Animal Crossing, the new life simulation game from Nintendo, places you in a virtual village where you can interact with other characters, go fishing, look for treasure, decorate your house, and much more. The town starts off as a modest little burg with barely any citizens, and it's your job to help it grow into an appealing and bustling community. The game uses the Gamecube's internal clock to a great extent; the town reflects the time of day and year in the real world, and there are even special events that happen on actual holidays! Get ready to leave your old life behind - welcome to Animal Crossing! Written by axemblue

User Reviews

extremely fun and addicting.
7 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

animal crossing is a great game. basically, it an open ended life video game, you pay off debts, furnish your house, talk to neighbors, and even go fishing. one of my favorite features about it is the fact that it goes by in real time, whether your playing or not. And, the holidays are recognized in the game; the animals in the game will always be wishing you a merry Christmas when it actually is Christmas, or fooling you when its April fools day. My only complaint is that sometimes; when you talk to someone, it can get extremely boring; they won't stop talking! so overall, if you like "life" games, definitely play this one. its probably the best out there. it should be noted, though, that there is no ending to it. And, its never really challenging. But still, be sure to check this one out. its the type of game that's good for playing almost all the time; especially when your bored. it will surely keep you entertained for quite a while.
