Animal Crossing: Wild World is a fun little game for playing when you don't have much else to do.

User Rating: 9.5 | Animal Crossing: Wild World DS
Animal Crossing: Wild World may not bring anything much new to the stage in terms of the series, but it definitely is a benefit that you can now take it on the go, especially since it's the kind of game you play when you don't have anything else to do. While it doesn't have any set objectives or level-up type events, that certainly doesn't mean there is nothing to do. Gathering bells, the in-game form of money, is always an option, which can then be used to expand your house, buy furniture for your house, buy clothing for your character, or donate to another town in need. (Apparently they're so poor they eat dirt.) You can run errands for your lazy neighbors, buy coffee at the local café, and add to the collection of the town museum. However, after some time, this sort of day-to-day routine becomes tedious, leading many to leave the game unattended for some time. If you should do this and return at a later date, the fact that your town is now overrun by weeds, your house is full of cockroaches, and none of your neighbors remember you can be enough to make you want to bury the game right back where you left it. Luckily, for some, the promise of the really cool furniture piece that going to be in the store the very next day I'm sure of it is enough to tempt them into coming back day after day. Overall, while Animal Crossing: Wild World is nothing amazingly new and can become tedious after some time, it's a good game to play when you don't have much else to do, and a solid virtual-life game to have in your collection.
