Harvest Moon

Get the game at Amazon.com!

Reviewed by Jay Dolan Harvest Moon is one of the most oddball games to be called a role playing game. You are to take the role of young man who is going to get rich off of his Grandfathers old farm. And in no way is it simple. You have to clear the land, take care of livestock, get married, and have kids. Farm life has never been more complex

Graphics 7 out of 10

The graphics of Harvest Moon are very suitable for the game. Though not up to the potential Super Nintendo has, the graphics are colorful, cute, and over-all good looking. Though extremely simple, these graphics provide lots of humor such as the Pregnant cow (who waddles when she walks). There are some flaws though. I still can't distinguish a yellow flower from a cave herb

Music and Sound 10 out of 10

I personally feel the music for Harvest Moon is well suited and fits the food of the game. Every area and time of year has it's own different tune, like the hussle-bustle song of the summer, the relaxing song of the mountains, and the simple pleasures of town life. With each season the music is very suitable, such as the gloomy winter music and the hustled summer music as I mentioned before.

Game Challenge 9 out of 10

The games tutorial makes the simple farm life seem simple. Clear the land, plow it, plant your seeds, then water them until the plants grow. This is not what it seems. Each day in the game is under 3 minutes, you have to constantly hold the B button to run around. And the way you plow depends on what watering tool you have. Getting a wife is also hard. Love can't be forced, and it requires time and patience to work at with the girl you love. Dating eats away a lot of time, and so does wood chopping and animal feeding. The game makes you want to see if you can handle 20 plots of land to water daily and harvest.

Game Play-Fun 8 out of 10

There are many simple joys of the game. Your first crop, your first cow, getting married and having kids. Some parts are hilarious too. You're wife has your children in your bed, and you sleep in the next night. There are also festivals to attend and lots of other stuff. The fun if the game really shines when you have a routine and then totally break it to go on a date.

Frustration

It's there. Powering up tools is often once in a life time. Dating certain girls and getting married is near to impossible. Reaching the secret ending requires you to do a list of unhealthy chores. Your thumb will have a calice on it from constantly hold down the B button. Coming home after 8 when your married is considered the worst thing you could ever do

Replayability 6 out of 10

Though there are many different ways to end the game, they aren't really big. There is a super secret ending which you could try for, but it's next to impossible.

Game Value 5 out of 10

It really just depends if you're willing to try something totally new and have fun with it...

Overall 7 out of 10
