I dig the animal crossing games when I just want something mellow and relaxing. If you have never played any of the games before this is a great place to start. It's a fun life simulation game kinda like harvest Moon but less stressful... At least that's my opinion. At first glance it doesn't seem like the type of game that could keep you coming back. But there's something about it that will pull you in over and over to check in on the town and characters. If you're interested in mellow gameplay or life simulation than this is for you. If you want excitement and difficult gameplay than you should probably take a pass on this game.

    This game is beautiful and full of character. Like the previous game, it feels like you're playing a Miyazaki movie! The combat is simple, but rewards and punishes based on how well you pay attention to your team, equipment, and enemy strengths and weaknesses. The pacing is fast, and it never feels like you're stuck grinding in one place too long. Each new area is beautiful with its own array of characters, styles, and amazing atmospheric music. It flows nicely, but nothing feels rushed. Exploring, talking to people, completing side quests, and managing your kingdom is really fun and oddly relaxing. All in all a wonderful game!
