  1. Persistence is one thing that Magical Melody does reward - both materially and spiritually. [June 2006, p.22]
  2. So many aspects have improved from the previous "Harvest Moon" games, and Magical Melody exhibits such remarkable production quality, that the time it's taken Natsume has obviously been well spent. [May 2006, p.89]
  3. Repetition presides, but the amount of things you can do keep you coming back. The controls are very simple and they only encourage you to play more because it is so easy to handle.

    I love this Harvest Moon game. I think all the gamecube Harvest Moons have been spectacular, with Magical Melody being the best. It goes back to the Back to Nature type of characters (a game I also loved) and you can sit down for hours and play without being able to stop. 10 out of 10. Full Review »

    I personally love all Harvest Moon games, and this one didn't disappoint. It's just like all the others out there, but that's exactly the reason why it rocks. The characters are cool, the crop growing is just as fun as always, and the animals are cute and fun to tend to as always. With the wider range of brides or husbands, this makes gaming a lot more fun. This game is definitally one of the best. Go Harvest Moon! Full Review »
