Summary: I thought this would be pretty easy I have played plenty of farming games on the ds (Harvest Moon) but this is harder then you think! I still like it though it has many things you haven't seen on the other games, such as cutting your own meat...now THAT is different! I think this game is for people who have the patience to take the time and learn how to get around. All in all a great buy.
Summary: First of all, I'm a big fan of the Harvestmoon games for the Wii, DS, PS2, and Gamecube. So I'll give my honest, and unbiased opinion about SC 2. Here's a list of the things I liked about the game. 1. You can advance time by pressing the L button, when you're bored and have nothing to do. 2. You don't have to water your crops, it's done automatically. 3. No need to sleep, your character boy or girl, never sleeps. Just move on to the next day. 4.
Summary: Though the tasks in this game are very simple the game overall can be very involved. Definitely have to do some thinking and planning but very fun if you don't mind starting over a few times. The instructions are ok - but you really have to pay attention to the dialogue with the NPC's as they give you clues to what you need to do be successful. Drop hints that you have to file away for later. Most everything has a use so you should be careful about what you sell.
Summary: We live on a farm (goats, chickens, cows, and garden). There is not much to do during the winter, so my kids enjoyed this farming game during the long months of snow. However, my 11 year old daughter pointed out that unlike the game suggests, chickens don't come into heat.
Summary: I loved playing this game, got soo addicted to it with all that you can do, but once you've done everything and aquired all the land and home expansions, it ends quick. I wish the game would have let you talk to the people and interact more. But, it was a lot of fun and I do recommend it.
Summary: First off, it is NOT Harvest Moon. You don't develop relationships with people at all. You make a dish and visit someone once and move on. The marriage system isn't complex and I love it this way. This game is all about the survival of your character and the things you decide to do on the land given to you. You don't water, woo, or talk to people. You trow out seeds on a plot of land, raise animals, harvest, sell, and slaughter as needed.
Took a while to get into it, but was extreamly fun.

Summary: It did take a while to get used to the controls and at times it is hard to remember them, I am so used to the Harvest moon games. But once I figured it out, it is fun. Days go by quickly though, and you can't run around the village although you can visit people, just their homes and in a cut scene. Good game, but not as great as Harvest Moon.
Summary: I've been a hardcore player of the Harvest Moon series for years, and recently discovered the original Shepeherd's Crossing for the PSP. While it was interesting and more realistic than Harvest Moon, I felt that it had a lot of issues that made me want to put the game down and replay an old Harvest Moon title. The original Shepherd's Crossing had a lot of problems. You couldn't enter your house. You couldn't store any of your crops, food, tools, or supplies anywhere.
