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!
