Mend the Broken Relationship Between Two Towns

Konohana and Bluebell villages were once the friendliest of neighbors. Then a huge dispute erupted between them, over all things, food. Both towns were certain that their cooking was the best in the world. This fierce food feud has transformed the two happy neighbors into the bitterest of rivals. Eventually the harvest goddess steps in and collapses the tunnel connecting the towns. After years have past the goddess reconsiders and decides that the breach between the two villages should be mended and that you are the best hope to do it.

As a new farmer to the area, you choose which village to live in. Will it be Eastern-styled Konohana with its abundant fields of crops, or the animal-loving, European-styled Bluebell? Pick a home, build a thriving farm, and compete in a huge variety of festivals. Develop your skills enough, and you might even find a way to bring these two towns together once again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent, better than GB October 3, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is a definite improvement over Grand Bazaar, but it's still not up to the quality of tree of tranquility or animal parade. To summarize, you're a novice farmer tasked with uniting two feuding villages using the power of...cooking. Yeah, IDGI either, but hey, HM isn't about the plot. When you start out the game you pick from one of the two villages: Bluebell - which has a larger barn but TINY fields, so you focus more on animals. Or Konohana - which has TONS of fields, but a tiny barn so you can only keep 5 animals. Ever. Period. The barn in Konohana never expands, just the fields. And vice versa for bluebell.

The towns really vary in visual appeal. Bluebell is a rustic European style town and Konohana is a feudal Japan styled town. Besides that, both have general stores, and a horse/pet store. Bluebell has the feed/livestock store and Konohana has the seed store. You can travel between both towns, but before you get the owl it takes 3+ in game hours to run between both on the horse.

Pros:

-The music is amazing. The best for a harvest moon handheld yet, especially given it has pieces from the previous games in it. :P
-The graphics are FANTASTIC. The backgrounds and art are just...awesome. When you're foraging on the mountain sometimes you've just got to pause and admire the scenery.
-The ambiance is very good too. When I say ambiance, I mean the small stylistic things that pull you into the game. For example, as the seasons get close to changing, the scenery starts to change to reflect it. No more BAM it's Summer and suddenly the trees are all greener. It slowly transitions and you can see the lilypads/etc. growing in the rivers.
-The addition of trenches removes the tedium or watering every plant.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some Nice Touches Can't Save It Overall. September 23, 2011
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been torn whether to give this game a 2 or 3 due to the disappointment this has become. Let me begin...from the beginning.

Story: You coming to a town and your horse is spooked and ends up crashing. The 2 mayors from Konohama and Bluebell find you. You then proceed to choose which town to live and work in. Konohama is geared towards raising crops, while Bluebell is all about animals. I won't spoil much more, but the progress in the game is based off patching things up between the 2 towns through Cooking Contests.

*Note: You can change towns from the 23rd to 31st of each season, so it's not a big deal if you don't like your initial choice*

Characters: They are bland. They are very similar to ones found in Grand Bazaar. On a side not, the Harvest Goddes is back in this one. She wants you to help patch things up between the villages and whatnot. She also tells you when you've done certain things in the game, like catching 50 fish through hand-fishing. The rest of the town characters open with the same one-liners and become very boring very quickly.

Farming/Animal raising: Let me point out where the Shipping Bins are. There is 1 in each town. That's right, if you want to ship something you have to go to town. There is no shipping bin at your farm. The animal raising is similar to previous HM games on the DS. If you choose Bluebell, you get some useful things for your farm, which is geared towards raising animals. HOWEVER, the farming (my fav. part) has been changed. They've added in the ability to make irrigation trenches to plant your crops and fertilizer into. This is an awesome addition, BUT it falls on its face, due to not getting things in stores that you WILL need to do well. I will highlight that in the next section.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
For some reason, I have almost every Harvest Moon for Nintendo DS and a couple for my Wii, and I've beaten approximately none of them. Zip. Zero. I don't even think I've gotten married in any of them, but well, I really enjoy the series in general. I'm charmed with the whole ordeal, have these plans, and then my interest tends to sort of, I don't know, peter out with the monotony of it? I get discouraged by how little I can accomplish on a day-to-day basis, and it ends up in the bottom of my Nintendo DS case.

This wasn't the case with Tale of Two Towns, which charmed me from the get-go. One of the most positive changes for me was that it allowed me to raise livestock from the get-go, my much preferred way of making money. And gosh, there are so many ways to make money from the get-go! In addition to foraging in the forest, I could also go hand-fishing, foraging for items, catching bugs throughout the mountain. By the end of the first season, I'd made enough money to be able to afford absolutely anything I wanted the next one. It's not the easiest game in the world, but everything feels much more attainable for me than previous versions have. Even the romance feels simpler, since I got to a second 'flower' level with my chosen bachelor before the end of my first season!

And while the game is much more accessible, it remains challenging through various ways - such as the shop scheduling, seasonal upgrades, and a whole host of other issues that you have to try and think your way around.

If you're someone like me, who enjoyed the games more in theory than in practice, and have difficulty keeping up interest - I think this is the game for you. It's been two weeks since I bought it, and I'm already playing my second year when I've never reached it in most games.
