One of the best games that happened to the Wii Animal Crossing City Folk is an all out awesome game that you should not just rent but go out and buy right after your done reading this review!!! With fantastic colors and the best game play. For everyone who has played the other two versions you will enjoy this one the most because there is a lot more things to do with the new city function. There are a lot more animals to talk to in your town and you get your own house!!!(in the DS version you had to share your house with whoever joined the game) Also the Wi-Fi function is the same except they added the wii speak which is really cool. All in all I just can't write enough to even begin describing this excellent game. So just do yourself a favor and buy the game NOW!!!!!

So, basically if you take Animal Crossing GC and Animal Crossing DS, and put them out to pasture to mate, you'd get Animal Crossing: City Folk.
There is really nothing new here except being able to take a bus from your town to the city, which has just a few more stores for you to buy stuff. There's a lot of things to collect, but beyond that there's not much of interest. We've seen all of this before.
I loved the GC and DS games, but this version is lackluster and disappointing.
Online play is frustrating, as you need yet another friend code, and it's impossible to find anyone to trade codes with unless you find an internet forum to trade codes. And that is very risky because they can come in and ruin your town.
Nintendo needs to think long and hard about the next evolution of Animal Crossing before releasing another game. The only thing they added was a few more stores in the city. Very lame. Also, a game like this really needs some kind of online community, but Nintendo is very stubborn and won't go that direction (yet).
