Summary: Well this game is really nice. I bought this for my little brother as a Christmas present but now I am hooked up as well:p highly addictive. Though there are a few annoying things, like the loading screens, but is nothing to worry about. The plot is very fun and very easy to play.
Summary: It is a very fun game to play if you like Harvest Moon series. Actually I like the story plot intertwined with the routine game play. It gave me a purpose, a goal to accomplish besides everyday farm work. The reason I didn't give it five stat is that there are two small aspects that I don't like: 1) Time passes too fast in the game; 2) It is really hard to get 10 hearts with town people and wild animals. Besides these, it is a really good Harvest Moon game for Wii.
Summary: All of the other reviews that I've read are from Harvest Moon veteran players. I'm a newbie so here's a review from someone who has never played any of the earlier versions. HM has been around for 10 years (on different consoles obviously) and this is their 10th anniversary version. This is the first version made exclusively for the Wii. HM is a farming sim game where you are a new arrival to a large enchanted island with hopes of becoming a rancher.
Summary: I do have to agree with the first reviewer about it being incredibly annoying when your person runs out of stamina too quickly. One or two chops with the axe and it's lights out! I'm sure that will change though. Your character is supposed to get stronger the more work you do. All of the other aspects of this game are great! They blow the other harvest moons out of the water for me! A mine with level after level to explore and a ton of places to go.
Summary: All in all, this is a pretty fantastic iteration of Harvest Moon. It combines the more dramatic, realistic setting and graphics of A Wonderful Life with the more childlike and cutesy feeling of Magical Melody and Harvest Moon 64 (still my gold standard after all these years). I haven't played it a whole lot yet (I just got it last night, after all) but I can tell it's going to get plenty of play at my house. I already love the look of the game.
Summary: I borrowed this game from a friend, I liked it so much that I decided to buy it. I was disapoibted to find after I did though, there is a newer game with the same characters called Animal Parade. This is still a great game though.
Summary: I've played other harvest moon games previous to this and this one adds a lot more features and options. The only negative thing in my opinion is that the camera view is fixed in one direction. Other than that, good game!
