Talkback

The first game was horrid. There was no sense of character interaction like in the PC games and no real reason to build better items or decorate your house well due to the lack of "Needs"; i.e. a more complicated to build bed would provide better Comfort and charge Energy quicker.

The game was so heavily influenced by Animal Crossing, you'd think they could have let multiple people play in the same town. You would have wanted to build cool items to trade and show off then.  Also, it would have been nice to see the Essences actually influence how your town looked. I planted Ghost Trees everywhere and had every house decked out in Spooky yet my town was still sunny and green. Lame.

Agreed, they have a long list of things to fix before I get this one...

The theme is interesting, though, so that's a start...

The thing is, this game will be most likely going up against Animal Crossing...Good luck with that, EA!

Well it sounds like this one may be less like Animal Crossing than the first, which could help it if it does go up against the Wii Animal Crossing. I never played the first one, but the building system fascinates me so I'll keep my eye on this one.

MorariMay 17, 2008

The building system was fairly well done. It was the only reason I even played through the entire game. There just wasn't any incentive to really utilize the mechanics.
