Marvel: Ultimate Alliance review (PS2)

HonestGamers
3 November 2006
  • Excerpt: wastes no time; there’s no cities to traverse, no prologue to wade through, no sappy love story to stomach. Things start off blazing and they stay that way right up until the final battle.

Animal Crossing

Thunderbolt Games
16 July 2005
  • Excerpt: Playing videogames is an anti-social hobby. I’m sure we’ve all lost girlfriends because of our ‘sad’ interests, grown cold to friends thanks to a hyped up release, and skipped days off work so to finally reach level 42 in order to use the supa-dupa laser cannon in online quests. First-person shooters and racing games usually hold our attention for a few months, whereas the real heavyweights, such as Final Fantasy, can take up to a year.

  • Summary: Cross over to a world that thrives 24-7 on GCN. The ambitious Animal Crossing allows players to interact with a virtual village of animals who are doing something different every minute of every day. With Animal Crossing's 24-hour clock, the game's unique events can be in synch with real time -- as day turns to night in the real world, the sun will also begin to set in the game. Seasons will change and special events will occur in real time, too.

Animal Crossing

Into Liquid Sky
11 October 2004
  • Excerpt: Animal Crossing is an interesting title that can be best described as a life simulation. You begin the game on a train, headed to a town to start life out on your own. After a conversation with a fellow passenger, you've gotten yourself set up with a home in the new town, which you get to name. Once you arrive, you meet Tom Nook, who owns four empty houses and the local general store.
  • Pros: Open-ended gameplay, Lots of things to do and earn, NES games!!!!, Uses GC to GBA connectivity and E-Reader
  • Cons: A keyboard would have helped the letter writing, N64 graphics, No major goal may turn off some gamers

  • Excerpt: First, lets discuss what the game is all about. Upon starting the game, the player is prompted to name their player, pick their gender, and then pick their town's name as well. A train ride with a highly annoying cat sets the stage. He just happens to know someone who can sell you a house in your new town.

  • Excerpt: Even though Animal Crossing has been criticised as being “childishâ€?, it is a great game, none the less. Many factors have spelled doom for AC, but a loyal Nintendo fan base, which is willing to try new types of games, has helped AC become a huge hit. According to reliable sources, AC has sold well over 150,000 games in the US alone. This hasn’t been confirmed or updated since October (2001), so I’m sure it is much greater than that by now.

Game Over Online
17 April 2003
  • Excerpt: Animal Crossing may not seem like the most action-packed or technically impressive game in the world, but give it a few days and it’ll surprise even the most hardcore twitch-gameplay fan. Running through fields of flowers attempting to catch a butterfly with a net isn’t just for little kids and weirdo nerds anymore.

Animal Crossing Gamecube Review

DarkZero
2 October 2004
  • Conclusion: While most people wont see anywhere near the lifespan this game offers, it really doesn’t hold back on the addictive gameplay. Get past the adorable façade and realise just how much there is to this game; if you can dedicate time to your town, trading and own a GBA, there is no reason you shouldn’t buy this game now. If you don’t, get it anyway; you’ll be sacrificing everything for it soon enough. Trust me; no console game will last you quite as long as this.
