Looks and sounds like a 99% port of the DS... which was a great game but come on, we need more incentive than that.

I love this on the DS, but it's looking far too similar, I hate to pick on the graphics, but I was really expecting more from this. The city part of the game does look really great, but why didn't the whole game take place there, instead of the same little village? Living in an apartment in the city would have been a much better basis.

Almost all of the content seems to be recycled from the DS/Gamecube versions as well. Same furniture, same clothes, same fish, fossils, etc.. I only recently completed my museum collection in the DS one, I don't really feel like doing exactly the same thing all over again.

The most positive thing I can say, is that I'm really happy that they've brought back the proper holidays. The weekend events in the DS version were dire, it's great to see things like Halloween, Easter and Christmas back. If nothing else, it at least gives some incentive to play during those periods, unlike with "La-di-day".

I'm with you, Winter. With as good as SMG looked, they seriously couldn't make it look ANY better than it did on the Gamecube? Nintendo is really settling into a "We don't need quality when we are making money hand over foot" funk.
