Animal Crossing: New Horizon

I’m going to be honest in the start of this review. I haven’t really sat and played a REAL Animal Crossing game. I have kind of half assed played them and then I got tired of being yelled at by not showing up every day. This is what happened with Nintendogs too. So it’s not just this game. There’s something about this one though that really makes it something I want to play everyday. Whether it’s talking to people or spending bells. This one just feels better.

So let’s start off with the story. I mean it’s not a long one. Tom wants to try out Island life with you. Your goal is to make this island rock everyone’s socks off. Easy enough yea?? That’s it. Tom does go on to explain new things to the game….

Nook Miles are something new added to the game that’s an additional currency in the game. You get them for completing achievements or for jut doing everyday things like talking to villagers or fishing. These points can be used for a few things. New items, new clothes, Bells or for tickets to travel. The traveling is the fun part if you ask me. You travel to random islands where you can meet potential villiagers or new fruits. YOu can also get special fish and items as well by traveling around them.. Just make sure that you don’t leave anything you want to keep behind. Once you leave the island you cannot come back.

Crafting is a lot of fun in this game. you can learn many recipes through your villagers, the Nook Shopping and your friends. You can also shoot them from the sky or find them on your beach. I really wish you could craft multiple things at once, but holding down A speeds everything up and then you have to go through the dialog again. It’s a mixed feeling that’s for sure. But it’s not too bad honestly, just a little annoying.

With the game only being out for a few weeks, I haven’t had the chance to experience a lot of the holidays or seasonal changes. But so far they are pretty dynamic and spring with the cherry blossoms have been super pretty. Bunny day is here in a few days so I can’t wait for that one either. If the other holidays are like this one then I’m excited.
I really like the idea of a little world. It’s by itself but at the same time it’s not. Friends, villagers and you make it something special. The amount of time you put into this game is a lot and somehow, I feel like I can’t ever finish it. I fine more things I want to do, more places to explore. Everything. It’s so neat and just exciting.

Playing with friends is a lot more fun now. One thing that kind of gets me is you can’t swap bugs and fish with them so you just have to wish them luck if they want something you fished up. In my close group of friends we keep everyone up to date on what’s in our stores and our turnip prices so we can get things we like and make them sick bells!

Anything can come true in this game. You make your own style or just be whoever you want to be. There are costumes and clothes for almost anything thing you want. Like today I got some Togas because why not! Maybe I want to host a Toga party or eat a salad. Who knows! I don’t! There are so many silly things you can get but honestly, with being able to change everything about my character, I can change my looks with how I feel. If I want to be a bunny, I can. Geisha? Got it. Power Ranger? Hell to the yeah!! It’s endless. With those as well as custom designs you can be whatever you want to be!

I have nothing but praise for this game to be honest with you guys. Sure there are a few things that I might not like but they don’t effect the game that much. I can go on and one how I rather enjoy the fact I can change every aspect of my character whenever I want and have it be free. Or how I can fish or collect bugs all day and be happy. I can lose myself in this game and as quickly as I do, I can come back to the real world and go about my day.

Animal Crossing is a GOTY contender for me for 2020 as well as a 9/10 Bell rating. Everything is great about the game. I do wish there was a little more you can do with your friends and a little more you can give them. But I love this game and I don’t regret anything about it!!! 😀
