You can play as a boy or girl. Jaime's gender is the opposite of the main character's gender.
The animals are adorable and very productive on your farm. You cannot milk or shear your sheep and cows when they are pregnant.
You have a lot of attractive bachelors and bachelorettes to choose from.
The soundtrack for the game is very soothing.
I recommend the gamecube version all the way. Stay away from the Wii version it sucks.
The package came on time, and I couldn't be happier. I played this game a lot when I was younger, and I am way too excited to play it once again!
Harvest Moon: Magical Melody has the best balance in farming and interaction with the townsfolk I've seen in a Harvest Moon yet.
There are at least five different crops to plant in each season and you take into account the fertility of the land (you can supplement it with fertilizer. Livestock is limited to a few different types including cows, chicken, horses, sheep, and maybe one or two more to be found/unlocked further in the game. As usual, you get a dog near the beginning of the game. You get a second pet later as well (you'll see what it is).
There are plenty of townsfolk for your farmer to get to know. Enough to substantially mitigate any sense of monotony you may have as you water your plants and tend your livestock every day in the game. There are several festivals each season and there are benchmarks with each townsperson where they will come give you a gift (once you reach a certain level of closeness with them. You need to fulfill certain requirements to have all of the characters move into town (i.e., ship a certain amount of ore/herbs/clay; plant a certain number of trees).
In my opinion, this is a necessary feature in each Harvest Moon game (which is why that futuristic one on the PSP fails). As it was in any good Harvest Moon, you can get to know members of the opposite sex and marry one of them. If you play a male, there are 10 women to date. As a female, there are 10 men to date.
If you are familiar with Achievements on the Xbox 360 or Trophis on the PS3, Magical Melody has something quite similar (although you can't go online and brag as you could with the PS3 or 360): Notes. When you hit milestones and accomplish things in the game, you will be rewarded with a Note. These Notes, to me, are primarily there to give you a sense of accomplishment. It makes you want to continue to play. Of course, the "main purpose" of the game is to collect Notes in order to revive the Harvest Goddess.
If you have ever liked Harvest Moon and own either a Gamecube of Wii (remember Wii-owners, your Wii can play GC games), you definitely should give this game a try. And for folks who have never tried Harvest Moon, this is definitely a great one to start on.
