Summary: This is the first game in the River King series that I have played. I finally decided it was time to give it a try since I enjoy the Harvest Moon/Rune Factory/Animal Crossing games and had heard the River King games were well liked among fans of those games. I have not been disappointed. River King Mystic Valley is a simple game yet very fun to play.
Summary: Putting the word ‘harvest’ in front of any game revolving in the slightest towards the farming culture has paid off for games in the past. Harvest Fishing tells the unlikely tale of a young boy, whose sister has fallen into a comatose sleep, even if they can still communicate. His goal is to become a worldly renowned fisherman by only using a fishing rod, instead of professional equipment.
Summary: I had the original River King game on the Gameboy and I enjoyed it a good bit, so when I saw that they made a River King game for the DS I was thrilled. As far as I can tell it's a remake. The story is the same for the most part, but the controls and playability are head and shoulders above the original, and the addition of pets is an awesome step forward. The only thing this doesn't have is the combat instances, instead you get SP (Skill Points) by fishing.
Summary: My 6 year old son is a fishing fanatic and a very good video game player so we were looking for games for the DS since most fishing games are for the big consoles. We got this one and like most of the reviews it is just ok. It is pretty complicated play, and not pure fishing. The kids aren't wowed by the graphics. I would only get it on a trade-in or sale defintely not full price.
Summary: River King Mystic Valley is a fun and addictive game for the Nintendo DS. You play a boy who must find a very rare fish called the "River King" in order to save his sister from a deep,deep sleep. In the game you meet three different "monster children": A racoon, a fox and a crow. They all help you with their special abilities (Rock breaking, healing, flying).
Good use of the DS hardware, still same basic game

Summary: Just like the rest of the River King games, you're sent on a quest to catch the River King to solve some problem with a family member (this time your sister refuses to wake up). It's just like the preceding games: catch fish, buy more bait, catch more fish, buy more bait, upgrade rods, etc. There are a few new twists, though. This time you get points for each fish you catch, you don't sell them, and trade these points for equipment.
Summary: I have only played some of this game-have other games on the go. I decided to buy this game as I had not seen it before. I am no good at fishing in Animal Crossing but seem to be better with this game. Took a while to get into and missed a few clues to start with but am enjoying it. It is about a young boy whose sister will not wake up and he must find the River King, the biggest fish in the area to find a solution to waking her up.
