Graphics sucks a little bit, with the text and the animations. Sounds are good except the music is not so good but the animalese sounds are ok, except it should sound like WW/CF/NL's animal sounds. And the gameplay is excellent, with making the perfect town, customize your house, etc. but it needs improvement with the slingshots, timer, watering can and stuff. Flowers can't stay perfect forever.
Great game, best in the series.
Animal crossing Gc is a wonderfull never ending game based in your fictional town *town name*. Iv had this game for years and I still play it to this day, it's my favorite game in the series. This game nevers ends and you will probaly keep coming back for more. This is the only game in the series to have playable NES games, making it a free virtual consol.
Final thoughts, this game is great, has lots of reply value as it never ending and is very cheap in the world of video games. I'd recomend this to anyone and this a game you do not want to miss if you own a gamecube.
Great game overall
I remember randomly getting this game because it looked different and because I love simulation games. It was a great choice and I almost cried when my dad went and sold y gamecube without telling me! I have stuck to the series and have all the games (besides the one for Gamecube).
I remember playing this at my aunt's house with my cousins. The fact that the game's $5.99 shocked me. The game is amazing, and I love how bits of it were brought back in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, like Kapp'n on his boat and Rover on his train.
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.
