Review: Harvest Moon 3D: The Tale of Two Towns (Nintendo 3DS)
18 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.
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...
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
Conclusion: As a new farmer to the area, players choose which village to live in.
Will it be Eastern-styled Konohana with its abundant fields of crops, or the animal-loving, European-styled Bluebell? Players will pick a home, build a thriving farm, and compete in a huge variety of festivals.
Conclusion: Ibland måste man som inbiten spelare ta ett steg tillbaka från krigssimulatorer, virtuella hockeykarriärer och bloddrypande källargångar och ägna sig åt något mer meditativt. Kanske snurra på lite ryska klossar, eller varför inte komma i kontakt med sin inre bonde via Harvest Moon?
Pros: Stämningsfullt, räcker länge, märkligt belönande, tar fram den inre bonden
Cons: Saknar tempovariation, aningen föråldrat, tjatiga och meningslösa dialoger
