Tomodachi Life offers a great kind of humor: it's just fun to laugh at yourself and your friends in absurd situations. Nintendo gets a lot out of mileage out of this Sims-like concept, but still manages to find ways to make it simple, accessible, and entertaining. The stiff, robotic voices could use improvement, but the effect of hearing the Miis speak is still novel in it's own way. The easy-breezy pace makes it ideal for short bursts of play, and it leaves me eager to check in on my town early and often.

A life less ordinary.

An amusing novelty on a good day but a tedious non-game for the rest of the week, Nintendo's life simulator proves voyeurism is not all it's cracked up to be.

Laid-back pacing and general silliness won't click with everyone

Tomodachi Life brings the quirk in spades, but it's not long before the novelty wears off.

A weird, hillarious, and heartwarming game that still surprises me after three solid weeks of playing it.
