Super Nintendo game

From the Manufacturer

Here's your chance to get away from the smog and traffic of the city and experience life in the country in the farming simulation Harvest Moon. You'll literally enjoy the fruits of your labor as you plant seeds and watch them grow into all kinds of fruit-giving trees, vegetables, and everything else you need to survive. You'll have to consider several factors when planning your farm: when the harvest season occurs, the changing of the seasons, and natural disasters that nobody can predict. In the world of Harvest Moon, it's not who you know, it's what you sow!

5.0 out of 5 stars The addicting game December 20, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The Game-10/10 Harvest moon, a farming simulation game, is a very unique game with a good story line to back it up. Being 110% original, this game contains more secrets and things to explore than any other game I have played. With the exception of being a highly difficult game, this makes playing all the more addicting. As you are playing, there are goals you feel you must meet, but only if you are a serious player. Natsume has created a flawless entertainment game;yet, the company is often misunderstood. All the people I have ley play this game feel they must go out and buy one of their own; what can I say, I would do the same thing.

Difficulty-10/10 Although some people think this game is for kids, I am sure a kid would never be able to fathom the world of harvest moon. The game requires a large quantity of work and effort to attain the simplist of things, such as photos for your album and falling in love with another character. Aside from eing difficult, the game will force you into eing responsible foe animals and your social life. Secrets, photos, and being friends with every person in the game requires patience and skill.

Music/Sound-10/10 Harvest Moon has different toons for each of the four seasons you play within the year. To my suprise, these repeting songs don't seem to become annoying because you are so focused on the game. As well as good sounds, the game contains many songs for festivals and events. An example of a well done sound effect is when you are nearing the end of a horse race and the crowd begins to cheer, or even the church bells that ring when you are getting married. These are all classic toons that help the game be original.

Secrets-10/10 This game totals over 100 secrets that are not facile to achieve.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't want to spend a fortune on this game? July 5, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Let me get something out of the way; Harvest Moon is a hidden gem on the SNES. At the time it was released, it was a relatively obscure game, but it has since spawned many sequels. Harvest Moon took the relatively boring concept of farming, and created an addicting game. As such, this series has a legion of fans.

That being said, unless you're totally intent on acquiring this game in its cartridge form, there are other ways you can obtain it for far less money.

Many of you might chime in and recommend emulation, but since I don't have any experience with emulation and don't know the legal requirements of the emulation process, I hesitate to suggest it.

However, there is a legitimate way to acquire this game for far less money by purchasing it off of the Nintendo Wii's Virtual Console. The Virtual Console has many classic games spanning a variety of systems. Many of the these games are FAR cheaper than their cartridge counterparts, and some of them are not. Harvest Moon currently retails for 800 Wii points or $8.00 on the Virtual Console.

What you will need:

1. You will need a Wii, and while the console will set you back $250, the Wii will essentially pay for itself because it offers MANY rare titles in addition to New Adventure Island.

2. You will need internet access. The Wii is Wi-Fi compatible right out of the box, but if you don't have a wireless router, you can purchase a fairly inexpensive device that will allow you to connect an ethernet cord to the Wii. If you have to purchase such a device, you may also need to purchase an ethernet cord or at least a longer one than what you have.

3. You will need an SD card to download your games onto.

5.0 out of 5 stars The original classic. August 9, 2001
By Ben
When I first found this, I had absolutely no idea that this game would be so good. All I really wanted was just a little break from Squaresoft RPGs, but what I got was the first game in a whole new awesome series.
By now, everyone knows what Harvest Moon is all about: You have a certain number of years to run a successful ranch by farming crops, raising animals, and selling various kinds of produce. You upgrade your tools into stronger and more efficient ones, and you visit town to buy things or talk to people.
Now, I've played the PSX version, Harvest Moon: Back to Nature as well. Although that one is excellent (and, from what I hear, better than the N64 version), I have to agree with the other reviewer, Bart: This game just has a classic "feel" about it that the others can't quite match. Maybe it's the style, or maybe it's just because it was the original and the first one I played. I don't know.
Anyway though, if you can still find this game in any capacity, get it. And then, after you've seen what it's like, grab the Playstation and Game Boy versions. They may not be exactly the same or inspire that same feeling, but you certainly won't be disappointed either.

By Bart
This may only be the first in a great series but this game has that feeling none of the other harvest moon games have. In my opinion I like this Harvest moon game the best.It may not have sheep or all those festivals and events but the gameplay has that touch others dont.There are so many different things to do and get that i never got the same complete ending twice. I strongly advise you to try this game!
