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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Freezing Issues November 4, 2011
By J. Chan
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I love Harvest Moon, and this is a fun game, but it should be noted that this game has some pretty nasty freezing issues that are unavoidable. They're very sporadic--almost random, in fact. So while there are times you can play just fine and not end up with a freeze, there are other times when the game will freeze on you multiple times in a session and you'll lose your progress.

Really, you shouldn't waste your time on the 3DS version of this game. The 3D isn't the best, and the DS version runs perfectly fine.

I'm rating this with one star not because it's a bad game, but because loyal fans had to wait an extra month for Natsume to release a $40 that was clearly not play tested enough. I'm frankly ashamed that Natsume is not commenting on this issue and is actively deleting tweets and messages on their site to cover it up.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Good and the Bad November 6, 2011
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I became a fan of the game since it was in gameboy colour and I was so excited to get this new one for the 3DS...but I have been miserable since I've gotten it. The game is like all other Harvest Moon Games games; you're a farmer and well...you farm. The biggest problem is the game freezes and you can only save at the end of the day. So if you have the best day of you're life: the girl finally says yes to your proposal, you catch that rare fish, you complete a really hard quest or you worked so hard to get a truckload of money all that can dissolve right in your hands. It is just frustrating when the game freezes and you basically have to pop out the cartridge and put it back in again because the DS wouldn't respond either. It would have been a fun game but there is no possible way you cane enjoy it to its full potential.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the Cream of the Crop November 9, 2011
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
- The 3D is completely tacked-on, and characters look like they're floating above the ground.
- Occasional severe and mysterious framerate issues.
- Once, the game froze as it loaded a new area. I had to hold the power button until the 3DS finally shut off.
- Extremely repetitive gameplay compared to other entries, and I'm a long-time Harvest Moon fan.
- Annoying sound effects. Generic music that plays at double the speed while riding a horse. Terrible!
- Clunky, frustrating menus and item management.

I've been playing Harvest Moon since it debuted on Super Nintendo. I can't believe how drastically the title changed since then, and I would not recommend this title to anyone - fans or otherwise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy the eShop version April 27, 2013
By G. M
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you really want to play this game but don't feel like paying 50 bucks for the DS version and don't want to get the glichy 3DS version, I'm happy to say that the digital version, available through the 3DS eShop, seems to be fixed!

I have been playing this a lot and haven't encountered any problems at all, so if you're a fan of the series and want to play this fantastic game I'd recommend you to get it through the eShop. It's a little more expensive than this, but it's worth it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Such a shame. November 13, 2011
By Tomochi
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I love Harvest Moon. One of the best things about the game is that it's very task oriented, and you can work a single day at a time, while collecting objects, taking care of animals, and growing crops. I will say one thing about this game: I love the controls. I love how intuitive they are and the Tool Selection part is especially nice. I also love how friendly they chose to be with the storage system- I haven't run out of space yet, and the cart upgrades that your horse can pull are very handy. The animals are adorable- even if the Petting Game gets old after the first three times. My beef isn't with the game, or the game controls, or the town, or the townspeople. I love all of that.

My beef is the same as everyone else's: the freezing. I have only experienced freezing back in the days of Harvest Moon 64, and even then it was rare at best. I think my entire lifetime playing that game, I only glitched and frozen maybe three times (and that's being generous). This game? It's gotten to a point where I go up a mountain and pray to the Harvest Goddess that I don't freeze. And then I usually do anyway. I have no idea who the heck tested this game, but clearly they did not test it enough. Nastume should be completely ashamed of the quality of testing done on this game- especially with how long they made everyone wait after the release date got pushed back again and again.

Now I agonize over the question- Do I return the copy I got for a new one and hope it doesn't freeze AS much? Some people claim they never freeze while playing, others say it is as frequent as mine, if not more. It's not enough to keep me from playing, but it sure does dishearten you when you just finished all the chores in the morning, only to find you have to reset the game manually to do it all again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get the 3DS version and just don't run the 3D June 4, 2013
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Well I read plenty of reviews that said it had freezing issues which I thought was quite the problem, but I felt that the issues were caused by running the 3D element. It was quite a bit cheaper than the DS version and it had the petting mini-game, so I went ahead and got the 3DS version, thinking that, either way I don't get 3D so why not spend less money?

I was right! I've had it since last october and have not ONCE got a freezing issue and I even run the 3D for short periods during various festivals and events.

As for the game itself...if you like Harvest Moon, your going to like this. It's a great little game and lots of fun. I love the addition of being able to change your outfit, the bachelors and bachelorettes are all very interesting, the alpacas are super cute, and the ability to focus on either plants or animals more means you get to do more of what you like.
