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

You will love this game!
1 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In 2002, I was on the internet and came across Animal Crossing on a video game website. I instantly was drawn into this weird, kiddie-looking game. When i first saw the screen shots, i was so excited and knew i wanted this game immediately. Animal Crossing is the game that never ends. Really. It's a game that lives and breathes in real time! Which means, if it's Christmas here, it's Christmas on Animal Crossing! Starting the game, you are on a train, and answer questions to determine what your character will look like. There are many different faces you could end up with. You start out with a small house and by paying your loan to the post office, you could get expansions to your house, like an upstairs or a basement. Animal Crossing offers something most games don't: your own life. In AC, you choose your life! Pick the clothes you wear, put different furniture in your house, or make designs for your shirts or umbrellas! There is so much to do in AC! Fish, hunt for bugs, go to the island, talk to the villagers, mail your friends in your village, by furniture, wallpaper, carpet, and clothes, and even visit other towns with other memory cards! If you have a GameCube, and 20 bucks, buy this game! NOW! WARNING: This game is very addictive!!! -perfect(10/10)
