Summary: Played this as a kid, or around 16, and thought it was different, relaxing and enjoyable. There's no other game like it and there was a sense of longevity that was rare with most other games. I picked this up again recently to rekindle some fond memories of the game and teh truth is, it hasn't aged particularly well. The graphics are obviously dated (thats a given) but the world seems small, uninteractive and basically a bit underwhelming.
Summary: If your a fan of previous games in the Harvest Moon series you will be completely and utterly disappointed at this poor imitation. If you do enjoy wasting hard earned cash there are better causes to give it to. You get married too quickly, if you don't bother talking to the very few girls in the VERY SMALL village then the game will make you marry automatically anyway. Why bother?

Summary: Why have they done this to harvest moon. they have completely and uterly destroyed the originals they should have built on. Where are the festivals to livin the game play up, oh yes i remember it's going to watch somebody play a very bad song on the guitar, twice a year. Where are the huge barns to house your 40 cows and sheep. where are the challenges of earning your bigger rucksack, your basket, and more importantly the difficult job of raising your horse.
Summary: Being a fan of the others, i bought this. There are several things that are not good additions to this game. Firstly, cows only give milk for a year, then u have to get them pregnant, which takes like a year for them to give birth before they give milk again. Secondly, wheres the traditional shipping box??? U can only sell milk produce and eggs through the shipping box. u have to sell the crops you grow elsewhere.
