    Endlessly charming and unusually engaging, Tomodachi Life is a fantastic diversion.

    This is the sort of game that open-minded players will love if they give it a chance.

    Tomodachi Life is more toy than game, but it’s an intriguing, colorful, and consistently surprising one.

    Tomodachi Life is a trip into a world where your Miis live out a never-ending series of bizarre and amusing adventures. While I’m glad that Nintendo of America decided to take a chance in bringing it our way, those adventures are unfortunately tainted somewhat due to a few gameplay decisions that really should be rectified in a future sequel.

    Tomodachi Life is not really a life simulator. If you were expecting a sort of Animal Crossing with Miis, you are going for a huge disappointment. As it is, Tomodachi Life is a fun game to play for a few minutes once in a while: it gets pointless and repetitive fast, but it's always fun to see Miis interact and do weird things.

    It could've been perfect as a 3DS integrated experience, but, as a standalone game, it lacks the depth of other simulations.

    The abundance of surreal moments make for game that's fun to tell others about, but dull to play.

But After a few hours of playing it it grew on me and I really love Tomodachi Life it's very fun and addicting, hours past in mere seconds I don't think I've ever had so much fun with a video game before but in the end that's all that matters in a video game the fun factor.

    The only CON for me was there were a couple of scenarios, characters, story elements that were weird and I didn't understand at all and the game makes no attempt to explain it, I won't spoil it buy the game to find out :P it's strange, amazing and weird. But it doesn't affect the overall game.

    Tomodachi Life is a lot of fun and addicting, I highly recommend it.

    Tomodachi Life is a great game. It may not appeal to every kind of gamer but if it clicks with you, it will be a fun experience. I thinkTomodachi Life is a great game. It may not appeal to every kind of gamer but if it clicks with you, it will be a fun experience. I think you're able to enjoy the game much more if you have a lot of real life friends or a lot of favorite famous people/characters to add. The game has made me laugh so many times and even when I've played more than 10 hours it I still want more, though I'm starting to feel it a bit repetitive. I'd recommend adding few characters first, specially if you want a special pairing/relationship, cause the more characters you have the hardest is for them to "find" each other. Then you should add tons for more random relationships. I'd recommend this game to everyone who isn't really into violent or action games. Expand

Once you spend enough time on it and earn all of the buildings, it can start to feel boring. Even though there are tons of things to do, each thing doesn't hold its own to complete an experience. That may just be me though. That being said, it's really cool to go to all of the shops and see the clothes/food of the day and buy stuff for your people. I would give it an 8 because I think this game may just not be for me, but it is my review so I'm giving it a 7. Expand

    It's just the sims on a 3ds with miis. The sims is 100% more better than this.

    You can set your voice on your mii, but then your mii's voice will get so annoying.

    It's so random.

    Your mii that can say your name and text is very cool, well for a while. Then it gets SO ANNOYING!

    The sims 3 for 3ds is more better than this game.
