Very quirky game with a plethora of stuff to do. The game starts off pretty simple enough. You make your first resident for your freshly created island. You can either import characters from your Mii Maker collection or make a brand new one from scratch, which is ideal for adding any super custom characters you might want, like Nikola Tesla, and Conan O'Brien like I did, or you can use the photo to Mii feature which allows you to take a pic and gets transformed into a Mii. Kind of accurate, but I prefer the more manual approach. The game slowly reveals new features the more you progress and the more your Mii's level up. The heart of the game is the characters that you end up building. They all kind of go out and do their own thing throughout the day. They might be in their apartments, or they might be at work somewhere on your island. You must keep them fed and happy, or things might start to go awry. A few hours in, and already there's angry and depressed Mii's scattered that apparently don't want to make up.

- The character customization leads to some hilarious results
- Tons of items to collect and purchase
- Really cool features to unlock like the concert hall
- The fact that you can give each character their own voice
- The StreetPass features open up even more possibilities on the island.
- The Rap Battles are hilariously fun to watch

- Takes a while to get enough Miis' created for the game to really get fun
- Mini games need a bit more variation
- Voices take some tweaking at times in order to sound clear

Not many cons in this title though. So far I've had a rap battle between Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison, various hilarious news reports happening all day long, and Fox Mulder performing a metal song.

I want to clarify my review a bit. Many gamers are going to look at this game as very similar to Animal Crossing, but this is not the case. This game relies on wacky interaction between the Miis, but you do not have direct control of any of the Miis like you do with your village avatar in Animal Crossing. More importantly, you won't spend hundreds of hours in this game like you would in Animal Crossing collecting money to repay Tom Nook, or upgrade your town. Despite this, Tomodachi Life is a great game for casual gameplay.


I got the early demo for this game and realized that I had to get this "game", which feels like it ought to be on iOS, or Android, or even Facebook, than the 3DS. As most reviewers have said, the game is a mix of Animal Crossing and The Sims, with really quirky humor. You are the proprietor of an island (which you get to name), and then you get to pick 30 Miis to invite to live on your island. You can get special Miis like Shaquille O'Neal (basketball player) or Christina Aguilera (singer) from the Nintendo's Tomodachi website. You can also import Miis from your Mii Maker, or by using the QR reader; but for some reason you can get the Miis from your friend list. Next you have to customize things like their personality, and even the sound of their voice. Nintendo gives you alot of options in the voice alone: type of voice (old person, young child), the tone, the quality and even the accent. You don't have to do this if you get the special Mii's from the Tomodachi website.

You don't control any Mii directly, instead you interact with them by handling their various requests - getting them food when they are hungry, playing games like Concentration (the game where you have to match pairs of cards).

When I initially bought this game, I had an incredible amount of fun with it. It was so exciting seeing all my friends and some fictional characters and celebrities I created all interacting with each other, getting married and making friends while I just oversaw their activity. However, things quickly grew stale. After I unlocked all the buildings, there was really nothing else to do. I could enter the game each day to see if there were any new items in the shops, but even that lost its charm after a couple of weeks. I heard many people comparing this game to Animal Crossing and The Sims, and here's the main difference between them: those games are fun and stay fun over time, whereas this game is fun but loses its appeal very quickly. If you're looking for something to pick up once in a while just to play for a few minutes, then this game is for you - otherwise, I'd pass.

To be frank, Tomodachi Life is a bizarre, zany game that I've found quite addictive since I've acquired it. Anyone who's craved deeper interaction with Nintendo's charming Mii characters should enjoy this game. Speaking of the word "game," I wouldn't really classify this title as an actual game; it's more of a simulator that involves the player indirectly overseeing an island loaded with buildings and Miis.
The Miis, which often make off-the-wall requests, have needs and requests, somewhat similar to those of The Sims, although curtailed. (As far as I know, if the player ignores his/her island for a long while, nothing detrimental will happen.) Tomodachi Life, while similar in premise, does not allow the player to move characters around freely like The Sims and Animal Crossing, choosing every action along the way.
Despite this, there's definite input to be found from the player. For example, a concert hall, where a player's islanders sing, contains pre-written songs; however, should the player wish, he/she can write an entirely new song from scratch. Further, the player has the option to customize all islanders, including their voices and clothes (it's great to hear Miis speak English!) It's features like these that make Tomodachi Life shine and a worthwhile purchase.
