Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility
Best Game EVER for WII
this was my first harvest moon game for the Wii i got it last Christmas from my parents and i did NOT stop playing it all day (from 2am - 2am the next day) i was up 24 hours playing wanting to know all the mysteries of the Harvest Goddess, flirting with eligible bachelors, and taking care of my far. i love the music from this game . i love it so much that its my ringtone! such calming sounds and cute graphics make for a looooooong gaming period :D
Quick game if you have the time
Overall I'd say that this game is relatively good, one problem, though, If you have time on your hands, you will finish this game much faster than you want to. I've been playing the Harvest Moon games for quite some time, and this is by far one of my favorites. The time it takes for an in-game day to pass I feel is just right, the variety of things you can do is cool, and the characters you meet are fun. I finished the main story line of this game in about four days when I was sick (so think about 9 hours a day) and I was pretty bummed how there was nothing really left to do in the game besides pop out a kid and expand a bunch of stuff. Another thing that bugged me was the noises that the character you're playing as makes. Things like "there there" every time you pet an animal gets pretty annoying pretty fast, but hey it could be worse. There are also a few places in the game where everything not necessarily glitches but lags (eg. your character walking slow when they're in a certain area of town, then again it may have just been something in my game) Overall- If you're looking for casual game, whether you're new to the harvest moon series or not, I would highly recommend this.
Tree of Tranquility
This is my second Harvest Moon game and I LOVE it. I have four Harvest Moon games and this is by far my FAVORITE!!! I can play on it for hours on end. I thought it was cool that you could play as your kid again and again and again. I love all of the music, and it changes at heart events and every season. To me this was better than Mario Party 8! there are much more bachelors and bachlorettes than in other Harvest Moon Games. The graphics are pretty good. You can buy cows, sheep, horses, ostriches, ducks, chickens, and silkworms, as you can see many more than past games. There are also various animals around the island such as cats, dogs, turtles, and many more. Also, if you feed them what they like and talk to them every day, you can make them your pets. You can have only five pets at a time. Once you have a pet, you can pet it, take it on walks, and it stays at your house. I have the orange tabby as my pet and it gets mad for absolutely NO reason at all and it stays mad for a LONG time. Other than that, this game, to me, has no flaws. It is the BEST game EVER!!!!
AW YEAH BABY
first of all, i want to say this is a GREAT game!!! i cant stop playing it!!! its awesome how in this game when you are married, your wife actually has a schedule. she doesn't just walk around your farm like in other games. if your a boy, your wife quits her job and does lots of shopping(don't worry dudes, she doesn't use your hard earned money). if your a girl, the husband keeps his job. one of the best parts in my mind is how when you wake up, your spouse makes you a lunch!! awesome!! other than marriage, this game is very fun. a new thing that has been added is the fact that you can work part-time at local business. you can get a lot of money by doing that. but i hate how your character has one hair sticking straight up. its soooooo weird looking!!! its also annoying how you need to collect not only lumber, but material stone. but other than that, very addicting. this game is sooooooooooooooo worth buying!!
This game is PERFECT!!!
Okay lets get this straight, this game is absolutely perfect for anyone! Ofcourse I married Gill (I'm a girl by the way), He might start out rude and stuck up but once he falls in love with you you would NEVER want to be away from him (thats why I'm so addicted!) I actually have a crush on him. Anyway, my oppinion on places to work would absolutely be On The Hook, When you start working for them they pay you atleast pay you 300G but once you work for them nonstop they pay you ALOT because its open from 6:00 AM to 10:00 PM. Once you get your house up to level 4 its 2 story. So pretty much this is an AMAZING game!!! I'll try to give a description of the bachellors and bachelorettes but they might not be completely accurate. Gill: Gill is the (one and only) son of Mayor Hamilton. He is alittle snooty, pompous, or stuck up but he can be really sweet at times! Toby: Toby is the nephew of the man who works at on the hook. He is mostly found fishing or napping. Luke: Luke works at the Carpenters. In the beggining you might think he's snooty and stuck up, but hes actually not. Annissa: Anissa works at where you buy seeds, shes actually really easy to get hearts for. Kathy: Kathy works at the bar, she is sometimes found at brownie ranch or the blacksmiths. Elli: Elli works at the Town Hall with Gill, some people might think that she cant be married so if you think she cant, why dont you try and actually find out. Selena: Selena is from Toucan Island, she might seem rude or mean when you first talk to her but thatsjust because her parents had a big fight so she left home. So thats all the beginning people that you meet. I hope this was helpful!
The dest harvest moon yet
I, my self, am I harvest moon fan. I love the games and have played almost all of them. I even played a few rune factorys. But out of all of them, this is the lone best. You start as a guy (or girl) that has just came here for vacation. When you get there, you quickly figure out that the island isnt as good as you heard. But once you land, theres a storm and you are unable to go back. You also learn that the mother tree of the island is dieing. So you gain one of 4 houses on the island, and from there, its your choise what to do. Raise crops, porspect, raise animals, woo a sutible mate and raise a kid, part time jobs, decorate and upgrade your house, just about anything. Eventualy, you will find 2 haves of a tapestry that tells you that you to water the random, lone flowers around the island. When you do, a sprite comes out and tells you that you need to recreate a rainbow. Your ultimate goal is to create 5 rainbows. The more rainbows you create, the more the town is developed, the more people move in, and everything like that. Any harvest moon vet. will be happy with this game and any newcomes will be happy with what they get.
