Update:Now that I have married and had children and practically completed the game, I can safely say that this is better than most Harvest Moon games I have ever played.I will include some tips below free of spoilers that you will want to know unless you want to curl up with regret. Customization is available, and after creating your character, you live with Gramma Eda who will "tutor" you for 5 days. For those like me who know about the series gameplay, it will seem unnecessary but it does get you ready to start your own farm.
After you get your farm, you will have the option to upgrade you shack-before this, during the tutorials, Eda will let you explore the town. The map is very good, the characters are ALL likeable-except for Elise so far-and this is where you need to stock up on twigs, rocks, pebbles and whatever materials you can find. To upgrade your shack right away and free of charge, you need to have some materials to do so.
You can start gifting the villagers. Fritz likes bugs, Mistel likes butterflies, Raegar likes Seaweed, Eda likes flowers, Klaus likes orange juice-which Eda will give you-Iris likes coffee packs, etc. These are just some of the really quick and easy gifts from the beginning.Read more ›
Are you familiar with Harvest Moon? To sum up, you own a rundown or vacant plot of land to do with what you want. In the case of Story of Seasons, the goal that the game has for you is to make the town popular by managing to trade (i.e. sell your goods) with other towns that interact with yours in the form of a trade depot. More trading means more notoriety, which then means more people will want to visit and trade with the town. While this is a consistent objective, the truth is that you're simply let loose to have your own goals. Want to get to know the townsfolk better? Give them gifts and interact with them to build relationships. Want to form a romantic relationship (or relationships if that's your thing, despite consequence), get married, have a family? Just like in Harvest Moon, go right ahead. Likewise if all you want to do is make a robust farm.
The gameplay is very repetitive, but that's exactly what you should expect from this genre. It's about keeping your crops alive and maintaining an income to afford new seeds, structures, furnishing, livestock, blueprints, recipes, etc.Read more ›
First off let me start with the disclaimer that most of the reviewers for this are going to mention. This is the true next game in the Bokujo Monogatari series as they call it in Japan. This is the successor to Harvest Moon A New Beginning. Natsume localized HM: A New Beginning, they didn't make that game, they only localized it for North America. For some reason or another Marvelous chose to not let them localize their games anymore and XSEED localized this new one, Story of Seasons seems to be the new title for the series, for here on out in North America. The game Harvest Moon The Lost Valley which Natsume put out last fall was not made by Marvelous and has no connection to the Bokujo Monogatari series. It was Natsume's first attempt at making their own farming sim and not just localizing since they're no longer allowed to localize the Marvelous created series. Natsume just happens to have the rights to the Harvest Moon english name.
Now moving onto my review.I'm reviewing partly off of my own experience of the game so far, as of writing this being at the beginning of Summer Year 1. But this review is also partially based off of what I've read in faqs or little forum thread guides from what few there are online right now. This game is definitely an improved game in the series from it's prior game in the series, HM: ANB. With every new Bokujo Monogatari there is a lot improved, but some stuff they've also taken out and changed. This game they made a lot more difficult.Read more ›
