5.0 out of 5 stars more like a play space than game - and that's a great thing, June 7, 2014
This review is from: Tomodachi Life (Video Game)
I have to agree with other reviews - this isn't exactly a game in the traditional sense. It is a play space where you bring in Mii's and see how they interact and give them things to make them happy. Think of it as a very simplified Sims mixed with Animal Crossing. So if you are a fan of that type of simulation then this will be a hit with you.

The best part of Tomodachi is creating Mii's from people you know, celebrities or even people from history and literature. You can become friends with these characters in this virtual island. You can also alter their personalities.

If you are expecting a traditional game then this is not it. If you want a new experience on the 3DS/2DS then this is perfect. It is more about interactions than missions - there doesn't seem to be any collecting of fruit or bugs. You get money from doing things to make the Mii's happy.

For parents - most of the text on the screen is also spoken so that should help those with reading difficulty. The one thing that I'd want to know as a parent is that this game incorporates food items. So far the food choices have been a lot of sugar items. Something to talk about with the kids so they understand that this is a game and not how a person should really eat.

On the whole this is a great non-violent title for everyone. There are creative elements like picking out clothes and apartment decor and creating lyrics to songs. Creating Mii's is key to populating the island and it can be fun to create Mii's from people in your life.
