Computer gaming just got a whole lot more exciting thanks to this fab Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival (Nintendo Wii U). In this day and age, video gaming has gone way beyond the passing fad it used to be - think corner arcades from the early 1970s. Computer games are now an intrinsic part of everyday life all over the world and guess what, studies show they're good for you too. Yeah, you heard that right. Computer games help boost memory, increase coordination, improve cognitive thinking, sharpen decision making skills, and reduce stress. Oh, and they're super-fun too. Game on!
It's fun if you like animal crossing or board games. All you need is the amiibo that come in the box to play it. There are villagers for the other players if you don't have more animal crossing amiibo so there really isn't much bad about this game.
Consumers have been spoiled over the past years with the fun that a video game board game can be with Mario Party. Most of us Animal Crossing fans were looking for something that brought the cute feel and casual enjoyment of Animal Crossing to something fun and exciting with friends like Mario Party. The final result feels very disappointing and lacking - really only good for one playthrough before it's boring. The regular board features no minigames and leaves the game feeling incredibly lacking and boring - you really just sit around and roll the dice, there is little thought or action required in the game. The beautiful Animal Crossing soundtrack is really no where to be heard while the same 10 second song plays on loop for the next hour . For a game series that focuses on customization and all the extra fun activities you can do, this seemingly easy board game adaptation fell extremely short. It's the promising look of an Animal Crossing title with none of the things you want or love. For the price you pay I guess it's worth it with the two amiibos, but otherwise this game feels like it's missing.. everything. To be honest, I only keep this game around because I love the Animal Crossing amiibos.
People have reviewed this game very harshly, I think. It's basically a board game on your wiiu. It's fun and simple. It's not meant for the hard core gamer especially since the game is more about chance and where you land when you role the dice. The Amiibo that come with the game are cute and well made. You use them to take your turn. You can also use the cards to have special characters role the dice on your turn. I've enjoyed playing this game with other adults and kids.
The game is cute at first. But the appearance is not enough to justify the price with what you get. This is a board game but the only thing you do is tap your Amiibo to the Wii pad controller. That gets very tiring halfway into the game. The script is interesting the first time you play, the script does not change with each play through. The box mentions mini-games. Those mini-games are unlocked after you have beaten the game. So you must play a couple of times to get to the mini-games. The game is good for a very young player but if you want an engaging AC title this is not it.
