Based on the popular Japanese game series, BOKUJO MONOGATARI, this is one of the craziest games you'll ever lay eyes on. Begin by giving yourself a name and setting your own birthday, then choose one of eight pets to take along as your companion. You'll embark on an epic journey, facing off against all sorts of wild enemies and deadly obstacles. With more items and tools than previous installments of the game, HARVEST MOON 3 boasts improved graphics, longer gameplay, and higher AI than any of its stellar predecessors. The thrust of the story follows you on a trek through a lushly detailed village, as you talk with villagers to get advice about your journey. Valuable clues will help you solve puzzles and unlock items, giving you a greater chance of reaching the game's adorable ending. If you're in the market for a true epic with a heart of gold, you can't do much better than HARVEST MOON 3.
In Harvest Moon 3, the mayor of your grandfather's hometown has worrisome news: a greedy corporation is about to turn your family's farm into a landfill. Even worse, the village can't outbid the company because it doesn't have enough money. Now it's up to you to save your farm and the town from a landfill! Don't worry--you won't have to do it all alone.
With more gameplay options, items, and events than ever before, you play as a boy or a girl--each with individual strengths and weaknesses--and get to select from a wide range of pets that also have unique characteristics and abilities. As you fight to save the farm, you'll embark on new quests, enjoy more shops, and play exciting minigames, including snowboarding! As with other Harvest Moon titles, you can choose to get married, and, as always, work the soil to make your dreams come true!

Graphics (4/5) If you have played HM2, you'll notice a similarity in the graphics. They are still the same, with small details within the weeds, stones, etc. A good option for this game is that you can choose the farmer's clothes... suiting to your liking of the graphics. I find this system really neat! Overall, the graphics are the standard ones, but I love changing the colors of the outfits!
Controls: (4/5)- Alright, since this is a GBC game, the controls are simple simple simple. Hold B to run, and A to use tools. Its that easy to control your farmer! The only thing is that choosing the tools involves pressing select, then pressing A, then pressing select over the tool you want, then pressing B, and press select to close the menu. Also, you have to hold B and a direction to run, which gets your finger hurting and can damage your GBC/GBA in minutes.
Gameplay (5/5) I find the gameplay in this game just terrific! Farming may not sound so great, right? But it is amazingly addicting!
Also, this game has a big change from the other gameboy games. To start, you can get married to your partner who you were trying to help out. Also, there is a totally different island to go on that is for shopping, watching movies, etc. There are a number of cutscenes, and I like the fact that they mean something- rather than just to have fun.
Crops are another feature that differs from the other games. In HM3GBC , you have a shovel in which you can dig a pond and spring up. You can use this shovel to make waterways in your fields so you can plant the one of a kind crop- rice.
Now animals take the spotlight. A new animal is avalible in this game- a horse. But not just one, but eight of them you can own. This game also offers a unique breeding system. Instead of a miracle potion, you have to put two opposing gendered animals in this corner of your barn. Basically, breeding is free and efficiant to raising a successful farm.
Finally, instead of slowly upgrading your house and starting with furniture, it is the other way around. You buy furniture for a huge house... but at a costly price. In this game, you gotta work hard to succeed, or else you will fail.
Replayability- (3/5) Most Harvest Moon games have great replay value. However, this game wouldnt have what I consider "hours of replay". There are tons of upgrades for your house and everything, but once you get all of the upgrades, the idea of farming is useless. What does the money go to? Buying seeds. Where do the seeds go? In the bin to make a profit. When you have everything, though, what is the use of a profit.
Overall-(4/5) Overall this game is worth every penny. With over 50 new features, this game is a total blast. I would highly recommend this for long car trips, as the gameplay lasts for 30+ hours. If you ever see this game on amazon or at another retailor, pick it up. This game is VERY VERY rare and hard to find nowadays, as very few copies were made. For those of you who haven't played the series, and are looking for a challenge, get this game for sure!
there is a bank where you can put money in and take some out as you need it and this store buys your produce.the telephone in your house is how you sell your produce.And there are more crops like rice and wheat that you can grow.Other places include grasslands where you can Pick berries,chop wood,and you can snowboard here in the winter.other places are the cliff where you can Take your girlfriend on dates and sometime you can get married.The forest is where you can go fishing.And the other place is the mountians but I have not figured it out yet.And One more place on the mainland is a aquarium where you can donate your fish that you catch.And you can go see them.And one more thing. you can Build your own boat.This is a fun fun game and thats why I rate it 5 stars.
It provides you with hours of fun and figuring out things. The animals are cute and you can own quite a few of them.
The best part is the size of your growing field. It's huge!
The music, oh how i loved the music. I can still remember the spring, summer, and fall song even after all these years..
Most people would say that most Harvest moon games are not a game that you would want to play again after beating it, but I played this one at least 4 times. (Let's just say because I played as a girl and I didn't realize that the game ends no matter what after the 2nd year I believe?) So I kept trying over and over to beat it. :/
So whatever you do, PLAY AS A BOY!
All I can say is this game is the best ever and I will never forget those days of me playing it. :)
Buy it and see for yourself! Old school always beats new school.
