Product Details:

If life were an endless vacation, what would you do? Go fishing, collect shells or watch fireworks with friends? Build a snowman, exchange presents with family or decorate your house for the holidays? Take a trip to the city, go on a shopping spree or visit friends from all over the globe? In Animal Crossing: City Folk, life moves at a relaxed pace, but the world brims with endless possibilities.

  • There's always something new to do. In the living, breathing world of Animal Crossing: City Folk, days and seasons pass in real time, so there's always something to discover. Catch fireflies in the summer, go trick-or-treating on Halloween or hunt for eggs on Bunny Day. If you're in the mood for something a little faster paced, take a bus to a new urban city area that's unique to Animal Crossing: City Folk. There you can catch a show at the theater or check out the sales at Gracie's boutique. But if you don't show your face back home for too long, your neighbors will miss you.
  • Up to four people from your household can live and work together to build the perfect town. Design clothes and patterns, write letters and post messages on the bulletin board for each other, or invite up to three friends to visit your town using Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. With the new WiiSpeak microphone, it's like you're all in the same room. The microphone sits atop the sensor bar and picks up the conversation of everyone in the room to encourage a more inclusive experience.
  • Get to know your neighbors. The heart of Animal Crossing: City Folk is building relationships with the animals in your town as well as with other players. Befriend your animal neighbors by exchanging letters, gifts and favors. Animals can also move from town to town, bringing their memories and stories from their old towns with them. And since animals are notoriously loose-lipped, they spill all the juicy details.
  • Express your personal style. Customize your town, your house and yourself by collecting bugs, fish, fossils, art, furniture, clothes and accessories. You can also go to the salon in the city to change your hairstyle and get a Mii? makeover. Plus, if you design clothes in the tailor's shop, animals will wear them and maybe even bring them to other towns.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent game and I'm an adult Got hooked on this game through my grandchildren. The game could appeal to more if the positives of what the game could do teach earning money, buying "stuff" for homes and apparel and food and plants, hobbies of fishing, gardening, etc. Kids could learn about many things and incorporating a school house into the buildings and offer learning activities, adding a fire and/or police station, expand the houses so there are specific areas for dinning, rec room, etc. The platform has lots of potential but the does Nintendo want to explore and expand the game. Probably not but it's a shame.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Escape from real life with Animal Crossing Animal Crossing is game that captured my interest several months ago. Because I only got my Wii Mini in November, I never got a chance to play any Animal Crossing game. After I discovered Animal Crossing: New Leaf, I was disappointed that it was for a system I don't have (Yet. June better get here quick, so I can get my 3DS), but after doing research I discovered it's Wii title, Animal Crossing: City Folk. I was overjoyed! When I got it, well, at first, I wasn't very impressed. After playing it for a while, I got very bored. But, this is a simulation game, so I shouldn't have expected much. I almost considered trading it in for something else. HOWEVER, that was just the first day. Before I traded it in, I decided to give a few more days, to make sure I really wanted to get rid of it. The more and more I played it, the more I liked it. I got this game in early November; it is now early April, and I am loving it. One of the best things about this game is that almost everything is customizable, all the way to the inside of your house, to what your character looks like, right down to changing the town tune and your villagers catchphrases... Well, only if they ask for it, that is. Another great thing is, is that this game relays on real time from the Wii's internal clock, so if it's night in real life, then will be night in game. Even the shops open and close during certain hours. You can also celebrate holiday's in game, too! Even your own birthday! And on Saturday nights you can go to the roost and listen to K.K. Slider's songs. All of the character's in game all have different personalities. For example, Lolly is a preppy villager, so she'll be easy to befriend, but Astrid is a snooty villager, so she might not get along with Lolly, and she'll be a bit harder to befriend. But the problem here is, is that you can only have up to eight villagers at a time. This will not change if you make another account. The only time when you can get more is if you are just starting out when you only have six of them, or wait for one to move out. This can be emotionally painful if a villager you like moves out. Did you know that this game can actually help you improve money management skills? Well, kinda. When you start, you are asked to find a house and then go pay off whatever amount bells (the currency) you're asked to get. And it can get a bit outrageous. I was asked to pay off 260,000 bells to upgrade my house, and I still have another 170,000 or so pay off. And the more you upgrade, the higher the cost, of course. At least you don't have a time limit to pay it all off, so you can take your time doing so. Just don't forget that you still have to pay it off to finish your house. Or go blow it all off on things you really don't need. The graphics? Well, they're pretty good for a Wii game, and some of the past few games I've gotten tend to look pretty polygon-y, but, sadly, this also goes into that category of looking like a PS1 game. But I think the cutesy factor makes that fact a bit easier to swallow. Now, if you can do me favor, can you scroll up and see the thing that says if I would recommend this to friend? I said no, because this game does take up a lot of time. If you really like it, you'll probably spend about 4 hours at most playing it. Also, this game is for casual gamers, no skill needed to play it. But the main reason why I said "no" is because I know my friends would not like this game. One plays Sonic the Hedgehog and the other play's Legend of Zelda and Pokemon, and both tend to be fairly busy. But if you know a friend who would like this, then go ahead suggest it. So does Animal Crossing:City Folk get the stamp of approval? You bet it does. When real life gets boring, you can always visit your town for a break from reality. Go see how your villagers are doing, go upgrade your house, go find some fossils for the museum, etc.. But most importantly, have fun and enjoy your new life in Animal Crossing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm astounded! 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!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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
