Summary: Rented from the library for my granddaughter (6 yrs old). Glad I didn't buy it. It certainly is cute, but if you've played the Animal Crossing game, this game will disappoint. We didn't have the experience of the game freezing up, but I DID clean the disc before we used it. I don't know what the target audience is - the game only says "EVERYONE", but be advised, the player must be able to READ, so if your child is not yet reading, you will need to sit there and read to...
It would be more fun for little kids if there was speech

Summary: I bought this on Black Friday, as a "$4 WII GAMES!" sale impulse buy. I'm glad I only paid $4 for it. We haven't experienced any of the technical glitches mentioned in other reviews...yet (granted, we've only played it for about half an hour so far). But none of the characters SPEAK.
Summary: The overall game is fun...until it freezes up and doesnt save the work you did. I had to start over twice and its irritating that you do all that work for nothing. Sure, its just a game but who wants to play a game that keeps freezing up, doesnt save your progress and constantly have to start over?
Summary: This game is so cute and so fun ....... UNTIL the freezing begins, which was almost immediately! I bought this game for my 4 year old daughter, and I pretty much played as she watched. There are several mini games that are played (to earn items such as coins, wood, fruit) to upgrade various buildings in the town. These mini games have to be played several times to collect enough items.
Summary: I didn't have any problems with the game freezing up, but navigation was a pain at times. You can't move like you can in a traditional game. Instead you have to point and click to move. I'll have to re-check the configuration to see if there's a way around that. If any characters are in your path or any objects, your character will immediately begin to interact with them. The mini games are fun, but you have a lot of monotonous tasks to complete before you can play them.
Summary: My daughter is 6 yrs old and reads pretty good for her age and she was very unhappy with this game due to the amount of reading verse playing time even when you can start a game the directions are very poorly stated,also the games we did play are very simple and boring. After about 20 minutes she asked if she had to keep playing(like it was punishment)so we're on our way to trade this in.
