Excerpt: Natsume's Harvest Moon series is one of the greatest long-running anomalies in video games today. Despite being a series of farming role-playing games that offer pretty modest improvements from game to game, and with almost no marketing muscle behind it, Harvest Moon has garnered a fairly large and fiercely loyal following.
Excerpt: This newly released Game Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life is back on GameCube. (Also released for GBA.) In this Game you`re a farmer which when you first start the Game you start with one Cow which Takakura gives you your first Cow. The farm has been past down to you to look after and produce Crops and breed Animals. In the Game there are 4 seasons, known as Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter.
Conclusion: This instalment of the series is probably the epitome of the franchise; its fun, endearing and highly addictive. The only drawback is that newbies to the series may flounder and find it hard to regain interest if they fail at the start, due to the game’s lack of assistance. Still, those that keep at it will discover the wonder of the franchise, and what is really one of the deepest role-playing/sim experiences available today.
