  Game: Animal Crossing
Updated 26 October 2004, 18.30
Game: Animal Crossing
Genre: Sim

Format: GameCube

The Plot: Your character has just moved to a small village where everyone is a cute animal.

You spend your days wandering around the village looking for ways to make money so you can pay for your house.

Playability: You wouldn't think that playing through a simple village life could be so addictive.

And if you do you get bored, you can connect your GameCube to another and visit your friend's village!

Fun: There really are so many little things to do in this game you'll be occupied for hours!

Graphics: The graphics aren't the best in the world by a long way, but they are very cute and suit the game well.

Difficulty: It's not really a difficult game, but that doesn't mean it gets boring.

Hit or Miss: Hit! This is really fun - even though it is just about living your life in a small village, it's still great!

NR rating:

What did YOU think of Animal Crossing?

This is so addictive! You wouldn't think catching a fish or posting a letter would be fun...BUT IT IS! Before I got this I wouldn't get up early for anything. Now I'm playing it before school just to go mushrooming!

I love meeting all the new people in the town. They are always so nice! I also like being able to upgrade your house to a bigger house. The best part is there is always something new in the town store

I think animal crossing was great!!! It's really good!! I thought the characters were sooo cute. Now that I have got it I never want to stop playing it. I think it's not very hard so it would even be good for young girls and boys. I think it's even better with more people.

I liked this game, but I prefer Harvest Moon. 3 and a half out of five.

I only got Animal Crossing yesterday. And I'm already addicted.

Brilliant a must buy for GameCube owners, If you liked Harvest Moon you'll love this

I've had this game for nearly 6 months because it was an import. But I'm very happy that European gamers have the chance to have this masterpiece of all games! I give it a 9-10.

I think it's a wicked game even though it sounds boring about moving into a town etc - I would say get it now.

I first saw this game in a magazine and thought it was childish but after hearing all these good things about it I trusted the word on the street and bought it and now I'm hooked. I have to play for at least an hour a day and I wait longingly for the right day so I can meet the new visitor. Looks childish and easy but is addictive and has bundles of depths. 10/10 easily. I'll be playing this into next year and already want the second!!!

The game is really great and like nearly everyone said it's wow - a very big wow. It was absolutely fabulous.
Vicky, 14, Nottingham

The game is... wow. You can visit friends. make money. send letters... It's soo cute and it grows on you.

I like it because everything is in a beautiful imaginary world, instead of real life. Thumbs up !
Emma, 13, Woking

It's really fun and all the animals are really sweet. It's a game for all ages and it kind of grows on you. I let my brother on it and he wouldn't get off!
Natalie, 12, Hampshire

I really like this game! The first time I saw it I thought 'Big deal' but I ended up renting it and loved it! It really is addictive. I never thought it could be so much fun! It's worth the money in my opinion!

It's excellent I played it over and over again. A thumbs up!!!

I agree with your report but it can get a little bit boring after a while. With friends it's much more enjoyable, especially playing with three or more players. Sometimes it freezes a lot.
Merlin, 11, Glastonbury

I think it's the worst game ever. From the start the music was bad, the graphics were rubbish. I want better games on gamecube. Or else I'll sell it on eBay and get a PS2.
James, 13, London

Animal Crossing is brilliant and you know it! 5 STARS DEFINITELY.
Chris, 13, Aberdeen

I love Animal Crossing!! It's so fun!! I've already paid off my loan and now I am expanding my house!!
