Customer Review of the Week: Animal Crossing


To describe Animal Crossing and make it sound like a fun game is difficult. It's one of those titles you really have to play to decide on whether you'll like it. It is in a word. Addicting.

Think of Harvest Moon meets The Sims, and you'll have a vague idea of what Animal Crossing is like. You start off with your town, a largish area which has rivers, trees, flowers, beaches and a handful of houses, beyond that is the city area which houses the shops. And what do you do with this town? Kill the inhabitants? Go on a quest to find a Princess? Nope, instead you fish, catch bugs and buy and sell things for money.

Sounds boring you say? The charm from Animal Crossing comes from being able to just pick up the console and relax, while you can complete all of your tasks in a day you'll find yourself drawn in for longer periods of time, you'll be wanting to catch more fish and bugs so you can get that next house, or even just to improve your town in general, or maybe just want to fill up the Museum some more.

Each of the animals in the game (there are over 300) have their unique personality and really make the town come alive, they'll stop for chats, give you items and even ask for your help in changing how they talk, however some will be an annoyance from the start, as they plonk their houses down above your fruit trees or give you funny looks as they walk past. It's all part of the fun in the game.

Short but sweet, totally agree though, it's hard to describe and it doesn't sound like fun, but it is. Couldn't get in to it on the Gamecube, but on a handheld it's perfect, just pick it up and watch your time disappear.

I agree, when you look at it on paper you don't think you will like it but the game is great. Well done

I hate to be that guy and complain since you were nice to put this up.... but this is only half of the review :/ I could understand removing the Tom Nook is Microsoft thing but all of the rest? XD I'm sure it was just a mistake. Still stoked it's up there tho

That's the price you pay for trying to tarnish Mr Nook's reputation by comparing him to Microsoft

Nook is Microsoft and his hell spawn are EA and Activision. You know it to be true. Which makes Redd.....errr....Sony?

I need more coconuts, I kinda went crazy and started cutting down the trees on the island while I was playing with Gloria. Really hard to get beetles now

Not bad, I made well over 300k yesterday, enough to pay for my police station, and knock 50k off my home loan, and still had about 50k left over to pay for my sandpit this morning.

I made a booboo. I deleted my Animal Crossing save cos the time was stuck an hour fast and it was annoying me but then after I made a new save I find out that you can change the in-game time. (Crying)
