Animal Crossing: New Leaf is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from (Listed below, too long. :/) (Title: Animal Crossing: New Leaf: Rule Over Annoying and Repetitive Animals As Mayor) (Don't mind this, it was a school review.) Animal Crossing is a simulation game that never ends and the main plot is that you, the human main character is moving to a new town with talking animals. It might sound creepy, but you can do lots of things with them, like have them come over to your house or whack the annoying ones with bug nets. The game costs $34.99 for either the digital version or the physical copy, available for the Nintendo 3DS and is rated by ESRB as E for Everyone. You can screenshot things in-game and The game also lets you do things like catch bugs and fish, design things and do pretty much anything you want, however those are just some of the basic things that you can do in it. GameCube, Nintendo 64, DS, Wii versions vs. 3DS version in previous editions of the game, you could fish, catch bugs, play over Wi-Fi, interact a bit with villagers and send messages to friends. It wasn’t as interesting. However, in this version, many new features were added, along with a lot of graphical changes. The characters are now taller and (believe it or not) now have pants and shoes. There is now a building called the Dream Suite that lets you visit uploaded versions of anyone’s town which you can completely destroy and have completely nothing happen to the real town. Of course, there are still even more features, but the main feature in this edition is that you become the mayor of the town you arrive in. Being the mayor, you get to set a law for the town (ex. to have stores open earlier), build projects like fountains and boss your villagers around to change their clothing if it looks ugly, though you could always do that. However, only the first person who played on that copy can be mayor, meaning that the other save files can only play as residents of the town. Some more features would be to visit an island which belongs to the mayor in previous games, Tortimer which you can play mini-games on and catch rare bugs, to dive in the sea and find sea creatures with a Marine Suit, there were new fruits (Old games: Apple, Pear, Orange, Peach. New Leaf: Old fruits with a new form of them called Perfect fruit, persimmons and tropical fruits which have too many in that category to remember.) The City in the Wii edition was removed and replaced with a counterpart named Main Street, which has buildings that you can unlock and upgrade. There was also a new store called Re-Tail, where you can auction items for sale, sell things to Reese, the pink alpaca, and refurbish furniture with Cyrus, the blue alpaca which you unlock. Some options for refurbishing would be to use a custom design, change the colour of wood, etc. There are new pieces of furniture as well, like the claw machine, the polkadot series, and the Trump/Card series. You can play over multiplayer as well, by visiting or inviting friends to your town via local and Internet and there is a in-game chat function which you can choose to send the message to everyone, or just friends that you choose. You can only choose to private chat friends that are in your friend roster and are registered in the Animal Crossing friend roster. The island supports multiplayer and you can still play the mini-games found at the island. There is also a feature called Club Tortimer that lets you play with random people from your region or around the world on a randomly generated island. StreetPass is also integrated with this game; you can receive model homes of the Animal Crossing players who you tagged through StreetPass in the HHA or Happy Home Academy. If you tag them more than once, they will give you a give each time you tag them again. An exclusive North America and Europe feature is to receive homes through SpotPass, mainly because it was harder to get tags outside of Asia. The villagers have been updated as well: You can have 10 of them opposed to the previous 8, there are two new types named Uchi/ Big Sister (They care a lot about you and are usually calm, and will give you medicine for bee stings. They are female.) and Smug (They’re calm, go-with-the-flow, that sort of things. They want to know about everything, basically.). The things that I liked most about this game was that two new villager types were added, because the standard six was not enough and got too repetitive, the game was completely redesigned and looked really nice, and of course, the ability to be mayor because it added much more customisation to the game than there already is. However, things that bothered me is that villagers can literally plop their house anywhere you want and it can destroy your town if they move in places like your hybrid flower (purple/ blue roses, etc.) farm, the middle of your path and in front of a slope or bridge, which just is really annoying. Another thing is that the multiplayer did not work as well as I thought it would and did not work 80% of the time when I tried to visit someone, and if it did work, it would crash while saving. The last thing would be is that the villager speech is still slightly repetitive and I feel like I’ve seen every single piece of dialogue there is that they all say. Animal Crossing: New Leaf is a really cute and fun game, it has a whole ton of new features, new villager types were nice, stores and customization were improved greatly, diving is entertaining and you can jump off of a cliff into water in your town, and with the feature to be mayor, you can really make your town your own, that is unless you have terrible internet access and depend on people for money and rare furniture. I would give this game a 4 out of 5, because of some of the bugs and how they can impact your gameplay.
