Animal Crossing: Wild World
Please, just get this game!
Addicting and fun. These are two little words that are a big deal when it comes to video-games. Luckily, Animal Crossing: Wild World on the Nintendo DS is both fun and addicting. Not only that, but it also has great local and online connectivity, lots of content, and impressive graphics for the DS. So why wouldn't you get Animal Crossing? You start out life moving into town, making friends and working for the local store run by Tom Nook. Very soon after, you finish work. You then can do basically anything you want. Go fishing. Catch bugs. Hunt fossils. Discover secrets. Talk to neighbors. Make money. Shop. Pay off loans to make your house bigger. Deck out your house with cool items. The possibilities are almost endless. After a while, when you made your house about as big as it can get, the game can start to get a bit boring and repetitive. But that won't happen until a while after you start playing. And even when you do end playing, you will surely be back making a new life a month or so later. If you do not already own this game, then please just get it.
Better Games...Better Ages...Still AC
I am 13 in 7th grade now and I still have a compassion for Animal Crossing. There are now more age appropriate games for me in the world, but I still play Animal Crossing. I have always loved the funky characters when I was little, and as I enhanced and became older each year, every game offer was a, "No. Animal Crossing." As you can see, this is an excellent game and you will richly adore it.
You'll never be bored again.
Animal Crossing: Wild World really is the total package. It's simple, easy to pick up and play, yet never ending. It has a role for everyone, and it will keep everyone addicted. So here is the basic story line: you are moving to a new town and starting a new life. The game starts out in a taxi cab. This is where you decide you gender, name, and the town's name. You can personalize a lot in the game and this is where it starts. The entire game is a bit like the Sims and harvest Moon after they have taken a spin in the blender together. There isn't as much customization as you might find in the Sims, but the basic plot of the game is the same: live. Unlike Harvest Moon, this game really is never ending. You won't find yourself in a rut, doing the same thing over, and over, and over again. You can fish, garden, dig, slingshot, and sell your way onto any path you want to take. For example; there are dozens of different species of fish to catch, certain ones only coming out at certain times or in certain seasons. If you catch them then you can add them to the town museum or sell them for profit. This makes the game a constant challenge and something you can play year round and at any time, day or night. The same goes for the insects. The game's realism is a big plus for me. Sure, it doesn't look real and, yeah, your neighbors are animals, but that's why it's called Animal Crossing. The fact that you even have neighbors with different personalities and different homes that move in and out is very realistic in my opinion. The sound is pretty moderate. Nothing special. The music that plays during the game can get very repetitive. However, you can create a theme song for you mini town. There is instant gratification after you have captured something or dug something up made any type of accomplishment. A little jingle that plays, kind of like the one from Zelda, you know, after you open a chest. Ahhh, memories . . . . Controls and interface are pretty good. Above average, but not amazing. The game makes great use of the touch screen. You're not just dragging and dropping or tapping the screen. You can use many different motions for everything from fishing to firing a slingshot. This also makes the game seem realistic. Really, no flaws there. All in all, a really amazing game. If you want a game that you can pick up and put down at anytime, one that is truly never ending, then buy this one. I honestly think that you will play it for years to come, still trying to fill that museum. You will never be bored again.
Animal Crossing Rocks My Socks Off!
Okay, my mom said " If you had to pick one DS game to get, what would you get?" My friend had highly recommended it and said it was the best game ever. "Animal Crossing." I said. Two days later, my mom bought Animal Crossing: Wild World. I was starting to reget my decision. Then, as soon as I got on the game, all doubt washed away. In Animal Crossing, you are a human in a town with a ton of characters that are animals. You get a house and have to pay of the debt: 19,800 Bells (their kind of money). You pay off the money doing odd jobs and selling things. Then when you pay off the debt, the builder makes your house bigger because your house in small, but cozy, at the 1st part of the game. Then you have to pay off another debt :120,00 bells. It gets a lot easier to earn money after a while. I think this is the best game ever! But if you're a guy, you probobly won't like this game, no offense, it's more for girls. If you don't have a DS, this is one of the many reasons to get one!
FUN since 2005
I've had this game since it was released(I was in 5th-6th grade), I'm a senior in high school now, and i still love this game. It's awkwardly addicting and still fun. ^_^
Not as good as animal crossing GC but still good.
Anmal crossing wild world is one of the best ds games out there in my eyes. Animal crossing wild world is about you moving to a strange town filled with living animals. The game takes place in yoru charcter's day to day life. More events are in this game then the orignal though some are gone such as the "spring sports fair" and some locations in town such as the police station and the tropical island are gone aswell. Most of the events are the same though there are some new ones such as a fishing contest and some of the events are diferent such as the gracie car wash event from the first game is now a fashion check event. Graphics: Great for the system, some of the best 3d iv seen on the ds. The portabilty of this game just makes it better.
Final thoughts: I'd highly recomend this to any ds owner as it's a great game for a handheld and even decent for a home consol.
*Note NES games are gone in this game unlike the first due to the nintendo virtual consol service.
my game reveiw
fun game but old game i think its annoying when you dont save cause then it takes for ever to play .
first off this is a great game. it is lowely priced. its time consuming but very worth it. i have this game and another game called "mysims" both of the games have the same ideas but this one is better in my opinion. the game is very innovative in a way that there is special events every day and tournaments and such. you also can participate in holiday activites such as trick or treating. this game is pretty real. this game pretty much wont get boring unless you don't like games based on real life. the main object of the game i think is to complete tasks do events tournaments and also help your town. and pay off a rent for your house. after you completey pay off ur house bill thing you can renovate your house to make it bigger to hold more items. i dont think you can do this in my sims you can also go fishing(and in my sims) but this game makes fishing better. also you can collect a large variety of items. overall this game is great. theres practicly no flaws.
GO ANIMAL CROSSING!f
I got animal crossing a year ago and I am still playing! This game is about this little character you get to be exploring a town full of talking animals! But get this you get to live there! You get to pay mortage and expand your little home into a huge mansion! This is the game to buy. I don't think you'll regret it. But I sometimes get a little bored since it is the same story plot almost everyday. There is WIFI and you can have the friends that have the same game come visit your town. The graphics are pretty amazing for a ds game. It is very realistic and it feels like you live there. Animal Crossing is for all ages. Maybe even for adults. It is not very expensive and there are many cheats to it. All you have to do now is finish reading this and go buy it! I am sure you will enjoy it.
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.
