Summary: This was the first Corner Shop series game I owned, and I'd say it's equal to the first one. They're both addictive and cute games for anyone who likes tycoon-cutesy-repetitiveness sort of games. But, they aren't extremely redundant and they don't get old that quicky; at least not to me. But they do reach that point of an "end". I haven't seen game play replicated this way before (check out a demo or a video on YT to see what I mean).
Summary: I bought this for a 6-year-old girl. She loves it! The reading level is fine for grades 1-2. The games get a little more difficult as you go along. It's fun enough to keep kids entertained during long car rides. It is repetitive, but there are so many different shops that you can switch to another shop game. I would recommend this for young girls.
Summary: I absolutely loved the first Tamagotchi game, so I figured that this would also be a great game to purchase. It was just like the first one but you get to play with different types of shops! It is defintely worth purchasing if you enjoyed the first one!
Summary: Just like the first Tamagotchi game, this doesn't actually involve much care of your pet (rewards are for aesthetical purposes only - you don't actually take care of your friend). Nevertheless, the mini games are a lot of fun and can get pretty challenging at times. If you know any Japanese, the game is all that much more enjoyable! Many of the characters have silly names that translate into things like "Young Grandpa" and such.
Summary: Maybe I grade games too highly but if its not awful, I'm ok with it. This was more elementary than I thought it would be, but being the gamer that I am, I finished it before reselling it. The shops and the idea of the game is really cute but it gets pretty repetitive. I had to put it down and play with it every other day or so.
