There's pretty much nothing to do in this game that I don't already do in real life, but with more fulfilling rewards. this game's definition of "mayor" is actually glorified groundskeeper...

I know many people LOVE Animal Crossing. It's a charming series with likeable characters and lots to do. Me? I find it mind-numbingly dull. I just can't get into it for some reason. However, I DO see what people enjoy about it. I just don't enjoy it myself.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf is definitely a change from your traditional Animal Crossing game. When you start the game, you just want to have a peaceful life in your new town. However, once you get off the train you arrived in, you are greeted by 3 animals and the mayor's assistant telling you that you are the new mayor. This makes a huge step away from previous Animal Crossing games, and you start almost immediately. You are responsible for making community projects that help you and your residents. Overall, you are in charge of making your town a better place to live. What I liked about this game is that even though you live in a small town, you have a city-like main street to buy what you need. You can open up more shops there, like a barber shop, shoe store, and even a nightclub! You can unlock something called the dream mansion, which allows you to go to somebody's town via dream, but you can't really do anything to the town. You can also visit somebody's town by train, where what you do actually affects their town. If you are looking for a game where you can go at your own pace, Animal Crossing: New Leaf is the game for you.
