Lego Dimensions


Lego Dimensions is the year’s best toys-to-life game, injecting the \r\nbuildable fun of Lego toys into a hilarious adventure that sees Batman \r\nfighting side-by-side with Gandalf, Doctor Who, Homer Simpson, Scooby \r\nDoo, Portal’s...

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer review


Unlike other Animal Crossing games, Happy Home Designer doesn't just drop you off in the middle of nowhere with a massive amount of debt to pay. Nor does it have a 24-hour day cycle, fauna to catch, or bells to earn. What it does have, however, is one...

So many furniture options; You can customise items with your own patterns; The villagers are hilarious

You can't ever do badly; You don't have as much freedom as in New Leaf

Utterly charming with a fantastic set of design tools, but it'll make you crave the freedom of more traditional Animal Crossing games.

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer Review


On paper, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer turns one of the most addictive parts of the Animal Crossing formula—building a home from scratch—into an appealing offshoot. As a newly-minted employee of Nook's Homes, you must seek out adorable,...

Expanded item catalog; New touchscreen controls; Can design yards

Doesn't reward effort in designs; Doing the bare minimum receives top marks; Extremely limited in breadth; No open field, only a central hub; New Leaf is better at the same price; No StreetPass functionality

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer review


Walking into a broken home.

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer is a cute, fun creation experience, but absolutely do not buy it. It should be DLC for A New Leaf, and would have added a cool element to the full experience. As a standalone game, it loses all that is great about...

Good addition to game


These cards are great to get extra villagers and get one back if it leaves your town. The only downside is if you pay out for a pack that has duplicates of ones you already have.

Amiibo cards


I paid £3.29 for this item and it was in brilliant condition, as always with Argos! Would highly recommend buying these items especially from here and I would definitely buy from here again.

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer NFC Cards Wave 1.


I bought these series three cards which are nice but the one special card in the pack was the same that I got in series one, which I think they shouldn't be repeated in different series.
