    'City Folk' is as addictive as you'd expect an Animal Crossing game to be, but about as shallow as its predecessors.

    Machi e Ikouyo: Doubutsu no Mori

    'City Folk' is as addictive as you'd expect an Animal Crossing game to be, but about as shallow as its predecessors.

    Animal Crossing: City Folk, the follow-up to 2005's "Wild World" for the Nintendo DS, serves as the kind of game everyone loves to play, to the point where you forget to return to reality. But that is less than unexpect... Read Full Review
