Animal Crossing: Wild World is in my opinion one of the best games of 2005. Almost every thing in the creation of this game was done right. In terms of Gameplay, it is highly addictive and loads of fun. There is always something to do and get involved in. There is a long list of things to do in the game, from catching insects to writing letters to building lasting relationships with the local animal villagers. The character customization properties and nearly endless with a large choice of clothes and gear (hats, umbrellas, sunglasses, etc.) available to you. Creating your own designs and patterns is an excellent way to allow the player the express themselves. On the other hand, Nintendo didnt do an amazing job of making AC:WW all that much different from the one for Gamecube, but there are more than enough new features to provide a fresh experience. That in part is due to the online mode, which is very well done, and while there are some limitations on what you can do, there is a large sense of freedom when you explore other villages, and a large sense of accomplishment when showing off your sweet MTV Cribs worthy house. :)
On Graphics, they are very impressive. Bright, vibrant colors bring life to the game. There is great variety among the characters which keep the visuals always feeling fresh. Outdoors and indoors, everything looks great. Though, the game lacks in hi-res textures and the slight repetitiveness of the outside scenery.
The sound is just as lively and uplifting as in the Gamecube version of Animal Crossing. The effects are clear and accurate, and the music does a very good job of setting the mood. The DS's stereo speakers further increase the quality of the sound. And although the sound is incredibly varied, it can start to get slightly old after a couple months of play.
Animal Crossing: Wild World is an excellent value for your money. This is a game you come back to months and months from now. The hours upon hours of fun you will have will definitely make this game worth your money. With the sheer amount of things to do, you will never be bored. All this AND online mode too? It cant be true.....But it is.
Overall, Animal Crossing: Wild World is a one of kind experience you cant find anywhere else. I would recommend this game for players of the original Animal Crossing, and people who want to see what all the excitement is about. This is definitely a must buy for all DS owners, and a good reason to buy a DS if you haven't already.
