Animal Crossing Amiibo Party is not the game that the franchise deserves but some of its minigames have interesting but unexploded mechanics. The presentation and soundtrack are charming but it only makes us wish for a complete game of the series on Wii U. Not everything was bad in my experience but Nintendo could definitely make a better game.
Witty writing and overall charm can only carry a game so far. Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival has those two things in spades, but a barren wasteland of interesting gameplay makes it a party game that falls short of even the earlier 2015 disappointment Mario Party 10.
Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival is the sort of game that should have been free. It holds such little content that is actually interesting that most players will find it a waste of their time to play, especially when the far superior Mario Party series already exists. It is a nice way to actually use those Animal Crossing Amiibo figures that you might feel the need to collect, but their function is so forced that it detracts from the experience rather than enhances it.
This game promised a lot. In the end an underdeveloped electronic board game came out. But when you are playing with people this game may not be as bad. A solid 6 represents well the game. This game fell short but still, the price dropped to 25 bucks. :)
Received this game as a gift and it's not as bad as everyone says it is. The graphics are pretty decent, cute characters are there for you to smile at and the music is your average Animal Crossing music, just a little more upbeat.
Doesn't mean it's a decent game though. I'm still unsure if this was just a cash-grab or not, but I'm pretty sure it was. I absolutely love the amiibo figures that you can buy, but the fact you have to keep picking them up feels... unnecessary? To just roll a dice? There's also no minigames on the boards, and the 3 minigames you can play aren't Mario Party level or anything. They're cute though. The game also seems to go on for a long, long time.
I don't know, if you're looking for an Animal Crossing spinoff game, just buy Happy Homes Designer. At least you don't need an amiibo to play the game there. Like I said, it's not the worst game but it's also not good.
Some of the minigames are decent, but this game ****.
The board game idea isn't the best, but I would be fine with it, as an extra mode. Making it the main mode doesn't work as well, unless it's very interesting. And this is really boring.
This shouldn't have been the only Animal Crossing game on the Wii U.
Imma go back to playing Mario Party 10 now.
SummaryThe Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival game is a new way to play with your favorite Animal Crossing characters. Your amiibo figures are front-and-center in this party game, and you’ll get to utilize them with fun content. Bring to life an expansive and dynamic board game where the board is based on the months of the year like the core Anim...
