  1. Play this along with "Shadow Of The Colossus" and you'll remember how bloody lovely life can be.
  2. Ripe with early frustration, but put in a bit of hard work and Harvest Moon does deliver a bumper crop of fun. [Feb 2006, p.90]
  3. 60
    What does make a difference, though, is the drastic drop in framerate, increase in load times and muddy graphics.

    Little overwhelming in the beginning if you're green to the series, but once you get the hang of it you can't seem to turn it off!

    This is my honest review as a huge fan of the Harvest Moon Series

    Do yourself a huge favor and buy the GameCube version. Harvest Moon A
    Wonderful Life on the GameCube was the game that first got me into the Harvest Moon series, and when I found A Wonderful Life Special Edition on PSN I couldn't pass it up. However the hardware capabilities lack miles behind in what the GameCube could do. There were many times when I played this that I longed to just pull out my GameCube and play that version again. This game brings a lot of new things to the mix however in my opinion they were executed very poorly. Overall this game feels like a missed opportunity to make one of the best Harvest Moon games even better. If you are having a hard time finding the GameCube version and want to try the game out, go for it, but in the long run this version does not bring the game justice. Full Review »
