Rated 7 out of 10 by Wolfeh Great plot and storyline, but rather annoying and boring
I've gone through quite a lot of the game so far, but haven't "finished" it yet. From what I have gathered so far, I'm quite impressed by the graphics and storyline, but Natsume really wasn't so keen on the farming aspect in this game, which took most of the fun out of it. I would say the most fun of this game, for me, was exploring, because the world seemed relatively large (and rather confusing at first) and has beautiful graphics. I think if Natsume would have paid more attention to the farming aspect it would have been perfect. The time notifications throughout the day are also very annoying, because it stops your gameplay for a good moment, which I'm not patient enough for, if there was a notification without the stopping it would have been much less, if at all, annoying. The fact that there isn't a way to own a horse in the game or have friendships with the NPCs also took some fun out of it, as I enjoy unlocking those story-lines and who couldn't love a horse? Although you do get an alternative mode of transportation. You also don't get to take care of your animals, aside from brushing cows, its all done automatically. I think the time moves too fast as well, I think it should be slower so you have the time to explore the island and harvest your crops. Aside from that, the storyline is much more interesting compared to the other harvest moons, it focuses on the main character and island mostly, so far I've witnessed one event that was on another character in the game. The main focus of the game is to unlock all of your field, because doing so you go further into the storyline, and that seems to be really it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Jakmaster1 Great Game, fun for everyone!
I am playing this game now, and love the overall experience and feel of it. This is a great story, appropriate for any age group.
