In 2007 I got a wii and I have always wanted to play Animal crossing. I have it for the ds and I love it! So when I tried it I didn't have a memory card so I couldn't save. My cousin's birthday was a few days later we gave him Animal Crossing. We both fell in love with that game and the next day I bought the game and a memory card. I love this game and how the diary works that is so cool! I am still in my part time job but all my neighbors know me and we are all friends. When I bought the game it came with a memory card and when I played it i got a grab bag consisting of music, frinature, and 2 Nes systems and their games. I love this game and can't wait to go play it... how about now!

When I first read about Animal Crossing, I desperately wanted this game. I would always read about it and want it even more as new articles about it came out. Everyone I knew wanted this game and it was well worth the wait as I finally got it.
Graphics Although these are N64 graphics, I think they fit perfectly with this game. The way the trees look, or the houses, or even the animals just go perfect with this.
Sound The music in this game is great. You might think it gets repetitive after a while, but I don't. There's a different song every hour, and you can choose what song you want for your house you get from K.K. Slider. You can also compose a town song at the board in front of the post office. The sound effects are nice, nothing special. Never really bothered me.
Gameplay The gameplay is obviously the best part of this game. You can play all you want, pick it up when you want, even just play for short periods of time a day, and you'll still have lots of fun. The only problem is that some people don't actually like playing this "forever" and they might drop it for a while, but after a while, they have the urge to start playing again. You can do anything you want. You don't have to pay off your debt for your house, that is, unless you want a bigger house. You can fish, catch insects, dig for fossils, shop, get money, do errands for neighbors, talk to animals, and much much more. Plus, you can write letters. Sometimes, they don't really understand some words. (You can put cuss words into the letters to laugh when the animals show you the letter later on saying they loved it while you were just cussing them out) Of course, they might not like your letters. Sometimes you should send them gifts in the letters, and they might send you a gift back. (hint hint)
Replay Value As I said before, you can come back anytime to play this. This game never ends, and I mean never. There is no ending. And also, sometimes you might "find" NES games.
