    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.

    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.

    After playing Harvest Moon 64, Harvest Moon (GB), Harvest Moon 2 (GB), and Harvest Moon 3 (GBC), this game has become very addictive! It may After playing Harvest Moon 64, Harvest Moon (GB), Harvest Moon 2 (GB), and Harvest Moon 3 (GBC), this game has become very addictive! It may not be the greatest game when you start, but as you get into the game, it gets extremely fun! I would recommend anyone who likes RPG type games with a little creativity in it! Creativity consisting of growing crops which you water and harvest, learning recipies for your cookbook, marrying a girl (5 to choose from), and having a child on a successful farm! This game is one of the best games ever to hit the market! If you have any questsions about this game! Please email me at Krnnamja08@hotmail.com Expand
