Top Customer Reviews
I bought this Harvest Moon long after it had been released, in March of 2013. Even though I had to dig my old Game Boy Advance SP out from storage, it was well worth it. Having a title like this on a portable system is pure genius, because you can play for any amount of time you like, work and progress in creating your own farming "empire," and put it down at a moment's notice, to be continued later.
This game allows you to manage a farm from the ground up, where you raise crops and animals, become rich and successful, even have a wife and children. There is only a vague storyline/plot, because you make all the choices, for better or worse. The greatest attribute is that this game is both simple and deep at the same time, blending easy tasks and game play with a wide range of choices, outcomes, secrets, and items to keep you interested.
One minor thing is the complete lack of violence in this game. It may turn off some gamers, but I would say this to anyone who would pass it by based on that: Give it a chance!! I am a 22 year old guy, coming from a strong background of Legend of Zelda, Need for Speed and Call of Duty, and I still think this game is an absolute prize. The graphics remind me of those in "Legend of Zelda: a Link to the Past". Not amazing or groundbreaking, but simple and still great to look at. It may seem childish at first, but this game takes dedication and maturity to be fully enjoyed.
>>>The short version, for all of you fast-paced people out there:
Buy this if you are looking for a fun distraction. It's a fantastic strategy/farming game. Also perfect for killing time in waiting rooms, doctor's offices, the lines at the DMV, or just on the couch during a day off. The internet flash farming games pale in comparison to this. It's like comparing night and day. Plus it fits in your pocket. Brilliant.
BUT BE WARNED
This is an old game which required a battery for saved data. The battery will most likely be dead when it arrives and you will have to replace it by ordering a new battery kit (found on Amazon) or by buying a battery at the store and working some soldering skills.
The game itself was fun, but I got annoyed with it because none of the females would marry me! I even looked it up online and did what it said and I still couldn't get any of the girls to notice me. Sad...
