I can't really say don't get this if you have the ds version, I have both and play on both regularly, I agree with a lot of people that the lack of innovation is dissapointing and I think it is due to lazyness to be honest, and perhaps lack of money allocated to the product, I don't know. It is such a strange game as it appeals to people of all ages and gender, it depends more on the type of gamer you are rather than all that. For example if you are used to hacking off alien limbs in gears of war, there is a slight chance you will despise this cutsey thing where not much goes on. If you're the type of person who loves collection quest in games, this is the game for you as this is essestially what it is, though its a lot more fun than that description is! I get so excited looking in Nook's and Able sisters everyday. If you are strugging to find a quality game for your youngsters that everyone will enjoy, this is the one.
