This is Luigi’sfan4ever with a 7th review.
One day you’re in a train, moving to a new town. A cat named Rover greets you and sits with you. He’ll ask you questions that you answer. After answering his last question, in which Rover finds out you didn’t choose a house before moving, he’ll call Tom Nook and ask him if there’s a house available for you to take. After that the train stops at the town you’re moving into. You get off and after leaving the train station, Tom Nook is waiting for you. He leads you to four houses that you can take. Once you pick one of the four houses, he’ll ask you to pay him 20,000 Bells but you have only 1000 Bells, which isn’t enough. Then he’ll say you can work off the rest at his store. What happens after that? Play the game to find out the rest.
You walk around town doing many things. At one point, while you’re working for Tom Nook, he will tell you to introduce yourself to your neighbors and the mayor of your town, Tortimer. You can also run errands for your neighbors, talk to them, or send letters to them with or without an item attached to the letter. Aside from those, you can fish, catch bugs, dig up stuff from the ground, or get fruit from trees by shaking them. Animals will occasionally move in and out of your town.
A nice feature is that the game utilizes a real time system. At night, the animals in your town go to sleep, but at different times and in the morning, the animals wake up, but once again, at different times. Tom’s store opens sometime in the morning and closes sometime in the night. Events in your town are also affected by time such as the Fishing Tourney which ends at 6:00 PM. And one last thing, you can also visit a friend’s town if their Memory Card is in Slot B and they have their Animal Crossing data in it.
They’re not bad but not great either.
The sound is pretty good. The sound of your footsteps depend on what you’re walking on. For
example, when you walk on steel, it sound’s like you’re walking on steel. A downside is that the
animals have wierd voices.
Very replayable. There’s always something to do everyday in Animal Crossing.
There’s hardly a challenge except for catching every bug and fish, getting every category in your museum filled, and aiming for a high score from the HRA.
The game is worth it. In fact, I got this game for $20! Get this game if you’re interested.
This game is great!
