  • Summary: In this sequel to the wildly popular Nintendo GameCube game, players and up to three friends can hang out in the same village and interact in real time - either through wireless LAN or over Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Now players can visit a friend's village from thousands of miles away.In this sequel to the wildly popular Nintendo GameCube game, players and up to three friends can hang out in the same village and interact in real time - either through wireless LAN or over Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.

    The touch screen makes item management and world navigation a breeze. Typing letters and designing patterns are now just stylus strokes away. Days and seasons pass in real time, so whether players want to decorate their homes, catch bugs or fish, collect brand-new items like hats and sunglasses or just chat with the wild and wacky characters in their villages, there's always something to do.

Animal Crossing DS Official Movie 1
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 55 out of 57
  2. Negative: 0 out of 57
  1. The online multiplayer provides for limitless possibilities for handheld gaming, allowing its participants to access a miniature world where individual style and interactivity reign supreme.
  2. With no big battles, mesmerizing graphics, or frustrating challenges, Animal Crossing plummets the player into a new, relaxed world, where your only concerns are to meet the animals, find all species of fish and bugs, excavate ancient fossils, and of course, pay your seemingly endless mortgage to Tom Nook.
  3. 90
    Whether you are a fan of the previous titles or not, the wonderfully incorporated real-time system combined with the villager’s emotional-pull creates a world that has the potential to alter your sleep patterns and actually intertwine and weave its presence into your daily lives.
  4. A game that will last forever. Regardless of whether you have human friends or are just playing the game alone, it will likely last you a long, long time.
  5. 85
    It just seemed to me that for every good addition to the DS game, they left out a good thing or failed to fix a problem that was evident in the first.
  6. 80
    While none of these issues hold the game back from a playability standpoint, Wild World is closer to an enhanced port than an extravagant sequel.
  7. It may sound mundane, but there are enough winning touches to make the game very playable in short bursts.

    It's a very good game, but it doesn't have a lot of action.

    It's a fine port of the original, and I highly recommend it to anybody who didn't enjoy it then. But those who did will probably It's a fine port of the original, and I highly recommend it to anybody who didn't enjoy it then. But those who did will probably feel that it's all been done before. There aren't any drastic changes, just little tweaks that make it feel more like an expansion than a true sequel. Hopefully the Wii AC will be more fresh. Expand
