Tomodachi Life is the new life simulator game from Nintendo. But that doesn’t mean a boring 9-5 office simulator, it means more mad and crazy Japanese things to do with your Mii kinda game. Which, as far as anyone is concerned, equals awesome.
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.
Tomodachi Life does its best to cut through a lot of society's hateful garbage to produce an incredible island paradise of distraction and more often than not succeeds, but not without stumbling all over itself, revealing too many embarrassing inner thoughts.
If you want to pick up a simulator game for Nintendo 3ds, consider picking up Animal Crossing New Leaf instead. This isn't from a biased standpoint either, as I actually experienced Tomodachi Life BEFORE ACNL.
In terms of anything you can actually do in this game, it's extremely limited. Yes, you can buy lots of clothing and food to feed your islanders. In fact, I appreciate this game for the amount of variety they put into the foods, including lots of foods from different countries and backgrounds, even some I never heard of! However, the set back is that there's not much control you have over the food other than to feed it to your characters. Whatever food your character likes is purely RNG and if your character doesn't like the food OR clothing you give it, your money goes down the drain.
The leveling system is quite weird, since there's basically no purpose for it once you figure out what you intend to get. The most useful thing you can get from leveling up is a song to sing, which you can edit your own lyrics. I do enjoy that part of the game, but the lead up to it feels meaningless. You feed your Mii a few foods that they like, and now they're a musical prodigy. Supposedly, if not everything was actually handed to you, and instead you had to actually do something it could have made the game more intriguing to play.
Other than that, I have no hard feelings towards Tomodachi Life. It's very unlikely it's ever going to be ported to Nintendo Switch.
It's the sort of game you're meant to check up on, but not really play.
It looked fun but I regret buying the game.. I put mine up for sale now, it got too annoying.
It's cute but there's no 'real' thing to do, no goals and you can't plan the way things are going, it's just like watching a Mii movie or something.
