  1. The feeling of progression and development is a great draw as well.
  2. Not so much a sequel as the Cube version with new features, but still essential for anyone happy to start again.
  3. A lovely game for the right people. It may not appeal to more hardcore gamers, but for anyone else it’s excellent.
  4. Animal Crossing: City Folk is one of the most charming and entertaining life sims out there, with lots to explore and experience.

I hate it when game's get too much *Improvement* because some times it makes a once good series into a bad one people liked previous AC games so Nintendo probably just didn't want to rock the boat! And NO the graphics don't look like crap I personally think they look GREAT! It may be like other AC titles but that doesn't change the fact that it's a great game! Full Review »

It's not fun to live in a wasteland, i don't really recommend this game to animal crossing fans! Full Review »
