5.0 out of 5 stars Nearly Perfect November 6, 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game was officially released today, but I was fortunate enough to get my pre-order copy 4 days early and I've been playing it pretty much non-stop since then. I cannot say enough good things about it.

It's not as "pretty" visually as Tale of Two Towns (that game had a lot of texture!), and the 3D is terrible (when is it not?), but A New Beginning makes up for any lack of "prettiness" with its awesome gameplay. (And, don't get me wrong, it isn't a BAD looking game by any means!)

Everything I thought "Gee, I wish I could ________" from the last game was added into this game. For example, instead of pushing A to pick up an item while foraging and then pressing Y to put it in your bag, you simply press A and your character puts the item into their bag automatically--completely streamlining the process! They've also added the option to buy recipes to cook from, rather than trial-and-error experimentation (which, I don't know about you, but that led to countless "fail" dishes on my end!).

But even with all the little things to make the gameplay easier, Natsume's added just enough new challenges to keep things interesting. In addition to your stamina bar, you now have a "health" bar. And the stamina bar decreases much more quickly than in Tale of Two Towns. In ToTT I saved my cooking for the monthly cook-offs, but in A New Beginning I've found that I actually have to EAT food at some point during the day if I'm going to get all of my chores done! :O Eating the food actually MEANS something in this game!

Sleep also has more significance in A New Beginning. You can no longer keep your character awake all hours of the night and still wake up refreshed at 6am the next morning.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have to be frank--I don't think the Harvest Moon developers have given us a truly good, solid portable iteration in the series for a while. I quite enjoyed (and still do!) Harvest Moon DS (the first entry in the series for the Nintendo DS) and its sister, DS Cute. I wasn't hugely fond of Island of Happiness. Grand Bazaar and Tale of Two Towns were both absolute flops, in my opinion. So I had my doubts about this game, and I went into it with a pessimistic attitude. I even bought one for a friend as a birthday present so we could compare opinions.

The game has a slow start, for sure. Especially if you're a seasoned Harvest Moon veteran, you'll find that the tutorial at the start is long, drawn-out, dry, and utterly pointless. Yes, it's a new game on a new system, but Harvest Moon is such an easy game to figure out I found the tutorial a headache more than anything. I skipped the entire thing by pressing the A button and was able to figure out all the controls and the menu within about forty-five seconds. On the other hand, it's good for true beginners and especially those who have never picked up a game console before in their life. The REAL slow start, however, is not the tutorial. (I wish!) Instead, it's the fact that Echo Village is almost completely deserted when you move in. There is an explanation--the town is falling apart and most people have packed up and left--but still, for the first season there is virtually nothing to do but plant some seeds, forage, and chat with the few villagers who do remain there with you. One of my favorite parts of Harvest Moon is breeding animals and raising them, so it might not be a bad idea for you to give it a try.

Where the game does shine initially though is with the customization system.

3.0 out of 5 stars As much pain as pleasure February 19, 2013
Verified Purchase
I've played many of the iterations of Harvest Moon over the years. My favorites were Harvest Moon DS Cute and Friends of Mineral Town. This offering, other than a slightly different look, brings little that's new to the play. You don't have to clear weeds, logs & stones from your fields (which I rather enjoyed doing) but keeps the agonizingly tiresome system of moving your animals around. The chickens aren't bad, you just pick them up and move them outside (or inside), but the cows...come on, Natsume, surely you can do better than this!

Having to push each cow out of the barn every day takes forever & is an insult to cows everywhere (I grew up in a ranching community & I can assure you, a cow knows where the barn door is). Adding insult to injury, the cows tend to get sick/and/or ' moody' if you leave them out in the rain or in the barn too long. Honestly, these cows get more vapors than a troop of Victorian ladies on holiday in the Costa Brava. You can take them to a spa to cure their 'stress' but really....

The only bachelor available early in the game is Neil. He's cute but so surly that I would rather have picked up my ax and gone all Lizzie Borden on him than give him the cow treats he likes so much. The bachelors' attitudes toward you are indicated by the color of their 'heart' icon but there is no indicator of the villagers' friendship levels for you which is annoying.

In a similar vein, it would be nice if you could click on the town upgrades you're performing and see what percentage of completion you're at. As it was, I had to run around, repeatedly counting items to try to decide if I was 'done' or not. Also, moving and placing items is a lot more difficult than it should be.
