It's wonderful and entertaining though it does take forever I still enjoy playing the game. This is my first Harvest Moon but I think after this I might buy the rest. ^^

I rented it because my friend said it was the best game he had ever played. So I played it and it was soo fun getting to have my one farm and all. When I gave it back, I had to have it, so I saved up my money and ordered it. It's on its way from Texas because everybody loves it, I live in Utah. I have not got a baby yet but my wife has to move in first. I well name my baby Carson.:)

This game is a fantastic game. I don't have it yet, but in 2-4 weeks, for sure!!! I'm a Harvest Moon Fan, so I like it, and I don't care about too big faces or eyes, but somebody does it, here in Germany. He says: 'I thought I become crazy, because I saw this faces and eyes, which were too big...' That was a crazy person! I hope there are more HM Fans like me in this world. Sorry I wrote too much I know. OK Bye Bye (I'm from Germany and I can speak English! Wow!)^^

It is so cool I am only in the 2nd chapter but it's so exciting. I lost Harvest Moon Friends of Mineral Town, so sad, but when I saw this in the shops I just had to have it and I'm glad I did.

This game is really fun, yet it should have more things to do. And it takes sssoooooooo long for a cow to have a calf. I gave her the mp in fall year 1 and its summer year 2 and I'm still waiting.

For fans of the Harvest Moon series, this game is a treat. While the series has been in 2D (except Save The Homeland) the 3D experience this Harvest Moon game has to offer is unique. While you can no longer upgrade your house (well it does get bigger every chapter but it's not the same) there is a lot more interactiveness. People who are addicted to the 2D approach might not appreciate the new 3D style and changes present with this style but it will stil appeal to the normal Havest Moon fan. People who haven't played the series before should be able to enjoy this game as well, offering a unique experience from other games. While it may seem slow it is a great game, if you are unsure rent it first.
