Animal Crossing is one of those games that really seems to produce severely divided opinions. Some people scoff at the mere mention of the franchise while others are willing to sit, bloodshot and cramped, for hours, pruning weeds and fishing. Y'know, doing all those Animal Crossing kinds of things.
This Animal Crossing has some neat additions, but the gameplay is, well, it's Animal Crossing. Knowing that, did you try it? Is that what you wanted? If you're not much into the franchise, did you at least rent it, or maybe borrow the game from a friend?
