About

If the hustle and bustle of modern life’s got you down, Tom Nook has a new business venture up his sleeve that he knows you’ll adore: the Nook Inc. Deserted Island Getaway Package! Sure, you’ve crossed paths with colorful characters near and far. Had a grand time as one of the city folk. May’ve even turned over a new leaf and dedicated yourself to public service! But deep down, isn’t there a part of you that longs for…freedom? Then perhaps a long walk on the beach of a deserted island, where a rich wealth of untouched nature awaits, is just what the doctor ordered!

Peaceful creativity and charm await as you roll up your sleeves and make your new life whatever you want it to be. Collect resources and craft everything from creature comforts to handy tools. Embrace your green thumb as you interact with flowers and trees in new ways. Set up a homestead where the rules of what goes indoors and out no longer apply. Make friends with new arrivals, enjoy the seasons, pole-vault across rivers as you explore, and more!

Animal Crossing: New Horizons reviews and comments

very good game my boyfriend gifted it to me i love him
I love the implementation here, allowing me more flexibility in designing the island and some of the new additions. Despite me liking it a lot for a few months, I found myself wishing it was more engaging. After a certain point I found I was logging in just to say hi to villagers that would repeat the same lines. There's just not enough variability to the villagers dialogue, nor is there a way to engage with them in the game other than giving them gifts or the occasional errand. Also, did they ever fix the first villagers house issues? Your first few villagers will always have a bland house so it's not beneficial to keep them even if you love them.

It's a good game, and I can't complain about many months I got out of it, but it leaves a lot to be desired. Maybe I'll check it out soon just to see what's going on.
«OST on repeat»
I played this every single day during lockdown, enough said. It makes past versions seem a bit lacking due to the ability to decorate outside but New Horizons is also taking its sweet time with releasing all the NPCs.

This game is a system seller, the reason i bought my Switch!

Exceptional in some ways, mediocre or even frustrating in others
«Sit back and relax»
Seriously overhyped. Boring, tedious, bad building sim.

«Waste of time»
As much as I enjoyed the first handful of hours, this game made me extremely frustrated throughout the island resort grind. The big draw to New Horizons is the progression. On this deserted island, it's very easy to see the progress you're making and gives a sense of pride to your new home. About half way through, the grind begins. The game is no longer about progressing your island, but about grinding for turnips, buying and selling, and going through tedious chores. What makes me the most angry is the blatant lack of quality of life. Giving fossils/bugs/fish/art to Blathers is so incredibly slow and if you already have all the fossils, you're still forced to go through lengthy dialogue to get worth out of those fossils. I also had my roommates play on my Switch and they were frustrated because they didn't have as much power on the island as I did. Going to a friend's island feels like it would be shorter to just drive to their house to see it. Again, really enjoyed the beginning, but because of the purposefully slow gameplay and poor multiplayer, this is a game that I left as soon as I reached my goal.

It just wasn't for me. The idea of complete customization is novel, but the wait times and excessive grinding make it slow and frustrating. If I had a hacked version that removed the grinding and wait times, I would probably enjoy it. I put it down shortly after the credits rolled.

I have played it for 200 hours, and will play it for 200 more hours. incredibly charming and cozy, a perfect escape from the hellworld we live in.
