Review: Disney Dreamlight Valley is a wonderful Animal Crossing alternative

Dreamlight Valley is 'Disney meets Animal Crossing', but there's more to it than that. With a healthy supply of quests on top of the usual foraging, crafting and house-building, there's a proper story here too for any players who want a goal to aim towards.

  • 17 characters at launch, each with their own individual quest-based story campaigns
  • Home decoration is impressive, with infinite storage and many more rooms than Animal Crossing
  • Wonderful soundtrack incorporating each character's respective Disney films
  • Only monetisation (so far) is an unobtrusive season pass
  • Has enough bugs to give Timon and Pumbaa indigestion
4 / 5
