Review Animal Crossing: Wild World (Wii U eShop / DS)
Why this world?
The very idea of a portable version of Animal Crossing filled this reviewer with glee when he first read about it back in the days of magazines and routers without wi-fi as standard. Animal Crossing: Wild World has always been a very special game to fans as it expanded upon the original GameCube title (for this region at least) but...
Review Animal Crossing: Wild World (DS)
It's so cute!
To tell you the truth, I don't feel like Animal Crossing: Wild World is a video game. To me, it's more of a hangout. It's a fantasy world you can go to, to escape from reality…especially if you enjoy collecting furniture and planting pear trees. Wild World takes you away from your dull and boring life, to an alternate world full of...

Is New Horizons the latest AND greatest?
When it launched back in March 2020, it seemed like half the planet was playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Nintendo's serene life sim series has a habit of becoming a part of your daily routine like doing your teeth or walking the dog. Consequently, it etches itself into your brain; reme
About The Game
Players move into a living, breathing world inside the Nintendo DS... and then invite their friends to visit from anywhere on earth.
- In this sequel to the wildly popular Nintendo GameCube game, players and up to three friends can hang out in the same village and interact in real time - either through wireless LAN or over Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Now players can visit a friend's village from thousands of miles away.
- The touch screen makes item management and world navigation a breeze. Typing letters and designing patterns are now just stylus strokes away.
- Days and seasons pass in real time, so whether players want to decorate their homes, catch bugs or fish, collect brand-new items like hats and sunglasses or just chat with the wild and wacky characters in their villages, there's always something to do.
Players make their own stories. A player and up to three friends move into a village and just live life, extend a home, interact with their neighbors and explore the village.
Much of the cast of the original Animal Crossing returns, including animals of all shapes and personality types: K.K. Slider, Tom Nook, Blathers, Mr. Resetti and more. There are also a number of new characters.
Players move into village, buy a small house and then do whatever they want. Time and seasons pass as they do in the real world, so there will always be something unpredictable happening. Collect or buy items, talk to neighbors, go fishing, catch bugs, dig up treasure or hang out with human friends.
Tap the touch screen to type letters, draw designs for clothing or wallpaper, drag clothing or items onto characters or just lead them around the world. Using DS Download Play or Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, players can hang out in real time with up to three friends.
I was not a complete fan of the series when it debuted in the US on the GameCube. The mechanics behind the controls seemed sluggish and there were too many times that I would wait for the controls to "catch up". I know when this title hit the Nintendo DS, I rushed to pick it up for many reasons. The first being that at the time, the only console/hand held that I owned was a NDS and I was hungry for the 3D transition. Secondly, I was ready for something new on the NDS and gaming in general. Amazing, I was hooked and addicted. The controls are very tight and you have options between touch screen and digital. They had refined the control speeds, this suited me fine. The transitions between acres was removed and the whole town is fluid. At "log roll" effect was welcome as well. Combine great features such as local and WiFi connectivity. An easier world to navigate. You are making a great title! What the NDS left out from the original, you can find in Animal Crossing City Folk for the Wii.
No. You have it so, so wrong...
The Wii version is basically a port of the DS version. Half the city is stuff you got in Wild World.
And no AC sequel will ever equal the Gamecube original. It didn't need wifi, because it was packed full of stuff that, sadly, didn't return in the 2 sequels. (Raffles, statues, train station, Porter, NES games, igloos, summer campers, morning aerobics, actually interactive neighbors).
Could You Tell Me how to get my friend code on animal crossing?
you might not be able to if it doesn't like it but you go to the town gates talk to the dog then click friend code (if you can't see this option go to the other dog). just click yes to all of it including the bit where he asks you if you want to change your wi-fi settings change them so it can pick it up then it will go back to the title screen start it up again and go to the town gates talk to the same dog and click friend codes again he should give it to you if he doesn't check your information and that your in range but be warned if your wireless router is to advanced it won't detect it
i absolutely love animal crossing,but i lost it but it dosen't matter anymore because it was a long time ago,and it was on DS so now i have nintendo 3ds ......but i'm still planing to get animal crossing on nintendo 3ds!!!! so exited :–)
LUV THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This game is so addicting !
Truthfully, in the beginning, I was quite addicted to this game, despite my love for the original Animal Crossing. However, this title lost its charm much quicker, and the low-end processing power that the Nintendo DS could withhold really ruined a lot of the quality. Many of the memorable features and exciting heights the original Animal Crossing for the Nintendo GameCube brought were removed from Animal Crossing: Wild World, and many of the returning features were quite scratchy (for example, the graphics AND the soundtracks). I do however, enjoy all Animal Crossing titles, including this one, but I do wish that Nintendo could have improved the quality of this game, in my own opinion.
always stay my FAV game on ds (( Loooove you animal crossing )
Should I get this or wait 'til New Leaf?
This is a great game, but I think that you would be better off just getting the new game when it comes out in two or three months. You probably won't play the old one once the new one comes out.
I'm a huge fan of the animal crossing series,but this game wasn't very addictive for
me.The reason for this is because I played city folk first and when I played wild world I didn't like the graphics.I like this game but I never got addicted to it.
One of the best games for the DS ever. Always will be one of my favorites
@MageNoobMan57 if it's a port of WW, why are there cliffs, real-life holidays, a character living in a fountain who gives you a golden axe, and Wisp, because Wild World does NOT contain any of that? Also, if CF is a port, why doesn't City Folk have La-Di-Day, Yay Day, or the Acorn Festival with Cornimer? It's a port, so it has those holidays- time travels to those dates, oh City Folk does NOT have those, pretty much proving you 100% WRONG about it being a port of Wild World. Try again.
Someone Please Help 300,000+ bells in it if you want them
on dsi... normal ac/ww card... i also have a tt card with a sd too (doesnt have ac/ww).
