SummaryThe only game where chores, shopping, and debt are made fun!
The GoodAnimal Crossing has a lot of depth to it, the variety of furniture, neighbors, fish, insects, fossils, paintings, etc goes on forever. As stupid as I feel saying it, you really start to become "attached" to the neighbors in your town and feel a little sad when someone leaves your town (I miss you Alfonso!). The game operates on the real world's time which is also entertaining since you have to wait until a certain time for the shop to open, the events to start, etc. This can easily be gotten around by adjusting your system clock, but what fun is that. : P
The BadThis game is a mere port/translation of a Nintendo 64 game released in Japan...and it shows. The graphics aren't terrible, but a little improvement would of been nice. Also once you go through a few townspeople coming and going, you notice that there are certain "personalities" which are ascribed to several characters and that there really is no difference between a bear and a frog other than their appearance. Finally, when visiting another friend's town you cant see your friend there. You can just run around their town and talk to their townspeople. I would have appreciated something like LAN play to be able to run around each other's towns together.
