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

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: City Folk

HDR
6 February 2009
  • Conclusion: Sure, my wife and her friend will spend a few nights playing together online for a while. However, once the novelty of Wii Speak wears off, there really is not any added incentive for them to continue. Will they stick around long enough to pay off the mortgage on their first home? No. Not a chance. I would bet Bells on that.
  • Pros: Wii Speak and online play, More items, Mii integration, DS integration is clever...
  • Cons: ...but it clears a path to retread the past, Where's the innovation?, No real use for motion controls, A lazy port of the GameCube and DS versions squished together

Animal Crossing: Let's Go to the City UK Review

IGN
4 December 2008
  • Conclusion: Ultimately, the trouble with Animal Crossing: Let's Go to the City isn't what's actually been delivered, it's what hasn't. There's so much potential in the franchise that it's disappointing when Nintendo doesn't seize the opportunity to expand on the series. Realistically though, disappointing doesn't make a bad game and, in truth, bar a few reservations, Let's Go to the City is just as good as the excellent handheld forebear it apes so closely.

  • Excerpt: Name: Animal Crossing: City Folk Genre: Simulation Platform: Nintendo Wii Check the Video Review. Now that Wii Music has plunked onto store shelves, Animal Crossing: City Folk is really all Nintendo has for the holiday 2008 lineup. Within moments of play it’s apparent that it isn’t a real leap forward from the previous versions.

Animal Crossing: City Folk

  • Excerpt: Animal Crossing has been a staple sim-like game for Nintendo. It first saw a release in Japan on the N64 in 2001 and the series was eventually brought to North American shores in late 2002 on the GameCube. Of course the Nintendo faithful was hooked from day one and Animal Crossing was a huge success. A follow up to the GameCube version was eventually released on the DS in late 2005 called Animal Crossing: Wild World.
