    Run, don't walk. Visit the valley and lose yourself in nature like millions of other fans have! [Issue #30 – November/December 2017, p. 26]

    Aside from a few technical blips, Stardew Valley remains a shining Stardrop in its genre, welcoming back fans of the series that inspired it and inviting newcomers to relax in the valley, too.

    It is a truly magical experience; games can often be enjoyable but they don’t all manage to be as captivating as this. This is the sort of game that ideally requires a significant amount of time to be invested; the enjoyment doesn’t necessarily come from the day-to-day actions you perform, but rather from the general growth of pride, satisfaction, and sense of security as the days go by. Fans of games such as Harvest Moon and Animal Crossing will be right at home here and, for those who aren’t, there is a decent chance this game might just surprise you. For the asking price the risk couldn’t be more worth it.

    The portability of the Nintendo Switch makes this undoubtedly the best way to play Stardew Valley. Unless you are really keen on modding the game, the combination of easy portability and excellent controls makes this a staple in any well-rounded Switch library. It's still the same great farm simulator it was on PC - robust, full of secrets, and comes with an inescapable charm that will keep pulling you back in, season after season.

    The best farming sim ever finds its ideal home on the Switch, with gameplay and hardware that complement each other perfectly.

Fans of the Harvest Moon franchise will see an amazing sequel to those games. It does what Harvest Moon did and fixes a lot of the issues. The game play is fun and relaxing. The town and the people feel alive and filled with personality, including some serious subject matter. The romance options are fun, and include same sex relations for all bachelors and bachelorettes. The fun in managing your farm and exploring the world is entertaining. Expand

Being portable makes itThe only game I bought full price on the Switch is also the only game I have 100 plus hours of gameplay on the system. Being portable makes it easier to play anywhere and I often lose track of time playing it. One of the most enjoyable games I played in a very long time: it's addictive to grow you farm, complete quests and do a ton more things. There's always something else to do and ways to make it a even better experience. Expand

    Lovely sound design

    Fun gameplay
    Good story (don't expect an epic amazing storyline but it's pretty good writing for a video game and has a lot of heart)

    Cons:
    Character portraits are sort of ugly
    Repetitive gameplay
    Combat isn't that great
    Controls are annoying (it's easy to accidentally skip an important cutscene, give away a priceless item or blow up half your farm by pressing the wrong button)

    Poured about 200 hours into this game and I still have lots left to do.

Персонаж неповоротлив, враги игнорируют отталкивающие удары, персонаж порой вообще не слушается твоих нажатий и я уверен, что я не один такой, у кого была эта проблема, ставлю 0 потому-что игра добавила эту дрянь (боевки) как обязательную дляигры механику, но нервов проходить через нее нет вовсе, поэтому в определенный момент я настолько морально устал от этой "крутой" фичи, что отпало желание играть в "это", и других способов продолжения игры нет, так как надо лезть за ресурсами, а нервы жалко. И кто подумает что, "надо брать больше еды", "играй в компании" , "у тебя плохой уровень игры" идите и играйте дальше, боевка - это бич этой игры, она ужасна, она не интересна, она идет игре во вред и это факт, не видел и не поверю людям, которые будут говорить что она хорошая.
