Summary: Yes, this game is one of the most pointless games ever. I bought it for childhood nostalgia value. Now let's be real, getting a wife, fishing, and building up ones farm can be pretty fun in Harvest Moon but after you get over that point you begin to think "what's next?". The scenery is great! but the camera is permanently focused on the ground so you can't enjoy it! The music is changeable, but the few songs still all get stale. Don't sell your cow!
Summary: The game runs clunky and I swear it runs at only 40 frames a second. Last time I played a game that gave me a headache and caused nausea after 2 or 3 hrs. I discovered it was runnnig at 40 fps. I even timed the in-game day clock and it runs twice as fast as two psp harvest moons I am currently playing (harvest moon boy and girl and harvest moon hero of leaf valley, now those I recommmed whole heartedly - awesome:)).

Summary: i first got into harvest moon when looking any vampire snes games for my emulator and saw the title harvest moon, now in vampire mind met i thought something compleatly differnt. it turned out to be one of the dumest games i ever played but chould not stop. it became a lot of fun for me. the back to natuer added 1000% more fun, more real, able to make sprites do slave work, and the girls to woo are interasting.
Summary: well it looks like ps2 messed this game up bigtime... the reviews here dont lie... all the game does everytime you "open a door" is load... i got the verry same game on gamecube and it is waaay better than this peace of junk! dont waste your money!
Summary: I've been an avid fan of the HM series ever since I first played the first SNES one, what, ten years ago? They're all very addicting, except this one. I thought this would be an excellent game, but I simply cannot get into it. Because, during the time that the game isn't LOADING, all movement is soooo sloooooooowwwwwwww. The scenery is at least.. slightly pretty? Not really. Everything looks so dingy, the colours have barely any saturation.
Summary: ok, i don't think i'm an "action junkie." i like the sims 2, i don't play halo 2. but this game is sloooooooooooow. after a few minutes, i was sick of it. also, no real tutorial to tell you what to do. you just wake up in a room, with a cow milker in your inventory. oh yay, i can go milk a cow!!! that right there is the pinnacle of gaming entertainment, my friends (sarcasm).
Summary: Being a great harvest moon fan with her brand new PS2, I wanted a harvest moon game. I had played Back to Nature, 64, harvest moon 2, and so on. I brought the game for 10 bucks down at the mall. I couldn't wait to try it out! The first few days I played it were fun, don't get me wrong, but I was more looking forward to a game like Harvest moon 64. A free-form game that yes, would have a side-quest or two. I was in for a BIG surprise.
Summary: Listen very carefully! This game only lasts one year, and the days are really short. The town is small, but to me that's not good.You can't get married in this game. half of the game is loading. I bought this game after I heard a review close to this, and now I regret buying it. Listen to me, if you want a harvest moon game, get A Wonderful Life, and they even have a special edition for PS2. The graphics in that game are a little better.
Summary: I absolutely love RPG games. I have purchased the Harvest Moon: Back To Nature game for PSOne and that is FAR better than this game. When I saw that the Harvest Moon series took a step further, I purchased this game. One of the worst mistakes of my life. Yes - that may sound harsh - but it is true. Harvest Moon: Save The Homeland is amazingly short. The days fly by - even when you do part time work at the neighbouring farm.
