HBM Reviews: Tomodachi Life
Well, E3 has started, and I'm hyped as fuck. So, to distract myself a little, I'm going to review Tomodachi Life. I mean, it did come out last Friday, and I've been playing it all weekend. So, yeah.
In this game, you own an island, and you have to populate it with Miis. Whether they're family, friends, celebrities, fictional characters, or just whatever weird creations you make, the island will get filled up with your Miis. As you do stuff with your Miis and make more of them, more places on the island open up, like shops, a news station, and a cafe. Over time, your Miis form relationships, and can even fall in love, get married, and have kids.
Of course, none of this would be possible without a player. And they make sure you interact with the Miis as much as possible. The Miis have problems you need to solve, they need to consult you for decisions, you have to play with them, etc. Once you have a sizable number of Miis, it can get kind of overwhelming.
There are also some Minigames you can play at certain locations. For example, the amusement park has an arcade game RPG that you can play once a day, and the observation tower lets you ask your Miis silly questions. Overall, there's just a lot to do in this game.
In the end, Tomodachi Life is a huge game, and it'll take a long time before you've done everything in the game. It's also really fun, and can keep you entertained for a long time. Even if you're not normally into simulation-games, give this game a try; you'll be pleasantly surprised.
HBM, signing out.
