Harvest Moon: Boy & Girl review
28 September 2007
Excerpt: Harvest Moon: Boy & Girl is a bundle of two games--Harvest Moon: Back to Nature and the previously unreleased-in-the-US Harvest Moon for Girls, both badly ported from the PS1. Except for minor differences, most notably the protagonist's gender, they're actually the same game. Though this is a direct port of a pair of games that are roughly seven years old, the series has gone out of its way to evolve as little as possible over time, and as a result the simple yet...
Pros: Ridiculously simple gameplay makes it easy to pick up and go, Large number of nonfarming tasks to enjoy
Cons: Tedious, repetitive tasks make playing a chore, Poor porting job introduces technical issues, Stretched aspect ratio looks awkward, and the framed alternative is even more so
Excerpt: Of course I am referring to the cult classic PSOne Harvest Moon, Harvest Moon : Back to Nature. The only PSOne version of Harvest Moon as far as I know, it is the essential Harvest Moon without a shadow of a doubt. Set in the town of Mineral Town, it has one of the most colorful histories of the franchise as well as being part of the first attempts to work a female lead into the game franchise.
