this one really kind of dissapoints me. I am a day or so in and it feels like I am starting the original over- except I am forced to keep my data on the wii and not an sd card. I can see there are so many other thigns to do later, but as i have to rebuild the entire town from scratch i dont feel like it. I even seem to be collecting the same basic things.


What they really need to do is change up the intro a bit so that it doesn't feel like a rehash for the first few days. Think of mario games. The first level almost always starts with a goomba, a power-up, a coin block, and some bricks. Still, the first levels from the various mario games feel very different.The fact that characters even seem to be rehashing the same speechs kinda bores me.

LoL, you need at least 3 months to see the depth of this one compared the the Ds version

but the thing is that they could make sooooo many obvious improvements, like putting things outside instead of leaves for example

I don't know why people think that these sales are bad. In Japan I am 100% sure that ACCF will sell at least 2 million there. In Japan Animal Crossing and Pikmin are the 2 that I see from Nintendo that have the best legs in Japan. AC and Pikmin are not about 1st week sales over in Japan.

I was waiting for this game to be released. I was hoping to put patterns on furniture to make my own wallpaper. A lot more items, more interactions with villagers. More fish, bugs and possibly something new like that. A bigger town and house.

And all we got was a crappy city that has nothing exciting in it. Nothing changed since the last game. And Animal Crossing should be portable so that you can bring your town with you.

Oh well...

the wrong thing is that most people (11m) already have it on Ds and since they are very similar, they find no reason to buy it

i'm sure the next Animal Crossing will be both for Wii and Ds and will have more changes

@Hunter

If you haven't played Wild World for very long, then I would definitely recommend the game. I'm more of a console gamer anyways, so playing a game on the television is usually preferred.

But yeah, buy it and get lost in the world of Animal Crossing. It's definitely one of the better worlds to get lost in.

Love the game. It would have been nice if there was more but I have a feeling that with a bunch of DLC for free then it will be all good. Check out the AC thread for trades, fcs (list of towns and names of people so it is easier to know who is who) and more.

i agree its the most polished ac game to date, i love animal crossing but ... i wish they had added more, animal crossing could be expanded to be so much deeper and have so much MORE detail/customization...

most people i know who bash this version typically just want more from the series as they feel this version is just rehashed from prior versions they played, while i can see the new content, i left feeling it wasn't much of an addition either :x

pap64 posted 03/01/2009, 06:11
Definitely the most polished game in the series. It takes the best elements of both games, adds in expanded online and social interaction and its truly the best in the entire series.

This game gets me thinking a lot about reviewers. They complain about City Folk not being new enough. Yet, they praise every other sequel.

ALL direct sequels are really just expansions of existing formulas. GTAIV was an HD expansion of GTA III and its sequels. Gears of War 2 mainly expands the story while the gameplay remains the same. RE5 looks to play exactly like RE4 but with a new lead character, setting and new storyline.

The expansion lies within the polished online interactions. Wii Speak and text chat add a lot to the game. Being able to circle through your inventory without using the screen is a godsend. Even the city proves to be useful.

So City Folk is really an expansion of WW that adds new elements and fixes many of them to make it the best version yet. So why does the game get crapped upon for doing something that is COMMON in the videogame world? Is it because it doesn't have a story and is thus pure gameplay?

TheConduit posted 02/01/2009, 04:14
Tried and true formula.
The critics I believe were to harsh on this game for being what animal crossing is. It sold so well before because the formula they use is so close to perfect.

i hate how all the reviews have to compair to the older versions! personally, wi-fi is what makes the game so i did not like the GCN version at all. Then the DS version came out, it was (is)amazing! now the WII has its turn with AC and it is great even though it feels like the same thing.
The ds and wii both has it's ups , but in the end the wii version wins by just a tad. DS is portable but wii has bigger town and 60Fps.. I love the rolling log effect so im glad to see it return.
