  1. Even after two years, this is still my favourite Harvest Moon game in the whole world ever. Whether you're a fan or a newcomer, Magical Melody is captivating, mixing the best aspects of every game that came before to create the biggest, most involving, most addictive and most challenging entry in this loveliest and most unique of series.

    It's soothing, compulsive and peculiarly thrilling all at once: a perfect little world where working hard brings its own tangible rewards and cows have huge happy faces. Even in this slightly butchered state, it's good to see Magical Melody finally on these shores.
  3. Quotation forthcoming. [May 2008]
  4. It's the 'Simple Life' personified, with all the benefits of running a successful lifestyle block - minus the muss 'n' fuss (not to mention backbreaking labour). Allow yourself a good hour for the learning curve, though.
  5. Magical Melody is a decent game and if you have the time to invest in it your affections toward it will grow.
  6. 65
    Magical Melodies doesn’t foal around. What kernels of entertainment can be extracted from its time-consuming gameplay are let down by lazy aesthetics and an overall confusing design for newcomers to the franchise.
  7. This game actually has less content than the original, and with no other improvements, it's hard to recommend this even at a $30 price point.
