¡¡¡¡Should I get this game, bc I keep hearing people getting bored in like three weeks, and that it takes forever to get anything, hell the town hall is like a week.

¡¡¡¡Now I can wait for all this stuff, but will I run out of things to do?

¡¡¡¡I also hear the game is unfinished, and that there is only one Shop upgrade,

¡¡¡¡I have Played NL, and I played it on the daily, it took me three years before I stopped playing it, and even after that I would get on every now and then.

¡¡¡¡I also heard of the unfair Money grinding but that one sounds pretty stupid.

¡¡¡¡The major one I’m really worried about, is the villager’s and Nookzon, Do the Villagers really get stale that fast, and dose the Villager with the same type really just copy form another villager?

¡¡¡¡And about Nokzone, do I need it to really get all I can out of this game? I don’t really have friends that own this game let alone want to trade or have said item I want.

¡¡¡¡So with all of this I have asked, And with somebody with three years of NL under there belt, (First AC game btw) Whould you suggest its worth getting, and if so what would you rate it?

¡¡¡¡Kinda hoping E3 brings news for a huge update. This game is dead as hell I haven’t touched it in months. Sitting as is it is definitely the worst mainline animal crossing.

¡¡¡¡@Snatcher The game definitely has it’s shortcomings, but I don’t feel as negative about it as many people out there (not even close). Personally, I have spent hundreds of hours and I’m still going back to it. I think that it all depends on how much you like to customize and how creative you are. From my perspective, while the game did take some steps back in socializing with animals, it does have the charm of the franchise but you could find frustrating that so many features are missing. It may be the least replayable of the franchise for many, but even so it’s still a game that the average person will spend a lot of time in it compared to many other games, so it’s hard that you won’t get value for your money.

¡¡¡¡I’d give it a 9 out of 10. To this day, I love having my own personal island and I had a lot of great experiences with it. Villagers might not be as charming as in other entries, but they have still managed to make me care about them and chuckle on several occasions.

¡¡¡¡An advice: dialogue isn’t as limited as people make it out to be, however it’s not because they are lying about it or anything. It just seems that animals have limited “small talk” before actually commenting different stuff, so you have to talk to them more than 4 times a day to pass that small talk part.

¡¡¡¡Unrelated but I’ve been meaning to tell you: I love your Snatcher pic. A Hat in Time is my favourite 3D platformer ever and Snatcher is simply the most amazing character.

¡¡¡¡I couldn’t find the preview on that Barnes & Noble page, hmm… Maybe me (on mobile device), maybe the link. If me, could anyone point out where to find it on that page?

¡¡¡¡”I have played NL”, makes me think NintendoLife. Which game are you referring to? scratches head Personally I stopped playing New Horizons already after like the third mission or so from Nook. I loved the GameCube version to bits, thought maybe I’ve just grown old and dull since the game didn’t grab me. In the old games one of my fondest memories was getting up each week to hear KK play songs, and I loved finding the hidden Nintendo games and interacting with Nook/paying off my debt. Didn’t get the same vibe here.

¡¡¡¡@Snatcher,

¡¡¡¡For me it’s the best in the series and am up to 1250 hours in, still visiting my island everyday,

¡¡¡¡a solid 9/10 from me, yes there are things missing from New Leaf, but they are nowhere near as bad as some are suggesting, and the new features are an awesome addition, the core game play is just the same, although this game as los more new dialogue from your villagers, with the usual repetition thrown in of course.

¡¡¡¡The Nintendo online app is a great companion as texting messages to online friends is far easier, especially when playing in docked mode, and when you add other players as best friends meeting up is very easy, also there is a daily Nook point bonus scheme witch gives you some cool items.

¡¡¡¡@roy130390 HMM Thanks for your opinion, I think I will get a few more before I try to get it, form how you worded it, its not perfect like many games, but even with tits issue’s the game is still as great as other animal crossings. And I think i’m a pretty creative person so even more reason to get it.

¡¡¡¡I love my pick to, I have almost become my avatar, A hat in time is simply amazing, yet I haven’t gotten the DLC, just the snatcher one LOL.

¡¡¡¡Snatcher Is also just simply an amazing character, A hat in time is underrated in my opinion, you don’t hear many people talk about it. soundtrack is also just amazing, and wile the switch ver, has its issue’s, it sure didn’t stop it from becoming one of my Favorite 3D platformers of all time, And that’s saying something, as I play lots of 3D platformers.

