Game Description:

Animal Crossing City Folk is the newest Animal Crossing game this time landing on the Nintendo Wii. If you are new to the Animal Crossing Universe, the game is quite simple; arrive in town and make a life for yourself. You can do favors for other townspeople, you can go fishing or collect shells, you can work for Tom Nook, you can buy items for your house and then decorate your house, you can dig up fossils and then take them to the museum or you can do a number of other activities.

The thing about Animal Crossing that makes it stand out is that everything happens in real time. If it is Tuesday December 9th 11:00am in real life then it is Tuesday December 9th 11:00am in Animal Crossing. Also, what makes this version of Animal Crossing standout from past Animal Crossing games is that you can visit other people’s towns if you have an internet connection. Animal Crossing is also the first Wii game to introduce Wii Speak which allows you to speak to other people through a microphone.

What Parents Need to Know

There is a town square that you can visit and one of the shops in town is a fortune teller who can tell you your fortune or sell you a charm.

A Child’s Perspective: Justin age 11 says Animal Crossing is very fun and likes how it gives a child’s point of view on what it is like to have more responsibility.

Reviewer's Thoughts
Animal Crossing is a very simple game, but also a game that one can easily waste a lot of time in. Both my 10 year old and 11 year old really enjoy Animal Crossing a lot. Personally, I have some concerns about the fortune teller in town, but it can also be easily avoided. If you are looking for a fun family game for the Wii, then you may want to check Animal Crossing City Folk out.
