Farming Fun!

The good:

Impressive for a farming game. Basically you are a young boy who comes to visit your grandfather's old farm realising that it's gone to shambles. Fortunately Mayor Thomas explains that with your help. You can repair the old farm to make it look better with crops and animals for produce.

There are there are 6 types of animals you can keep at the farm. Your faithful dog who will chase away any wild dogs that may try and get any animals that may be outside on the farm. Your clucky little chickens which are easy to take care of and lay many eggs which is a good start off for selling them for money. Your cows which are happy when you give them a brushing daily. They will produce Milk for you to eat or sell. Your sheep are also happy when you brush them daily and will produce wool for you, but it takes a short while for their wool to grow back before you can sheer it off again which you can sell. Your lovely horse, it doesn't do much but you can enter your horse in a race once he's fully grown. Last but not least, when you get a fishing rod you can keep fish in your little pond and feed them daily. They will grow big and multiply as time goes on and you'll be able to sell them or cook them.

There's so many places to go in the town, which fills up your day completely. The towns people are very friendly and are happy to be of service a lot of the time. Thomas likes to come by your house to remind you of up coming festivals, which are so much fun to participate in. There are many festivals you can go to. Also out of 5 of the lovely girls from the farm, you can win their heart and marry one of them. The girls to choose from are Karen, Mary, Ann, Popuri and Ann. You will also experience fun events with certain villagers when the time comes.

The bad:

The graphics were impressive back in it's time, but not as great as today's graphics now. But still good. One thing that constantly gets quite head wrecking is the music. Very repetitive that it becomes a nuisance.

Summary:

This game is wonderfully entertaining, especially for a game that involves farming. The game is quite long which keeps you busy for quite sometime. You can marry, have a child and continue your work on the farm. You must pass the first three years and see how everyone thinks you've done with the farm. ^^

YOU JUST GOTTA OWN IT!!!!!!!

The good:

It's a very good game even though you might get bored sometimes, it is full of surprises. Cooking, festivals, marriage, a kid and a farm, what else could you ask for. And characters have different personalities. You can receive gifts and/or rewards in unexpected ways. And you have the help of the Harvest Sprites to make your job easy. Hey and you have a hot spring to rest and revive your energy and to boil eggs for extra money.

The bad:

Time moves quite fast. Making a girl like you is a bit expensive but worth it. This game might seem boring in the winter when you don't have anything to do. I can hardly find some negative things about this game at all.

Summary:

You just need to farm good enough and you can just play for the next couple of years.

Animals and crops may seem a bit boring so just make the harvest sprites take care of them

This is almost perfect. Just look hard enough and you'll find this game somewhere.

$5-$15

The good:

excellent game that i will guarantee you will play for at least 6 full nights (until things get a bit repetitive near winter) but then it gets better...

events are awesome and ann/karen are hotter than h3ll

The bad:

it can be boring at some times...
i think the clock runs a bit too fast
(roughly 30 seconds is an hour)

Summary:

you can find this if you scan the bins hard enough.. a true treasure for $10

HM: BTN

Summary:

One of the best games I've played in a long time. Most people wont admitt its good simply because it seems childish and stupid. But its extreamly addictive and is very easy to get stuck in. Basicaly you live in a small town where you own the only farm (like all the games). It's your grandpas old farm and now its your chance to run it for yourself. You start of with hardly any money, and you have to turn the wastland into a brillinet farm...in only 3 years! You can buy up to 10 chickens and breed them, 10 cows, and 10 sheep as well as get a horse. There are festivles in the town on ce...

Play Harvest Moon?. This is a game which takes courage to admit you like, something you'll secretly loan to your friends and pledge them to fealty not to laugh. It's fun, addictive and repetitive in all the right places and everyone will at least attempt this game and some will enjoy it and some will defend their maturity and condemn it. I like it from time to time, when I feel like simulating a farmer that is...