¡¡¡¡@Snatcher the town hall takes more along the lines of 2 weeks to get and the reason people usually get bored is because there¡¯s nothing to do after that besides decorating and the system can be rather tedious and annoying, lacks furniture to actually decorate with and they barely add any more, and there¡¯s also no building upgrades to look forward too unlike new leaf so it¡¯s literally just decorating and talking to villagers. Not sure about the money problem but I know there are tricks to make money quick. Villagers 100% are that bad and get very stale very fast and due to the new system in place for friendship they never ask you requests or give you jobs until your at a higher friendship level so you have to sit through a lot of bad dialogue to get access to those. There are merits to the game but athers have already listed a few of those

¡¡¡¡@Snatcher,

¡¡¡¡As value for money goes it’s a great purchase, and pretty sure around E3 time there will be some more updates.

¡¡¡¡Another thing that’s often brushed over is how good the visuals are, the new museum is awesome and even on my 110 inch projection screen it still looks amazing.

¡¡¡¡The shop upgrade issue is moot, as you get a shopping app on your Nook phone, which is unlocked after you have spent a certain amount with the Nook brothers.

¡¡¡¡@Snatcher the game does the opposite of pick up after that I¡¯d argue those 2 weeks are the best time with the game because you always have stuff to do things to build and find etc and after that it falls off hard because that incentives gone and the decorating system is only really fun the first time you do it not taking into account the tediousness of it

¡¡¡¡@Dizzymario,

¡¡¡¡To be honest I never remembered all that much to do in New Leaf, and I stopped playing after around 500 hours or so, the decorating is fun, and I like changing parts of my island and improving them all the time, my sister who was a massive New Leaf fan and played for years, bought a Switch for this new game and she is always starting over with her iisland.

¡¡¡¡Can see why some will find it tedious, but for me one of the best features of this new game.

¡¡¡¡@Snatcher,

¡¡¡¡I do feel a lot of people look at this game as an experience to beat etc, when it’s just a day to day simulator, and like in real life some days you will have stuff to do, others you may only spend 10 minutes or so.

¡¡¡¡@johnvboy there were shops to upgrade that lasted almost a year, club tortimer which you could do alone or with random people which gave you exclusive furniture and other stuff which you couldn¡¯t get elsewhere and there is no alternative to that in NH, there were more actual events in new leaf and some of them were very creative like April fools or the solstices, there was the cafe where you could do the part time job, in the welcome amiibo update there was the campsite where there would be a new character each day and they were special characters that you could buy special items from, there were the 3ds and wii u in that same update that both let you play 2 very good minigames that gave you special rewards, pwp campsite villagers were way more interesting and actually had unique stuff to give and a variety of minigames to play, there was fortune cookies with cool furniture plus the general furniture in that game was far more varied and didn¡¯t require a stupid crafting system to get half of it, and there were tons of PWPs to make and they just generally fit better than regular furniture in new horizons partly because of how much cooler they looked

¡¡¡¡@Snatcher I would echo what others have told you: the game is great and I would give it a 9.5 out of 10. I put more than 500 hours into New Leaf, and I am over 450 in New Horizons.

¡¡¡¡You know the game, so I won’t bore you with details. But you did say in a previous post that you are creative. That is where I think New Horizons shines.

¡¡¡¡Likewise, I am creative. With collecting, crafting and most of all terraforming, I have continued playing the game over a year. There are so many ways to modify the island. Is it as detailed as Minecraft? No. But all creativity works within constraints.

¡¡¡¡And honestly, the game is therapeutic for me. Because I designed an island that I really like, it is peaceful just to walk around every day and enjoy it.

¡¡¡¡@Snatcher well I¡¯ve put over a hundred hours into it and was hooked for almost a solid year so I¡¯d say it was worth the money if you like this sort of life sim of a game. Now I¡¯m completely bored of it and haven¡¯t played it in months. I do intend to go back but they¡¯ve got to add something more than piddley cosmetics. You may not notice this as much as others who have played ones in the past but it is still missing so much that other games in the line have had. The sense of progression in this one is worse than the others as it¡¯s lacking so much. I believe it will be added at some point, and I¡¯m sure the pandemic took a hit to this one. That¡¯s my two cents tho, yes I got my money¡¯s worth but it has become a slog and didn¡¯t last me as long as games of the past did.

