    This is probably the best game I have ever played in the Game Boy Advance.The game is really addicting and you are likely to play this game all day and everyday.Harvest Moon is a game that will teach you why being a farmer is good.In this game you are in a town called"Mineral Town"and your job there is to take care of the farm in the town.You can plant vegetables or fruits and you can also take care poultry animals like cows and chicken.There is also this part in the game when you don't water your plants and feed your animals they are likely to die.The game feels realistic.

    Harvest Moon is a great game and it gets a 10/10!Harvest Moon is one of the best game ever made for the Game Boy and we will all remember this game.That is why I recommend you kids to buy this game because this game is for you.The game is Legendary and I love this game.

    The best Harvest Moon game (perhaps even GBA game) ever. This game is incredible, it's gorgeous and the controls are excellent, the town feels alive, NPCs have daily & weekly schedules and birthdays. There is so much content, so many secrets, so much to unlock. Simple yet complex, if you appreciate deep gameplay with many nuanced layers, then look no further.

    THis game is sweet its so stinking addicting too. Ive got 1,800,000( a ton of money) been married for 6 years and have 10 cows, 6 sheep, 8 chickens, and a 5 year old son. and i have all upgrades from the woodcutter except the townhouse. i also have all the powerberries and almost all animals have 10 hearts. im working on getting the teleport stone and the jewel of truth i already have 5 or 6 of the stones for it. Well to sum it up this has got to be the best harvest moon game ever id give it an 11 if i could. :) Collapse

  1. The game is so diverse that it'd take months, maybe years, to see everything.
  2. If an upgraded hammer, that simply allows you to break bigger rocks, is reward enough to get you through another bleak winter's day, then buy this. You truly have what it takes to be a hoary-handed son of the soil.
  3. As you can probably imagine, gameplay can be tedious, but the title does a good job of changing things up and adding new elements to the mix. [Dec 2003, p.187]
