A Harvest Moon Clone, gone in reverse

Summary: Let me first say that I played SC on the DS and PS2, so I know what this game is about. All 3 games are the same. You start off on a abandoned farm and you plant different crops and raise various animals. There is no getting married in this game. It's nothing like Harvest Moon, after playing the DS version, I got bored of the game and eventually sold it on Amazon.It just doesn't hold my interest at all, gameplay is dull, you won't feel like playing it again for a long...
Summary: This is highly flawed game but I used to play the PS2 version on my PS3 and I was interested in playing again. First off this is exactly the same as the PS2 version. I was hopeful this one would be a little different or at least they would have fixed some of the bugs but unfortunately it's the same game just a different format. With a little effort this game could have been a lot of fun.
Summary: After reading the reviews, I thought that this game would be really fun. I have played Harvest Moon as well, and I enjoyed the farming and ranching aspects as well as the characters. When I read that this game was similar in ways but different in others, I decided to give it a try. As soon as it arrived in the mail, I immediately played it. I kept at it for a few hours, but I didn't enjoy it much.
Summary: I read the review above and got so excited when I heard that Shepherd's Crossing was like Viva Pinata which I love! I'm not finding it much like Viva Pinata. Though there is a lot of text it doesn't really teach you much as far as a tutorial or how to play the game. I had to blindly try all sorts of things that didn't do anything before I figured out a little bit how to play it.
Cute, heartwarming game that has many hours of gameplay.

Summary: Shepherd's Crossing for the PSP is a port and big improvement over the PS2 version. This game is NOT Harvest Moon. It's not trying to be. It is a farm simulation, yes, but at its heart this game is a trading simulation and a raising simulation that is much closer to Viva Pinata. You have one large area for your farm that will expand as the game progresses, and you start out raising small animals and grass.
Summary: After about an hour into the game, I got bored of it. It seemed very restrictive without much chance for any exploration. Leaving the farm only brings you to a trade menu which is somewhat cluttered. The whole trade system can be a little hard to grasp and the farm itself which you spend the most time on is kind of small and hard to organize. A harvest moon clone the got it wrong.
