    For the gamer that likes to live double or triple lives, or for an original Animal Crossing fan, this is a game to pick up. However, for the gamer that demands fast-paced action, storyline, and an imperative need for an ending, this may not be the best game to play.
  2. It may sound mundane, but there are enough winning touches to make the game very playable in short bursts.

    I LOVE this game. I'm 62 and my daughter got me started with it on my birthday, in February.