¡¡¡¡@Snatcher – All Animal Crossing games are mechanically shallow and get boring eventually, but this one kept me playing for longer than NL, and overall I think it’s the best one so far, so I’d suggest picking it up if you invested that much time in the previous entry.

¡¡¡¡@Snatcher I will say this. Work at your own pace and try and pinpoint your theme for your island. The game could do with more updates with more features if we’re comparing to previous titles. But I also think alot of people powered through the game very quickly and burned out fast. I’ve put in 1000 hours and maybe have missed one or two days since launch. But there have been ebbs and flows in my playing time. Usually depending on my inspiration for an island project or building friendship with my villagers.

¡¡¡¡I’ve had to remember to slow down and not feel like I need to collect everything all at once. One of the fun things about the game is discovering new recipes to craft items.

¡¡¡¡That leads me to another thing in regards to villagers. You’ll get attached to some. But don’t be hesitant to rotate villagers out. And try to keep a diverse mix of personalities as they help keep the dynamic fresh and each personality offers certain DIY recipes you won’t get from others

¡¡¡¡@Peteykins @dugan @TYRANACLES @Geonjaha @UmbreonsPapa All of your opinions have been taken into account.

¡¡¡¡I have think I have made my choice, From what others have said creativity will give you a longer time with this game, and the last comment saying I should make a town theme, really got me thinkin, And even the negative stuff, it sounds like stuff I should worrying about then and not now, and even when that time comes, its worth your money, I’m 87% sure i’m going to get this game now, thanks guys.

¡¡¡¡My biggest beef with New Horizons is that if you ever put the game aside for a while, it punishes you in typical Animal Crossing fashion by trashing your island. Then if/when you work up the gumption to jump back in, you spend all your time and energy getting it back to a somewhat respectable state, only to find yourself overwhelmed and burnt out all over again.

¡¡¡¡Wish there was something like New Leaf’s ordinances to alleviate this to some degree. It’s such a chill game to dive into here and there otherwise. There should always be those anti-tedium measures baked in for types who aren’t/can’t be quite as invested though.

¡¡¡¡I’m not too into Animal Crossing, but this manga actually looks kind of interesting. Might pick that up, but I’m probably just going to rent New Horizons the game from my library if I want to try it out. It’s really not my kind series, but I feel like I can relax with it for a bit. I mainly just want to see what the latest entry is like since I got bored with New Leaf, but got a little into Pocket Camp a long time ago.

¡¡¡¡I think the New Leaf vs. New Horizons debate will never end. I often get the feeling that some people would have been perfectly happy if New Horizons was nothing more than an HD refresh of New Leaf with a couple of new features thrown in. These are the same people who go on and on about how wonderful the “life sim” aspect of New Leaf was, which leaves me scratching my head, because in the hundreds of hours I’ve spent with New Leaf and New Horizons, I honestly don’t see any significant difference between villager interactions in the two games.

¡¡¡¡Then you have the people who complain about the lack of “unlockables” in New Horizons while in the same breath they complain about having to “grind” for things like item recipes, so they seem to be of two minds about this sort of thing.

¡¡¡¡The other thing New Leaf fanboys love to do is to list all the things from New Leaf that are “missing” from New Horizons, but they never seem to look at it from the other direction and note all the things in New Horizons that are “missing” from New Leaf. It’s not that New Horizons has fewer features and activities, it just has different features and activities.

¡¡¡¡Are there some features from New Leaf that I would like to have seen brought over to New Horizons? Of course, but I also know if I ever tried playing New Leaf again, there are a number of New Horizons features that I would greatly miss. Each one is its own game, and I think they are equally enjoyable, but of course, individual results may vary.

¡¡¡¡I loved New Leaf and have played and enjoyed every game since Wild World, and not calling any of them, it’s just I do not recall any of these games having a much deeper experience than any other game in the series.

¡¡¡¡But from time played, I have to say New Horizons has me hooked more than any other game in the series.

¡¡¡¡Same here, just do not recall all this hidden depth and nuance in previous games, sure there is some content missing, but not missing all that much imho, and the new game some nice new features in it too.

¡¡¡¡And if Nintendo had simply remade New Leaf in HD, people would have still complained.
