    Be forewarned: This game could grow on you, one of the subtlest treats for the Playstation.
  2. Ignore Harvest Moon and you'll be ignoring one of the cutest and most original RPGs you're ever likely to see. It ought to be on everyone's 'must play' list.
  3. Surprisingly one of the most satisfying role-playing experiences to be found on the PlayStation.

    Gets high points for being unique and reaching out to a new crowd of fun-loving would-be farmers. But as aforementioned, I personally don't find heaps of enjoyment in games this incredibly slow.
  5. The quintessential Harvest Moon, and Natsume will be hard-pressed to top this one in terms of added gameplay, additional farming tasks to complete, areas to explore and women to woo. For fans of the series, this is a must-buy, and a must-see for those looking for something a little different.

    Harvest Moon isn't for the impatient gamer, but those who stick with it long enough will discover its rustic charm.

    One of the best, if not the best Harvest Moon game. Has pretty much everything you want from a Harvest Moon game. Tons of crops, tons of characters, so much storyline and events that it might just be to much, and plenty of secrets. If you are a Harvest Moon fan and have yet to play this one, I feel bad for you, because it's that good. Collapse

    I had so much fun playing this game it's just stupid - pure and innocent, cute, quite long: the perfect game. This will be one of the first games I'll show to my children. Expand
