Rated 10 out of 10 by sundog123 Best Harvest Moon Game Ever
I got this game for Christmas when I was 6. It was my very first game ever. And I loved it so much! There's so much to do and everything is fun! I married Alex, but there's so many choices of potential brides/grooms. Basically, you start off in a little house with a puppy. Your backyard size depends on the area you choose in the beginning of the game. There's Ocean Plot, (somewhat fertile land, a lot of space) River Plot, (fertile land, medium space) and Town plot. (little land, most fertile) Also, when you first start, there's a lot of trees and weeds in your backyard. Chopping trees takes 3 days at the most. Picking weeds takes about 10 seconds at the least. You can farm, raise cattle, or just pick up whatever you find around town for money. I would totally recommend this to girl or boy, from the ages 5 to 10. It's really fun, easy, and the best game you will have played in your life.

This game is really awesome! It was my debut Harvest Moon game and it was great. My favorite part of the game was definitely choosing who you got to marry and having them fall in love with you. I chose Alex because he is the cutest and there are herbs everywhere in town so he is easy to get to like you. The only part of the game that I don't really like was I think that after you get married, guys who bring you gifts should act different and not as though they like you. One of the weird things in the game is how Jamie can be either a girl or a boy depending on if you are a girl or a boy....I always thought that "it" was a girl and if you want you can marry "it" even though "it" is mean to you the whole game. I only have 6 hearts with "it" so I'm not sure if he/she gets any nicer. All over it was a good game and obtaining all the Notes is fun and challenging (for some notes).

I have not played this game in a while but from what I remember... it is soooo long! But it is still a reeeeeaaaaaallyyy good game. Now, I have had one glitch. When it was summer and it started to get later in the day and the waves would appear my character would start to move really slow infront of my ranch. It might just be my system or something but H ave also had the same problem in Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility. You can have horses in this game. Yes, you can have have more than one horse witch is a plus from other harvest moon games where you could only have one horse. You can just have horses even! I do not reccomemend that though because then you would have to fish and be a gatherer for money. So all in all I reccomend this game greatly to all people.

This game is really fun, It's an absolutely great game for anyone who loves the Harvest Moon series, and it's also fun for pretty much anyone. It has a great story line, with many possible spouses and plenty of time-consuming tasks. It also has great graphics, easily beating out some other gamecube games. It's also not one of those games that gets boring after a while. This game stays fun for a long time, giving you plenty of playing time. You even have many options of what to do with your farm, but it offers a higher challenge to succeed than other harvest moon games. The town is also better than other versions of this game, because it offers a higher variety of places that you can visit to buy things, get things made, or just hang out and eat some yummy food!
Rated 10 out of 10 by DKandDK Best in the series
In my opinion this the best harvest moon game created. It is better than the next best harvest moon, a wonderful life, for a few key reasons. One of those reasons is beacause there are 10 potential brides instead of just three like in a woderful life. The mining in this game is the best in harvest moon games to date. The fishing though easy is a blast. the music is great and does not get repetitive and the energy bar does not run out too easily. A few problems with this game are the graphics make the characters look fat and It can get too easy to make money but other than that the game is one of the 10 best games of all time get it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by HarvestPlayer One Of The Best!
By far the best Harvest Moon game I've played. It's easy, simple, and not to hard to make money. The characters are adorable especially when that character blushes or kiss. The cut scenes with your partner are to melt for (If you’re a girl who loves the romance)
There are a few annoyance in the gameplay though
Letting the cows/sheep/horses out of the barn, the characters looks as if they're still children, when snowing you cannot grow crops, when a snowstorm you've have to stay inside your house and sleep, and the mini games are dreadful.
But all in all, awesome game! I love it!

This game is a masterpeice. Although at first I hated it. Your character is slow, and looks like he has problems, the game looks too chartoonish, and tyou don't start with a barn nor chicken coop. So I just went back to a Wonderful Life. Then I don't know why, but I popped it back in. Then I relized this game was amazing. Mining is the best in the series to date, collecting music notes added an objective in the game to save the Harvest Goddess, and buying every block of land I could get was sooo much fun. So over all... BUY IT. Oh and gamestop it's Magical Melody.
Rated 10 out of 10 by RoxyRPG Amazing game...
I love the Harvest Moon series, and so far this has been my favorite one. Way more bachelors/bachelotettes than preivious ones I've played, easier to ship, easier to find things TO ship, time goes by faster, but not too fast, the menu shows you how much the people, animals, farm animals, and pets all like you, etc. I even got my boyfriend hooked on this game. Definitely worth the 10 dollars, and I highly suggest the GC version over the Wii version. Involve a wii remote in any old game and it becomes a lot more tedious than necessary.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Mandi123 Could be better, but still an OK game.
I have to admit i played this game for a while, before getting completely frustrated with it, But then decided after a few months to try it again. Getting married takes F-O-R-E-V-E-R, so even after a year (in real time lol) i still haven't done so. In the beginning i hated the cartoon style, wich is very unrealistic. And the daily routine becomes old after a while(as most other games). But besides these issues, I think experienced H.M. players would find this game fun to try to master.
