Animal Crossing: City Folk - Game Only
I've been an Animal Crossing fan since day one, and I've bought every single Animal Crossing game that has come out. In fact, part of the reason I bought a Wii was so I could try the new AC game. That was 2 years ago, so I had to wait a little longer for this game than expected. To be honest, I knew whether or not this game was good, I was going to buy it anyway. I was just hoping it was better than Wild World which was simply an utter disappointment. Thankfully, it was. The new Animal Crossing must've been at least 10 times better than WW. But when I compare it to the original AC, which was far better than WW I'd have to say that the two were pretty equally matched. Customize your appearance- I like the fact that you can wear hats and other accessories that don't have the same pattern as your shirt, unlike in the original one where your hat always matched your outfit and you could only wear a cone hat (girl) or a viking hat (boy). Clothes- Another great thing was the new "Pro" feature that was available when creating designs for clothing. Now for a small fee, you can make different patterns on one side of the shirt and a different pattern on the other side, and the sleeves can also be different colors. Unlike in the original one, where the pattern you made would be on the front, back and sleeves. The only problem with this of course is the fact that the "Pro" method only works on shirts, not umbrellas, hats, etc. But if you're working on an umbrella or hat design, you don't have to pay money for it this time like in the other AC. You also get to see how your design looks before you finish making it, so you don't end up wasting money on an ugly design. Holidays- I LOVE the holidays in this game, and was relieved to see they brought them back from WW. This game has all of the holidays the original had, plus a couple of new ones like the candy festival and bunny day (Easter) although I was hoping that by some miracle they would add in a Hanukkah-themed holiday... But all of those lovable characters like Franklin the Turkey and Jingles the Reindeer are back once again. New Items- Like in WW, they added a lot of new furniture, furniture sets, new clothes and accessories, as well as new fish and insects to catch as well as the silver version of tools. (Shovel, Net, Fishing Rod, etc.) New characters- There are quite a few new faces in this installment, some who are new neighbors and others who are holiday characters or characters who live in the city. Upgrading your town- This part I thought was pretty clever, because even after you payed off your debt to Nook, you still had something to do. You and any other human who lives in town with you can make donations to the town. This is pretty cool because you can the wishing well back from the original AC and you have your choice of getting a Lighthouse like in the original or a windmill. New ways to handle money- I thought it was pretty cute that now you have ATM machines in the city and at the bank. You also get your own credit card. Though it doesn't work exactly the same way a real one does... Graphics- I felt the graphics were slightly better, and the colors were very vibrant. Human houses are scattered throughout the town- I thought this was a nice change, because I didn't like the fact that the houses for the humans were always in the same place, right next to each other. Now one character can live by Elmer, and one character can live by Teddy. The barber is available right away- I enjoyed that you could get your hair changed right away in the game instead of having to wait until the town shop got upgraded. There were of course the few downsides that this game had as well. The City- Not really my favorite. I was sort of expecting the city to be bigger with more stores. To be honest, there isn't a lot to do there, unless you have lots of money to throw away, or have a ton of friends who own this game who have lots of money to throw away. Of course, it is fun t
This was the first game I bought in the animal crossing series and I have played it for years! The graphics are great, the music is sensational, and the gameplay is great! I love the feature where you can go to the city. It gives you lots of variety of the types of stores you can visit. I also love that you don't have to share a house with the other players. It is truly great!
SO PERFECT, except a MAJOR glitch. DON'T BUY.
As you can see, everything about this game is great. When I was a kid I played Wild World, and I wanted to get to play Animal Crossing again. So since I didn't have a 3DS for New Leaf, I figured I'd get this game for my Wii. Everything was great until I found out a horrible feature Nintendo added in, not realizing it'd be such a problem. The grass in this game deteriorates drastically. If you run, it will go away quickly. Which doesn't make sense to me, because walking everywhere would take forever. If the grass is gone, first your town looks like a hideous desert, and certain bugs won't show up, and in the winter you can't make a snow man because snowballs only form on grass patches. The grass deteriorating feature was supposed to be so you could make your own paths in the game, but I know for me at least, I never run in the exact same places every day. It's an annoying feature that for me has made me give up on the game, since after a few weeks I can already see my grass going away. Grass also takes a very long time to grow back. Do not get this game, if I had known about this feature I wouldn't have bought it myself.
