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

Looks kiddy, but you'll get addicted fast!
14 July 2003 | by (Manchester, Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

Most people are saying that the GameCube is kiddy- system. This is partly true. Nintendo cares about all the people that play video games, so they make all kinds of games. Animal Crossing is one thats intended for everyone, kids can find it fun, teenagers will, too, and even some adults will (my dad plays it all the time). You may look at the graphics and wonder, "What were they smoking when they designed this?" The look is definatley "kid- friendly" and is made to look anything but realistic, but the actual game makes up for it.

You start as a kid who moved away from his parents and went to live with a whole bunch of colorful, fuzzy animals. Once there, you'll get a job, pay off debts for your house, send letters to other animals, find fossils to put in the museum, catch bugs and fish, decorate your own house and much more. This is one of the greatest games I've ever played and I would recomend it to everyone.

My score- 9 out of 10
