The familiar, fun gameplay is here. You're a kid taking over a farm. The farm is in disrepair and needs help. You start out by weeding the garden, chopping the logs into boards and breaking up rocks. You slowly start growing crops, raising horses and chickens, and making a name for yourself.
You might think this would get boring, but time is running all the time. You have to get food to your animals, play with them, keep your crops watered, get your field cleared, mine for supplies, go into town and chat it up with the local girls.
There are the usual goodies - horse races, other festivals that come on certain days of the year. There are upgrades to your tools and little sprites that help you out with your tasks. You can fall in love with the girl of your dreams and build a life together. With lots of customizable names, from your farm to your dog to your horse, it really begins to feel like your own little world.
The graphics are great, and while it's not a button-mashing extreme, the clock is always ticking so you get a sense that you have to get going with your life in order to feed yourself and your animals. There aren't goals to meet or points to score - there is a farm to tend to and responsibilities to manage. It's a great game for all ages and VERY rewarding.
My one complaint about this game - and keep in mind that this is a HUGELY addictive game for me so I love it - is that it only lets you be a male. Why?? I would LOVE to be a girl on the farm who is dating boys. It can't be THAT hard to switch a few names and pixels. Why am I forced to be a boy? Why can't a girl run a farm?
That being said, it's a ton of fun and well suited for the GBA. Grab a copy - but be warned, you'll be playing it a lot!
Graphics: 5/5 - The graphics in this game are amazing. They have Gamecube quality detail all packed onto a tiny screen. The partial bird's eye view of your character is at the perfect angle, so all of the animals, townspeople, and crops are visible. Unlike Harvest Moon BTN (Back to Nature) nothing in this game looks like a cardboard cut out. These graphics push the GBA to its max!
Story: 4/5 The story is also pretty good. As a kid, you visitted an old man's farm over summer vacation and loved it. The two of you have kept in touch with letters, until the old man passed away. The main character (let's call him Jack), visits the farm. The mayor of the town invites Jack to fix up the farm, and you recall all of the memories and fun times you had. At least in this game they have a decent length cutscene explaining every bit of the storyline.
Controls: 5/5 Plus, the controls in this game are great! Every button has a specific use, and there are some "fast combos" to access menus quicker than scavenging around to find them. The controls are nice and simple, and can be changed under the 'Diary' menu to adjust to your preference. Just another great aspect of Harvest Moon FoMT.
Gameplay: 5/5 This is where every Harvest Moon game always has a good review. The game play is outstanding with over 100 interactions and activities.
Getting upgrades in the game is a well known aspect... but this time the upgrades have changed!Read more ›