Harvest moon tree of tranquility re- reviewed
First of all I must apologize for writing a review for this game twice but I want to let you all know that this is the best harvest moon game I have ever played. Though I have not played animal parade yet). The gameplay is the best out of any harvest moon game because it offers the most to do. Like go fishing which I like the best because its not too easy like magical melody and its not too hard like a wonderful life and it fetches not too bad of prices. why not try to find a wife, there are many too chose from and none of them are really ugly or really hard to get to like you. It takes a while to impress them though( 1/10 of a heart each day if you give them something each day.) Why not get a part time job, they dont pay much but they make the time go by faster. In speaking of time the time in this game is similart the time in magical melody, not a wonderful life. Money isnt overly difficult to make in this game but it isnt so easy that you run out of things too buy at the end of the year. Also there is an energy bar in this game but it is pretty reasonable, except sometimes if you catch a rare fish it could drain most of your energy. There re 30 days in a season and the music changes from one great tune to another. Also the harvest sprites and godess are not anoying in this game like they usually are and the story is not absolutely necassary unless you want everybody in the town. In the story you must restore the island to its former self by getting ingredients to make rainbows which is really fun surprisingly. One major setback this game has though is that the mining is pathetic. It takes forever to find something and when you do it usually is an invaluabe wonderful which you could have changed into glass . so if you get this game unless you are bored stay away from mining it is too much of an energy waster. When you build or upgrade buildings in this game you have to get your own lumber and stone, which takes a whole days energy, sometimes more. Also the zoom feature is pretty much broken. Festivals are nice sometmes you can buy stuff there and other times you win a prize which I can never seem to get. Pets are also cool in this game because there is such a good assortment but you have to win them over for them to become your pet and that is harder than winning a villager over. Animals are half fun because the barn anuimals are great including the new ostitches whic you can ride and they produce one egg per four days. The coop though is an absolute disaster the chickens and ducks are everywhere and it is really annoying to feed them and it takes up half the day. but the silk worms on the other hand are great because they have their own special places and produce one valuable cocoon every four days which is reall valuable when you turn it to silk yarn then dye it. Thegraphics are beautiful in the game ana are very realistic but the sound on the other hand is horendous tiiny at times and thunder sounds so bad it sounds like someone flushing a toilet. raising a kid is a blast too and he/or she grows up in detailed stages not as detailed as a wondeful life though. Also rival couples can get married and have children too. The lasting appeal is so gtood that it the number four most played game for me according to the nintendo channel only under super smash bros brawl mario kart wii and animal crossing city folk. one of the best simulations created and ceratainly meets a harvest moon fans standards. I WOULD RECOMEND THIS TO ANYONE.
DON'T YOU ALL SEE?!?!
They've combined HM: A Wonderful Life and HM: Magical Melody! You can be a male or female! There are many new people, animals and places! You can get a part time job for crying out loud (and there are a lot of jobs)!!! So, lets see... designing your home and inside of it, buying and changing clothes, you can have an ostrich and whatever else they're hiding. The chickens eat these huge worms that are on a conveyer belt (check the pics). More fruits and veggies! I believe you start off with a run down, hole in the roof farm, but you can spruce that baby right up! Anyway, I've always loved the way they make the food look. I did learn a lot about Japanese dishes from HM in genera. Hey, if you didn't enjoy ANY series then, duh! Not the game for you! This game will definitely be the Harvest moon of ALL TIME... unless a better one comes out, which I doubt. So I'll stick with this one until they create a virtual simulation of harvest moon in the year 2050.
Kill Plenty Of Time
So far this is the best Harvest Moon game out there. It isn't like Magical Melody where it only takes half a year to get rich or like A Wonderful Life where you struggle for one lousy meal or like Animal Parade where time goes by very slowly. The graphics are incredible even though the boy character looks...well...not too masculine and with a weird hair-do but it really matter. Unlike Magical Melody none of the characters look like chubby toddlers running around. Moving on to gameplay. This game always kills hours of my day. On avarage i play about 6 hours a day(in real life not the game). The way time goes by in game is identical to that of Magical Melody which gives you enough time to do al sorts of things such as fishing, mining, and even working a part time job. Like all the other games this game offers you chance to get married and see other people get married. Like A Wonderful life you can see your child grow up. Once you feel that you've led a full life you can hand over your rucksack to your child and even play as them. A short summary of the sound. Awesome. To conclude this game is amazing and is honestly Natsume's best Harvest Moon game yet.
First and Favourite HM!
So, HM Tree of Tenquility was my first harvest moon game to ever try. My friend got it and became instantly obsessed, so I thought it might be worth it to take a shot at it, and I also became instantly obsessed. The opening isn't really long and boring, so your not jabbing the A button on your Wii remote to try and skip through it all. And you get to choose where you want your ranch to be loacted in Carmael River District! This becomes quiet handy if you have an idea on how you'll be spending your time. So once your into the game, more places begin to unlock, and so does the story line. Thus your game has actually begun! The challenge isn't just trying to expand the island or to make it nice again, your actually trying to save the Harvest Goddess... and the challenge isn't completely easy! This easily became my favourite HM game... I played a few others, but none seemed to have the same pull as Tree Of Tranquility. I mean, you could have the absolute perfect life! And don't forget, the game never really seems to end. If you end up having a son or daughter, once you complete the game, you can send your child on an adventure, and the game picks up yet again! (As long as you have an open save slot) So... I definately recomed this game to ANYONE who enjoys HM gmaes... because i think this is the best one yet.
