Harvest Moon A New Beginning

Family Friendly Gaming

  • Excerpt: Harvest Moon 3D A New Beginning is a bit of a disappointment for me. It is one of the slowest Harvest Moon games I have ever played. It takes almost the full first season for things to start to progress. At that point only the truest most die hard fans will still be playing.

  • Summary: As mentioned earlier, this is certainly one of the more accessible and playable Harvest Moon games I’ve experienced over the past few years, with its biggest barrier to entry being the excessive locking of content and features.

Cute, open-ended farming series adds more customization.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that Harvest Moon 3D: A New Beginning is a relaxed and cute farming sim that's very child-friendly, provided kids are patient enough for the game's languid pacing, detail-oriented gameplay, and involved storyline. The game is full of friendly, hard-working role models.

Harvest Moon 3D: A New Beginning review – animal farm crossing

metro.co.uk
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: Ironically the beginning is by far the worst part, but once you’ve got some headway this is the best Harvest Moon for several years and a fun alternative to Animal Crossing.
  • Pros: Plenty of freedom to play the game however you want, with some interesting new customisation options, and lots of side quests and fun distractions.
  • Cons: The opening few hours are painfully and unnecessarily slow, with far too much of the good unlocked until much later. Simplistic dialogue and a lot of repetition in tending your farm.

  • Summary: Harvest Moon 3D: A New Beginning, the endearing farming sim with the ridiculously slow paced tutorial which then rewards you with hours of fun gaming time... if you can hold out for that long.

  • Conclusion: Manage to survive through the first month and the personalisation element rewards you with massive future choices. Dig deep, put in the effort and Harvest Moon: A New Beginning can really bloom into something special.
  • Pros: Can take everything at your own pace, New animals added, Serious feeling of accomplishment rebuilding a village, Village customisation feels more personal
  • Cons: The first month drags with tutorials and lack of stuff happening, Repetition may put some off

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: New Beginning? Try slow beginning. Actual crops can be planted, grown and harvested in the time it takes the latest Moon to creep through its tutorials. It's not even covering new ground. With a boy (or girl) taking up farming to turn around Echo Village's ailing fortunes this isn't our first rodeo.
