  • Summary: Live the simple life in quaint Forget-Me-Not Valley in Harvest Moon: Another Wonderful Life. This game is similar to the original Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life, but now you can play as a girl who has left the city to pursue a life on the farm. You'll take part in growing crops, managing livestock, finding a husband, and raising children. The game contains six chapters that span your life and reflect the decisions that you have made along the way. Expand

  1. While nothing major has been modified, the game as a whole was good enough not to really need much fixing, except for a few minor tweaks with the interface. The game was fun two years ago, and is thoroughly enjoyable today.
  2. Aside from the fact that you play as a female character, life on the farm hasn't changed much, but Another Wonderful Life does bring to light a whole new side of the familiar characters from Forget-Me-Not Valley that fans of the series are sure to enjoy.
  3. This "expansion" is definitely more of a twist on a theme rather then an entirely new game, but it contains all of the charm of the previous games. The cartoony graphics are sure to please and the low-level existence is a nice change of pace from all of the gang violence and car racing that permeates most video games these days.
  4. The remake has some minor improvements, including the ability to continue playing from where the previous game ended. [Sept 2005, p.83]
  5. Takes you deep into farming activities and offers a compelling game experience as a result. The number of choices you can make and activities you can take part in are nearly endless, despite the game's basic presentation.
  6. 60
    Farming's hard, tedious, repetitive work. And don't let anyone tell you different.

    I give it a 10 because I love this game I own harvest moon the guy one and I personally like this one better, and it's not because I'm a girl or anything. I like it because there are some different features. I also like it because you can change your clothes! Expand

    I find this game extremely boring, like all the others. I don't like Animal Crossing very much but I still own it anyway. This game is like AC with less to do. Ugh. Collapse
