Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town User Reviews

As the Harvest Grows

The good:

1. Heartwarming storyline.
2. Small town, but various dramatic events to unlock!
3. Plenty of neat tricks for each tool, including a hidden one!
4. Trashed farm, but plenty of time to fix 'er up. Maybe plant a crop or two.
5. A numerous amount of ways to make money!
6. Can buy chickens, cows, and sheep to populate the farm, may even find a few other animals along the adventure..
7. Meet the townspeople!
8. Farm life gets lonely, why not get married?

The bad:

1. Time clock's turned on turbo speed! Not enough time in each day.
2. Farm life can get pretty repetitive. Is there anything else to do in a day?
3. Music can be annoying. Do they play any other songs!!?
4. Some goals may never be accomplished. Are some features too difficult to complete?
5. This year someone else is racing, but it used to be Barely. What's with all the spelling errors!?

Summary:

Start off the adventure after visiting the farm of a close friend whom you find has passed on to another life. No wonder he hasn’t been writing back any of your letters.

You met this jolly fellow when you were just a kid having gotten yourself lost on his farm when your parent’s brought you to the town on a vacation. Young and never having been lost and alone before, you’re scared. But when the owner of the farm finds you wondering his crop fields he asks you where your parent’s are but you shake your head, not able to answer. So the old man shows you around the farm, lets you pet his dog, ...

Almost Cream of the Crop

Cute visuals
Solid controls
Variety of tasks
Requires some thought
Special events scattered throughout

The bad:

Terrible audio
Poorly developed characters
Becomes repetitve

Summary:



Video games open up a myriad of possible virtual experiences to people. Taking command of armies against alien invaders, seeking to unleash the power of alchemy on the world, race for the finish in high speed challenges or even partake in a round of golf. But… farming? Natsume has taken a concept that sounds incredibly boring and made a video game out of it. Surprisingly, it's not anywhere near as boring as it sounds.

Plot

Yes, Natsume decided that simply dropping you onto an undeveloped farm would not do, so they crafted a reason for you being there.

The story goes that you visited an old far...

Fun, fun, fun! You'll never put it down.

The good:

- Nice selection of marriage candidates
- Great amount of animals
- Very large farming area

The bad:

- Graphics aren't the best

Summary:

Plot~

While the plot line is a bit basic, the fun is still the same! Raise crops, take care of animals, and build up your farm while earning money and making friends.

While this game will never end, you can't consider the game "beaten" until you've gotten married!

Marriage~

There's a great selection of people to marry. Depending on your preferences, each bachelorette has their own personality, which will fit your certain needs.

But watch out, there's always the chance that your girl will be snatched right from under you! With the addition of rivals and rival cut scenes, it brings about that fee...

SnoopyMaster's FoMT Review

The good:

  • Decent Graphics for a Gameboy Advance game.
  • Ability to get married to a wide variety of bachlorettes.
  • Farming and Ranching gives players plenty of things to do.
  • Having a child.
  • You never really "win", so players will probably be interested in the game for quite awhile.

    The bad:

  • Music gest annoying after awhile.
  • Cannot be a female character.

    Summary:

    This is one of the first Harvest Moon games in the series. It's pretty simple, fun, and easy for most ages to understand. PLayers will start off with a blank farm, no crops, and no animals. From there they must work up to becoming successful, and even married with a child. While you're working at that though, there are several other things that you can also do.

    The marrige concept in this game is very simple, and the girls affection towards your character is displayed in heart colors. As you give her gifts and trigger certain events, the colors will keep changing, and eventually reach red. T...

    IT'S SO COOL!!!

    The good:

    Well pretty much everything but there are several things that I really like about this game such as
    how it's so much like real life in almost every way you date, you get married, you can upgrade your house, you can have children, there are annual events and you can win things in a lot of them, theres little guys tat you can get to do your work for you, you have money problems and you even get mail.

    The bad:

    I really dont like the way that time completely stops when your indoors this is kinda stupid, there are way too many glitches in the game(these include typo's, errors and other general glitches), getting married or even just trying to get the girls to even like you takes way too much time and money (game currency).

    Summary:

    the game is deffinately one of the best games that will ever be released on the GBA. It is so worth a little bit of money because it rocks.

    A lot of people say that that this game is complete trash or is gay or things like that because it doesnt have enough guns or violence in it, but that isn't the only thing that makes games good its really nice to just sit down and cool off with Harvest Moon: Freinds Of Mineral Town.

    I LOVE this game!

    The good:

    Everything!!!!!

    The bad:

    Nothing at all...
    or actually, it would be good to have a change of clothes, be able to pick up any animal, bigger town, more people, stuff like that.

    Summary:

    This is the first game I have ever played on VBA. I say it's THE BEST. It's got different people with different attitudes and personalities, places to go, lots of stuff to do, not to mention surprises. I was surprised at how realistic the game was (apart from the Harvest Sprites and Goddess, and the way you don't die) and how you can marry someone (I found that out the first time I got smart and decided to visit the cheats page). If you've ever played the GBC versions, well, you know how suuuuuucccccckkkky* (sorry about the language, but I HAD to say that) they are compared to this game! Th...
