Is it just me or does anyone else also feel that Animal Crossing Pocket Camp is a disappointment?

I've been playing it for about a month now and the game is just not deep enough, in my opinion, to even be called a real game. Honestly, it feels more on the level of a "demo" game.

Yet, despite being such a shallow game, it's not shy on selling items and packages to you immediately. There is no pacing at all. Immediately upon joining the game for the first time you are presented to buy things when you still have no clue what the game is about. This sickens me to the core because it's the mobile version of being harassed by sales people immediately upon entering a store. It's deplorable.

Their next mistake is the in-game packages/offerings. Not proportional to the value of the game in its current state at all. My condolences to anyone who has purchased anything — and even more unthinkable, to anyone who subscribed to the monthly plans.

Nintendo, shame on you! Really. Animal Crossing deserves better than this!

Please don't drive this beloved franchise into the ground more than you have.

Perhaps I'm misunderstanding somewhere, but is the game not free? So it would cost nothing to try it and uninstall if you don't like the package? Hardly deplorable or sickening if you ask me.

You guys had me at blood and semen.

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.

@Woody5 You are right and I agree so I uninstalled it. But yes, you described it perfectly.

It is crazy that you mostly waste your time on cookies to try to get something you want. The game got so boring for me, l stopped playing it and also because that game was updating like every week which took up more memory. Imo not much you can do in the game really that is fun.

Well Animal Crossing May redeem itself when new horizons comes out on the Switch. The mobile game was cute but not worth it to keep playing.

While there was talk that Animal Crossing would never be tainted with microtransactions/DLC a few years ago, Nintendo have shown us that nothing is sacred with Pokémon Sword/Shield (where similar remarks were said about the Pokémon franchise in the past), and it certainly wouldn't surprise me to see Animal Crossing go in that direction as well.

With that said, I would have considered paying for Pocket Camp had there been a "complete" version that could be purchased, or that any purchases pertained to content that is permanently unlocked and entails no further monetisation, but I have been burned by a certain Pokémon F2P game that shall remain nameless, and that is a rabbit hole I do not intend to ever dive into again.

I think it’s just a fact of life that the games that are free to play will have some form of micro transactions. The company will try to get money out of you some how. The golden rule of gaming is nothing is never really free.
