Product Details:

Move into a living, breathing world... and invite friends to visit from anywhere on earth. Days and seasons pass in real time, so whether you want to decorate your home, catch bugs or fish, or just chat with the characters in your village, there's always something to do.

* Players and up to three friends can hang out in the same village and interact in real time - either through wireless LAN or over Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Now players can visit a friend's village from thousands of miles away.

* The touch screen simplifies item management and world navigation. Tap the touch screen to type letters, draw designs for clothing or wallpaper, drag clothing or items onto characters or just lead them around the world.

* Much of the cast of the original Animal Crossing returns, including animals of all shapes and personality types: K.K. Slider, Tom Nook, Blathers, Mr. Resetti and more. There are also a number of new characters.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I wouldn't know anything about it. I ordered this game for my little sister for Christmas and it came today. I decided it would be a good idea to test the game before gifting it, and boy was that a good idea. It turns out that it didn't work AT ALL. It won't even register as being a game on my main screen. I can't judge anything about the game without a working copy. The circuits seemed a little rusty too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best DS games ever This game is amazing, even today after the WI-FI service for this game has shut down, you can always play lan with your friends, and family, theres always something for you to do everyday, the gameplay is amazing, and the more you play the more addicting it gets! so i really recommend it, even if you have New Leaf, it still holds up today and takes you back to 2005 when gaming was simpler, its really fun and a must get.

Do you want to get your home to the max growth and make it just right? Do you want to make friends with your villagers or harrass them? Do you want to make your avatar just right? well you can do all that in animal crossing!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bleak Ands Unamusing This game is basically like sims. It's boring and bleak and has pretty much no flavor as a video game. Now, I know there are people out there who actually like sims and animal crossing. But it's just my opinion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A life simulator that can make you appreciate life Life simulators are quite popular in gaming. One of the most well known life simulators is the game franchise called the Sims. This franchise has sold over 100 million copies worldwide. Another well known life simulator franchise is Animal Crossing. Animal Crossing: Wild World is the first game in the franchise on a handheld. This game centers around living in a small town populated with anthropomorphic animals. Which is rather odd since the character you play as is a human. Thankfully the townsfolk has no prejudice towards your species. What makes Animal Crossing unique is that while there are goals you can achieve, you can pretty much do what the game allows you to do. You can talk to the townsfolk, decorate your house, plant trees in the village, and more. The "main" goal is to pay off your house debt. However, it's not that hard to accomplish. There are many ways to collect bells, the game's currency. You can shake trees to make money fall down(insert "money does grows on tress" here), help the townsfolk with favors, and you can also go to the shopping mart and give the owner some items in exchange for bells. Even though there are lots of ways to earn money, paying off the debt will take some time to complete. Fortunately, unlike in real life, there are no late fees or due dates, so the debt will never grow. While you're paying off your debt, you can also do some more stuff like chatting with the townsfolk or donating bugs, fish, and fossils to a museum. The townsfolk are varied in terms of personality. They're either into working out, becoming celebrities, or just want furniture. They can even leave your town if they decide they aren't satisfied with this place. Be careful, even some townsfolk you really like can leave. On the bright side, you can tell them to not leave by going to their house, see if there's boxes, and asking them what's up. If they say they're planning on leaving the game will give you the option to say farewell to them or tell them to stay. You can also go to a museum and give bugs, fish, and fossils to an owl called Blathers as donations. Like many things in the game, it's optional yet this one is quite satisfying since you can see the high amount of help you've given by going to the following exhibits available to see. And you go in the exhibits for free! Sometimes there will be special people or events to mix things up. This usually happens near the town hall, and there's a billboard near town hall that informs you about some events in the future. Some events can happen at random like a cat that can predict the future or a giraffe that ranks your taste in fashion. You can also use the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection to enter different towns or let some of your friends enter your town. Even once you pay off your debt, you can still do shopping, donating, and more. And unlike other video games where you once you beat them it feels like it's over, you still feel like there's more to do in this game and there always will be. There's more you can experience, so this game will surely keep you coming back for new surprises. Now even though I've said a lot of promising things to say about this game, I'm still a bit hesitant to say you should purchase it. Don't get me wrong here. This is a fun game, but this isn't the only game in the franchise. It's predecessor was basically the same game, but on a console. And with the recent installment in the franchise allowing you to play as the town's mayor, it's hard to recommend this version over the other titles. I still play this version because it's the only one I have, and I'm not very interested to try out the other versions. This title might even be the weakest due to its frame-rate. This may sound sound like a nitpick, but the other versions had more smoother frame-rates, and that's just from the footage I've seen online. This game is portable, but so is the recent tile. Even then, playing Animal Crossing on a console you can only play at home or someone's house possibly wouldn't ruin the experience that much. Like how playing Mario on a console will give you the same amount of sanctification as playing it on a handheld. Still, if you're unable to try out the other Animal Crossing tiles, then this game is worth playing. But if you're able to try out the other titles, then try those instead first. They're basically this game with a smoother frame-rate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's great but it can get a little boring at times I loved this game ok, but since it isn't like New Leaf or City Folk or the GameCube version where you can go somewhere outside of your town to do something different without going to a friend's town. You have to go to a friend's town to get out of your town. You can't go to Resort Island or go to the city. Plus, the graphics were kind of grainy and you couldn't really make out what was what. but overall, I was very impressed. However, I got Animal Crossing: Wild World used from Gamestop, and it would keep freezing up and I would have to reset and Mr. Resetti would come over to my house and scream at me so it was kind of annoying that it did that.
