    This game is a complete ripoff, do not buy it, I repeat DO NOT buy it. The graphics have been stepped down earlier than N64! Your character looks retarted, and old skills have been limited. Your stamina bar prevents you from travel or work.

  1. It's also undoubtedly Harvest Moon's high point, expanding the freedom of play while retaining the bright, simple aesthetics and pantomimed emotion that have defined the series.
  2. I've been utterly hypnotised by Harvest Moon: Magical Melody from the moment I laid my hands on it, even watching my girlfriend play it for hours on end (her time spent playing probably a tenfold increase on mine) and I still don't feel that we've even begun to scratch the surface.

    It's definitely the best home-console game in the series, and the extra depth and involvement that it brings to the table will be irresistible to Harvest Moon fans. [July 2006, p.126]
