Erm don't reviewers nor gamers even consider for just "1" minute that there are like millions of WII owners out there who've NEVER EVER played an Animal Crossing game before.... hmmm?? No I guess not.

How come no one cries when Madden gets a low score every year for not changing?

Aren't there more and more PS360s being sold every year, and by that token, more people that haven't played Madden?

The game is more of the same, and is reviewed as such.

 

Dude what are u talking about?  Madden always gets in the 80s doesn't matter how long it's been out.  In fact i just checked it's rating on ps3 & it's increased every single time.  Also, Madden has been around for way longer than animal crossing.

 

Pls get ur facts straight before u comment.

Yes, on the PS3! Each version since Madden 07 has gotten better, on the PS3.

I never owned a GC when AC came out, but I remember hearing that in the GC version you could collect & play some full NES games. VC most likely killed anything like that from happening in the Wii version.

Thats f-ing pwnage right there.

 

Maybe someone else should get their facts straight.

 

There is no reason for the "innovative" gaming company to continue to put out near direct rehashes of its games and to have its fans continue to blindly follow them.

Its one thing to say if it aint broke dont fix it, but you can change a game completely and maintain what made the first fun and great. Or you can do what Nintendo is doing, and release the indentical game and purely cash in on people that for some amazing reason continue to buy the same game over and over again.

Oh well.

 



I own all three current consoles and a great gaming rig, now thats out of the way.

"Why post something like this when all it will get is PS3 owners blinded to reality replying? BOTH THE PS3 AND BLUE-RAY WILL NOT LAST 3 YEARS! TECHNOLOGY CHANGED TOO FAST!"

"is it Wii FIt that has sold as many as PS3's sold? Thats a LOL Look at the total sales of software is it just me that sees Nintendo titles hitting 10m+ and you say they arent making a difference? Another LOL!"

"Hell, with all the negative hype Sony spin, people just aren't interested cost is too high and to get the true HD experience (1080p, 7.1 surround) you will need a $1000+ system. THAT IS GOING TO DO IT IN A RECESSION! PS4 will not happen"

Why would u put ps2? Of course ps2 is going to get lower scores after ps3 versions come out.

If u want to look at ps2 before ps3 came out, it used to get 90s as well as 80s. This game has been around for ever and it always gets higher than 80 even though not much changes from year to year.

It's because the new generation of Maddens have significant differences in gameplay with new features. The Madden 2011 and 2012 will have lower scores because EA won't change to much and repeat the process.



I think the problem with this Animal Crossing is that most of the changes aren't easily noticeable. Sure there are more items, townsfolk, fish, bugs, bones, and the city, but some of the more interesting stuff that's changed isn't easily noticeable on the surface.

While not really a feature, everything has improved from past versions. This is especially noticeable when interacting with the townspeople. I have yet to run into duplicate dialog, (besides a few greetings and job requests) and feels much more natural as a whole. One of the coolest things I've had happen is Ruby (the neighbor rabbit) stopped me and commented on the specific type of sunglasses I was wearing. All the residents seem to have personal preferences about the other residents as well, and you can really see who's popular and who's not in town.

This might be a small adjustment, but they finally let you design clothing in individual sections, so that you now have quite a bit more freedom in what you make. I know this was just a huge deal for me as in the previous Animal Crossing I was a pattern designing fiend.

What may be the coolest thing, however; is that if you walk a common daily routine enough you'll eventually wear a path in the ground. This isn't something that happens overnight either, but can take up to 3-4 weeks before you start seeing noticeable results, and up to two months before the grass has been completely worn away. This is the type of thing, where your actions effect your surroundings in subtle ways that I hope they've more of.

So while core game play may not have changed much, (you still do the collect the furniture and pay the mortgage thing) calling it a cheap cash in or the exact same game really doesn't cut it. Especially if some of the best parts of the game  haven't been found out yet.
