Animal Crossing: Wild World (DS) ... Nintendo / Players move into a living, breathing world inside the Nintendo DS...and then invite their friends to visit from anywhere on earth. In this sequel to the wildly popular Nintendo GameCube game, players and up to three friends can hang out in the same village and interact in real time either through wireless LAN or over Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Now players can visit a friend's village from thousands of miles away. The touch screen makes item management and world navigation a breeze. Typing letters and designing patterns are now just stylus strokes away. Days and seasons pass in real time, so whether players want to decorate their homes, catch bugs or fish, collect brand-new items like hats and sunglasses or just chat with the wild and wacky characters in their villages, there's always something to do.

Animal Crossing could only have come out of Japan, but like many ideas that have come from that very special area of the world, it has been wholeheartedly embraced by the western market. It is not so much a game, as an experience, a second life. In theory I don't think it should work, essentially you are creating a rod for your own back when you play a game like this, much like the Pokemon 'Gotta catch 'em all' premise, Wild world is about filling up spaces on a list, when you boil it down to its bare bones, and like Pokemon, the game itself kind of comes second to this endeavour. The premise is simple, you are a boy or a girl who is fresh out into ... Read the complete review

Animal Crossing Wild World is definatly the best game I have found for the DS so far. The premise is simple, your character (named and styled by you) it is explained is moving to a new town (again named by you). In this town are various animal characters that chat to you, give you little delivery jobs, competitions ("eg Lets see who can catch the first Goldfish") and even write you letters that arrive in your letter box every day. There are no goals in animal crossing, other than to pay off the mortgages you are give by Tom Nook (the local shopowner and racoon) which you can do by earning on delivery jobs and selling fruits from the trees of the ...

We had decided to buy my daughter a Nintendo Ds for Christmas last year, and one of the games that she had almost begged for was Animal Crossing. I have watched her friends play this in the past and never really understood what it was all about as they told me there weren't really things to do, and you kind of did what you wanted! This in mind when we bought the machine and game a few weeks before Christmas, there was no option but for me to play it in secret without her catching me! The game itself is suitable for anybody aged six and over, and I would suggest no younger than this because of the depth of the game. Currently priced at £24.99, it's an ... Read the complete review

Animal Crossing Wild World is a very unusual "game", indeed it is more of a fantasy world that you can dip in and out of when real life leaves you wanting a break! Imagine a fantasy world populated by (somewhat) intelligent talking animals, each with their own likes and dislikes, and personalities. Imagine a world where you wake up each day and your biggest problem is deciding whether to go "bug catching" with a big butterfly net, or digging for fossils to donate to the town museum (run by my favourite characher, Blathers the owl!) Got that? Then you are imagining Animal Crossing! The game is set in real time, and this for me ... Read the complete review

My son (7) and I love this game. Right from the beginning when you can name your own town and start work for a very jolly Racoon called Tom Nook as a delivery boy doing some advertising and getting to meet and greet the town locals. Tom Nook lets you go eventually and then the game really gets underway. Whatever you choose to do like gardening, eating some fruit, lazy fishing, visiting the museum, chating to the neighbours and friends or just decorate your home - it is a brilliant game. One of the best features is that the game is set in "real time" so there are special festivals (like harvest and flowers) and fishing competitions. You can also use wi-fi .. Read the complete review
