Nintendo Rebuilds Last Gen's Open-Ended Hit Without Any Evolution

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Concept: A return to the freeform, pastoral universe of Animal Crossing Graphics: The graphic detail, character models, and animations are decidedly old school, but this game is more about Nintendo's classic charm than tech specs Sound: The soundtrack is fairly forgettable. The WiiSpeak microphone (sold separately) allows live voice chat Playability: While it's more of an ''experience'' than a ''game,'' I don't see why activities like fishing or the basic menu design...

Animal Crossing: City Folk (Wii) - Review

VGChartz
6 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Most people play video games to get away from it all, unwind after a long day. Whether it be battling hordes of aliens on some barren world or saving princess’ from evil lizards, games or often used as a means to escape the real world. All of these different games have something in common; they try to place you in an exciting new local with all new things to do and things to see.

Animal Crossing: City Folk

Thunderbolt Games
11 July 2009
  • Excerpt: Leaving home for the first time and to pastures new; the chance to meet new people, experience new cultures and ways of life, work in unfamiliar territory and have a good time. Animal Crossing has been telling the tale of a lost and lonely bachelor, looking to rise from rags to riches, for quite some time now.

  • Conclusion: Already, I am looking forward to a sequel, but the real question is whether there will actually be one? As much as I want this game to sell well, I have a feeling its’ uniqueness will keep it out of enough hands. Even if this is not your type of game, it is critical that games such as these are still being developed. For the industry to keep growing and not become stale these chances must be taken.

Animal Crossing: City Folk review

Wii's World
21 February 2009

Life sim has homey charm, but similar to others in series.

Common Sense Media
17 February 2009
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this is a life simulation game in which you become a citizen of a small community of anthropomorphic animals. If your child is old enough to have played the original Animal Crossing on the GameCube, this game is not that different. But if they haven't played the game before, prepare for hours in front of the TV set while your children move around this new world full of funny animals.

Animal Crossing: City Folk Review

Cheat Code Central
12 February 2009
  • Conclusion: Animal Crossing: City Folk is one of the most charming and entertaining life sims out there, with lots to explore and experience. All in all, players probably won't complain much. It's true that this game is an expanded rehash of the DS version, but in this case, that's not a bad thing. Innovation could have been taken even further, but overall, players will be left with a great taste in their mouth thanks to everything this game has to offer.

Animal Crossing: City Folk

gamerlimit.com
12 February 2009
  • Excerpt: When the original Animal Crossing was released in America on the Gamecube in 2002 it had mixed impressions, sure it was regarded as a good game, but what the hell was it all about? A Boy or Girl living in a town full of Animals, working for a Raccoon and doing mixed odd jobs for the villagers, what was the point of it all? The point, was good clean fun. And Animal Crossing: City Folk is no different.

Animal Crossing: Let's Go to the City Review

VideoGamer.com
11 February 2009
  • Excerpt: After the quite brilliant Animal Crossing: Wild World on Nintendo DS, Nintendo fans have been waiting excitedly for the inevitable Wii follow-up. It's been three years since that game hit Japanese stores, so just what has Nintendo managed to conjure up in that time? Well, it's managed to come up with a terrible subtitle in 'Let's go to the City', completely innovate by offering voice chat and offer a new area to visit that sounds quite large but is in fact quite small.

Expert Review

Game Informer
15 January 2009
  • Summary: Animal Crossing gives players a ton of things to do from the moment they create their town and start paying off their first mortgage. Meeting new townspeople, planting foliage, removing weeds, and endlessly collecting the many fossils, bugs, fish, and furniture in the game will keep players busy for as long as they care to play. Unfortunately, none of these activities are any fun.
