Animal Crossing: Wild World - Review

One of the very best Nintendo DS tiltles out there,
still going strong with hundreds of thousands of users
still sharing furniture, bells, and stories....

A truly WiFi World experience....


Animal Crossing: Wild World



Introduction:

Animal Crossing Wild World a sequel to the Animal Crossing
for Game Cube. It is a great game with a summary to fit it.
Animal Crossing Wild World starts out with you in a Taxi
getting ready to arrive in the town name of your choosing.
The game begins when you get dropped at the town hall
to register your stay with the Secretary to the mayor.
You then go to your new home to check things out,
it may look small now but just wait!
As you are leaving a Raccoon named Tom Nook
come and asks you to work part time for him to pay
off a little of your home lone and you happily accept!

Your journey has begun......





AC:WW is packed with many amazing features, sure to provide endless entertainment for all. It uses the DS'S internal clock system, which changes the game in a variety of ways. For example, day and night, Summer and Winter. It's just like an ordinary year. It's also compatible with Nitendo WiFi connection, which makes the game that much more worthwhile. Over WiFi, you can visit friends towns, meet the neighbors, go to parties, have competetions, you name it. Or if you desire, you can even host your own games. Some websites use forums to plan parties or trades. Marvman personally thinks this is excellent! It allows you to get the most from the game!




Everytime you pay a certain number of bells to Tom Nook (your rent) your house and his Shop will be upgraded. It starts out as Nook N Cranny, Then Nook-N-Go, Then Nookway and the Final and Largest (which also includes a hair shop) Nookingtons.



Your Town Also includes a Museum. You Fill this up with Insects,Fish,paintings,and Fossils. On certain days and holidays, Festivities occur. Like in August on Weekends, Fireworks occur. You can also get items from the town hall like party poppers.

The Seasons change Yearly as well. With That comes the change of the looks of the trees. It Snows and Even Rains in this game.



This game does Include Nintendo Wifi Connection. In this mode, You may visit other peoples towns or host at your own town. This of course uses the Friend Code Policy. They also have Ds to Ds mode. Where if you have a nearby friend with a Ds you can do this mode.





Graphics


It's not fair for us to expect any dazzling graphics from this game. Unfortunately the Nintendo DS i unable to provide us with that. However, the graphics aren't as bad as you would think. They appear to be quite cute and cartoony, which makes this game less real, but it makes the game more enjoyable for the younger audiences. Some aspects of the game however look a little 2D, but most items are 3D. Overall, the graphics are satisfactory.

General Concept


AC:WW doesn't really have any objectives. Basically, it's a game you can never complete. This doesn't mean you should stomp your foot and go "There isn't anything to do!" Oh no, there is still plenty of things to do. If there were any objectives, number one would be look after your town. It's always pleasing to compare the condition of your town over WiFi (Boasting Opportunity Here!) The second one would be to have a large circle of friends. You can have a maximum of 8 villagers inhabiting your town, so there is an opportunity to have 8 friends within your town. (How lonely!) Or there's freinds over WiFi, which you can have 40 of! The third would be to improve your household. Having a good house doesn't in paticluar provide anymore fun than anything else in the town, but you can show this off to your friends too. AC:WW is perfect for boasting about! The fourth objective I can think of would be to fill your catalog. This way you can now get every item in the game. (A little sense of completion)












Graphics: 7.7/10
The Graphics to this game are nothing special but will wow you
as you travel through the town viewing the many animals that live
with you in your town. There are many things that made ACWW
special and like none other, the graphics are one of them.


Storyline: NA/10
AC:WW doesn't really have any objectives or storyline.
Basically, it's a game you can never complete.
This doesn't mean you should stomp your foot and go
"There isn't anything to do!"
Oh no, there is still plenty of things to do.
If there were any objectives, number one would be look after your town.
It's always pleasing to compare the condition of your town
over WiFi (Boasting Opportunity Here!)

Game Play/Controls: 9.0/10
The game play of Animal Crossing Wild World is pretty great
you run around town fishing bug catching and playing with other people.
Animal Crossing Wild World is a 2-4 Wi-Fi and Local player game
so you can play with your friends over Wi-Fi around the world
and play with your friend spending the night.
The bad thing is if you have no one to play with locally
or no Wi-Fi you may get a little uninterested.

Replay Value/Wifi: 9.2/10
The replay value for a Wi-Fi game is always high so
this one probably is right?
The replay is okay for no multiplayer because of the animals
that live in your town and the constant rate of your pockets
exploding with cash! The constant store item changing is helpful
in the replay because you’re going to want to buy all the best
Freakn A items out there for your house.


Music/Sound: 9.0/10
The sound for this game is rockn!
Every different place in this game has its own unique music
and you even get to create your own town tune.
The sound is at an even higher level with the ability to
obtain K.K. Slider music buy requesting and listening
to him sing at the Museums Coffee shop.
There are also amazing fireworks at the time of holidays
like New Years Eve and the Fourth of July.


Overall Rating: 8.7/10
Following the worldwide success of the
GCN version of the series,
this followup for the DS does not dissapoint.
It provides additional features the GCN didn't have,
and makes the best use out of the DS various features
and functions.
Its an Incredibly fun game if you have wifi if you hang out
with your friends and throw party's and such, but be warned this game
is seriously dangerous do to the evil hackings of people by creating seeds.


Animal Crossing: Wild World, it certainly is a fitting name.


Rockn.
