Animal Crossing is a very unique game compared to everything else out there. You can run around doing jobs for different animals residents and even take the train to another memory card and another town. The game is pretty complex in most ways but it does have it's weaknesses. For instance, whenever you go to another town, the chances of someone leaving your town for the other one are VERY high. And it doesn't matter what you do to make the animal happy and how many jobs you do for them...they will just randomly leave. The game gets a bit repetitive after a while with you running around doing "fedex quests", but overall, there should be enough to keep you busy like fishing, bug catching, fossil hunting, etc. The game can be incredibly addictive and even my wife who is mostly a non-gamer is interested in it, although she doesn't have a chance to play since the kids and I are playing it so much!
