Biggest Disappointment EVER!
10 November 2008
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.
Harvest Moon: Island of Happiness (DS): Farming through your DS
17 March 2010
Summary: Harvest Moon is a game were it sees you take over an old beaten up farm and restore it to its former glory. All of the Harvest moon games are generally the same whether it be that you take over the farm from your uncle or grandad and have the same sort of gameplay in each. In this particular one you start off by taking over the farm, naming it and generally finding out were everything is about the island such as the local shop were you can buy seeds and various items to...
Pros: Novelty factor and fun for a little while
Cons: Can get very repetitive and boring, controls aren't great and overpriced
Conclusion: Harvest Moon has been around for many years now and serves as a benchmark for the life simulator genre. Although farming sounds like an odd subject matter you are offered plenty to do than just farm crops. You have to smash rocks, cut up logs, take care of farm animals, go fishing, get married, extend your house and do plenty of dancing.
Conclusion: Rather disappointing this installment of harvest moon for many reasons, one being the dire touch screen controls, the original for the Ds had no control problems so why go to the effort of changing it? another disappointment is the painfully slow gameplay, harvest moon always has had slow gameplay, but this one is mind numbingly slow.
Summary: This is the weirdest HM game I ever played. I pick up my chicken, and it takes a zillion taps to get my character to put it down. It is ALL touch screen, you don't use a single button. The animals are cute and everything, but I really don't get this game.......Its a far cry from the previous Harvest Moon's, and I don't recommend you buy it.
Excerpt: ...Ecco un altro giochino che ho avuto modo di provare. Sinceramente non conoscevo nulla della serie di Harvest Moon e da questo capitolo Harvest Moon Grand Bazaar non sapevo bene cosa aspettarmi. Sinceramente l'idea che mi ero fatta era quella di un gioco a ...
