    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun and Creative I bought this game back in 2013. I have always loved Harvest Moon and when I finally got my first 3DS I bought this instantly. I fell out of games for a long time and just about a year ago I finally picked it back up after being addicted to animal crossing new leaf. I am very addicted to this game once again. There's a lot to do, while sometimes I do get bored, I still find myself playing this a lot when I can. The bachelors are awesome too I am having a hard time picking! I recommend this for all ages.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun Harvest Moon game for veterans and new comers Harvest Moon: A New Beginning is an exciting new step for the series. It introduces quite a few new features, such as new marriage options, the ability to customize your farmer, and the opportunity to customize the town as a whole. Similar to Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar and Sunshine Islands, ANB is a game about your own personal progression. You start out with only around five villagers and you can only get new game features after accomplishing goals laid out in "Restoration Plans". After you have finished one, more people move in and the town expands. Because of this mechanic, ANB can be a bit confusing for people who aren't accustomed to Harvest Moon games. Honestly, even though I have played Harvest Moon games since Friends in Mineral Town, I still had to sometimes go online to help me figure out how to accomplish things in a timely manner. Even if you are going as efficiently as possible you cannot get everyone in the first year of gameplay. This can mean the game can go on longer than some people would like, but personally I enjoyed it. The characters were fine, I loved being able to create my own look as a farmer, and I still find myself sometimes checking back in on my farm even though I've owned the game since its launch. It's not difficult so newer farmers will be able to have a fun time, while older ones can have fun exploring the more intricate features ANB has to offer. Over all, ANB is a very solid Harvest Moon game!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Harvest Moon Ever! I have played all of the Harvest Moon games, and absolutely love the series. Harvest Moon: A New Beginning absolutely takes the cake for the best Harvest Moon of all time however. Not only are you able to raise livestock and crops as in previous Harvest Moon games, but you can also build up the town. And when I say build it, I literally mean you build the buildings, street lamps, benches, everything and place them wherever you want. The farm has 3 separate areas which make for a a ton of farming opportunities, and the tool upgrades are better than ever. Foraging makes it's traditional return as does gathering insects which help quite a bit in the beginning for making money. As a bonus tip, in the beginning of the game save everything as you will need about 99% of it. Save your best crops for future festivals, and cook and sell the excess for profit. Overall, this was a truly epic game and I would highly recommend it to any Harvest Moon or Rune Factory fan. Additionally I might add that there is a multiplayer feature that allows you to go into a field and harvest other player's livestock. If you don't want to ruin your game experience I would recommend against this as the quality of item you get is dependent on the animal. So you can go into multiplayer as soon as you unlock it and milk a cow to get 5 star golden milk which sells for a ton and really destroys the game flow. Happy farming everybody!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing This game is excellent! I could spend all day playing it. Compared to the game that came before this one, there are a lot more options! The deal on this game right now is superb as well; I thoroughly recommend buying this product.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I thought my thumb was going to fall off My biggest problem with the game is the excessive need to run around and collect 50 some items out in the woods. My thumb hurt after about 30 mins of playing. And yes, I am familiar with many Harvest Moon games, unfortunately I keep thinking I will enjoy one as much as HM 64. It does look great, one of the better harvest moons as of late but that's not saying much. The characters fall very flat. It left no lasting impression with me and I traded it in about 3 months of owning it.
