From the Manufacturer
Here's your chance to get away from the smog and traffic of the city and experience life in the country in the farming simulation Harvest Moon. You'll literally enjoy the fruits of your labor as you plant seeds and watch them grow into all kinds of fruit-giving trees, vegetables, and everything else you need to survive. You'll have to consider several factors when planning your farm: when the harvest season occurs, the changing of the seasons, and natural disasters that nobody can predict. In the world of Harvest Moon, it's not who you know, it's what you sow!

$59.99, a reasonable price compared to today's prices. Hm just drew me in, I was tired of all those side-
scrolling games and needed something fresh & original. I read an article bout HM in a videogame magazine,
Game Pro or Nintendo Power, remember those magazines hardcore gamers? Lo and behold, after arriving
home, I popped it into my SNES console, which I no longer have,RIP. This game would be best described as a
farming sim and RPG. There are no clocks, time passes from sun up to sun down. If you're playing, you really
have to watch if it's getting dark. You start on a farm and are given a house, the rest is up to you how to
manage your farm. Fortunately, there are villagers who help you along the way. This game is not for everyone.
if you like action games, this game will bore you to death. It takes quite a bit of patience to get settled in.
You "reap what you sow" applies to HM, you get what you put into it. If you find a copy of this game, the prices
are just ridiculous for HM on Amazon. If you have a WII, just buy it on the Virtual Console for 800 WII points=
$8.00. Recommended only for hardcore RPG-Sim fanatics like me, lol.
+ addicting simplistic game play
+ Smooth controls
+ This is definitely one of the flashier Snes titles
+ Kept me seated till the end
+ Your horse can be used to put items in shipping bin
If you enjoyed other harvest moons or if even the sound of this game catches your attention it probably will be a positive experience. This one starts out hard though.The days don't seem long enough at first but once you get better tools it gets much easier. However I have a few gripes which are...
-No Item Rucksack-(carrying 1 item at a time is extremely time consuming and annoying)
-Even though the short days work for the game at times its annoying that its impossible to talk to everyone, give gifts to everyone -- IE no Rucksack --, and take care of crops all in one day.
-Not only can you not grow and plant crops in winter -- Like most HM games-- but not in fall either.
- To my knowledge the game actually ends after the two years are up.
All in all a great game, However Not worth a 60+ price tag. you could by a 64 and Hm 64 with that... Yeah that would be tight, or back to nature. Also with a wii it's available for download on Wii channel For 8 dollars. If you are a fanatic though I guess the cartridge would make on heck of a collectors item...3.5 to 4 stars!
