    Another fun and interesting iteration in the Harvest Moon franchise. Not the best by any means and a bit unambitious, but enjoyable anyway.

    There’s nothing really new or interesting in Harvest Moon: Light of Hope. Even if it’s still the same chill, low-pace game, it’s technically outdated, and too far from Story of Seasons and Stardew Valley’s richness.

    Not "Harvest Moon" as it is not made by Marvelous!. Do not come looking for a Harvest Moon game without doing some research first. This isNot "Harvest Moon" as it is not made by Marvelous!. Do not come looking for a Harvest Moon game without doing some research first. This is only Harvest Moon in title.

    Also, this is NOT Stardew Valley in the same way that "Story of Seasons" (the new Marvelous! made Harvest Moon) is NOT Stardew Valley, either.

    This game is just a poor excuse for Natsume trying to make money off a brand while not letting it die off, as it is evident that the developers who worked on it just learned how to make a game probably last year... however, that's no excuse for some people who are saying this is nothing like old Harvest Moon (now called Story of Seasons) or Stardew Valley. Obviously it isn't since the developers are completely different people.

    TL;DR Game is boring (I've played on Switch, PS4 and PC) and offers only very, very little fun. People who bought it expecting it was an official Harvest Moon title, or comparable to Stardew, either didn't google this before buying or are just plain dumb.

    Bought this game without research thinking it would be the same Harvest Moon I grew up to and loved. I was very wrong, Game's too bland mostBought this game without research thinking it would be the same Harvest Moon I grew up to and loved. I was very wrong, Game's too bland most of the features from the old games were gone like the calendar, the wolves, choosing which equipment to use, carrying stuffs like weeds and the stones now you just break everything which is lame plus a lot more...they should change the title to "Mining Moon" as I did more Mining than farming. The Graphics were really bad, I think the graphics from Harvest moon back to nature was better than this one. Verdict: Don't buy the game heck I wish I could still refund my money and get back my hours for playing this game. Expand
