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

Chillin. Not much more. 7/10
«Sit back and relax»
As a long time fan of the AC series, this game improved on many aspects of the past iterations - namely graphics, multiplayer, and customization. But it's definitely lacking in a few things. Villager dialogues become really dull after a few days, there's SO much text to scroll through, nobody insults you anymore, everything is grind grind grind. I miss the spontaneity of the original game, the sassiness of my villagers, the terrifying gyroids, the sense of discovery, and when the achievement of paying off Nook actually felt like a huge accomplishment. However, if you like a cute DIY experience this game is perfect for you! 
With a little too much hand-holding, Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a pleasant, serene game that gives hours of fun. It’s a DIY experience, however, since there are so many ways to play. This game offers a brief relief from the stresses of modern life, and the long wait for its release was well worth it.
Its so hard to divorce the experience of playing this game from the feeling of early quarantine, back in March and April 2020.  It was an escape outside, to visit friends, host parties, share and communicate and decorate and shop and travel.  Has a game ever released at just the right moment in a more universal way before? Did Nintendo start the pandemic to make it so? Yes.
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
