Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility Review

Cheat Code Central
4 December 2009
  • Conclusion: Harvest Moon has been a staple Nintendo franchise for a decade now, and at first glance it is easy to see why. The farm-simulation game is instantly charming and its task-based gameplay appeals to both the casual and hardcore sect. Harvest Moon is always fun and always engaging, but as the years go by and more and more iterations of this classic franchise are released, it becomes more apparent that it is always the same.

  • Summary: As part of its 10-year anniversary celebration, Natsume has released two new Harvest Moon games, one for the Wii and another for the DS. The Wii game is the first for the console, and though the subtitle implies that it is a new game, a number of issues--recycled gameplay, low-quality sound effects, poor camera control--make it feel old. There's a lot of content here, but not much of it is new.
  • Pros: Core farming mechanics are still fun, Massive number of things to participate in and take care of
  • Cons: Frequent loading screens slow the pace, Motion controls are uninspired, Slowdown comes with every rainy day

Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility review

Gameplanet
23 November 2009
  • Excerpt: Basically the same old Harvest Moon formula with a few new features, but a pleasant little diversion from the pressures and pace of real life - and good value for money.
  • Pros: The Wii remote lends a real ‘hands-on’ feel to some of the activities; simple to get into and still addictive as ever.
  • Cons: Camera angles are sometimes awkward; load times are frequent and lengthy

Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility [Wii] Review

  • Excerpt: Firstly, I have to clear up the fact that while I am familiar with the Harvest Moon series and have heard much about its role playing greatness, I have never actually played it in any form. I have played similar games, and they are just my cup of tea, so I’m hoping that this experience is as sweet as I expect it to be. The first thing you will notice about the game is its long but charming introduction.
  • Pros: Character interaction and social aspect is good, Visually pleasing, You want to keep playing to find out what happens in your next “day”
  • Cons: Controls are too sensitive at times, Too little focus on the main storyline, Some parts of the game are slow to load, interrupting game play

  • Excerpt: Take a deep breath. Smell that? That's the smell of a fresh new Harvest Moon game out on it's latest console (the Nintendo Wii). Sure, with the notable exception of Microsoft Xbox (original and 360) and the next gen PS3 of the present day console/handheld producers that are Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony Harvest Moon's been on just about every past, present and "next gen" (which should be now considered "present gen" since haven't we had the systems long enough for them to...

  • Summary: Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility is in de kern geen slechte game, maar weet door een belabberde presentatie en zwakke afwerking slechts gedeeltelijk te plezieren. De nostalgische momenten waren desondanks aanwezig, al gaven mij deze eerder de neiging om een oudere versie van Harvest Moon op te starten. Als nieuwkomer raad ik aan om ver uit te buurt te blijven van deze game.

  • Conclusion: Tree of Tranquility is een spel dat niet voor iedereen is weggelegd en bovendien een hoop kleine foutjes kent die het speelplezier drastisch verminderen. Laadtijden, een gemis aan gesproken teksten, gameplay die in herhaling dreigt te vallen en de besturing zijn hier enkele zwaar tellende voorbeelden van. Wanneer je echter wat doorzettingsvermogen toont en in een lekker ritme raakt, is er veel plezier uit de immense spelwereld te halen.
  • Pros: Grote spelwereld, Veel te doen, De boer op gaan is leuk
  • Cons: Veel en lange laadtijden, Grafisch weinig indrukwekkend, Doorzettingsvermogen nodig in beginfase, Herhaling ligt op de loer

  • Conclusion: I Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility er det muligt at vælge køn, og som ung lovende gårdsherre/frue har man sat sig for at rejse til Waffle Island, et grønt paradis med gode muligheder for livet på landet. Ved ankomsten viser det sig dog, at økonomien er i bund, ikke på grund af Lehman Brothers, men fordi et helligt træ er visnet. Samtidig er der stadig dine drømme om en mystiske grønklædt kvinde som beder dig om hjælp.
  • Pros: Kernemekanikken virker. God stemning. Fin musik.
  • Cons: Minimal innovation. 480i billede. Et par forfædelige lydoptagelser. Lange og hyppige loadtider.

  • Conclusion: Potatisen är satt, korna är mjölkade och hunden är klappad. För fjärde gången i ordningen börjar jag känna mig klar med ett Harvest Moon-spel. Spelserien har legat mig varmt om hjärtat. För mig började förälskelsen på Super Nintendo, intensifierades på Game Boy Advance och fick en törn på Nintendo DS. Efter att ha spelat Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility till Wii har kärleken fått sig en sista nådastöt .
  • Pros: Massor att göra
  • Cons: Omständig styrning, jobbiga laddningstider, undermålig grafik, tråkigt ljud, ful design
