One of the best

  • Summary: I am not too far along yet but having played most of the older games I like the additions that I see. I find the sprite enchantment thing a little confusing, but can see how it would really help when you get further along

  • Summary: My niece requested this game on her Christmas List. She was thrilled to receive it and said it was a lot of fun, as she expected. The price was great as well! It beat Target's price, which was the store from which I was going to buy!

  • Summary: It's a bit difficult to figure out, but I love the harvest moon games. It just takes a while to get into. I would recommend it for older children, definitely.

Best Harvest Moon for the DS so far.

  • Summary: Sunshine Islands is a redo of Island of Happiness, with a different map but mostly the same people. It has the same amount of stylus controls, but it also allows you to use the d-pad and buttons instead, unlike Island of Happiness. It is also easier to successfully grow crops. You don't get your objective until Spring 10, so for the first ten days you run around without any goals. The menus are informative but look rushed.

Better than Island of Happiness

  • Summary: My opinion is biased, as I've played just about every one of these games. Pen tool- Unlike Island of Happiness, you aren't bound to the pen, which was annoying. BUT! You have to switch in and out of it, and once you're used to how it works in IoH, it seems sort of pointless. Otherwise, it's almost the same game, just with more stuff and without the trouble of having to find every single person (that was a good experiment, bad in practice) and they give you wheat and rice...

A cute game, but one that takes patience

Amazon

  • Summary: As I'm sure most who read this review know, Harvest Moon is a series that is over a decade old and spans plenty of platforms(mostly older ones). It has a strong fanbase, but the games aren't too hard to get into for newbies. However, before I continue, those of you who like instant gratification and/or dislike repetition would do well to stay away. Basically, you start out with a plot of land that is covered with weeds, rocks and logs.

Way better than Island of Happiness!

Amazon

  • Summary: This game is so much better than Island of Happiness. You collet sunstones to raise special islands that unlock characters. [mushroom island, animal island, volcano island, etc.] You get sunstones by befriending villagers and earning their trust. A nice feature is that livestock comes in different colors- Chickens: Black, White Cows: Black & White, Brown & White Sheep: White, Brown Same with pets Dog: light brown & white, dark brown & white Cat: black & white, white Pig:...
