Not for left handed players due to stylus only movement...

  • Summary: What a PAIN to try and play this game with its stylus as the only form of character movement! I litterally turned on the game for the first time, went through all the initial cut scenes and went to start my first try at free play. 10 minutes after first turning on the game, I realized this is a BIG pain and not going to be worth my time and effort. I'm very disappointed... I've been playing HM games since the SNES title and I've been an avid fan ever since.

What is this!?!

  • Summary: Ok, I love the Harvest Moon games, but seriously what is this? I hated this game. The story appeared to be interesting but I couldn't play for more than I few minutes. The controls were terrible (think Legend of Zelda for the DS but 10 times worse) and made for my character dropping items in the wrong spots and losing items. Plus the graphics were odd, you almost looked like a bobble head...

Island of Unhappiness

  • Excerpt: "...a huge fan of the Harvest Moon franchise. I have every single game they have released…including the cute version which was exactly the same as a previous game just with a female main character. I didn’t care, I still loved it. Every Harvest Moon that has come out within what is now 15 years has gone straight to my wish list and I have spent many happy hours farming, mining and rearing livestock. I was recently wandering through my (slightly insane) ...
  • Pros: .  .  .  It isn't raining outside at time of writing
  • Cons: A heartbreaking addition to the franchise

Don't Waste Your Money!!!

  • Summary: (By Tonyc_uk's daughter by the way!!!) I got this game because I thought it would be fun to run a farm and grow crops and look after animals. But when I went on it I realised I had made a big mistake. Firstly, you have to wait until a certain time to sell your crops and items. Also, you have to save up for aaagggggeeeeessssssssss to have enough money to buy a new building and new animals.

Not what I was hoping for!

  • Summary: I think the main problem is, I'm always trying to find a game that's as good as Animal Crossing...... and I can't!! Having read about the Harvest Moon games I thought they might be something similar, but this is nowhere near as good. My daughter has enjoyed playing on it, but even she has got frustrated with it!

Not Good :(

  • Conclusion: I have always loved harvest moon and thought all the games were great! And when I saw this game i was real exited as you can choose the sex of your character! So I bought the game, and was unfortunatley extremely disappointed! Even though the graphics are alot better as the game is 3D, the controls are stylus only and the game get really annoying as you often find yourself picking up wood and weeds that you don't want and discarding things that you need, these terrible...

Disappointing!

  • Summary: I loved the original Harvest Moon DS and have spent the past year glued to my console, so when I saw this new game, I was thrilled. You can play as a girl or a boy which is great, it has a good story line, being castaway on an island, you have to bring the island back to life, fab idea!!

  • Summary: I don't care much for this game, I own almost every Harvest Moon game dating back to the SNES. The problem with this game is the controls, if you can get past that it might be an ok game, but I just found it frustrating that everything is done with the stylus. If you even attempt to use the directional buttons to run or whatever chances are you'll chop into one of your animals with your sickle. The directional buttons are only used as short cut keys for your tools.

Harvest Moon

  • Summary: ************************************************************************* Harvest Moon - Die Sonnenscheininsel ************************************************************************* Ich habe schon das erste Harvest Moon für den Ds gespielt und finde die Reihe klasse und so habe ich mir auch pünktlich das Spiel bestellt als es neu herausgebracht wurde. Ich habe 35 Euro bezahlt worüber ich mich immer noch ärgere.
