„Animal Crossing: New Horizons“ ist der beste Urlaub, den ein Videospiel bieten kann und zugleich ein Meilenstein für die Reihe. Von der ersten Minute an fesselt das beruhigende Abenteuer mit seinem einzigartigen Charme, den selbst vorherige Teile der Reihe nicht derart perfekt umsetzen konnten. Egal ob die täglichen Abenteuer auf der eigenen Insel, die Unterhaltungen mit den Bewohnern, die Verschönerung des eigenen Hauses oder die Erweiterung der Infrastruktur, es gibt immer etwas zu tun, doch der Spieler wird nie zu etwas gezwungen. Vielmehr entscheidet jeder selbst über seinen Spielrhythmus und wird dabei bestens unterhalten. Wenn es ein Videospiel schafft, sich in den realen Tagesrhythmus einzufügen und zugleich motivierend und erholsam zu sein, dann gehört es in die Königsklasse. Nintendo hat es wieder einmal geschafft, denn „Animal Crossing: New Horizons“ ist der beste Teil der Reihe - und eines der besten Spiele dieser Generation.

Nintendo Life (Mar 16, 2020)
Animal Crossing: New Horizons takes Animal Crossing and not only drags it back onto home consoles, but improves upon every single facet imaginable. There's more to do, more to see, more to change, more to mould, and more to love; fans and first-time players are going to find themselves losing hours at a time gathering materials, creating new furniture, and making their island undeniably theirs. Every moment is unashamedly blissful, with excellently-written characters that truly feel alive and an island paradise that gives back infinitely more than you put in. Back when Animal Crossing: New Leaf hit the shelves all those years ago and created a whole new generation of fans, many people were wondering how Nintendo could possibly top it, but here we have our answer. This is a masterpiece that has been well worth waiting for.

New Horizons perfectioneert Animal Crossing met een weelde aan kleine, invloedrijke vernieuwingen. Het is een gezellig parallel universum waar je zelf aan het verhaal van een rustig leventje schrijft.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons released at just the right time to offer me a much-needed daily escape from an often disillusioning world, an alternative to blood-soaked wastelands or epic quests that determine the fate of a world or similarly grand fair. It's just me and my wife and sometimes online friends puttering about on fantasy islands, never needing to worry about more than paying back a lender who is in no particular hurry. There are plenty of other moods the game might not do much for, but it's the perfect antidote for my 2020 mood. Also, for whatever it's worth, I'm glad Bettina liked the beach ball.

انیمال کراسینگ همانند دیگر بازی‌ها برد و باخت ندارد. بلکه همانند یک ماراتون عمل می‌کند. فرقی ندارد اگر بخواهید ده ساعت در روز به تجربه بازی بپردازید یا تنها چند دقیقه زمان خود را صرف بازی کنید، در نهایت نتیجه خیلی تفاوتی ندارد. به عنوان مثال برای ساخت خانه حتما باید به اندازه چند روز صبر کنید و یا حتی برای به دست آوردن یک سری از قابلیت‌ها حداقل باید ۹ روز واقعی از تجربه بازی شما بگذرد. بهتر است از همان جمله کلیشه‌ای استفاده کنم. انیمال کراسینگ به درد همان روز هایی می‌خورد که به عنوان مثال از تجربه خشونت Doom خسته شده‌اید و قصد دارید مدتی را بدون آدرنالین و استرس به انجام بازی بپردازید. یا در محل کار چند دقیقه‌ای بیکار شده‌اید و فرصت این را دارید تا ماهیگیری کنید. Animal Crossing: New Horizons یکی دیگر از آن عناوین نینتندو است که تنها سرگرمی را هدف گرفته و در دستیابی به آن هم موفق عمل می‌کند. مواردی مثل بخش چند نفره و البته سرعت پایین پیشرفت در روز های اول شروع بازی تنها مواردی هستند که می‌توان به آن‌ها انتقاد کرد.

Animal Crossing has always been a series where every little thing leads to something productive. Doing nothing and staring off into the sky is relaxing, decorating houses is fun and catching critters feels rewarding. There’s never been a real “point” to Animal Crossing but that’s what makes it enjoyable, as every person can enjoy and do what they like at their own pace. New Horizons nails this feeling more than ever, with so many options and lots of things to collect and enjoy. While it’s easy to play in short bursts, it’s often hard to stop playing when ideas keep coming and experimentation is so much fun when there’s little to no consequences. New Horizons is by far the best Animal Crossing and anyone looking for a way to relax or get creative should not miss out.

The Game Hoard (Jun 08, 2020)
Before you reach some of the do-nothing days or truly feel the repetition set in, Animal Crossing: New Horizons has plenty to work towards, a wide variety of items to obtain, and a wonderful charm to it that keeps things easygoing and satisfying. The degree of customization is incredibly freeing and makes it very easy to concoct personal goals that are gratifying to work towards. Decorating, building, collecting, and crafting all are rewarding before you factor in things like the island’s progression or the Nook Miles challenges, and while there are little niggling points like the sometimes vapid villagers and schedule woes, Animal Crossing: New Horizons still ends up a relaxing and enjoyable life sim that’s perfect for some low pressure personal fun.

The addition of Nook Miles, which are granted for achieving tasks like collecting insects or building items, adds some much-needed structure to the series, while the inclusion of a crafting system also helps to flesh the game out. Add in lots of charming flourishes, and New Horizons proves that Nintendo's cute sim still has plenty of life in it.

Way Too Many Games (Apr 20, 2020)
After a month of playing New Horizons daily, I’m surprised I’m still not sick of it. The hard part is the first couple days, when you need to learn all the new mechanics that differ from the previous installments, but after that, it’s pretty much smooth sailing. Once you unlock the island designer, it becomes a bit overwhelming. You have the ability to sculpt your entire island, and it’s difficult to decide where to start or come up with ideas for your it at times. It never hurts to steal someone else’s ideas and make them your own as well. New Horizons has honestly been an absolute blast to play and I’m excited to see what next big updates comes out for the game.

This latest Animal Crossing delivers the same charm and laidback fun that fans love. Plus, it provides more structure with its nifty Nook Miles system. In the end, this is a game that you'll be glad to pick up and play in short bursts for weeks, months, or even years.

4Players.de (Mar 16, 2020)
Mit Animal Crossing: New Horizons ist Nintendo ein unglaublich charmantes Inselabenteuer gelungen, von dem man sich nur schwer wieder lösen kann. Man erkundet, sammelt, baut, kommuniziert und bestimmt selbst das Spieltempo. Das neue Museum ist eine echte Augenweide, das meilenbasierte Prämienprogramm überraschend motivierend. Hier und da kann man sogar richtig kreativ werden. Zwar ist auch New Horizons ein Spiel, das auf lange Sicht durch seine vielen Wiederholungen langweilen kann. Doch Monotonie und Routine werden immer wieder durch besondere Ereignisse sowie Besucher aufgebrochen. Zudem entdeckt man viele liebevolle Details, wenn man mit bis zu drei Freunden die Gegend unsicher macht. Wer sich eine Konsole teilt, muss sich aber auch die Insel teilen, was man ebenso wie die unverständliche Sprachausgabe kritisieren kann. (...) Aber unterm Strich wird man auf der Insel langfristig gut unterhalten.

It may seem a bit frivolous, but all of the time I spent in the game was time spent avoiding political fights on Twitter, news about how we're ill-equipped to fight the coronavirus, and fretting about the fate of our civilization. Every moment spent in New Horizons is a moment I can breathe a bit easier, which feels like a miracle today.
