To little reward for the work you put in.
26 December 2014
Summary: This game was very time consuming for the little reward you get. If I had endless hours to plays games. I still wouldn't buy a harvest moon game. I only played this game maybe twice and I had had enough. If you have time to put to a game like this is a great game for you. Have fun!
Summary: I didn't like this game very much, and mostly because of the mechanics of it. I feel like it used the touch screen TOO much. I didn't want to use the stylus to move my character around. I honestly did not play very much of it at all because I was so turned off by the mechanics. I traded it in at my local game store for something else.
Summary: Thid game is exteremly hard. It takes forever to get enough money for anything. MONEY: Money takes a while to get I am in fall of my 1st year and havv only bought a animal shed and a bridge to the medow, were the contest are. crops early in the game raise only small income because of stamina conserns. For peaople who think you can earn money byt minning in the begenning of the game, you cant. The secend bridge unlocks it but cost a ton of money.
Summary: I have literally played EVERY Harvest Moon video game ever made. And I have LOVED them all. Until, that is, Island of Happiness came out for the Ninetendo DS. I hurried out and purchased it the very same day it went on sale in the stores, rushed home, and eagerly opened the game to start playing. What a MAJOR disappointment. It was so bad, that I will not waste another second of time on that game which is hard for me to say.
Summary: Out of all the harvest moon games, this was the least enjoyable. First time players might find it more difficult than fun, and experienced HM players might tire of it quickly (I know I did). CONTROLS The biggest problem with the game is the control system. Nintendo is very gun-ho about it's touchscreen and it shows in this game. Everything you do is controlled via touchscreen and it's very frustrating.
Summary: I have been waiting for this game to come out for many many months. After numerous setbacks with the release dates I was very excited when it finally arrived on my doorstep last week. Once I started the game however I was sorely disappointed to find out the game only allows your character to move around via the "Stylus" and the d-pad works like the button pad. I am all for implementing the use of the Stylus in DS games, but it should be an option...not a requirement.
Excerpt: Anybody who knows me knows that I have long been 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.
Pros: . . . It isn't raining outside at time of writing
