Here’s the bottom line if you don’t have time to read the full review:

The Bottom Line


  • Fun, relaxing gameplay and music.
  • Easy to get attached to.
  • Tons to do and collect.
  • Make your own goals.


  • The time between the closed shop.
  • Takes a decently large time commitment.
  • Slow paced.
  • Make your own goals.

Final Score: 9.5/10

Depending on who you ask, Animal Crossing is either an amazing game or an incredibly boring one. Some people don’t like making their own goals and the idea of not being able to sit down and “power through” a game sometimes turns some people away. That said, I’m in the first camp; I think Animal Crossing is amazing, fun, and relaxing, and everyone should try it at least once.
