In a nutshell:
Start a new life on your DS with the most unlikely source of online addiction you’ve ever experienced. You’ve complete freedom to customise your home and the town around it as you socialise with the locals and your friends alike.
The world of Animal Crossing seems a peculiarly simple one at first: there are no levels to be beaten or bad guys to overcome, just a cheerful little village to maintain, as you water flowers, catch fish and dig for fossils. But before you know it the game has its hooks in you, as you meet friends via the Wi-Fi Network Connection to chat and compete or start playing the turnip stock market. With over 600 different pieces of furniture to collect the game has a near infinite lifetime and by running in real-time with special events all through the year you’ll find yourself checking in daily with what’s going on around town.
Most exciting moment:
Winning a fishing competition against three friends and rubbing their noses in it via the online chat.
Since you ask:
The first Animal Crossing game was actually released on the N64 in Japan – the GameCube version was a slightly enhanced version of this.
The bottom line:
Live the life idyllic on your DS with the best use of the Wi-Fi Network Connection yet.

One of the best things about it is the connection option. You can connect with friends and play in the same town as them, play hide and seek or just wander about exploring together. Up to three people can come to your town, although if your 'gate' is open anyone can come in, even if you don't know them. Luckily, if people are in your town you can make them all go very easily.
There's always something new to do in Animal Crossing. Whether it's a fishing tourney, or a flea market (when you can buy furniture from other people - no, animals' houses and they can buy it from yours) or La-di day, when everone sings and tries to make new town tunes, you can never get bored.
Here's why you might enjoy AC if you're an older gamer:
1) DO A JOB YOU REALLY ENJOY: After a long and boring day at work, it's great to immerse yourself in a completely different world where work is actually pleasurable. You get to choose exactly how you want to live in AC, so if you want to go fruit picking one day, fishing the next, bribing gifts from the locals, digging up fossils, catching bugs or just lounge in the sun getting a tan ... it's your world and you can live it how you want to.
2) NO HASSLE TO PAY YOUR MORTGAGE: Take as long as you like to pay your mortgage or never pay it at all. There's no threatening letters or debt collectors at your door. You simply can't upgrade your house until you pay it off - so if you're happy in a 1 bedroom house, just don't bother to pay it!
3) EVERY DAY IS A SURPRISE: you just never know what you're going to get in AC. There's a ton of surprise visitors to keep you entertained, special days and events to keep you amused, new items to collect (keep your eyes open and look everywhere from the ground up to the sky) and neighbours who move in - and move out!
4) YOU CAN CHOOSE YOUR NEIGHBOURS: well pretty much! Don't like a neighbour, too grumpy, too demanding, too irritatingly happy? Just stop speaking to them, that's it, totally ignore them and pretty soon they'll be gone - bet you wish that could happen in real life! Love your neighbours?Read more ›
Not much has changed since the original Animal Crossing, but considering the enormous leap down in machine power from the GameCube to DS, this isn't bad at all. There's more furniture, and clothing for you to play with including hats, glasses, and fun items like the slingshot.
The game has abandoned the top down view which I had becom so accustomed to, but whether this is a good or bad thing is up to you. It allows you to see the sky, which changes regularly and includes any constellations you draw. It also allows you to see more of the screen, and has ditched the acre system. the camera keeps you steadily in the middle, and doesn't jump around like in the GameCube's Animal Crossing.
Alot of the old games buildings are gone too. The post office has merged with the dump, the museum has a cafe in the basement and a telescope on it's roof, and the police station is just gone. I guess the game creators realized that in a town where the worst crimes were liotering and hitting your fellow villagers with nets, police officers were unnecisarry.
The amount of things that villagers can do has increased as well. They still ask you to run errands for them, or give Rocco back his hankerchief, but now they will also make nicknames for you, throw paries at their house, or come over to your house to hang out.Read more ›
