If you were given the keys to your own community, what would you do? Go fishing, collect shells or watch fireworks with friends? Build a snowman, exchange presents with family or decorate your house for the holidays? Take a trip to the city, go on a shopping spree or visit friends from all over the globe? In Animal Crossing: City Folk, life moves at a relaxed pace, but the world brims with endless possibilities.
You make the whole story, as you and up to three other players move into a town and just live life. Befriend your animal neighbors, decorate your house with cool furnishings, fill up your wardrobe, get to know the local wildlife, hop on a bus to visit the new city and just explore the world. There are a million different ways to play. Every charming animal character has a personality: some are grouches while others are chatterboxes. And there's no final goal or high score to hit. The game keeps going for as long as you want to play, and your town will always be there when you return. Move into town, buy a house and then do whatever you want. Time and seasons pass as they do in the real world, so there's always something different happening. Collect more than 2,400 items, go fishing for rare and interesting fish, catch all kind of cool bugs, dig up dinosaur fossils and buried treasure, hang out with other players or spend the day in the city. There's so much to do, and you have all the time in the world to explore it all. DS Suitcase Mode
The DS Suitcase lets you carry your character from your Wii console to a friend's, thus giving people without an Internet connection the ability to experience multiplayer modes. Additionally, you can move your character from Animal Crossing: Wild World on Nintendo DS and play as him/her in Animal Crossing: City Folk. Key Game Features
- There's Always Something New To Do: In the living, breathing world of Animal Crossing: City Folk, days and seasons pass in real time, so there's always something to discover. Catch fireflies in the summer, go trick-or-treating on Halloween or hunt for eggs on Bunny Day. If you're in the mood for something a little faster paced, take a bus to a new urban city area that's unique to Animal Crossing: City Folk. There you can catch a show at the theater or check out the sales at Gracie's boutique. But if you don't show your face back home for too long, your neighbors will miss you.
- Play With and Hear Up to Four Friends: Up to four people from your household can live and work together to build the perfect town. Design clothes and patterns, write letters and post messages on the bulletin board for each other, or play online using your broadband connection and invite up to three friends to visit your town using Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. With the new optional Wii Speak microphone (sold separately), it's like you're all in the same room. The microphone sits atop the sensor bar and picks up the conversation of everyone in the room to encourage a more inclusive experience.
- Get to Know Your Neighbors: The heart of Animal Crossing: City Folk is building relationships with the animals in your town as well as with other players. Befriend your animal neighbors by exchanging letters, gifts and favors. Animals can also move from town to town, bringing their memories and stories from their old towns with them. And since animals are notoriously loose-lipped, they spill all the juicy details.
- Express Your Personal Style: Customize your town, your house and yourself by collecting bugs, fish, fossils, art, furniture, clothes and accessories. You can also go to the salon in the city to change your hairstyle and get a Mii makeover. Plus, if you design clothes in the tailor's shop, animals will wear them and maybe even bring them to other towns.
Familiar faces such as K.K. Slider, Tom Nook, Blathers and Mr. Resetti all appear, as well as a bunch of new characters like Festivale host Pavé and Bug-Off judge Bud. Many characters who occasionally visited your town in previous Animal Crossing games have now set up permanent shop in the city, so you can see them anytime. Special Powers, Weapons, Moves & Features:
Use the Wii Remote pointer to type letters, use items, draw designs for clothing or wallpaper, drag clothing or items onto your characters, interact with animals or objects, or lead your character around the world. Use Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection to hang out in real time with up to three of your friends. You can also send them e-mails and text messages from the game. Play at different times of the year to experience different activities, holidays and seasons. And when visiting a friend in another country, experience the holidays native to their culture. Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection
Up to four people can play together in real time via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. The host opens his or her gate to allow friends into the town, where they can perform all sorts of activities: fish, write letters to townsfolk, shop at the store, swap items, play hide-and-seek ... anything. Up to four players can interact in real-time, communicating via text chat, mic chat and emoticons. WiiConnect24:
Using WiiConnect24, you can buy and sell items to friends by participating in silent auctions, view actual players' homes in the Happy Room Academy office or send letters to other players' towns.

the things they mail you are random sometimes different fruit that if you plant in your town you can sell for alot more money than the native fruit and if they send clothes or furniture you can sell it for a profit so basically you send them worthless fruit and you get good stuff in return maybe even stuff you want to keep
At first, I didn't think too much about it because I'm more of a Harvest Moon/The Sims kind of gal, but I wanted to give this game a try after reading all the rave reviews. It took me a while to get used to the blocky, cartoony style, but after several hours, days, weeks and months of playing, it really grows on you.
This was actually my first Animal Crossing game to play because I don't own any other console, but I'd like to think it works really well with the Wii! The game itself is absolutely simple. Well, sort of. You obviously have certain goals to complete like paying off your mortgage to Tom (Crook) Nook and making enough money to unlock other rewards and actually be able to buy the nicer things sold in the game. For me personally, it didn't take long to pay off the mortgage and get all the renovations out of the way. Then again, playing obsessively can help with that.
You catch fish. Chase after bugs. Hunt down fossils. Chat up the neighbors and give them funny slogans. Dress up your avatar. Furnish your house, etc etc etc. It's amazing how easily you get sucked into this game despite the extremely limited amount of things at your disposal. Because let's face it, after a while, anything can get redundant and boring. But I've had this game for a few months now and I'm still playing it every day.
I don't think I even mentioned the best part and this involves my Dad because he does not play video games and he thought it was super silly when he watched me play, but he still stuck around to watch no matter how many jokes he made about it. Lo and behold, he has now become more addicted to the game than me so that's telling you something.
I do have a couple of things to nitpick about the game though. One being that while I enjoy giving funny catchphrases and greetings to the townies who ask, it gets really really REALLY annoying to the point where I ignore them 90% of the time when they want to talk (sorry folks). The most important thing I can possibly nag about is the fact that the more you walk/run/hustle about your town, the GRASS WILL WEAR DOWN and you're left with patches of dirt/sand all over and it doesn't grow back. I haven't hit the winter stage just yet considering it's still summer, but apparently the lack of grass equals no snow which then equals no snowballs to make your snowman. It's a huge bummer. You can be as careful as you want, but if you keep running around the same pattern, your grass will hate you regardless.
ALL IN ALL. It's a wonderful game and I highly recommend it to everyone and anyone!
