I purchased this game after I got all the others including New Leaf. This game (I think) is the 2nd best in the series. With Wild World, you are isolated inside your town unless you have a friend to play with. There isn't much to do except the occasional festival here and there. Also, considering that all the characters on the card have to SHARE a house, I think that Nintendo was doing a budget-cut when they made this game. City Folk has more to do, like going to the city. But there is not really much else. In the first Animal Crossing game, you can visit another town with just a second game card. (As long as it has 5 blocks of available memory on it.) All of the buildings aren't facing the same direction like in the other games, which seems more realistic. The intricate details that the designers put in this game are definitely lacking in the rest of the games. The many events and festivals that they put in are nice, such as the Sports Fair, the monthly raffles, and the morning exercise programs in the summer. The codes that you can give to Tom Nook in exchange for prizes are fun to work with, but be careful not to enter the glitch codes; they will make your game go haywire! I would recommend this game to anyone!
Animal Crossing was a classic
I still remember watching the old commercials with my sister. We usually always played the Sims together and said it would be so much funner if you could actually walk around instead of just clicking stuff to do. So we decided to give this one a try, thinking this would probably be a whole lot more fun than the Sims. I remember everyone staring at me because i Was about 20 years old at the time and buying a game that looked very kiddish, but I knew this game would be a blast. We went and picked it up the day it came out, and have both loved the game ever since. It's a game for everyone. I remember just about my whole family lived in my town. My mom, sister, brother, and me. It's a whole lot of fun for just about anyone, and for this low a price it's a steal. Pick it up! You won't regret it!
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!
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!
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.
Cool realistic game!
Animal Crossing is by far the most adapting game I've ever played! It kind of connects to the real world because of the "bills", neighborhoods and jobs! What I enjoyed the most was the freedom I was given. It's pretty much your world where everything is under your control. Customizing your character and house also showed the personality of your character. There were also different occasions that you could attend, like in the real world, and could acquire special items. What I didn't enjoy was when you start the game there is a lot of waiting! I wouldn't call them cut scenes, but there was a lot of rules and tips that took forever to get through. Now about the game controls. It was very easy to maneuver your character, but at times confusing. Sound was okay and graphics were really spectacular! The best thing was the realism, of course.
Best simulation game you'll ever play!
Animal Crossing is the premiere mixture of cuteness, realism, and variety. The graphics are very good, considering that this is actually an emulation of Dubutsimorri (or something like that: It means Animal Forest) that first came out on N64 in JAPANESE! Yep, those Japanese make some pretty up to snuff games! I've played that one a bit, and the graphics are exactly the same (note, I do not speak Japanese). I love RPGs, but simulations come in a close second, strategy third! The realism, of course, has to take a hit because 1. It has talking animals and 2. The boys have horns sticking out of their heads, why, I can only imagine. The controls, I found, are tedious at the beginning. However, once you get used to it, it is quite easy. The interface is satisfactory as well. For any RPG or simulation game, interface is key! One con, though... the music gets on my nerves sometimes, but I look past it. Should you shell out your hard earned cash for this game? YES!
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!
Animals, Money, Shovels, Oh Boy!
This game, was, and is my number one GC game. Just that fact that there is NO other game that has a 24 hour clock, No other game is as unique as this one! Run around and get jobs, run errands, live another life! Catch bugs, fish, you can dig up fossils! Ahh, i remember staying up till 10 every weekend and play this till i passed out. This game will keep you occupied for hours, and you will never EVER wanna stop. Every animal is so cute!! There'll be animal's that are bratty, annoying, and there's fun, cute one's as well. I just can't express how amazing this game is. If you have a WII, Gamecube, Or DS, You NEED you buy this game.
Animal Crossing has always been my Favorite Game
There are few words able to describe Animal Crossing. This game is The Greatest Game Of All Time! And it always will be. No matter how old it is; or how many other better gaming systems have come out. Animal Crossing still, and always will, mantain its title of My Favorite Game. One of the greatest things about this game is the fact that it apeals to almost everyone. I seriously believe any person who plays Animal Crossing will be highly satisfied. Everything about it is great. There is so much to do in the game: talk to the other characters, collect fossils, fish, insects and fruit, upgrade the local shop, furnish your house, accesserize your character, and upgrade your house. It's possible to play this game hours each day; it's that great. Just wanted to say how much fun I had with this game. There isn't another game like Animal Crossing.
