    When I first played this game I was expecting to be bored out of my mind, but was surprised to find out that this is a very fun game for both casual and hardcore gamers alike. There's a surprising amount of freedom (I just wish I could decorate my bedroom) and content in this game, and it's got loads of charm. It will keep you coming back every day.

    This is a great game. It looks and feels great, much better then the previous installments. However there isn't much to keep vets coming back after some goals are accomplished. While annoying the grass growth problem is not impossible to overcome, and the smaller amount of villagers isn't an issue either. The wi-fi connectivity is great; visiting friends is now easy, and the DLC is a nice addition. Must buy for any Wii owner. Expand

    This was the game I was hooked on for five months, wasting all my free-time on it. This and the original game boy are my favorite and I was happy when this came out because the DS version disappointed me greatly. This new one adds a lot more new events, a whole different area and more whacky characters to explore and discover. The game was exactly what you might think at looking at it, "weird", but it's amazingly fun and addictive. Expand

    Wake up, reviewers -- this is NOT a remake. No, this game, if anything, is an improvement. Between the original and Wild World, there were several big changes -- most of which were reacted to positively. So why do you shoot City Folk down because so much is the same? There are more new things than ever before! There's new furniture, new things to catch, and even new events. You can even go to a brand new area! Sure, the Wi-Fi is nothing new, but now you can chat while you play, thanks to the new Wii Speak accessory. And one last thing: the music. This is a great soundtrack, especially for a game that doesn't focus on music. Let's face it -- some people just don't like the Animal Crossing series. But if you are an Animal Crossing fan, or even a newcomer to the series, I say give it a try. I give Animal Crossing: City Folk an 89/100. Collapse

  1. Animal Crossing: City Folk is one of the most charming and entertaining life sims out there, with lots to explore and experience.

    City Folk just seems like a huge missed opportunity - either that, or a lazy cash-in on Nintendo's newfound casual audience. If it's the former, they ought to just call it Wii Mortgage Payments.

    After putting literally weeks and months into playing both the GameCube original and the Nintendo DS sequel, it was very disappointing to see that, after putting nearly two weeks into Animal Crossing: City Folk that very little effort went into the design beyond porting and enhancing the Nintendo DS game.
