Jump into the game Animal Crossing and have fun starting your life, as a game character that is. You start out on a bus taking a ride to a new town to start your new life, you get to pick your name and then once you get to town you get to pick your own brand new house. But note when picking your house you will have to work off your loan doing odd jobs and then finding a new job when the odd jobs run out. But don’t worry the work you find is fun and it is all helping other people. Taking a stroll around your new town you will get to meet the towns members, make sure you are nice to them because being nice to those around you is just as important in the game as it is in real life. If you get bored in the town, that is ok you can just hop back on the bus and head to the city where you can do things like go shopping. The controls of the game are easy, which is a good thing because the game is rated E for everyone. My older 2 children who are 7 and 5 easily grasped the concept of how to move the character and open doors quickly. Navigating the menu is easy as well, and finding what you need to is simple. The only challenge my kids had with it was reading what they were saying, but that was easily solved by having my 7 year old read out loud what was typed on the screen so my 5 year old knew what it said. (Little did she realize that she is practicing her reading while playing a game). Saving the game is also very easy, there is no tricky way to save Overall this game is a ton of fun and my kids really enjoy it and I have to admit that when I play it with them I enjoy myself too, the only thing I would change is that more then one person could play at a time but that is where teaching the kids about sharing and taking turns comes into play 🙂
