Review: Animal Crossing

System: Nintendo Wii

Reading: Some Reading

Explanation time: Some Explaining

Educational: Reading, map reading, hand eye coordination, cause and effect (if I water the flowers they won't die), banking.

Game Play: Your character collects fish, dinosaur bones, fruit and bugs to exhibit at the museum or sell for money. You can buy items for your home, clothes, or do fun things in town with the money you make. Gamer2.0 has a hard time with the Wiimote, but has no problem at all working the nun-chuck to walk around and dig up bones. When we play with her, she likes knowing what the town people are saying to her, otherwise she clicks through the conversations.


Gamer2.0 rating: “Can I please ride the bus?”
