Animal Crossing

Step into the world of Animal Crossing, where villagers live their everyday lives in time with an actual 24-hour clock.

To become a part of the thriving village community, you'll get a job, buy a house and interact with other villagers, some of which can be controlled by friends and family. As you collect furnishings for your own house, check out what other villagers have collected for their houses. Build relationships by talking to other villagers, helping them with tasks and writing letters back and forth. Throughout the game, you'll collect an assortment of items and artifacts and different plants and animals. To ensure it will be a desirable place for people to live, help to keep your village beautiful.

Features

Visit the village often throughout the day, because different activities happen at different times; plus, special things sometimes happen on holidays.
Interact with others-up to four other players can move into the village and take turns playing in a shared village, cooperating and competing on one game pak.
Swap Memory Cards with friends who have the game and travel to their villages to interact with different characters there. In other villages, players find different assortments of items and build new relationships with different groups of villagers.

I read the review. It sounds exactly the same as the ds version (apart from wi-fi) but whenever I go on the ds version (no, I don't hav it on gc) nowadays all I seem to do is sell fruit.

Animal crossing is fun at first but after you "win" (pay all your debt and get the last house) tt gets boring. I haven't played it for almost 2 years since then.

The best thing about this one is the NES games and it feels more classic. Overall, I like City Folk better though.
