Reviewed by Tim Martin Harvest Moon is the ultimate farm simulation game that lets you decide the game. Your parents leave the farm in your hands and give you two and a half years to save the farm and turn it into a successful one. In Harvest Moon you farm, raise animals, get married, and can even have a kid! Through hard work and numerous hours of fun you can go from a farm full of weeds and tree stumps to a successful and money- making farm full of fields full of crops and barns full of animals!

Graphics 8 out of 10

The graphics in Harvest Moon are plain and easy to see. The crops and animals are all well drawn and are very neat and clear. The graphics are about average for a Super NES game, but they get the job done.

Music and Sound 10 out of 10

This may be a little high, because if you play the game for an extended amount of time the music gets annoying and repetitive, but for the most part the music is fairly entertaining and sets the mood well. There is different music for every different scene. For the most part, this music is great.

Game Challenge 7 out of 10

Harvest Moon is a game that is tough to calculate in difficulty. If you want to make the game hard you can, but if you wanna sleep walk through the game if can be easy. You can make the game hard if you want to farm, tend to animals, and have a wife. There is only a certain amount of hours in a day and you must be in by a certain time to keep your wife happy.

Game Play-Fun 9 out of 10

This game is very fun. For anyone who lives nowhere remotely close to a rural area this is an ultimate game to own to fulfil your farming calls. What makes this game fun is that you actually plant your crops, you actually water your crops, and you actually pick your crops. Everything you accomplish is on your own. You get more satisfaction knowing that you did it all and just didn't click a button to make it happen.

Rumble Pak 8 out of 10

Harvest Moon is unique because of the constrictions you must obey. Every action you do, like picking a plant or plowing a square of field you lose a certain amount of energy points. This wouldn't be so hard if there was a meter that you could look off of, but there isn't one, so you have to calculate the amount of energy you have left from little signs from your farmer. Every button on the controller has it's own action and the gameplay, like the rest of the game is crisp, and easy to learn.

Frustration

This game gets very frustrating if you don't wanna play the game. This is extremely long. You have to play 250 days which last about ten to fifteen minutes each depending on what you do. That multiplies to be about sixty hours. The game can get very repetitive and can get boring. As far as the game getting frustrating because you can't win, there isn't much of that. This game is long and if you are not dedicated to playing the game, you probably will quit.

Replayability 10 out of 10

There are so many ways to play Harvest Moon. You can play and play for money, you can play and play to have a wonderful family life, or you can play just to have fun. There are so many ways to play this game. There may be only a couple of endings, but the way you get there is the fun. The Replay factor is great. You can beat this game numerous times and still be coming back for more.

Game Value 8 out of 10

Pending on how much you can get this game for, is what the game value is. If you can get the game for around 30 to 35 dollars consider that a deal. If you have to pay anymore for that, you may be a tad disappointed. I mean, if you pay fifty dollars for the game, you might not like it because of how long it is. You should rent the game first and then decide if you wanna buy the game. I think if you like the game fifty dollars then really isn't so bad. I've seen the game for around sixty dollars brand new, but i have seen the game used for only around twenty, so if you look you should be able to find a good deal.

Features 6 out of 10

There are many cool features in this game. You can go to many festivals and pick berries and cut down trees late into the night. Besides just farming there is a lot of stuff to do.

Ending 5 out of 10

The ending is nothing to complain about, but it is not great. I don't wanna spoil the ending so I won't go in depth. They basically just give you some ratings and happiness scores.

Overall 90 out of 100

Harvest Moon is a great game and you should play it.
