Review: Harvest Moon 3D: The Tale of Two Towns (Nintendo 3DS)
15 March 2012
Summary: : Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns is exactly what it seems like at first glance: a cute Harvest Moon game with some changes here and there that will appeal to fans and engage newcomers, but won’t convince burnouts to come back around. The feuding towns concept is cute and the characters are engaging enough to carry the game along, and while the game isn’t a technical marvel and the 3D isn’t stellar, the visuals and audio are charming enough to sell the game all in...
Summary: Parents need to know that Harvest Moon: Tale of Two Towns is the latest entry in the successful and long-running Harvest Moon franchise. Players take on the role of an ambitious young farmer who moves into a new village and must work hard to cultivate crops, take care of animals, and soak in the local color.
Pros: A great new bulletin board system to keep you busy, As addictive and adorable as always, Plenty to do across both towns and between, Some of the best graphics in the series, The two towns provide a very different backdrop from series norm
Cons: 3D has some strange effects sometimes, Hiking between towns can be a chore at the start, Occasional glitch freezes the game until you reset the console, Some of the old chore annoyances have returned
