My preferred approach to gaming has never been catered to by any entry in the Animal Crossing series, so none of those games have ever interested me. I'm always looking for something fresh to try, and when I complete one video game, I can't wait to get started on the next one in the series. The concept of Animal Crossing, in which there is no real ending and no sense of victory, is not one that lends itself well to the kind of personality that you have described. In Animal Crossing, there is no real ending and there is no sense of victory. Because of this, whenever I start a new installment in the series — and I have played them all — I am aware that there will come a point a month or two down the line at which I will just let it go, move on to something else, and only check in on holidays. This is something that I know will happen because I have played all of the games in the series. I've completed each and every one of the games in this series.

New Horizons has the best chance of altering this pattern of behavior that I have, despite the fact that it is too soon to say for certain. Although New Horizons is not without its flaws, it is fair to say that the same could be said about any of the other games in the series. The game for the GameCube features 15 different towns inhabited by villagers, and it boasts some of the most endearing and thought-provoking banter and musical compositions of the entire series. However, in spite of all of its many strengths, it does have a number of significant weaknesses that, when compared to any criticisms you might have regarding more recent video games, are by far more significant.

In addition to being an excellent game in its own right, New Leaf also features some intriguing add-ons, such as the capacity to host online parties with other users and engage in online minigame competitions. On the other hand, it does not yet have the capacity to design towns, add outdoor furniture, or provide the numerous conveniences that were introduced in New Horizons.

If, on the other hand, you evaluate a video game based on what it actually is rather than on what it is not, then the only question that really matters is whether or not New Horizons is fun to play. Unquestionably, the answer to that inquiry is going to be yes. Extremely fun.




The Animal Crossing video game series is intended to be played for brief periods of time, on average once per day. On the other hand, ever since I began making use of New Horizons, I've discovered that I play for significantly longer periods of time. This is especially the case when I am attempting to rack up Nook Miles, when I am visiting mystery islands, or when I am using the island designer app to customize the appearance of my island. New Horizons is not only the first Animal Crossing game I have ever rated with a perfect score (10/10), but it is also the Animal Crossing game that I consider to be my all-time favorite.


Animal Crossing: New Horizons places more of an emphasis on the things that the player is unable to do in the game's first few days than it does on the things that they can do


  1. After you have created a character with the body type that you prefer — I don't believe the word "gender" is used anywhere in this game — you are transported to an uninhabited island where you are greeted by two random animals who will serve as your initial neighbors

  2. This island is where you will spend the majority of your time

  3. After Tom Nook has provided you with a brief introduction, you will be given the title of Resident Representative, and you will be given the responsibility of finding the perfect location for your brand-new home

  4. At this point, you will become aware of the first limitation of the game, which is that you are unable to immediately explore the entirety of your island at once

  5. You will learn this limitation

There are no bridges that can be used to cross the rivers, and swimming is not an option because the rivers are too deep. When we first start playing the game, the climbing ladder and the pole for vaulting that we have seen in the trailers will not be available to us. You should know that after about a week of playing the game, you will be able to move to the location of your choice, even if the place where you first establish your base of operations is not one that you particularly enjoy. This is something that you should be aware of. You will, however, have to put forth some effort in order to get access to that function.


In contrast to the Animal Crossing series, which has always placed a strong emphasis on its lack of a definitive ending, the New Horizons series is organized around the concept of steadily advancing through a set of increasingly difficult levels.


1. In previous games, you always started off in towns that were already built when the game started

2.  Nothing in this location is more than a few months old

3.  The first people to take part in the game will be you and your two neighbors, Tom, Timmy, and Tommy, as well as Orville and Wilbur, the dodo brothers

4.  The latter two are completely original creations and they both have jobs at the airport that is situated on the island

5.  That is a good way to sum it all up

6.  There is not a museum, there is not a store called Sable and Mable, and there is not a store called Nooks Cranny

7.  In order to obtain all of that and a great deal more, you will need to perform certain tasks and collect the necessary materials for crafting

The act of crafting is fundamental to the operation of New Horizons in every respect. Almost everything, including all of your tools and other implements, will need to be crafted by hand if you want to survive. Note that these tools have a high risk of breaking, which is something that should be kept in mind. Items that have the word flimsy in the title are not likely to last for a long time in this world; however, as you continue to build up your town, you will learn new recipes that will enable you to craft versions of the item that are more durable. You will need the appropriate ingredients to make those tools, which is one of my favorite aspects of New Horizons. Another one of my favorite aspects of New Horizons is the fact that the crafting mechanic gives meaning to everything you can get in this game. If you want to make those tools, you will need the appropriate ingredients.

Shaking trees causes them to lose branches that can be fashioned into tools, and hitting rocks results in the creation of supplies that can be used for metalworking or stoneworking. Both of these processes are known as stoneworking and metalworking, respectively. Even previously used items such as tin cans, rubber boots, and tires that have been dredged from rivers and oceans can be repurposed and put to use in this part of the world. Keep getting stung by bees? You could make yourself some new wallpaper by using their hives, which you can collect if you want to. Why not give it a try? This is just one of the many recipes that can be discovered in bottles that have washed up on the shore, purchased from Timmy and Tommy, given to you by neighbors, or purchased using Nook Miles. Other recipes can be found in bottles that have washed up on the shore.
