Still the best!
This is my favorite game and I still play it almost every day (yes I have taken breaks from it, but always seem to come back wanting more after I've been away for awhile). I still love this version of Animal Crossing the best - I own and have played all other US versions and continue to look forward to new releases, but feel they got it right the first time and haven't been able to capture the pure joy of that experience in subsequent releases. I keep hoping for the return of acres, I am really starting to dislike the world as a giant rolling log. Anyway, this is the quitissential Animal Crossing, how it was and hopefully will be again in future releases. The background music in this version is also the best and hasn't been done quite right since. It really helps to immerse you in the gameworld and adds so much to the overall feeling of the game. If you've played Wild World and/or City Folk but have not gone back to where it all started, I HIGHLY recommend you do so.
AWESOME GAMECUBE GAME AND U CAN FIND CHEATS!!!
Now if U asked me how I rate this game! Well, I would say it's the AWESOMEST GAME EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This game is a classic for most people who played on the GameCube. It's graphics aren't the greatest! (Probably from the fact that it was meant to come out on the Nintendo 64!) But it's fun to play for about a half hour or so each day, and is more relaxing than most other games out there. Lots of other people have good reviews on this game, so I'll end mine and let you read some more.
Fun Game for Everybody.
This is my first review on GameStop.com, so it might not be very good.
Animal Crossing is a game that was released in Japan for the N64, and was roughly translated as Animal Forest. It was then later released in the US for the GCN known as Animal Crossing.
The game is endless and includes an actual 24 hour clock. Meaning that the in-game time would be the same as the players time.
In Animal Crossing, you are a young boy or young girl who is moving into town, and you must start a new life there.
You can choose weather you are a boy or a girl in the beggining of the game when a cat named Rover, askes who your name is. You can also name the town you are going to.
Once you arrive at your destination you are greeted by Tom Nook, the owner of Nook's Cranny. He has been waiting for you because he had heard you have been moving, but you don't have a place to stay. He leads you to 4 houses and asks you to pick one of the houses you want to have.
Once you enter and exit a house, Tom Nook will asks you if this is the house you would like. If you say "No", he won't give you the house. If you say "Yes", then he'll give you the house.
However, Tom Nook then realizes that you do not have enough money to buy the house.
The House cost 19, 800 (I think.) But you only have 1000 bells. So you still need to pay 18, 800 bells.
Tom Nook then asks you to come to the shop to pay the rest of the cost, but when you complete the job, you still don't have enough money! So, the rest of the game is just you living your new life in your town.
The Gameplay is perfect. You move your character with the Control Stick, you run with the L , R, or B button, you open your math with X, you open why for your inventory, fish, and bugs. Finally, you use to A button to shake trees and do other things. The controlls did not bug me at all. I thought they were great.
The Graphics look pretty good, but I say the Wii versions graphics are the best so far.
Overall, Animal Crossing is an excellent game for you to pick up.
Rating: 9.0 Excellent
An Old Classic
Animal Crossing is a sim game where you play as a new member of a small town. Your days are comprised of earning bells (money), planting flowers and trees, fishing, digging, and handling menial labor tasks for the other resident.
There is a lot of stuff that you can collect in this game and can work towards. So, the game itself has a lot of lasting appeal if your into collecting stuff.
The best in the Animal Crossing Series!
This is the game that started it all, I believe, if you want to introduce yourself, or someone else, to Animal Crossing you should start with this game. Wild World (for the Ds) and City Folk (for the wii) are all great, but those games lack some great features the original has.
Not Bad at all
The game was ok.But it was the best gamecube game I ever played.I love all the game in the seires and I enjoy playing them.
My All-Time Favorite Game!
I seriously love this game! Its nearly impossible to get frustrated with it! You come into town on a train and talk to Rover, where you name yourself and name the town. Then, you come into town and meet Tom Nook, where you pick a house and soon work for him! I didnt exactly like working for Mr. Nook, but after i was done, I was OBSESSED with the game! I like to check out Nook's place everyday and go fishing and dig for fossils and mail them to The Museum. Then, i get my brothers Memory card and go to his town, where i get a ton of fruit and see what nook has in that shop! I am working on my 3rd morgage! But im 40,000 bells away so i aim for a ton of bells! I hope you enjoy this game as much as i do!
My childhood in one game.
Where do I begin? I remember me being at the age of a wee little 7 year old and playing this game. It was fabulous. I have not played it in over 3 years, for my gaming disk got super scratched. But I'm picking it up tommorow and me and my childhood will be RECONNECTED!!! I just remember being jealous of my sister because she had a 4 story house and I only had a 2 story house! I remember there was the one character you could talk to and you could change his little motto whenever you talked to him and bothered him enough. I remember I changed it to "Sweet Gril", and I meant to make it "Sweet Girl"... WHOOPS! I remember shaking trees and getting chased by bees... I also remember going to visit other peoples towns and being on the trains. This game was just great, every aspect of it. It was a huge part of my young ages and I can't wait to pick it back up!
BEST GAME EVER!
Alriiiiiight! Blah, blah, blah... this review is gonna be SERIOUSLY long, so be prepared~! I was pretty young, maybe 8 or 7 (or younger!) when my brother bought a GameCube! The discs are expensive sometimes, but this is a really good deal! Six bucks for this game? Holy crapola~ now back to my story! I was pretty young when my bro bought a GameCube, or maybe it was waywayway before that and I just started to share an interest in gaming. I don't remember. So Animal Crossing was a game I played, and let me tell you this now: IT'S THE BEST GAME EVER. Then my GameCube broke, or my bro's GameCube, whichever way you wish to put it. I remember when I got this igloo/snow bunny, I'm not sure which one. Adorable, though. I was pretty happy! And I always changed the month just for the heck of it. You can dig and shake trees, too. It's so fun to go to Nook's after the month changes to get new stuff. It's so cool when it rains! If you have an umbrella, you can twirl it. The rain is so peaceful. ^_^ GEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET THIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIS GAME!
