  1. PSM3 Magazine UK
    It won't convince some, but the more open-minded will revel in these calm, cheerful, engaging fields. Gorgeous. [May 2007, p.68]
  2. Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    Takes time to blossom but grows into the kind of game PSP was made for. One to enjoy little and often rather than in long sessions. [Mar 2007, p.109]
  3. Playstation Official Magazine UK
    This is a gentle, heartwearming experience that perfectly suits the PSP format. Blissful. [June 2007, p.102]

    Ironically for what is essentially a farming sim, what some will find most off putting about Innocent Life: A Futuristic Harvest Moon is the very nature of the game and its slow paced, limited action approach. Consider it a story wrapped around a non-aggressive resource management game and you'll have a good idea of what to expect.
  5. PSM Magazine
    Really, Harvest Moon isn't about leveling up skills, getting rich, or beating the system; it's about enjoying idyllic surroundings and having some old-fashioned, farming fun in the process. [July 2007, p.82]
  6. There are no words that can perfectly convey what this game will do to you. It initially seems basic, short, and maybe a little childish. But if you stay long enough to learn how to harvest crops (which takes no more than 10 minutes), you’ll be around for another 10 hours and beyond.
  7. There's not too much negative to say about the design of this game. Extremely good looking graphics, a solid formula, and beautiful music really make this game seem like one you would really want to check into. But I would caution those that pick this one up, simply because the gameplay becomes a little strained.

    While it was nice to see some new things for the Harvest Moon series, Innocent Life just didn't give me the thrill I was hoping for. There were some good ideas, but they were poorly executed.

    May be a bit repetitive, but adventure mode is really fun and original.
