    Ok, I know I’m a little old to be playing this, but at 65 and all that is going on this country let alone the world, I can honestly say it is a great escape. It’s simple, cute, fun, and creative. I have been a gaming grandma since 1981 when I was introduced to a computer game called Zork created at MIT, I believe. That game got me hooked on computers and games in general and since then with the birth of 4 grandchildren that I could introduce games too, it’s been quite a ride. When I first played Animal Crossing “Wild World” I got hooked. I’m not a “shoot ’em up” gamer. I like adventure games and this game offers me that playful time of creating a town, meeting nice critters, build houses, bank “bells”, and just have a fun moment where the arthritis doesn’t hurt, the world is a better place and I can just be retired. As for children playing this game, they will come to understand that work has it’s rewards, paying your bills brings you a better house, gardening makes your world prettier, sharing your finds with the museum in town is community service. It’s just an all around feel good game for all ages. Another little caveat is I am playing it on my new 3D DS. Enjoy!!!

    An Absolute Must-Have For Any Animal Crossing Fan, June 9, 2013

    I was a huge Animal Crossing fan on the GameCube back in high school. So much so that I would wake up two to three hours early some days so I could play some before I had to catch the bus. I don’t know what it was exactly that sold me so hard, but when I think of my most fond gaming memories from back then, Animal Crossing is top of the list. My siblings and I used to FIGHT over who’s turn it was to play.

    There have been several times were I went back, picked up my old copy, and tried to play again. Only to end up doing the turnip cheat, or time shifting like crazy and just pretty much picking weeds for the majority of my play time. I often found myself saying “what was it I loved so much after all?” and it was never quite the same. I tried Wild World, and never really could get into it, never tried the original DS version.

    I was so excited for New Leaf this time LAST June that I pre-ordered it right away. I got absurdly lucky and got my copy 4 days early this year.. And I wanted to write a review on it 5 hours into playing, I loved it that much. In case there was someone out there going “oh, I loved the original but is it worth it?” YES. YES and YES.

    I love this game. I cannot find one thing I do not like. It is absolutely charming. The graphics are adorable. They play true to the Animal Crossing feeling, and in my opinion look far better than Wild World did on my flat screen on the screen of my Pikachu 3DS XL. The level of customization is FAR superior than that to original Animal Crossing. I especially like being able to change the color of furniture. I love the wigs, the endless outfit options, changing your hair.. I feel like Nintendo really paid attention to all the little things that were wrong with the older games and fixed it.

    This game is wonderful. I would buy every Animal Crossing fan out there a copy if I could afford it. I have so many happy memories and smiles playing this game it’s actually kind of silly. I love the cheesey little lines when you catch a bug or a fish. The diving system is neat. There’s even a great way to make a lot of bells without having to time shift like crazy and spend hours picking weeds.

    Pros: Incredibly customizable, adorable, plesant background music, a nice change of pace getting to be The Mayor for once!, you get to pick your town layout, all the shops are together on Main Street (aside from Re-Tail, which is also fantastic Flea Market feature), AND SO MUCH MORE.
    Cons: Pockets too small. But they always are. I want bottomless pockets, who doesn’t? 😛

    New Leaf, Old Tree, June 9, 2013
    = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
    This review is from: Animal Crossing: New Leaf (Video Game)

    Let it be known that between RPG grind-fests, oddball art games and the latest AAA titles, I enjoy an unhealthy amount of “Animal Crossing.” The last portable incarnation, “Wild World”, easily received hundreds of hours of my attention, and despite its myriad of problems, it remains one of the most memorable gaming experiences I’ve ever had. But in 2013, many of the clunky interface issues and limited span of things to do simply will not fly in a modern game. That’s why I’m greatly overjoyed that Nintendo has definitely improved the AC mechanics in as many ways possible without changing the core experience here. Make no mistake, “Animal Crossing: New Leaf” is more of the same, but delivered in the best possible way.

    There’s not much by way of “story” here, as expected. Your custom character arrives at your custom town (the layout of which you can select at the beginning of the game) to discover that he/she is now the mayor of the town. After a brief rundown of basic game mechanics with your perky (read: adorable) secretary Isabelle, you’re set loose in a town filled with talking, anthropomorphic animals. Over the course of real-world years, you’re expected to expand local businesses, improve local agriculture, and turn your home into a sprawling mansion filled with rare items.

    If you’ve played an AC game, you know the drill. The conniving Tom Nook screws you over (he does it worse than ever here, but I won’t spoil) at the beginning of the game, you pay off your debt to him, your house gets upgraded, rinse, repeat. All the while, you make friends, fish, water plants, hunt bugs and dig up fossils that can sold or donated to the museum. This time around, though, there’s a flea market where you can set prices for items, and buy stuff from other townsfolk. The addition of the store adds an interesting element to the game, as you find yourself going back and forth between stores, seeing where you’ll get the better deals. It’s a nifty little mechanic that adds a new level of depth to the game.

    While this does seem like an old hat of a game on paper, it’s all about the execution, which is where “New Leaf” truly excels. The controls are tighter than they’ve ever been, thanks to a completely retooled interface. Gone are the days of having to go into menus to dig out equipment; switching between nets, shovels, watering cans, etc, is now allocated to the D-Pad, making it much more convenient to do what you want, when you want to do it. Also welcome are little graphical changes, such as shimmering flowers to indicate you’ve watered them for the day, and birds that perch atop bulletin boards to indicate a new message. Little things like this help make the game more streamlined.

    Another great thing about the game are the enhanced internet capabilities. Visiting your friends’ towns is back, of course, but the biggest draw here is the ability to mingle with players from around the world on a tropical island. You can see what their towns look like, among other things, which is a first for the franchise. Then there’s the “Dream Suite”, which lets you upload a “dream” of your town to the internet for other players to explore, and the Happy Home Showcase, which lets you see the homes of other players you’ve met via StreetPass. This is the most online entry in the franchise yet, and it’s nice to see in Nintendo embracing internet play finally; it definitely bodes well for the upcoming “Smash Bros”, after “Brawl” had such an abysmal online mode.

    This is also the best-looking AC yet, with beautiful textures that easily trump “City Folk”. Water glistens and fluidly moves, characters have elaborate and varied animations, and every detail of the landscape is rendered with beautiful clarity. 3D helps to add an extra level of depth to the game, but other than that, it’s actually one of the most unremarkable usages of the feature I’ve seen in a first-party 3DS title. On the audio front, we have an incredibly safe soundtrack. It’s pretty and relaxing, and one of the best in the series, but it’s definitely very similar to other entries, and it doesn’t rock the boat in too many ways. In my opinion, it didn’t need to, but a little more variety would have been nice.

    Nintendo has easily made the best “Animal Crossing” game yet here. There’s more to do in this than in any previous entry, the controls are pitch-perfect, and the entire experience is absolutely beautiful, especially considering that it’s a handheld title. That being said, not much has changed in the core gameplay and sound department, and while that won’t bother the fanbase (myself included), it makes me start to wonder how long the venerable developer can keep doing the same thing repeatedly until it starts to get old. Until then, though, “New Leaf” is a really fun little game, and one that I expect to hold me over for not months, but years to come.
