Guitar Hero on Tour: Decades


As the second Guitar Hero DS title released in less than six months, you might expect that Decades is fairly similar to the original On Tour. Mostly, you\'d be right.

Animal Crossing: City Folk - Wii review at Thunderbolt Games


Leaving home for the first time and to pastures new; the chance to meet new people, experience new cultures and ways of life, work in unfamiliar territory and have a good time. Animal Crossing has been telling the tale of a lost and lonely bachelor,...

Animal Crossing City Folk Game Review–Absolute Absurdity


Animal Crossing: City Folk, now available on the Nintendo Wii (were you expecting Xbox 360?)  may well be the most absurd game I've ever played.  And considering not so long ago I was writing about a game called You Have To Defecate Upon King Bhumibol,...

Animal Crossing: City Folk


Another minor, if unwelcome change: the Gyroid that used to welcome you home and save your game has been removed. Instead, in a bit of cross-contamination, they've stolen the Harvest Moon save paradigm, where you save upon going to sleep (in your dingy...

Same inane, yet strangely hypnotic gaming paradigm ; Ability to chat with “friends” online, which could prove amusing if the conversations are made to veer into the absurd

Few changes from the original. You’re essentially buying the 2002 release all over again, but for a new system and presumably for more money. This could easily be classified as unconscionable, if they didn’t pull the exact same crap with DVDs and...

When the first Animal Crossing came out on the GameCube, despite my bemused detachment from the foolishness of the whole thing, I would find myself spending hours on end messing around in its inane virtual world. I’d be there shaking every tree,...

Animal Crossing: City Folk


You need a special kind of patience to be a long-time Nintendo fan. Even looking beyond the casual versus hardcore debate Nintendo has ignited with the Wii, they do quite a lot to make things tough for their fans. If you need an example, just look at...

It's Animal Crossing on the Wii

We've played this game before. Twice. Three times if you live in Japan

I suppose that the so-called non-gamer may find Animal Crossing: City Folk to be a wonderful novelty that fits their sensibilities perfectly, but for longtime Nintendo fans, it’s hard to see it as anything more than a half-hearted cash-in and a...

Animal Crossing: City Folk


When the original Animal Crossing was released in America on the Gamecube in 2002 it had mixed impressions, sure it was regarded as a good game, but what the hell was it all about? A Boy or Girl living in a town full of Animals, working for a Raccoon...

Animal Crossing: City Folk


It is actually somewhat surprising that it has taken this long for Nintendo's Animal Crossing franchise to appear on the Wii, given the console's focus on "non-gamers" and family interaction, but Animal Crossing: City Folk has finally arrived....

Animal Crossing: City Folk


Is it a new sequel or a glorified port of Wild World?

Still a fun simulation game ; Voice chat

Little more than an enhanced port of Wild World ; Very limited auction house ; Same old Nintendo online frustrations

Are any classic ports XBLA full-on emulation? I was under the impression that every XBLA game had to be reprogrammed to meet minimum HD requirements, so they could tweak multiplayer code while they're at it. But I don't own a 360, so I could be wrong.
