    One island per system

    You can only have one island per system. The second player has to inhabit that island and share all resources with the first player. It's a nightmare for my family, where an 18 year old and 12 year old share the same con... Read Full Review

    It's weak... like my internet...

    I never played an Animal Crossing game before, but this game is weak. I have weak internet, so it takes 20-30 minutes to get a single update from this game. But they are just bug fixes and sometimes an extra feature. Th... Read Full Review

    Don't Buy This!

    Warning: This game is the worst Animal Crossing game of all time! Joy-Con Drift can ruin playing the game and the villagers repeat dialogue. Also, only one island per console. No proper back-up without contacting Nintend... Read Full Review

    Don't bother playing this game, play the older ones instead.

    Look, this game is not even close to good. It's terrible, bad, abysmal... whatever you want to call it. Animal Crossing involves a player moving in with other villagers. However, the only villagers you do move in are two... Read Full Review

    The Right Game For The Right Time On The Nintendo Switch!

    Maybe it's the isolation talking, but I don't think that there is a single video game out there, that could have managed to come out at PRECISELY the right time, PRECISELY when it was needed! The year of 2020, has seen M... Read Full Review

    Animal Crossing: New Horizons have something for everyone both new comers and fans alike

    I couldn't even tell you how many hours I poured into Animal Crossing: New Leaf back in 2013 trying to make the perfect town and home on my 3DS. It still holds up for a 3DS game alone and also the series as well is one o... Read Full Review

    Very disappointed. Really one player.

    Been a fan since gamecube, and while I expected the case may be that there was only one island, this game has ruined it for me. Only one player can progress the game. leaving vaulting poles, ladders, and unlocking basic... Read Full Review

    Game-breaking Flaw

    What seems like it could be a great game, is ruined by the fact that only one member of the family can play - ever. Once an island is created, that's it, nobody else who ever uses the entire Nintendo Switch console can ... Read Full Review

    NOT a multiplayer game

    I bought this to play with my wife and family. We let the son play first. Advancements are gated through his account now. The game is unplayable for my wife and I. Terrible design unless you are buying this as a single p... Read Full Review
