Summary: I am a huge fan of farming games, but this one wasn't good. You can't place the crops where you want. the "Fields" are little bare circles on different islands that you wave a wand at to plant random crops(depending on what monsters you catch and send to the island.
Summary: I really enjoyed the Harvest Moon games, and was looking for something a bit more "grown-up". I read other reviews before I bought it. Perhaps I'm just not a "gamer," but I've been playing this game for over 3 hours total now and I have yet to DO something for myself.