Too much like its predecessor, Wild World for DS
City Folk has hardly brought anything new to the series in comparison to Wild World. Only differences is that players get their own smaller, separate houses and that graphics were updated a bit. I do not recommend this game at all for those who played Wild World. Even if you haven't played Wild World and if you have a Wii that's backwards compatible with GameCube game just get the original gamecube version with a gamecube controller and memory card. If you have a 3DS, skip Wild World and go straight for New Leaf.
Best game ever XD
This game is suitable for all viewers :) Any kid could play this game because it is appropriate. It teaches you financial skills, along with knowing how to buy a house. You are able to earn your own money, and celebrate several occasions. We would recommend this game to all gaming types. Its casual, fun to play when you are stressed, and just when you want to relax! Any age can play it, that's an amazing part of this game, along with being able to play whenever you want, and always finding a new adventure around the corner. So many hints and secrets :) Thank you for providing our families with an amazing game. XD
HEY, THERES ANIMAL CROSSING HERE!!! BEEP BEEP!!!!
Animal Crossing Wii is a blend of modern and outdoor activity fun! There many things you can do in animal crossing such as work in a store or go fishing or catch insects. You can even own a house and make your house suitable and whatever you want it to look and be like. You can buy clothing and change whatever you want to like. You can look like a loyal Samurai or a cool dirty pirate. Best of all, the main thing in Animal Crossing is that you can own a town. Name it, decorate it, anything. There are endless activities and possibilities in Animal Crossing. Not to mention your imagination too. I mean there are adorable animals that walks on 2 legs and talks. This is a must have for Animal Crossing fans!! THUMBS UP IF YOU'RE STILL PLAYING THIS IN 2013!!!
i love it
i love this game it is addicting. You can ecscape the reall world to go to this paradise.... just watch out for bees.
This game is awesome but it get boring after you pay your house off and it could use more things....
A nice addition to the franchise with minor faults
I've been a fan of the Animal Crossing series since the very first game for the Gamecube, and it'll always be one of my absolute favorite games. The original was great but limited. Wild Word heavily expanded on the first game by adding so many new features and greatly improving on the ones already in place. City Folk, while being a good sequel, however, did not have as much of an impact, and I feel its actually the weakest game in the series. I will say that City Folk did deliver some great new features that have ultimately improved the series though. For one thing, the addition of Pro Designs was a welcome feature that really allowed those with excess creativity to really show it off. Being able to talk with fellow players over WiiSpeak was also a nice change for the series. The City aspect was great in theory, but actually left the least impact for me. It was lacking. You'd go there, and maybe have 2-3 things to do per trip. All in all, City Folk was pretty decent, but with the removal of some of the best features (such as having a huge mansion house), it fell short of being the "Next Gen" of Animal Crossing. Even so, I did enjoy the game enough to warrant buying Animal Crossing New Leaf, which looks the be the epitome of the Animal Crossing Franchise, and I can't wait for the next installment. It promises to be the best one so far with tons of new features, and even bringing back the best features from all the past games.
It made its point... Live like you were in AC:CF!!
Many of the features I did not get experience. But no worries i have been a gamer since day one, and this game has taught me lessons in life. Pay your Debts. Make good friends! Learn to keep your head up when the friends you love have moved on. Have animals in your life. Neighbors can be such a pain. Errands will get you far in the real world. NEVER DRINK THE PIGEON MILK!!!!! O.o. Given enough coffee you could rule the world. Plant trees. Be a tree hugger. Bees are not Friendly!!!! Take your Medicine!!! (If prescribed) Don't lose your keys in the river. Stay away from Scorpions and Turantullas at night when you are out N about. Keep your stuff organized!!!! HATE ALL RACCOONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dont run!! These are the things that make life simple... :)
