A Tale of Improvement

RPGamer
6 November 2011
  • Excerpt: After last year's disappointment of Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar , I was starting to give up on my favourite little farming franchise. The game had left such a sour taste in my mouth that not even a cold glass of Jersey milk could cure my dissatisfaction.

A Place Called Home

RPGamer
16 July 2010
  • Excerpt: Here at RPGamer, Harvest Moon reviews have been relatively non-existent in recent years. They are games that are difficult to complete and they require that special someone who has loads of patience to give them the attention they rightfully need. Having been a huge Harvest Moon fan for years, I can say that this series has been largely one I like to relax to.

Chickens! Carrots! Cows!

  • Excerpt: At first glance, a game based off of farming would seem like a peculiar concept. While sim games have tried this before, never has it been used in an RPG-style setting. The Harvest Moon series began on the Super Nintendo, but did not grow to popularity until later, having releases on the N64, Game Boy, and Game Boy Color systems. On the PlayStation, the series continued with Harvest Moon: Back To Nature which went on to be a popular title.

Do, Re, Mi (Chicken, Cow, Sheep)

  • Excerpt: Though not as well known as some other, more popular RPG series, there are almost as many Harvest Moon games as there are Final Fantasy titles, and it outnumbers the Zelda franchise. So why are more people saving the world instead of farming? It is likely a question which has no answer, but there is a simple answer as to whether the newest iteration, Harvest Moon: Magical Melody , is a solid addition to the series, and the answer is thankfully a "yes.

Harvest Moon: Frantic Farming - NDS - Review

GameZone
28 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Farming is anything but a frantic process. It requires the patience of a snail and progresses just as fast. Think about it — denim suspenders, boots and straw hats aren’t exactly an ideal wardrobe for frenzied, “frantic” activities. Perhaps this game should’ve been titled Harvest Moon: Oxymoron. Grammar aside, the long-running farming-simulation series has harvested another winner with Frantic Farming, but this crop isn’t at all what you might expect.

Harvest Moon: Frantic Farming

25 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Frantic Farming is a Harvest Moon game in title only, because with this specific entry the franchise has officially branched out (pun intended) into the puzzle genre.

Harvest Moon (SNES)

The Review Busters
23 March 2009
  • Conclusion: Harvest Moon started the whole farming simulator genre, which really hasn’t exploded even to this gay. The game is real fun and easy to play; kids and adults can pick this game up and play it with no worries. Trying to find this game for your SNES might be a little hard so your best bet is to buy it on your Virtual Console. For only eight dollars you can enjoy this game, the simple game play is really enjoyable.

Expert Review

18 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Harvest Moon has appeared on numerous systems, including the Gameboy Color, PlayStation, Nintendo 64 and a recent “side story” on the PlayStation 2. Farmer Fantasy (AKA Harvest Moon) is back, tilling ahead on its native GBC soil. Much like a new title in a sports franchise series, Harvest Moon 3 isn't rewriting the series and changing the basics of gameplay, instead it is adding layers and layers of new depth to the traditional formula.
